Every organisation carries an enormous hidden debt called onboarding debt and it represents the difference between what people should understand and what they actually understand about the cultural expectations, technical expectations, and managers’ expectations that define how to succeed in their role. This onboarding debt manifests itself through lost profits, low retention, poor cultures and frustrated leaders. But it doesn’t need to be this way. 

In this practical, interactive and engaging keynote, topics covered include:

  • The structural reasons that lead most companies to inadequate onboarding
  • How most companies complete onboarding just before the real impact begins
  • Why onboarding debt is the real cause of cultural issues in many firms
  • How to calculate the cost of inadequate onboarding to your firm
  • How to improve productivity, retention, profitability and culture using onboarding
  • The two main tools to use for effective onboarding

Mastering five essential roles can help managers and leaders increase the focus, clarity and perspective they need to have more impact in the work they do.

In this practical, interactive and engaging keynote, participants:

  • Understand the vicious issue that keeps them busy, overwhelmed and exhausted.
  • Learn the five results that great leaders produce, which always elude good leaders (and what to do about it!).
  • Get to know the five roles of a leader, and how they rate on each of the five roles.
  • And, of course, a list of priorities, tools and actions – personalised to their situation – so they can focus on the work that matters.

In order to scale your organisation you must have the right leadership, scalable infrastructure and the ability to overcome market dynamics. The basic framework to achieve this is accessible by all leaders.

In this hands on workshop, participants:

  • Gain a practical understanding of the barriers to growth preventing them from scaling their organisation.
  • Test their core values, discover their core customers and reveal strategic opportunities.
  • Identify the right people who can scale the business, and the wrong people, as well as what to do about them!

What is it that enables some companies to grow whilst others languish?  Brad covers real world examples and tools to help you develop a strategy to differentiate you from the competition, a plan to execute your strategy and meaningful tools to help build a world class team.

The first and most important aspect to building a successful business is finding and retaining the right people and getting them doing the right job the right way. This is the A-Z of attracting, inspiring, recruiting and retaining a team to help you build a business capable of its potential.  Second, a business must have an effective strategy to organically drive revenues to it from the competition. Third, a team must execute effectively or fail to see profit emerge on the bottom line and finally have systems and processes to optimise cash within the business. Learn how to use these in your business at this high energy, fast paced keynote speech for Australian business.
