Want to Boost Your Bottom Line? Create a Happier Culture
This year’s BSCAI Executive Management Conference (May 11-16) was created to help you reinvigorate your team and step away from the daily grind – something Kris Boesch knows all about.
Boesch is the CEO and Founder of Choose People, a company whose mission is to transform company cultures, increase employee happiness and boost businesses’ bottom-lines. She’s also a keynote speaker at the BSCAI Executive Management Conference. We spoke with her to learn why she’s passionate about workplace culture, what attendees will take away from her session, and why taking time with your team is essential to building a better business.
BSCAI: Why are you passionate about the topic you’re presenting?
Kris Boesch: I’m committed to creating extraordinary workplace cultures because it’s both what’s best for business and it’s what’s best for our communities. There’s a huge financial return on investment as well as an equally important emotional return on investment – both for teams and their leadership. When people feel good about coming to work, they go home as better parents, better spouses and better citizens.
BSCAI: What are three takeaways attendees will get from your session?
- A framework to transform your team’s obstinate fear. Learn this simple framework to garner buy-in for change even when your team looks at you steely eyed with heels dug in and arms crossed.
- The three critical change adoption strategies. When we have a good idea, we want to implement it NOW. And yet, if we try to force an outcome, we’ll have mutiny on our hands. These three change adoption strategies will support you in bringing your team on board such that your idea will be implemented with ease and velocity.
- Seven savvy ways to encourage your team to embrace change. The idea of stepping outside of our comfort zone is often terrifying. However, expanding our comfort zone is a whole different ball-game. These seven ways to encourage your team to embrace change will have your team take ownership and personal responsibility when it comes to supporting and implementing new initiatives.
BSCAI: This conference is a chance for building service contractors (BSCs) to learn and discover new ways to invigorate their teams. Why are these opportunities essential to managing a successful business?
KB: High team morale is mission critical to both productivity and accuracy. (Did you know happy employees make 26 percent fewer mistakes?) You can’t have a successful business in which turnover is incessant and silos, gossip, drama and apathy are prevalent. Morale requires continuous nurturing and attention. In discovering and applying new ways to inspire, motivate and invigorate your team, this conference is a valuable resource for your business’s stability and profitability.
There’s still time to register for the Executive Management Conference! See Boesch and our other speakers in Denver from May 16-18.
