Studies tell us that about 50% of people leave their companies to get away from their manager. Clearly those people were in toxic relationships – but that’s them, not you... right? Actually these same statistics tell us there’s a 50% probability that someone who left your team did so because of you.

Employee engagement and loyalty can’t be bought with a great salary or benefits, but there is something that smart managers can do to make the relationship work.

This hands-on, interactive workshop takes a seriously FUN approach to developing leadership skills. During the two-hour session, participants will be invited to solve the puzzles of creating a positive environment where employees can feel supported and successful, and where you’ll learn to be the best boss you can be!

If you’re a leader, or aspire to be one someday, you need to be part of this workshop. Laura and Kirsten will show you what you can do to inspire loyalty and retain your staff.
