    'Winning On Purpose' with Fred Reichheld, Founder of NPS

    'Winning On Purpose' with Fred Reichheld, Founder of NPS

    We are very excited to have Fred Reichheld, the creator of the Net Promoter system of management and the founder of Bain & Company’s Loyalty practice, as our special guest on The Way Forward podcast series. Fred is known for “putting loyalty economics on the map” and is a trusted expert in customer loyalty. 
    Two thirds of the Fortune 1000 now use Net Promoter Score (NPS), the world’s leading customer success and loyalty framework. Companies that achieve the highest NPS in their industry consistently beat the stock market over the past decade, with annual returns of 26%+, and outperform the vast majority of private equity funds. The very best return across the universe of funds and ETFs tracked by Morningstar barely reached 19% over the decade.
    The issue at hand is that a July 2021 Bain & Co. survey of business executives revealed that only 10% of business leaders believe the primary purpose of their company is to enrich the lives of their customers. 90% of today’s executives dismiss the unbeatable advantages of a customer-centered purpose, which is sine qua non of loyalty leadership.
    In his latest book, Winning on Purpose, Fred Reichheld shows why all businesses should make enriching the lives of customers their primary purpose. It’s the best way to ensure sustainable growth, happily fulfilled employees, and robust investor returns. He unveils Net Promoter 3.0 – updated for our current business and social environment and introduces Bain’s latest invention, Earned Growth, which provides an accounting-based twin for Net Promoter Score.

    'The Next Age of Uncertainty' with Stephen Poloz, former Governor of the Bank of Canada

    'The Next Age of Uncertainty' with Stephen Poloz, former Governor of the Bank of Canada

    We were extremely excited to have Stephen Poloz, the former Governor of the Bank of Canada, kick off our 2022 Eye of the Executive In-Person Series in partnership with Focus Asset Management, on April 6th, 2022. Stephen is a widely recognized economist with nearly 40 years of experience in financial markets, forecasting, and economic policy, including 35 years in the public sector.

    The economic ground is shifting beneath our feet. The world is becoming more volatile, and people are understandably worried about their financial futures. Stephen Poloz maps out the powerful tectonic forces that are shaping our future, and the ideas that will allow us to master them in his new book, The Next Age of Uncertainty: How the World Can Adapt to a Riskier Future. These forces include an aging workforce, mounting debt, and rising income inequality. Technological advances are adding to the pressure, putting people out of work, and climate change is forcing a transition to a lower-carbon economy.
     
    The implications of these tectonic tensions will cascade through every dimension of our lives—the job market, the housing market, the investment climate, as well as government and central bank policy, and the role of the corporation within society. The pandemic has added momentum to many of them. 

    PEO Leadership provides its business community the ability to leverage its collective knowledge, experience and network; to challenge and be challenged in a high disclosure, objective and trusted environment through a combination of Peer Advisory Boards, One-on-One Coaching, and Thought Leadership Executive Networking Events - all for the purpose of enhancing the personal and professional lives of its members.

    'You Have More Influence Than You Think' with Vanessa Bohns

    'You Have More Influence Than You Think' with Vanessa Bohns

    PEO Leadership's Michele Calpin sits down with Vanessa Bohns to discuss why we fail to recognize the influence we have, and how that lack of awareness can lead us to miss opportunities or accidentally misuse our power.

    Vanessa Bohns is social psychologist and professor of organizational behavior at Cornell University. She argues that despite the popular opinion that we need to gain influence in order to get what we want, we actually already have it — we’re just not using it mindfully. If you’ve ever felt ineffective, invisible, or inarticulate, chances are you weren’t actually any of those things. Those feelings may instead have been the result of a lack of awareness we all seem to have for how our words, actions, and even our mere presence affect other people.

    Weaving together compelling stories with cutting edge science and original research, Bohns offers science-based strategies for observing the effect we have on others, reconsidering our fear of rejection, and even, sometimes, pulling back to use our influence less.

    'Humor That Works' with Humor Engineer Andrew Tarvin

    'Humor That Works' with Humor Engineer Andrew Tarvin

    To achieve success and happiness in the workplace, it’s not about changing what you do, but how you do it. People who use humor at work are more productive, less stressed, and happier. In our fall opener of PEO Leadership's The Way Forward Live Webcast series, we hosted a conversation with Andrew Tarvin, humor engineer, leadership expert and author of Humor That Works. The current way of working isn’t actually working. 83% of Americans are stressed out at work, 55% are unsatisfied with their jobs, and 47% struggle to stay happy. Today, 18 months into this pandemic, workers are quitting their jobs in record numbers. What are you and your leadership team doing to retain, inspire and engage your people and attract great talent?

    The purpose of Humor That Works is to provide you with a compact, cohesive resource for understanding the ‘what’, ‘why’, and ‘how’ of using humor at work. The goal is to make you a better leader by implementing specific strategies, you’ll not only get better results, you’ll also have more fun. This is a way of working that is different and effective. Choosing a humor mindset means understanding the various styles of humor and knowing which are appropriate for the workplace.

    In this session, Andrew Tarvin will discuss how to use humor to: 
    Be a better leaderTo think more creativelyTo execute with excellenceTo communicate more effectivelyTo create better connections in your professional and personal life
