Strategies and Methodologies to Change the Way You Recruit, Hire, and Lead Employees

Based on Eric’s New Book for Most Every Industry

How do great companies attract top talent, encourage innovation, and instill a desire for excellence? That’s the question Eric Chester set out to answer.

By interviewing more than one hundred acclaimed C-level leaders across all industries, Eric discovered commonalities in how successful leaders create cultures of engagement. In this entertaining and content-rich multimedia presentation, he shares those discoveries with you.

You’ll discover the secrets and strategies that legendary companies use to:


  • Consistently attract top talent to their organizations with minimal recruiting
  • Engage employees so that they’re motivated to work harder, perform better, and provide outstanding service
  • Significantly reduce costly turnover and develop hourly young talent into long-term leaders
  • Create award-winning workplace cultures that generate priceless PR and brand awareness

The purpose of schools is to prepare students for success in the real world. Developing a healthy work ethic not only prepares young people to be better students, but also prepares them to be better employees, better leaders, and better citizens.


Developing work ethic in students isn’t optional. It’s a responsibility that should be shared by every individual employed by a school district—whether in the classroom, the cafeteria, the administration office, or the school bus.


Eric Chester is the leading authority on developing work ethic in teens and young adults. His presentation will illustrate why the work ethic in America has declined, and he’ll provide solid, actionable ideas and tools for instilling the pride of a job well done.

In this presentation, participants will:

Discover the 7 Indisputable Core Values that every employer demands from every worker, and every successful school develops within their students
Find out how to promote a classroom culture rooted in reliability, professionalism, initiative, integrity, and respect
Explore how to instill an attitude of gratitude among your student population and make them motivated learners
