Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

May 20, 2015  

In this presentation, Joe will share new research and give actionable steps you can take as a leader to keep the employees in your organization engaged and satisfied with their jobs – none of which involve money.

Years ago when employees became dissatisfied with their organization they would quit and get another job. Today, with placement opportunities low and unemployment high, very few people opt to quit and leave. Something much worse is happening —employees “quit,” but they stay.

In the last year, overall job satisfaction in the U.S. has declined significantly. Employees feel stuck in their current jobs and their dissatisfaction with the organizations they work for has increased.

However, not all organizations are experiencing these dismal results. A recent assessment of employee engagement by one of our clients showed a significant improvement over past years, though this company was not immune to the effects of the recession. Examination of the data showed 7 factors that created this positive increase in their satisfaction and commitment, even during the economy’s poorest times.

Please join us to learn 7 ways to increase employee engagement without giving a raise!

In this episode, Jack and Joe interview Jason Garner. Jason is formerly the CEO of Global Music at Live Nation and was once named one of the top 20 highest paid CEOs under age 40 by Fortune Magazine.

Despite tremendous success in the business world, the death of his mother caused Jason to reevaluate his priorities and give up his fast paced executive life in order to find balance. With his new career path, he focuses his body, mind and spirit by practicing yoga and mediating daily. He recently wrote about his journey in the book “And I Breathed: My Journey from a life of matter to a life that matters.”

During the podcast, Jason discusses:

  • Having the courage to re-invent yourself
  • Getting started on the things you are passionate about
  • Building confident and avoiding fear
  • Prioritizing what's important in life and balancing it with your career
