Dodging Coconuts

Why Dodging Coconuts? What does this mean? We live in an era that is not necessarily worse than any other, it is just very different! The challenges your business overcame in the past are very different from the challenges that are now coming your way. We must learn how to best “dodge the coconuts” of what is now normal as it continuously evolves.

This half day event is especially targeted towards business owners, managers, HR staff, and all company leadership

  • Learn how to best devise & implement common sense strategies for fair, respectful collaboration that protects your most valuable assets –your employees.
  • Prevent disruption, loss of productivity, employee turnover, and lawsuits!
  • Keep workplace culture inclusive and innovative by changing your employees’ mindset. Whether they’re in the office or in the field, on the clock or out on the town, sharing a desk or sharing social media.
