Bestselling Author, Keynote Speaker and Executive Coach

Christopher D. Connors will share his point of view on the culture of connection. Organizations are losing top performers left and right to their competitors. Employees feel burned out and, in some cases, misunderstood. Research and conversations show people want greater connection to their leaders and organizations. How can you inspire your employees to achieve this?

This culture of connection is created by leadership that both informs, inspires and helps people to achieve their goals and reach their potential. This drives sales, boosts performance and helps to retain and engage your employees. In this session, you'll explore the actionable strategies that you can start applying at your credit union.
