8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The Westin O'Hare
In this era of overwork, with client demands, shrinking margins and changing technology, businesses have increasingly focused on individual performance and 24/7 availability.
Focus on individual productivity is not sustainable long term. It’s time to reinvest in the power of team. This session will show you how encouraging conversation around six aspects of “team life” with your team will improve client service and help you retain your best talent. With a special emphasis on improving the flexibility, collaboration, resilience and communication practices of your team, you’ll walk away with a roadmap for delivering value to clients while meeting employee needs.
This session will help you:
- Improve communication and connection in dispersed teams
- Enhance individual and organizational resilience
- Reduce stress, overwork and disengagement
- Increase internal mobility across departments and office locations
