10 Success Strategies for Dealing With Worker Overwhelm

Today’s workforce is suffering from information overload and an expectation of 24/7 availability. Half of US workers report being overwhelmed with too much to do. This crisis is undermining productivity, lowering employee engagement, and leading to higher absenteeism and worker dissatisfaction. How do you do your best, generate results, and have a life under these conditions?  There is a way … but “just working harder” isn’t the answer.  In this highly interactive Overwhelm Busters® presentation, participants learn how to:

  • Recognize the “Overwhelmed Mode” so you’re in control of it instead of it controlling you
  • Conquer overwhelm to increase worker morale, positivity and engagement
  • Work with the latest brain science to be able to get as much work done as you would like
  • Boost productivity and satisfaction at work
  • Take action now to convert overwhelm to efficiency with less stress

 Lost in Translation:  Generational Performance Expectations and Getting Everyone on the Same Page

“They don’t want to work!”  It’s an all too familiar refrain uttered about associates of the millennial generation (those born roughly between 1980 and 2000), who have a “work isn’t everything” mentality. Other generations expect professionals to do whatever it takes, even at the sacrifice of their personal life. There is a link between how people feel at work and how long they stay. When confusion reigns about what’s expected and how work needs to get done, it causes angst.  Angst breeds dissatisfaction, and resentment, and high turnover soon follows.  Millennials are used to getting what they want, when they want it.  If they aren’t able to work and have a personal life they won’t stick around for long. Learn how to:

  • Keep your Millennial employees more engaged and successful at doing what you’re paying them to do
  • Save money on training and development while giving Millennials what they’re looking for
  • Protect your investment in them by keeping them motivated and wanting to stay
