039: Four Strategies to Meet Business Challenges in the Future and Deliver Maximum Impact on Results

Do you want to make an impact? Are you hoping to influence change? Well, today I am speaking about how you can make the most impact at work. You'll hear numerous stories from my career in HR, learn four key points to help you meet business challenges in the future, and also obtain some takeaways you can apply to your career immediately. While the stories in this episode are HR related, the advice can be applied to any leader who wants to make a difference. 

In addition to learning how to meet business challenges and deliver maximum impact, you’ll also hear what makes an effective keynote. Today’s episode features audio from my 2016 mega-session, The Future of Work, which I shared at the SHRM Annual Conference. This particular session has received countless positive testimonials, has something for audience members at all levels of an organization, and has been a major source of income for me too. There is a lot to glean from this episode. Listen, learn, and enjoy!
