How to hire AND retain fantastic employees!

And interns too!


Being an effective boss or project leader is not easy. I share my successful strategy for every stage of the hiring process and prove how it will save you hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars if done correctly. My successful strategy for retaining great teams hinges on creating a collaborative environment. I teach how and why to set very clear expectations from the beginning of the hiring process, not after the hiring has been done. Real world strategies, anecdotes and simple scripts encourage and empower attendees how to manage colleagues and bosses who are difficult to work with and how to collaborate with different personalities.

In this workshop you will walk away with tools, strategies and insights about:

  • how to hire and retain great interns and employees the FIRST time

  • how and when to set clear expectations with full time or part time employees

  • how to collaborate successfully with employees, interns, teams

  • how to make every hire pay for itself- in hours, in wages, commissions, energy- the first time

  • how to create a collaboration that makes people WANT to work for and with you forever

As in all of my workshops, Keynote Presentations and Breakout Sessions—I welcome spontaneous questions. This creates an environment of trust from the audience. I have a proven system for helping people who want to remain anonymous to submit questions confidentially, allowing really tough questions to be asked (I love the challenge of answering on the spot!) Audience members talk to me as if I am their trusted confidante. In all of my presentations and workshops I get asked very serious professional as well as emotional questions, which indicates that we are discussing exactly what the audience needed to discuss. It shows effective leadership within the organization to provide these workshops that support and empower your employees.
