6-Hour Virtual Seminar on Leaders: Make Your Employees Your Competitive Advantage

Date(s) - 10/09/2020
8:00 am - 2:00 pm


Employees have the power to be your competitive advantage in the marketplace. The Discretionary Effort Leadership Model is a comprehensive culture change model that shows you how to make employees your competitive advantage. It provides professional development for every manager and improves the sensitive conversations or touch points between a manger and an employee.

Discretionary Effort is the difference between the level of effort, creativity, and problem solving one is capable of bringing to a task, versus the minimum effort required to just get by or make do, and still receive a paycheck. Employees who do just enough work to get a paycheck and not get fired will never become your competitive advantage with customers and clients.

Each day, when an employee walks in the office door (or logs in remotely) and starts work, that employee makes a choice whether or not to give discretionary effort. It takes a special kind of leader to earn the gift of discretionary effort.
