How Approachable Leadership Helps Reduce Turnover and Improve Retention

Reduced Turnover and Tension

“I’ve noticed a big difference at our facility.  It’s a very positive feel & feedback from my people.  Instead of, ‘I’ll get to it’ attitude, they now go with their people. .. listen & act.  There was a tension here that’s been reduced.  And, our turnover is now less.” Dennis, Plant Manager

 

Improved my Professional and Personal Relationships

“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, Business and Entrepreneurial Services Coordinator

 

Stop-Listen-Confirm Helped Me Connect Better with Staff

“I have a problem “multi-tasking”:  keeping on the computer when people stop by my office to ask a question or talk.  I was listening… but… not really listening.  And, I had a habit of working on my answer to their question before they were finished with their comments.  I’m now adopting the “SLC” principle.” Ray, Training Attendee

 

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

 

I’m Enjoying Coming to Work Again

“I’m using and asking the “3 Questions”.  I’m working on reducing the ‘PITA’s’.  I love giving positive feedback. I’m enjoying coming in again.” Orly, Workshop Attendee

Great Interactive Session, 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
