“It’s Okay to Be the Boss” Jenifer Lambert | Terra Staffing Group
Congratulations! You’re the boss. If being the boss is so great why does it sometimes feel so bad? Managing people is harder and more high-pressure today than ever before. With multiple generations in the workforce all needing something slightly different, a culture that tells managers that they need to somehow conjure up more “engaged” employees and a competitive marketplace that requires that you have a well-trained, highly committed, customer focused team in place—it’s not getting easier anytime soon to be “the boss.”
In this session, I will share with you the management systems and strategies that we have used to grow our business to over 100 staff employees producing higher than industry average gross profit, with single digit turnover, delivering award-winning levels of service.
We will cover:
No theory here—this comes straight from my staffing business. Whether you have 2 employees or 200, these tools and tactics will help you get more results AND more satisfaction out of your job as a leader and manager
- · Hiring & selection (hint: start with the right people)
- · Training and onboarding for quick success
- · Addressing the thorny management issues
- · Performance management that actually drives results
- · Generational opportunities (no Millennial bashing allowed)
