End The Talent Exodus

You know that the war for talent is fiercer than ever. You care about creating an engaged workplace. You do all you can to create an environment in which talent thrives and yet great people still leave your business.‍ They get poached by the competition. They decide they are not progressing fast enough or they make a move into something completely new, without warning. The time, money and energy spent replacing them is exhausting. Not to mention the loss of morale and business productivity. So how do you plug the leak? Career conversations are the key. The answers and practical steps are what you’ll find in a fascinating talk by career expert and author of ‘Your Life Plan’, Erica Sosna. In it you’ll understand the root of the problem and how to solve it by using career conversations to tap into the inner motivations of your key talent.

Your Career Plan

The world of work is changing fast. We are overwhelmed by new opportunities and new roles. Some of the top jobs being recruited for now did not exist just 15 years ago. As an employee, how do you navigate this changing world and be sure that you are making the right decisions for yourself? And if you would like to choose a new career path, how do you begin to map out the journey to take you there? Erica Sosna’s Your Career Plan method is designed to address all this more. Filled with practical know-how, real-world stories and fun anecdotes, Erica provides you with all you need to decide on what success looks like for you and take action to make it a reality.

Why Stories Matter

Since the dawn of time, we have been making sense of our lives and experiences through the power of story. The fireplace may look slightly different, but we still gather together to share our adventures, inspire, warn and teach through the medium of storytelling, Great leaders in the fields of politics, business and social change are great storytellers.Their presence, potency and power leave a legacy through the ages. Stories will bring energy and excitement to all of your most important messages, making them memorable, exciting and ‘viral’. In this talk, professional storyteller and two time TEDX speaker Erica Sosna, reveals the simple secrets of successful storytelling and gives you a framework to tell your own compelling stories.

In this inspiring keynote you will learn:
• How to use the neuroscience of storytelling makes your key message sticky.
• How facts and data are trumped every time by the power of a well told tale.
• How to design a simple story with a compelling narrative.
• How to tell an impactful story without the use of notes.

Erica was the inaugural speaker at our internal Learning and Development program, Swan School. She presented ‘How to be the Hero of Your Own Story’ to our team in an entertaining, useful and engaging way. Many of the themes presented were relevant to our working lives as well as outside the office, and I walked in the next morning to hear people still talking about the session. A great way to start our L&D program and will be recommending Erica to others!

Black Swan Data

Erica worked with MSD to design and deliver a Career Coaching and Engagement one-day event for 150 People Managers. The career method was just what we needed and was delivered by Erica and a colleague who immediately built rapport and impact with a large audience. The feedback from the attendees was extremely positive and I have no doubt that results will follow.

Erica was so professional to work with and also so lovely, she participated as a panellist for the Robert Walters Empowering Women in the Workplace event and came with so much knowledge and insightful information. She truly is a career expert and I know I can always turn to her for valuable life and career advice.
