The 5 Keys to Building Teamwork and Trust

Do you trust your team members to get things done and to make wise decisions for your organization? Trust is the cornerstone of your team’s success and it takes time to build it up. Without that trust, you won’t be able to create a work environment that fosters autonomy, responsibility, honesty, and respect. In this speaking engagement, Courtney will add humor and practical experience to common HR scenarios to bring you the quality information you need to cultivate trust and teamwork in your organization.

Improve Customer Satisfaction Through Your Staff’s Exceptional Performance

Customers know what they want. And you want your customers to enjoy your company so much that they will tell their friends about your business! Your staff is the key to that concept. How your staff treats customers can make or break the customer experience. Sometimes the smallest staff interaction will make the difference between a delighted customer and one who never returns to your business. This seminar will provide you with easy-to-use tools to improve your staff’s performance and, in turn, your customers’ experiences.

The Employee Life Cycle:

Is it time to hire a new employee? What paperwork should you complete? How do you train a new hire? And what happens if you have to fire that new employee? This seminar will provide you with a supportive framework to improve hiring, firing and managing employees in your organization. With Courtney’s guidance, you will learn how to successfully navigate all the steps in the employee life cycle:

  1. What to do before you hire a candidate
  2. How to orient employees to your company
  3. How to effectively set expectations and manage employee behaviors
  4. How to best discipline and terminate employees safely and professionally

The 5 Steps to Employee Performance Success

Performance Improvement Plans (PIP) don’t work. By the time you sit down to write the plan, oftentimes the employee performance is so bad that you wish they just would quit. This common reality led Courtney to rethink how companies handle performance management. In this presentation, Courtney will dive into her proven five-step formula that’s designed to eliminate the need for a reactive and time-consuming PIP process, and teach you how to effectively replace it with a more proactive process that will get employees on the right track right from the start.

Secrets to Hiring and Retaining Top Performers

How do you hire your next rock star employee? And once they’re on the team, how do you effectively train them so they’re engaged and empowered? Furthermore, how can you quickly identify employees who are not meeting expectations? And how can you positively impact employee performance through disciplinary actions? This session will provide you with a framework for hiring, firing, and managing top performers in your organization.
