KEYNOTE SPEAKER Don Rheem

Born into the Rheem Manufacturing family, Don Rheem learned early on that the days of a hierarchical approach to management had come and gone. With millennials flooding the workplace and bringing their unique perspectives with them, Don recognized that businesses needed a new leadership paradigm.

Think about it – as human beings, our most compelling need is for connection. As a species, we have evolved to prosper in clans and tribes; in the 21st century, the workplace is the contemporary tribe. This is why it is so critical today that leaders create the conditions where employees feel safe and can form trusting relationships with managers and peers. Don helps business leaders focus on the systems, processes, and environments that match these prosocial conditions. The results? A significant increase in employees’ mental capacity, job performance, and intrinsic drive to give more to their organization – all of which directly impact your bottom line.
