It seems that no matter who I talk to, the topic of millennials comes up, typically when it comes to people talking about how they are driving the needs of wellness offerings, or how they want flexibility or how they are entitled. One thing I think millennials will demand is a different leadership than what today’s guest calls a “command and control” approach. 

Today’s guest is Lee Caraher, CEO of Double Forte PR & Digital Marketing. Her company works with some of the top consumer and technology brands in the country. Lee’s an acclaimed communication strategist, known for her practical solutions to big problems.

Lee is the author of Millennials & Management based on her experience with failing and then succeeding at retaining Millennials. She has a reputation for building cohesive, high producing teams who have fun together at the same time.

In today’s interview, we discuss how creating a happy and low drama team is an art form, she’s honest about her management missteps and she tells a great story about when she got 360 feedback that made her realize she had some leadership gaps and what she did to change it.

Lee has a very contrary view to turnover which I loved. She leaves us with a tangible tip to building a high performance culture.

This episode is all about our upcoming training in February to help wellness and HR professionals take small steps into the next generation of wellness. With the wellness industry evolving, Rebecca and I want to provide a safe and supportive environment where we provide actionable and applicable advice on how to have more impact in your role.

Listen in to hear Rebecca and I chat about how and why we came up with the idea for the training, why we are the right people to teach it and a bit more about the content and who’s a good fit.

Also, don’t miss out on an opportunity to participate in a small group training starting in October. Here's a bit more about it:

  • This will be a small group of up to 5 people.
  • We'll meet weekly for 6 weeks online via Zoom. Tentative dates - October 24 to Dec. 5 (skipping Thanksgiving week). I say tentative because I want to see how many are in first to make sure the dates work.
  • Each week, I'll present 15 minutes or so of content and then we'll talk about how (and if) it would work in your organization.
  • Although I have topics in mind (other things that impact health, understanding your company, new metrics, key questions to ask, framework, etc.) I also want group members to tell me where they need help.
  • This will be informal and I'll want a lot of group participation. I want it to feel like a supportive "tribe".
  • If you’re looking for support in planning a more holistic approach in 2019, then this training is for you.

For those that sign up for my February training (more weeks and more formalized), this small group training is free. If you just want to do the standalone, then it's $350. Just use this contact form if you only want the small group training.

The deadline to get in on the small group training is October 17th.
