Are your people motivated and energized about doing great things for clients, for the company and for themselves? Do they have want they to need to grow personally and professionally? Or are they stressed out, checked out and overworked?

This session reveals what high-performance organizations are doing differently and gives you solutions to put these ideas into action. While obtaining an ideal culture isn't easy, it is entirely achievable when it becomes a mission that involves every part of the organization from human resources to delivery to management.
