Leadership Lessons from Hollywood
Presented by: Andy Masters

This session will creatively use the magical imagery of Hollywood to help leaders ignite a culture to develop and empower their dealerships—while defeating the succession planning crisis—in this challenging era of having to “do more with less.” Citing the latest research from Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, and Glassdoor, this session provokes real organizational change from every attendee, and provides immediate “take-home” action items to help cultivate both millennials and Gen Z future leaders in today’s new economy.

Succession Planning That Works
Presented by: Deni Hoehne

Too many succession plans gather dust on shelves while top talent leaves the organization and outside people get chosen for top posts. In this session, you’ll learn how to design an effective process for selecting and developing qualified successors from the top talent within your dealership. This session is based on real world experience applying the recommendations of Marc Effron, President of the Talent Strategy Group and author of “One Page Talent Management.” One iteration of the process at a heavy equipment dealer was recognized as one of the top three best practices at the manufacturer’s 2018 global talent management conference.

Content includes:

  • Why organizational strategy has to come first
  • How to evaluate possible successors
  • Professional development and training
  • Designing experiences that truly prepare a successor

Humor in the Workplace: Not Just How, but Why!
Presented by: Andy Masters

Since the recession, companies have been downsized and running trim. This includes dealerships. Never before have managers and employees been asked to wear so many hats, and do more with less. Therefore, the time to make the workplace FUN again has never been more important! People are tired of being stressed. People want to be happy, laugh, and enjoy their jobs. The incredible impacts of a fun and positive work environment include less stress, higher morale, lower turnover, and even increased service levels—and it can be accomplished with LITTLE or NO costs!

This session will illustrate easy and inexpensive ways to create a fun working environment, while sharing success stories of how companies have launched a RE-ENERGIZED corporate culture in this new global economy.

Hippies to Hipsters: Communicating Across Generations
Presented by: Jesyca Hope

One of the biggest issues facing the equipment industry is the issue of multi-generational communication and continuity. Face it—from Baby Boomers to Generation Z, we use different communication tools, platforms, and methods, and the best managers need to know how to fine-tune their communications approach to get the best results out of all generations. In this session, learn how different generations can bridge the communication gulf, get on the same page, and work as a harmonious team.

Topics include:

  • Choosing your channel
  • Why “communicating with millennials” is obsolete
  • How to speak a common language
  • How to build effective multi-generational teams

Roundtable Collaboration
Moderated by: Jesyca Hope
