Do More With Less

Keep Your Team Engaged, Inspired, and Performing.


Budget cuts and layoffs are forcing you and your team to do more with less. How can you keep your team engaged, inspired, and performing with fewer resources? A high performing team starts with a high performing manager. Great managers drive 48% more profit for their company. How you show up as a leader makes all the difference. In this workshop, Aaron Levy gives you a roadmap to help your team find its stride.

Remote Leadership:

How to Succeed in The New World of Work

With the recent ban on travel and the closure of many offices around the U.S. and the world, thousands of businesses and millions of people are now forced to work remotely. It’s forcing businesses and employees out of their comfort zones, having to not only figure out how to work from home but also how to use new technologies, adapt and, ultimately, innovate.

In this workshop, Aaron Levy walks you through the five steps for leading a remote team.

The Future of Work:

Leading a Multi-Generational Workforce

Today’s workplace can encompass employees from four different generations, all who have been shaped by their own unique social, environmental and personal experience. While people all share the same basic human needs, they are motivated and inspired differently. Aaron Levy discusses the motivating factors and nuances between the generations in the workplace, how to best lead and inspire them, and unite them together as a high performing team.

Open, Honest, and Direct:

Difficult Conversations: 

How to Set Yourself Up for Success

Difficult conversations can be a source of anxiety and hinder our productivity in the workplace. Join Aaron Levy of Raise The Bar for a discussion about how to eliminate our emotional filters and respond, rather than react. Whether you need to discuss performance issues with an employee, deliver bad news to a client, or serve as a mediator for your team, this process will help you to frame the conversation for the best possible outcome.

Listening with Intention and Attention:

How to Motivate Your Team

Listening is hard, and we’ve likely not practiced or trained this skill properly, which is why most people suck at listening—and also why most of us go through each day of our lives not being truly heard. Where there is a collective problem, however, there is also an opportunity. In this session, Aaron Levy shares how you can improve your ability to listen and in turn have a profound impact on the way you lead your people.
