Marc is a best-selling author and uses the insights and strategies from his book, Power Shift, blended with over thirty years of experience. Marc helps leaders, executives, middle managers and small business entrepreneurs who want to learn proven processes to create a high-performance culture that can increase productivity, retention and financial performance so they can spend less time managing and more time growing their business.
3 ways to create a collaborative workforce environment that nurtures higher productivity, retention and financial performance.
When people are doing the work they love with people they enjoy for a company they respect they are naturally engaged high-performers. They get more done with less effort and add energy to the workplace that can be contagious. Creating a high-performance environment is especially important for leaders because when they love the work they are doing and the people they lead, the organization, the people in it, families, communities, and entire nations thrive.
Influential leaders have been the impetus behind every significant transformation throughout history and will need to be equally as influential through the challenges organizations face today. But to be influential, it’s essential to know what those you seek to lead want and expect.
In Power Shift: The New Rules of Engagement for Leaders you will discover how the power of influence can move people of every generation to heights of effectiveness most never imagined. We will also:
- Explore the emerging workforce and the values they embrace that are impacting business.
- Take a closer look at the employee disengagement factor and determine why it’s so high and what can be done about it.
- Present the three primary leadership types that exist now and which one will lead us, most effectively into the future.
- Look at why the traditional management model no longer works and what will replace it.
- Address the eight most damaging leadership myths.
- Present a management structure that will lead us into the future and actually works for all generations.
- Examine two key factors for fully engaged people.
Clearly, companies with highly engaged workers are more productive and more profitable plus their customers are more satisfied and loyal. Employee engagement is the competitive edge we seek regardless of the product, service or industry. Power Shift – The New Rules of Engagement for Leaders is your beginning guide to understand the changing workplace and what you can do to not only stay in the game but grow with less stress.
The GOLD ZONE helps leaders and managers determine how healthy their group, team or company is. The GOLD ZONE is a way to determine the overall health of your organization using an Organizational Litmus Test and eleven principals derived from many well run and profitable companies that have endured over time.
This is a valuable resource and diagnostic to help you determine how you can take your company to the next level. To the degree that your company is not operating in the Gold Zone, there are increased challenges that don’t necessarily have to be there. Awareness is the key first step in any change process. It is essential for taking purposeful actions that will lead to a truly high-performance workplace.
The number one goal of organizations today is finding exceptional leaders to effectively guide and engage a generationally diverse workforce. The Seven Essentials focuses on the practical insights, skills and tools leaders need to become masterful at leading people in a way that considers the subtle differences that happen every day with issues like work ethic, communication, career outlook, and expectations. These seven essentials provide the baseline for strong, effective and high-performance leadership that can truly help any company, team or organization survive and thrive in the face of the irresistible force that is changing how we do business.
One of the wisest investments a company can make is providing training and coaching to improve the interpersonal skills for all employees and especially those on the leadership track. The most effective and profitable organizations all have one thing in common; they identify and develop great leaders. Many use the highly acclaimed CORE Series Profiles to help leaders develop flexing strategies for improved conversations, coaching and outcomes especially in the realm of an increasingly diverse multigenerational workforce.
Research shows that more than 95% of what prevents us from moving forward boldly and realizing our goals is non-physical. In other words, it’s all in our minds. For virtually every person on this planet the subconscious mind is at work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week working to do two things: ensure our physical and conceptual survival. In Success Is Just Around The Block learn how the subconscious mind and some simple laws of physics can be combined to create one of the greatest forces on the planet for human accomplishment.
