Are budgets still tight for you? Are you struggling to still do more with less?
In many ways, I think we all are. Organizations have settled into the patterns and expectations set after reductions and belt-tightening from the 2009 recession. We asked remaining employees (including ourselves) to do more, sometimes doing the work of two or three people, and we are still doing so today.
Leadership is quite happy with these productivity increases and likely sees them as sustainable over the long term. Those of us in HR closely tied to how employees are doing in terms of engagement know better.
If you’re in the position of trying to still do more with less, then I encourage you to join me and 40 other experts for a LeadershipLivecast from The Ken Blanchard Companies on Wednesday, 24th April, 12:00-2:30 Eastern (9:00-11:30 Pacific; 5:00-7:30 GMT). What’s this all about?
“Many of us in the workplace are stressed, overworked, and overextended. Yet our organizations seem to be asking still more of us. How do we learn to do more with less? And then still more with less again?
“Join us on April 24, 2013, as we explore ways to drive and maintain high performance without burnout. Learn from experienced managers, senior coaches, and leadership experts on how to avoid the deal-breaking moment when your top talent declares, “No more doing more with less.”
“Register Now to hear some of leaderships best known thought leaders share their insight on how they have managed to accomplish more with less. Featuring: Elliott Masie, Steve Roesler, Charlene Li, James Maas, Lee Cockerell, Fons Trompenaars and many more. Plus live commentary from Ken Blanchard and Scott Blanchard!”
I’ll be sharing specifically on how to do more with less recognition and rewards budget. I hope you can join the livecast.
