In the trenches of a well-paid CPA firm, learning first-hand the hard cost of disengagement and how Millennials worked, Josh Schneider knew something had to change – so he did something about it. What he did was form a coaching company and work with organizations and individuals to increase performance, energy, and happiness.

  • Culture: The Competitive Advantage

    As organizations become increasingly team-centric, the workforce becomes both younger and older, technology catalyzes faster change, and business challenges grow more global and diverse, fresh challenges in leadership development and shaping culture are emerging.

    What we know is that leadership behavior and culture directly impact organizational performance, customer service, employee engagement, and retention. It's not only about equipping and leading but understanding how to use data and behavioral information to manage and influence culture.

    Culture is the competitive advantage in the new business economy.

    Culture can determine success or failure in times of change: mergers, growth, new product lines and offerings can either succeed or fail depending on the health and alignment of the organizations culture.

    Creating an outstanding culture where people lead, innovate and show up fully engaged provides a long-term competitive advantage by turning challenges and difficulties into strengths while they are still opportunities.

    Here are some outcomes Josh has delivered to help professionals and leaders:
    • Uncover the connection culture has to performance
    • Deploy the "levers of cultural change"
    • Create high-impact employee experience moments
    • Leverage "supply depots" for ensuring long term cultural impact
    • Identify barriers of creative, effective culture
    • Developing "Please and Thank You" moments
  • Developing the Next Gen Leader (Millennials) The Problems:

    1. Intense competition for Millennial talent who are less loyal than prior generations.

    2. Leadership pipelines that are lagging behind current needs (Deloitte)

    Today, organizations need to explore new approaches to leadership development. The workforce is becoming both younger and older as Millennials continue to enter as other retire. This shift is creating fresh challenges in leadership development leaving massive gaps in the development pipeline. How leaders adapt to this disruptive change in the workforce will determine tomorrow's success. Leaders must innovate their approach to the millennial experience and development path to keep the pipeline healthy and moving.

    To win the war on talent leaders must not only acquire and keep their emerging leaders but rapidly develop them. What are the qualities of top talent? How do you best adapt to engage and invest in this talent? When you can get it right not only will they stay but they will become the competitive advantage in this new, every changing and complex business economy.

    Any company's growth potential is directly related to it's people potential.

    Both practical and inspirational, this program "Developing The Next Gen Leader" is jammed with strategies for leaders who want to effectively develop and cultivate their next generation of leaders. Those who choose to do so will create their own advantage and outperform the market by fostering a high performance culture for
    sustainable leadership growth.

    Here are some outcomes Josh has delivered to help leaders:
    • Understand the climate required to develop, nature and equip potential leaders
    • Foster a high performance culture for sustaining leadership growth
    • Lift the lid on the career of those around you
    • Build a dream team of leaders for a strong future
    • Deploy a process for turning producers into reproducers
