Do your leaders and managers conduct story time during presentations?
This is a great presentation for professionals who find themselves reading every word, from every slide, during every presentation.
Steve will cover:
Does your organization hire employees based on assumptions?
Are your leaders not taking the time to get to know their employees? Are they frustrated about their hiring selections? Are they hiring based upon assumptions?
It may be the cultural differences from their last organization to their current. It may be personality clashes with the new management. Regardless, did you hire them assuming they were going to know and understand the basics of what your organization considers as common sense?
Common sense is not common.
Steve dives into:
Do you understand the need for education and how to use your education?
We often make the mistake of telling everyone that they need a college degree. What we fail to say is that everyone needs “an education.”
As the numbers continue to increase of students who graduate from universities and colleges with degrees they do not use, the amount of debt continues to rise.
In business, we are also alienating highly potential leaders because they do not have a degree but may have the experience.
Where do we go from here with a failing educational system that is affecting the future entrepreneurs, blue- and white-collar workers, and simply our next generation?
Steve will discuss why we need leaders to look beyond the name of degrees on a resume and look for skill sets. Even if that means reshaping our training and development programs within our organizations.
From the perspective of a person with multiple degrees, a professor, and entrepreneur. While Steve promotes education, he will discuss the disconnects between academia and the business world.
