Talent MAGNET: Attracting, developing, and retaining high value employees


This course provides managers with unique insights and tools to more effectively find, attract, develop, and retain high value employees. In the face of the Great Resignation and the difficulty of finding and keeping valuable contributors, this program will provide leaders with the strategies they need to maintain stable high performing teams.  

Join us as we follow and listen in on conversations between Tim and his team at Alliance Resources as they  experience challenges and triumphs in attracting, developing and retaining a diverse and talented team.

Included are interviews from industry experts and respected thought-leadership authors on their insights into these challenging topics.

Unlike other more academic programs, this course focuses on practical and easy to use approaches that work with all employees in any industry. Also included are points about how to apply these principles personally for a happier and more fulfilling life and relationships.
