- Introduce yourself.
- Hi, my name is Robin Camerote. I'm a leadership trainer, a facilitator, and an executive coach. I like to think of myself really as a problem solver who is focused on helping leaders and teams work more effectively together. I believe that life is both too short and too long to spend a single day at work, feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied. So my passion is really around helping organizations think about what they want, and then working closely with the individuals to figure out how to get there. Thanks.
- Tell us what you do.
- Hi, my name is Robin Camarote, and I'm a leadership trainer and an executive coach. I believe that all boats rise in our organizations when we bring leadership to all. Too often, traditional programs are reserved for the chosen few, because of the time and the cost associated with them. As an alternative, I deliver a streamlined program that builds those foundational skills, strengthens bonds among employees, and inspires people to bring their best selves to work.
- Tell us about your signature talk.
- Hi, I'm Robin Camarote, and I wanted to tell you about my signature talk. The title is "A Great Place To Work Starts With You". Only 21 percent of employees feel engaged at work, and only 33 percent report feeling like they're thriving. And to me, that leaves so much room for improvement. And as a leader in your organization, you see the toll, that low morale, motivation and engagement take on your business. And frankly, you might relate, because of course, as leaders, you're not immune to the same stresses and frustrations that all employees feel. So, you might worry that time is passing, and kind of wondering if you and your team are on the right path. And this program is really aimed at kind of re-centering, and refocusing everybody on what matters most to them, and what matters most to your business. I believe that life is both too short, and too long to spend time, feeling not fulfilled or unsatisfied at work. After all, we're going to spend 13 years of our lives there. So, having a sense of positive impact and satisfaction is actually possible, and it might even be closer than you think. So this talk focus is really on roles and responsibilities for how we can all make our organizations great places to work. And it challenges some of our traditional thinking on what work should be. Specifically, what you'll learn is how our traditional thinking might be holding us back, how work has changed over time, and how, you know, all the evidence that we're on the cusp of something really new and different. Why disengagement is so common, and how it's perpetuated, and how we can start shifting our workplace culture. And how to dramatically improve engagement by focusing on leadership and ownership for all. Thank you.
