    The Topic

    Employee Happiness: The Key to Engagement, Resilience, and Retention

    Employee engagement is at an all-time low and burnout and employee wellness problems are hitting new highs. Traditional HR solutions are failing to solve the problem. Rob’s transformational talk focuses on the science of human happiness, getting to the heart of what really works to increase engagement, promote wellness, and reduce burnout. Happy employees have better work lives, better home lives, and generate increased profits.

    • Actionable strategies to make the audience members happier starting today

      The Topic

      Dispute Resolution in the Workplace

In this presentation, we’ll explore foundational concepts, obstacles, and approaches to conflict resolution.

      Learning Objectives

      • Review foundational concepts of conflict and conflict resolution
      • Explore obstacles to resolution - why is it so hard?
      • Introduce approaches to resolving conflict at the lowest possible level
      • Provide additional resources for further study
