Accelerate Engagement and Put the Brakes on Turnover

10:05am-11:15am CDT

Science has revealed more about the brain in the last five years than in the previous thousand. The implications for organizational health and prosperity, as well as employee retention and wellness, are nothing short of astounding. Much of what has been assumed and thought to be true about effective management techniques and human relations in business turns out to be not simply ineffective, but dangerous.

Don Rheem, will apply practical insights to increasing employee engagement based on an "empirically validated theory of human behavior confirmed through breakthroughs in social neuroscience." If that sounds intense, it is! But Don covers this topic in an easy to understand way. Don will teach you how to distinguish employee engagement from employee satisfaction and how to apply that knowledge in your shop to improve staff performance and decrease turnover. Get ready to be engaged!

3 Goals and 90 Minutes to Excellence

10:30am-12:00pm CDT

In this highly interactive session, it's time for you and your fellow participants to come up with great ideas to take your businesses to greater success. In three rounds of 20 minutes each, you will answer three of the most important questions any business has to answer: How can you dominate your competition (and let the market know about it)? How can you attract the best talent in your area before others do? How can you create a high-performing culture? During this session, you'll learn some best practices, have some time to reflect, and then share your ideas and hear great ideas from others. Let's see who can come up with the best ideas, and then commit to action to make them happen after SuperConference!

In his wildly popular presentation, Mike shows why the formula entrepreneurs use to calculate profit actually inhibits it. He then shares a new approach to profit – taking it first – that instantly changes everything. With this simple yet profound change, any business, will become instantly and permanently profitable.
