    • How much would it add to your bottom line if you could reduce turnover by
    earning and retaining the spirit and loyalty of your Hispanic employees?
    • They are your best workers, and you are in a Catch 22
    • 4. Your best Latino workers are of this generation and you want them to speak more English
    • 5. On the other hand, those of this generation never will, and you don’t speak much Spanish
    • 6. SOLUTION: “Respectful Accommodation”
    • 7. Accept that reality; work with them in Spanish; dedicate time and money to train and develop them as you do your best English-speaking workers

    Hidden Deal Killers I Uncovered that Financial Due Diligences Missed
    • Widespread, intense, long-standing, buried gender & racial conflict
    • Incompatibility of former paternalistic management style with more open climate
    requiring employee involvement
    • Lacking a frame of reference, employees were threatened by new core values and
    processes of “employee involvement
    • Issues of non-performance in executive team
    • 14. Years of local management conflict, denial regarding their poor performance
    • 15. Managers fearful about being terminated
    • Partners’ incompatible, clashing corporate cultures and styles
    • Poles-apart disagreement regarding management values
    • Many visible “red flags” indicating serious employee fear issues
    • The retirement-age owner “was” the company
    • There were no sustainable processes
    • There was a $2M annual drain, undetected and on-going for years
    Let’s Talk BEFORE it’s too late, shall we?
