Sharon Jordan-Evans


Smart organizations know it. In today's business world, talent is everything.

A highly-engaged workforce can take an organization to impressive and profitable heights. An indifferent workforce can ruin it. Many organizations want to make their environments better places to work. The problem is that they don't know how to go about it. They may not know where to start. Or, they focus on the wrong things, such as compensation and perks.

Sharon Jordan-Evans has a different approach: one backed up by research and decades of high-performance coaching. Sharon believes that the place to start is with the organization's managers. The managers-as-leaders have the clout and the responsibility in the race for talent.

What's more, Sharon has identified 26 strategies that they can use to help them win the race. In this session, Sharon will outline many of these strategies, and will provide hands-on tips that can be put into practice immediately.

By attending this session you will:
  • Understand the cost of talent loss in the 21st century
  • Establish a new mindset about the leader's role in the retention dilemma
  • Appreciate the significance of retention factors other than pay
  • Hear about several engagement and retention strategies that will work for any leader, anywhere
  • Leave with concrete "to-dos" and a renewed energy and optimism about the role that leaders at all levels can play in the race for talent
