BACK TO SCHEDULE

How to keep your talent close, from afar: have you got the Appreciation Factor?

In this session...

We're living & working differently. Patti McConnell, co-founder & managing partner of Something Different sees this as our ‘reset’ time to bring back what’s been lacking in our industry for too long; recognizing individuals. Not just for the job well done, but to simply be engaged, compassionate humans. Knowing they wouldn’t have the opportunity to say kudos to the team(s) who nailed the ideas in person, SD quickly realized the importance of expressing appreciation and communicating differently.

As we’re continuing to adjust working in new ways, how do we keep talent motivated and interested? More importantly, how do we bring back what’s been lacking in our industry for too long; recognizing individuals. Not just for the job well done, but to simply be engaged, compassionate humans. Patti McConnell, co-founder & managing partner of Something Different suggests, as we’re living & working differently, this is the perfect time to ‘reset’. Since launching in 2016, Patti and her core team of just 11 have worked with a mix of talent spread far and wide. Knowing they wouldn’t have the opportunity to say kudos to the team(s) who nailed the idea in person, SD quickly realized the importance of expressing appreciation and communicating differently. In this session, Patti will speak to practical ways to provide feedback and encouragement that will translate to talent feeling appreciated, and in turn inspired. It’s time we all found the Appreciation Factor. View Less
