Leadership Institute Series
It’s complicated. We know! You have attracted great employees by offering benefit plans, good salaries, but how do you retain them? A savvy leader inspires and motivates team members, a poor leader has the opposite effect. Productivity declines, employee morale diminishes and eventually top performers start looking for employment elsewhere.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you inspire and motivate team members?
- Do you have good relationships with your team members?
- Can you deal with employees in a positive way that maintains and enhances their self-esteem?
- Have you created a team atmosphere by empowering team members, allowing them to participate in setting goals, solving problems and making decisions when possible?
If you cannot answer YES to these questions, then this 4-part webinar series is for you! Discover and explore how you can develop and inspire your team!

The easiest time to deal with a conflict or challenge is when the issue first shows itself. Unfortunately, many leaders decide to postpone having a critical conversation with a team member. What’s the result? Not only does the issue not go away, it festers and grows until you’re finally forced to have the dreaded critical conversation. The truth is a critical conversation doesn’t have to be negative. Critical conversations are opportunities to help coach and guide our teammates’ performance. When we choose not to deal with conflict early on, we make our jobs and the jobs of those we lead harder. Critical issues never go away on their own. They only grow into a harsher, sometimes catastrophic level. How to have a productive critical conversations is focused on teaching leaders:
