Alliance Speaker
Keynote: Human Connection – The Most Powerful Retention Tool In Residential Construction
Workshop: Recruiting and Retaining Through High Stakes Storytelling.
Friday, September 24 | 1:00PM (keynote), 2:45PM & 4:00PM (workshop)


Human connection is an endeavor, like any strategic skill, that is under-trained, under-valued, and requires deep work to truly achieve strategic outcomes. This one day Alliance Day training will familiarize participants with human connection and strategic storytelling for business and give them immediate tools they can apply; specifically in the realm of recruiting and retention.

Workshop Summary

In this 3-module session, Scott will help you see the invisible power of storytelling to ‘own a room’ when you are influencing in the realm of recruiting and retention. These same actionable skills they'll learn in this hands-on event will empower their client engagement skills as well. This will include a course guide and post-training survey to determine participant perspective on training effectiveness.

About Scott Mann
Scott Mann is a master at building relationships in high-stakes, competitive environments. As a Green Beret in the United States Army, he forged bonds and solved problems using values and leadership skills that moved people around the world to stand up for themselves. His secret? He was able to restore trust and create human connections in places where that didn’t seem possible. He is now bringing those same principles to corporate boardrooms and conference rooms, where trusted leadership is more valuable—and more vulnerable—than ever.

Scott spent 23 years in the United States Army, 18 of that as a Green Beret, where he specialized in unconventional, high-impact missions all over the world including Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Scott’s problem-solving abilities were honed during long deployments in places where trust was absent, conflict rampant and he had seconds to make real connections with local communities using his head, his heart, and when threats closed in against these communities, his hands. Using those leadership skills, Scott now helps organizations gain a better understanding of its internal culture, while exposing the potential for conflict that exists when trust has deteriorated. In the same way he empowered local tribes in Iraq and Afghanistan to make transformative decisions, using very few resources, Scott teaches corporate leaders and their teams the relationship-building techniques that drive so many of his successful combat operations.

Scott appears frequently on CNN, Bloomberg, Fox and Friends, Fox Business News, News Max and dozens of syndicated radio shows including National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal Radio, Fox News Radio and the Jim Bohannon Show. His op-eds have appeared in The Tampa Tribune, Washington Post and the Small Wars Journal.

Scott is a high-performance breath coach certified by Dr Belisa Vranich.
