It’s a jungle out there! Many workers may get specific training for their job, but few have the opportunity to learn the skills and strategies that will help them hold onto that job and speed the next promotion. This can be a problem with younger workers in particular, who may have unreasonanable expectations when they are starting out in their working careers. On the other hand, older workers may have become set in their ways, content to “put in their time” and not make an effort to contribute to your company’s success.

This lively and dynamic presentation is packed with practical information that your employees of all ages can put to work right away to avoid the pitfalls and dangers of real-world employment. As a result, they can become more productive, and will help make your company a more positive place to work.

Your employees will learn:

  • Three essential skills that will gain the support of co-workers at all levels
  • One surprising lesson from fast food that applies in any job
  • What their primary responsibility really is, no matter what their job description says

Why would you get career advice from a man who has not had a paycheck in 30 years?

Alfred Poor, PhD received his last paycheck in 1982. Since then, he has built a successful career as a freelance writer, speaker, and trainer. He has survived in a world without guaranteed stability, where each assignment for a client could be the last. To survive, he had to learn how to find his way through tangled bureaucracies and to forge lasting bonds with decision-makers at all levels.

With humor and energy, Alfred Poor is a skilled teacher who can convey old-school concepts of initiative and responsibility to today’s workers at all levels — and of all ages — in a way that they can take to heart and put into practice.
