Our very own Peter Melby will be presenting:
Boss or Babysitter?
Building a sustainable culture of success
Leaders shouldn’t have to babysit team members, but we all end up doing just that at some point. Teams encounter a conundrum: When we trust employees to act on their own, they often don’t do what we need them to do. When we micro-manage them, they don’t perform to their potential and everyone is miserable. We get burned either way. The ticket out of “The Babysitter’s Club” is surprisingly simple, yet nearly always overlooked. Peter Melby, CEO of Greystone Technology, shares stories and experiences outlining the journey to deeply successful culture in an IT company with over 100 team members. He’ll share a simple, proven methodology for organizations at any stage to communicate effectively with team members and avoid the people problems that all successful IT teams must overcome. Peter has shared these insights across the US, Europe, Australia, and Asia in an effort to redefine our global approach to company culture.
