Dr. Mary Donohue

Tuesday, February 24, 2015
5:30 - 8:00 PM



91% of people surveyed over the last eight years don’t trust their boss. The majority of these people hate their work. The workplace is broken. We have invited Dr. Donohue who, along with her team, has spent the last seven years researching and developing some successful strategies for tackling this problem. Her speech will help you understand why the workplace is broken, and give you some tried and true solutions that fix it.

These solutions address, among other issues, differences among generations and promoting intergenerational understanding and collaboration; removing the glass ceiling for women; involving and including minorities.

Although many people talk about the glass ceiling for both women and minorities rarely do few companies act on it.  Dr. Donohue's experience shows that it is possible to break it, reducing churn of these valuable team members by 50% in as little as 16 weeks.

Dr. Donohue’s research first started in 2007, found that mentoring, when structured, measured and standardized, is a tool for leaders to shift behavior and provide a successful roadmap for change because mentoring kills the Isolation Factor.

Dr. Donohue will explain why the isolation factor occurs and use data to show you how you can increase retention and engagement to break the glass ceiling. She will share tips from her book The Donohue Mentoring System to help you design a mentoring program that breaks barriers reducing the Isolation Factor.
