Welcome to hustle culture: the mindset that being on all the time is not only necessary, but boast-worthy. Can we let you in on a poorly kept secret? This MO of working is completely unsustainable.
Burnout rates have never been higher, employees are exhausted and disengaged, and leaders are wringing their hands and asking, “What can we do?”

For most of our clients, Gen Z feels like a riddle wrapped in a mystery folded inside an enigma. “Who even are they? And what do they want from work?”
This presentation answers these questions, and sheds light on the latest generation to take their place in the American workplace. While Gen Z is often lumped in with Millennials, they’re a distinct cohort with their own set of values, communication preferences, and expectations around what they want work to look/feel like. Leaning on our decade of work on generational research, we decode the best ways to engage and motivate Gen Z.
— Understanding cultural trends to help you better recruit Gen Z employees and retain the youngest generation at work
— Learn how Gen Z and Millennials should be managed differently
— A look at the “why” behind the “what” of Gen Z behavior and motivation
We are entering a new era of work, one where businesses win when leaders are compassionate, communication is empathetic, and people are prioritized. But that transformation, much like any kind of change, requires a great degree of intention and care.
By embracing the workplace lessons learned during the pandemic years there’s an opportunity to design the kind of organization we all want to work in, and a culture we can all be a part of.
In this presentation, you’ll learn how to create a healthier, happier, and ultimately more successful company culture by putting people first. Steeped in years of research and listening (really listening) to employees at all levels, it will paint the picture of what the future of work can and should look like, and how you can get started with that redesign right away.
— An exploration of the three cornerstones of compassionate leadership
— Strategies to take organizational communication from autopilot to intentional and empathetic
— Tactical tools to start transforming your work culture
SHE REALLY TOOK THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND OUR CULTURAL AND PRODUCTIVITY CHALLENGES.
She interviewed several members of our team – with different levels of experience and backgrounds – and asked the right questions and listened well to elicit common themes. I would highly recommend Lisa!”
