    EVENT DETAILS:

    Please Lie to Me takes on fear in the workplace by establishing a new agreement to replace business as usual.  Based on the book of the same name, Russ Salzer and Melissa Borowicz will explore implementing Accountable Communication to transform culture and business.  Please Lie to Me challenges business owners and leaders to take back control of their cultures and organizations.  In doing so, employees become fully engaged and the organization will reach previously unattainable heights of effectiveness and productivity.

    Please Lie to Me is a reference to the lies we accept from those we work with in order to maintain the status quo and avoid honest feedback, which we may not like.  Unfortunately, this is also what keeps us from achieving higher levels of personal success and, ultimately, improved business results.  The work of Russ Salzer is highlighted in the book, Please Lie to Me, by Thompson Barton and Don White.  

    Accolades for the presentation:

    • “I left the Please Lie to Me workshop feeling empowered to be the change I want to see in my workplace. “
    • “I’ve never taken the time to pinpoint my signs of defensiveness and their root fears.  Leaving the Please Lie to Me workshop, I’m compelled to wash those fears away and practice accountable openness!”
    • “It was both refreshing and eye opening to be in a room full of local leaders from various companies who ALL see the same fears in the workplace!”
    • “The Please Lie to Me workshop taught me the steps I can take to create an environment of trust in the workplace.”

    Melissa Borowicz is CEO/Owner of the Utech Group. With over fifteen years of experience working with organizations across the US and Canada, Melissa is an expert in defining corporate culture and helping organizations maximize and align their teams and people.  She is equipped with an arsenal of skills that enable her to effectively and efficiently identify and customize solutions to meet each company's unique needs.

    Russell Salzer, owner of 3YG, is an accomplished business leader with over 25 years of expertise in building marketing, sales and operational teams, revitalizing infrastructure, developing and executing strategic plans, and driving businesses to greater levels of profitability by developing effective teams by dramatically improving individual personal development and the interpersonal relationships that people share with each other.

    Human beings resort to fight/flight in the face of conflict.  This conflict is rooted in our perception of whether or not something is a threat to our "safety."  This applies not only to external sources (animals, people, etc.), it also applies to our perception of leadership, and catch phrases like 'Diversity & Inclusion.'  This full participatory presentation will introduce techniques that allow us to more quickly and safely identify, understand, and respond to Diversity/Equity terms and concepts that move us and our organizations forward.  

    During a networking break, tables of local employers featuring their employee resource groups will be available to ask questions.

    During the second half of the presentation, Arletta will walk us through how to create a business case to effectively convince your C-Suite to embrace diversity and inclusion and begin initiatives that ultimately impact your company's ability to recruit, retain, and make a difference to the bottom line.

    What is Leadercast Live?

    Leadercast Live is the largest one-day leadership event in the world. Broadcast live each year from Atlanta to hundreds of Host Sites around the world, Leadercast Live assembles globally respected leadership experts on one stage to share knowledge and insights from their leadership journeys.

    The theme of Leadercast 2020 is: Positive Disruptions

    Disturbance. Disorder. Disarrangement. Many people think these are negatives in the workplace. But Leadercast Live 2020 will explain why disruption is the best way to make positive, lasting change in your company.

    The speakers who will take the stage are change-makers. They are trailblazers. They are people who face big ideas head on and take their teams to new heights. Learn from our leadership experts on how to purposefully interrupt organizational functions to bring new energy, ideas, processes and success to your team.

    At Leadercast Live 2020, you will discover how you can upset the normal workflow to bring positive change in your organization.

    Overview

    We have two main issues to face as we move into 2020.  The first one is how to keep and maintain civility through constructive conflict.  There seems to be more and more workplace conflict where people are taking extreme positions and more importantly, they're digging in and are unwilling to compromise.  I believe this directly has come out of the political climate that has occurred over the last two years.  I also believe we will continue to face issues with staffing, therefore, I believe it will be important to focus on productivity and motivational management.  Being able to focus our energy on motivating our top performers to continue to perform at an outstanding level and not leave for a better option, will be vitally important.

    SPEAKER INFORMATION

    Stephanie Bellin has 26 years of Human Resource experience working with various industries including health care, manufacturing, retail, education, construction and banking.

    Overview

    For the first time since WW II, the current lack of available workforce in the US is the single greatest threat to the growth and expansion for American businesses. It is a mathematical certainty that there will not be enough available talent to fill all of the needs of employers over the next decade. There will be winners and losers in this "War for Talent." This talk will focus on proven systematic strategies that companies can use to make sure they are well staffed with amazing people that will allow their organization to grow and thrive
