Do you have the right team in place to ensure a successful future for your firm? Creating a great team is not an accident but a deliberate intention executed with discipline. We all know the cost when we hire the wrong people—the time and money invested and lost—but you also lose opportunities, reputation and experience significant gaps in project performance.    

Top performing companies get the people decisions right because they know top talent outperforms their peers at a rate 3-5 times greater than the average performer.  People are the true measure of a great company and make the difference between a successful firm and one struggling with the same issues time and again.

This session contains three parts:  1) The impact of a great work environment on attraction and retention of top talent.  2)  Best practices in hiring and development.  3)  Developing a high performance team.
