Kevin Sheridan, an internationally recognized keynote speaker, New York Times best-selling author, and one of the most sought-after voices in the world on the topic of employee engagement, took the floor at this month’s client networking lunch to share what he’s learned about how to attract and retain top talent.
“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” —Bill Gates
It is easy for business leaders to feel that their most important responsibility is to acquire new customers, lower costs, increase revenue, or build new products and services. What can be more difficult to accept is that to succeed in those tasks a leader must answer a single, more important question: How do employers build a staff that is capable and empowered to take an organization to its next level?
Drawing on years of research, real-world examples, and the key points from his first book, Building a Magnetic Culture, Sheridan led a discussion and shared strategies and tactics for addressing the dual issues of attracting and retaining the best employees in your industry. By addressing hot topics such as shared ownership, diversity and inclusion, and the importance of “fun” at work, Sheridan provided attendees with actionable takeaways and new ways of thinking.
Shields Meneley Partners would like to thank Kevin Sheridan, our clients, and our staff for making the luncheon a success.
Building a Magnetic Culture made six of the bestseller lists including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. In addition to various speaking engagements around the world, Sheridan helps brands and high-profile executives develop leadership skills, reach their full potential, and increase productivity through his consultancy firm, Kevin Sheridan LLC.
