Close-Up Television welcomes Dr. Michael Armor from

DALLAS, May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Close-Up Television announced today that it will feature Dr. Michael Armor in an exclusive one-on-one interview with host Jim Masters.

Dr. Michael Armor is the founder and CEO of Strategic Leadership Development International and an expert in how personal behavior and organizational dynamics influence the process of cultural change.

Since 2001, SLDI has been helping managers develop the skills they need to build a more secure and promising future, and Dr. Armor has dedicated his life to understanding how best to help leaders realize their potential. He has worked with over 700 executives and entrepreneurs and trained thousands more on four continents.

Coming out of COVID, many companies are discovering that the way their employees want to work is going to change. Future operations will no longer be at all like they were in the pre-COVID era. Dr. Armor helps these organizations determine the best way for them to operate in this new reality, which will require change on many fronts.

“Employees have found that they really enjoy working from home,” says Dr. Armor. “They really like the flexibility of going to work whenever they feel their energy and creativity is at its best.”

Additionally, employees under 35 have entered the market with a completely different set of expectations of what they are looking for in a job. Many will take a pay cut to work where the environment is more fun and creative.

“My generation would never have considered something like this,” says Dr. Armour. “Where can I make the most money? Where can I climb the corporate ladder fastest? That’s no longer what motivates large blocks of employees, and companies are learning how to manage employees who are not at all motivated by the things that motivate high-ranking people.”

Dr. Armor says leaders aren’t always good at communicating the need for change before making the change.

“With large-scale change, people have to first understand it cognitively and then accept it emotionally,” says Dr. Armour. “Both processes take time. When a proposed change is complex, people have to hear it many times before fully grasping it. Only then can they begin to overcome their emotional hesitation to support it. During this period of emotional adjustment, leaders must continue to highlight the reason for the change, and they must repeatedly encourage people to voice their questions and concerns about what the change will mean. Ultimately, leaders must help their employees feel safe, informed, respected, valued and understood.
