Barry-Wehmiller has pioneered a dramatically different approach to leadership that creates off-the-charts morale, loyalty, creativity, and business performance. This interactive keynote leads participants through a series of mini case studies while sharing stories of Barry-Wehmiller’s successes, challenges, and breakthrough moments of clarity.

The lessons of this keynote prove that any organization can reject the traumatic consequences of rolling layoffs, dehumanizing rules, and hyper-competitive cultures. Once organizations stop treating people like functions or costs, disengaged workers begin to share their gifts and talents toward a shared future. Uninspired workers stop feeling that their jobs have no meaning. Frustrated workers stop taking their bad days out on their spouses and kids. And everyone stops counting the minutes until it’s time to go home.

It’s natural to be skeptical when you first hear about this approach. Every time Barry-Wehmiller acquires a company that relied on traditional management practices, the new team members are skeptical too. But they soon learn what it’s like to work at an exceptional workplace where the goal is for everyone to feel trusted and cared for.
