Keynote Topic #1


Every business or enterprise needs to have their people performing at the highest possible level. Yet, a recent study of 10,000 people reported the average employee wastes 2.09 hours each day at work on non-related job tasks.


The Average salaried employee in the US makes $39,795 per year which translates to costing a company approximately $10,396 per year per employee! PROCRASTINATION, as it turns out, is one of the most expensive, yet invisible costs to both individuals and companies worldwide. Is it possible that this imperceptible problem is taking money out of your pocket, preventing your company from growing, or holding you back from promotion?

There is a silent yet pervasive epidemic that stifles innovation, and consistently burns out our top human capital costing organizations millions of dollars in wasted time. This insidious dynamic that costs organizations millions of dollars each year is called Priority Dilution™.
