And why US Businesses Lose $550 Million A Year Because of Unhappy Team Members
How happy is your workplace?
Does your company inspire a happiness culture – a culture where team members feel fulfilled, motivated and aligned?
Or is it like most offices … where uninspired and incompetent management results in toxic gossip, absenteeism, and bullying?
Workplace unhappiness costs U.S. businesses $550 million a year in lost productivity, and entrepreneur Valerie Alexander is on a mission to turn the tide and inspire happy workplace cultures, illuminate unconscious bias, and advance women in business.
A tech CEO, bestselling author, Hollywood screenwriter, and TedX speaker, Valerie is a nationally recognized voice on how to profit from happiness.
Listen today to learn practical tips on management and productivity, plus some brain science on the differences between men and women:
- Why leaders should praise in public and correct in private
- The true cost of retaining a toxic employee
- What goes wrong when people are promoted away from the thing they do best (without management training)
- The scientific difference between male and female brains (and what it means in the workplace)
- And much more
