How Approachable Leadership Helps Reduce Turnover and Improve Retention

Work is More Fulfilling and Fun

“The ’60-Day Challenge’ woke me up. In my communications, I found I hadn’t made myself as clear as I thought I had. When I asked the first question, I did get some, ‘Yeah, right!’ type responses.  But, I stayed with it.  Personally, this effort made me feel very good. Now, it’s like, ‘Good Morning Viet Nam!’ when I come in.  I’m more focused and on task.  Work is now more fulfilling.  I’m having fun coming in to work.” Fred, Workshop Attendee

Generational Stereotypes Are BS – Here’s What to Do Instead

Generational Stereotypes Are BS – Here’s What to Do Instead

Generational stereotypes are bad for business.

Seems like our culture has become obsessed with generational stereotypes. New articles come out day after day. And they purport to have uncovered some great new insight into how to deal with the millennials creeping into our offices. Here’s my insight.

Most of it’s bullshit.

People are just people. And we all want the same things. We want to be engaged. And to be challenged. We want to be respected. To be compensated. And to be valued.

Here is what others have to say about recent Approachable Leadership Keynotes and Workshops.

Great Interactive Session, New Techniques

"I recently attended the Approachable Leadership Session with Phil Wilson at the CUE Conference in Denver. It was a great session. I loved the interactive sessions, they really help you learn some new techniques. Phil does a great job involving the participants and keeping everything moving at a great pace. I am so enthralled with this training that I brought Phil to our location to put my troops thru the paces for approachable leadership!"

Masterful Approach Captured Audience

“Phil is masterful in his approach and paints a compelling vision. He has the ability to capture an audience’s attention and take them on a journey through images and anecdotes. Whether you have 1 or 100 supervisors in your organization, I would recommend Phil Wilson’s “Approachable Leadership” session. And learning how to live longer and make more money wasn’t so bad either.” 
W. Alex Koch, Manager of Positive Associate Relations, TJX

Demystifies Leadership, Use Lessons Every Day

“Your workshop  demystified what connecting with another human being – whether an employee, client, or spouse – can be like.  I’ve used his 3-question strategy every day, both in my personal and professional relationships, to become a better coach, sister, and friend.”

Lori Broyles, Business and Entrepreneurial Services Coordinator, Francis Tuttle Technology Center
