Teaching Employees to Succeed Face to Face in a Facebook World

Teaching Employees to Succeed Face to Face in a Facebook World
December 14, 2012 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
Curt Steinhorst, President and Founder(The Promentum Group)
In an age where technology shapes all of our interactions, the emerging workforce lacks the basic fuel that drives business success- communication (speaking, relationship building, etc). How well you fit a message into 140 characters - while hip, cool and important - will never be the critical ingredient driving longterm success. Success is driven by good old fashioned face to face relationship building. Companies with employees who speak on their feet, develop rapport, persuade, influence others, work together well have the competitive advantage in today's world. These basic skills that were once assumed present are no longer the standard. If you don't teach your employees, you will lose.

Curt Steinhorst gets it and can help. As the founder and president of the Promentum Group, he provides speech and messaging consultation to a who's who list of famous athletes (Mike Modano, Apolo Ohno), organizations (YPO, KPMG), and leading business executives.

Curt graduated Magna Cum laude in Speech Communication from Texas A&M University, where he served as President of his 10,000 member class. He understands the nuanced demands of public speaking, but he also has a unique perspective in the field of talent management. Curt previously served as the Vice President of Business Development for a boutique talent management group, and he was a top-producing speaker consultant at one of the nation's largest speaker bureaus.

In addition to his current work at Promentum, Curt is a contributor at the Center for Generational Kinetics, an organization that studies the trends that shape each generation.

Curt's expertise is in intergenerational workforce integration, relating his personal experiences leading Gen Y, who prefers texting and twitter to eye contact, to business leaders and managers. Curt's first book, entitled "Prove Your Boss Wrong: 52 Proven Strategies to Influence, Communicate, and Co-Create," is currently in production.
