“I’ve had the pleasure of hosting two talks for my community with Stephen Moulton and have been amazed by the level of preparation he’s done to deliver loads of unique information. I’m so impressed how Steve reveals best practices that save others time that’s usually wasted on trial-and-error. There’s always at least three things I hear from Steve that I’ve never heard anywhere, and I often find myself recalling this info, sharing it with a colleague or using it later in my work.”

Samantha Hartley

“I want to congratulate you enthusiastically on your presentation at our conference. I have been with NAS over sixteen years as a regional manager and sales trainer. In both positions I have realized the extreme importance of the selection process. Over the years I have heard so many generalities of little value that your presentation was especially welcome and satisfying. I will be entering the interviews with more confidence and feel I will make a better selection. Thanks for your great information and insight.”

Millennials, Feedback and Organizational Goals

Reimagine Feedback

Many leaders not only struggle with giving feedback they struggle with getting feedback. Yet, employees really do want feedback, they just don’t react well to the traditional feedback models.

With the influx of Millennials into the workforce how do you grow and keep them to meet your organizational goals? That is your challenge.

Millennials need three things to thrive:

They need to know that what they are doing makes a difference and why,

Plus, they need a boss they can trust, that takes time to talks with them and hear what they have to say.

Finally, they want clear expectations and goals and let them figure out the way to reach it.

In this interactive presentation

We will use the Neuroscience of how people receive feedback, build trust and engagement in a whole new way.

For over 40 years psychologist, trainers, and consultants have been trying to get leaders to give employees feedback and barely moved the needle. Consequently, companies have been pushing supervisors to give more feedback and precious little has changed.

This session will look at why leaders either resist giving feedback or cause more problems than they solve, when giving feedback, and how to change the paradigm, to help employee thrive.

In this paradigm changing interactive presentation you will get up to the minute insight into:

  • Why most feedback as we know it is rejected and what to do about it.
  • The secret key to building trust and engagement and how to build both in minutes a day.
  • How to connect Millennials and organizational goals for long term success.



How Did All These Cazy People Get Hired?

According to the Harvard Business Review 40% of leaders fail in the first 18 months.

Another study suggested that 46% of new hires totally fail in the first 18 months and another 35% are only marginal to fair performers. As a result, Stephen will draw on concepts from his book and speak on five reasons only 19% of new hires are good or outstanding performers and what to do about it.

In this fun and informative presentation you will learn about the three “A’s” to consider when hiring a candidate: Attitude, Alignment, and Aptitude. Without a good match in each, a candidate will be a disappointment or maybe even a costly hiring mistake.
