Eileen McDargh, an organizational resiliency expert, building resilient leadership teams and workplaces. “Eileen’s ability to connect with mind, heart, spirit, and funny; relevant and provocative…and very, very real.”
Your challenges; reward; successes, and encouragement to be resilient?
How your group will benefit from her 3-step approach:
1. Hold a conversation — I talk WITH your folks, rather than at them. And I don’t shy away from the tough topics on everyone’s minds.
2. Reframe their perspective — It helps to know that work/life issues and adjusting to change are universal challenges. Accepting change with resilience is rewarding … no matter who you are.
3. Help them be ready to take action — Each of us has choices and personal accountability.
McDargh inspires and encourages all individuals to take action, live their lives, and find meaning in their work.
Create a competitive edge in engaging and retaining talented employees and customers on the most human of playing fields: conversation.
Without that connection, there is no energy of engagement.
Discover the secret of viewing points in creating teams and fostering loyalty.
Relighting and Retaining Good People
The competitive edge is never a product or service. It’s the brainpower that makes it, the hands that hold it, and the hearts that deliver it.
Innovation, productivity, service and bottom-line profits are the result of people: solid, talented, engaged and committed employees.
Even as some sectors of the economy slow down, the reality is that losing valuable, industry-trained people has long-term implications, particularly if your star performers go to the competition!
You’ll learn that star performers aren’t always looking for more money, but rather career growth, learning and development, exciting work, meaningful work, making a difference, and the chance to make a contribution on a team.

Connecting The Human Web: Plain Talk for Complex Times
Our very success hinges on relationships. These relationships grow or die based on a skill too often we forget:
CONVERSATION. How meaningful are yours?
The proliferation of cell phones and the glut of chat rooms show us what society yearns for: meaningful human connection, community, and the value of relationships. The pace of change, the lure of dazzling technology, and the speed of life have created the opposite. The most human of all connections is conversation – an internal and external event that has become blurred. We’ve forgotten how to talk to each other – if in fact some of us ever knew. In many instances, we have never been taught how to listen. And at times of crisis, these conversations become even more important.
Explores a model for understanding and growing the conversations we have with ourselves and with each other so that everyone becomes fully
engaged in the work we are tasked to do.
