Surely you know plenty of people who need to make a change, but despite your most well-intentioned efforts, they resist. Why? Because people fundamentally fear change. The fact is we can wait for a problem to become dramatic or we can have a conversation before it becomes a large problem. Drawing on his highly successful sales background, and decades of research, this webinar will lay out a simple, repeatable, predictable, and ethical process that will enable you to lead others to discover for themselves what and why they need to change.
Persuasion is not always pretty. To successfully lead through Influence one must learn how and when and where to ask the right questions. If someone is told what the problem is – he or she will take no ownership in fixing it. When we learn how to let others paint the picture for themselves, and do so in an empathetic manner, we have the ability to truly change minds. These are not easy conversations, but in fact can become a true act of kindness.
Human Resources is on the front lines of real-world scenarios that desperately require the need for "Leading through Influence" and that’s exactly what this session will provide.

Did you know that within the first 48 hours of your employees attending a traditional training or learning event, their knowledge retention drops to 33 percent? Did you also know that research now shows that nearly 80 percent of learning in the workplace takes place informally? So why are training departments still spending the vast majority of their budgets on formal training efforts? Informal Learning has become all the rage over the past 5 years in the Learning and Development industry. As we’ve taken a closer look at this powerful discipline we’ve learned that Informal learning can actually be “formalized”, tracked, measured, and implemented through Performance Support. This session will address the methodologies behind designing, implementing, and maintaining effective Performance Support (learning while doing), and how it is now, more than ever, all around us!

Many people may think that because there is high unemployment and lots of good people out of work during these challenging economic times that the talent shortage is over. The truth is the talent shortage is actually getting worse. There are a lot of people out of work, but companies and organizations are still in dire need of the right kind of talent. The larger demographic picture which includes an aging workforce and fewer young people moving into the workforce to replace them, has made the need to attract and retain the best talent even more critical than ever before. Tighter corporate budgets mean that the people who are working are under greater pressure with fewer resources.
In order for a company or organization to sustain itself and be competitive in its market, it needs every person functioning at his or her optimal level. This means that they are healthy, creative, energetic, focused, passionate, and committed to what they do. They need to bring all their best ideas and work effectively and collaboratively together for the common good.
This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.
Do you have your finger on the pulse of your message? Is it what you intend it to be? Are you connected to the nerve center of the audience...are you calling them to action? Doesn’t matter if it’s it written form or spoken word? Are you connecting to your intended audience, the way in which you want?
This webinar will explore how to make a solid connection with your intended audience, every time you address them. Whether they be front-line staff, management, clients, or prospective employers. It will examine the three key aspects of communication (both written and verbal), explore how to curtail your message for accuracy and detail without error and suggest how to solicit a professional check up as necessary.
No one individual controls workplace culture, yet many HR professionals are expected to take ownership of it. When culture is good, there isn’t much of a concern, but when culture turns toxic—that’s where things can get ugly.
