Workshop Descriptions

KEYNOTE: HEALTHCARE LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM HOLLYWOOD

Andy Masters

Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters creatively uses the magical imagery of Hollywood to help busy leaders RECRUIT, DEVELOP, and EMPOWER their organizations in a POSITIVE work culture—while reducing turnover and defeating the succession planning crisis. That’s right, ENTERTAIN and INSPIRE your audiences with actual license-protected scenes from movies such as The Devil Wears Prada, Apollo 13, The Iron Lady—and even Office Space and X-Men.  This unique program also cites the latest research from Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, and Glassdoor to provoke REAL organizational change from every attendee. Powerful leadership principles are based on Andy’s latest book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire.” Andy’s program provides attendees with not only an interactive multi-media experience, but also with immediate “take-home” action items to embrace today’s workforce revolution.

RE-IMAGINING YOUR POSITIVE WORK CULTURE FOR THE NEW WORK ENVIRONMENT

Andy Masters

As the world attempts to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis, organizations must now overcome recruiting challenges, staffing shortages, WFH/Remote work arrangements, high turnover, and low morale–while still in the midst of a succession planning crisis.  Further, never before have managers and employees been asked to wear so many hats, and do more with less.  Therefore, the time to create a positive work environment and make the workplace FUN again has never been more important.  People are tired of being stressed. People want to be happy, LAUGH, and enjoy their jobs again–either in the workplace, or remotely.  Employees also want to work within a positive workplace culture, which includes everything from fun, to creative perks & benefits, to family-friendly flex time and remote work options. 

The incredible impacts of a positive work environment include improved recruiting, less stress, higher morale, lower turnover, greater teamwork, creativity, and even increased service levels–accomplished with LITTLE or NO costs!  Join international Author/Speaker Andy Masters in this timely and entertaining program which illustrates inexpensive ways to create a positive working environment, while sharing success stories of how other organizations have RE-ENERGIZED their culture in this “New Normal” global economy.

NAVIGATING THE NEW NORMAL: EMBRACING WORK & LIFE IN THE ERA OF COVID-19

Andy Masters

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, organizations have downsized and are operating extremely trim. Never before have managers and employees been asked to wear so many hats, and “do more with less”–both in the office and remotely–while balancing the anxiety of health, finances, and family.

Join national Author/Speaker Andy Masters for this timely, interactive, and impactful program which truly helps attendees embrace our “New Normal” in both work and life.  

  • Be a light of positivity and solutions during stressful and turbulent times.
  • Decrease anxiety by focusing only on those things which you can control.
  • Embrace change by turning from “stressed and depressed” to “lucky and blessed”. 
  • Become a master of focus, prioritization, and “strategic procrastination“.
  • Develop a new perspective on what is most important in your life, and career. 
  • Engage Andy’s mantra “either you control your schedule, or your schedule controls you.” 

Andy also illustrates the life-changing “YES/NO” principle to inspire audiences to focus the most quality time possible on the activities which are most rewarding for YOU.  Andy’s positive and entertaining program provides specific tools you can apply immediately to recharge, refocus, and happily embrace our “New Normal” in both work and life!

GRATITUDE IN GRITTY TIMES: A CRITICAL TEAM SKILL
