Now there is a way for leaders at all levels to develop unwavering optimism, personal magnetism, and unshakeable sense of self-confidence to make remarkable results happen.
When you LEAD POSITIVE you zoom in on what is strong, valuable, and possible. What you see, say, and do inspires those around you to walk together toward a new positive direction. While conventional approaches focus on showing leaders how to acquire industry expertise, strategic capability, and operational savvy, LEAD POSITIVE is an internal development process that zeros in on transforming what the leader sees, says, and does. In short, this approach helps leaders to shift internally so they can excel externally.
During this hour-long webinar, Dr. Kathy Cramer, author of Lead Positive: What Highly Effective Leaders See, Say, and Do and founder of Asset-Based Thinking, will present recent findings in neuroscience and positive psychology together with the experiences of exemplary leaders to make these motivational leadership strategies come alive.
Highly engaged employees help to build and sustain a culture where people want to work and are excited to deliver great results. In return, employees have a positive impact on our relationships with customers, suppliers and communities. At Ingersoll Rand, they understand, appreciate and embrace their differences and use these strengths to continuously improve their business. In 2012, Ingersoll Rand rapidly deployed The Ingersoll Rand Leader: Engaging Your Employees (EYE) training to a global audience and found that leaders attending the training session had an increase in engagement scores two times higher than their counterparts who did not attend the program. To enhance the support the managers, the company also created an on-line and simple support site that highlighted just a few critical tools and activities managers could take, aligned with content from EYE. To leverage the leader’s role in engagement, they also worked to improve engagement by providing coaching to help managers engage employees on what matters most to them and focus local accountability to drive more tailored and meaningful actions.
In this session, learn more about Ingersoll Rand’s efforts to grow engagement, hear more about the crucial role played by leaders, and how their formula for success could be applied inside your organization.
The research is definitive; engaged employees are more productive. So, how do you engage employees? It is simple, through authentic leadership. An authentic leader has the passion and capability to transparently engage, motivate and move people toward the achievement of shared goals. There is considerable information that describes authentic leadership but, precious little about how to develop and demonstrate it. To guide your development of authentic leadership we assembled a three-part system called the Authentic Leadership Framework™ that includes- character, context and competency. With each of these components fully developed and demonstrated, your authentic leadership ability will engage employees, directly affecting the bottom line.
In the midst of operating in a world best described as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous), your leaders are facing increasing demands from all directions: employees, shareholders, customers, the C Suite and beyond. What if you could increase their “brain bandwidth” so they could focus on rapid problem solving while also collaboratively building teams, managing daily challenges and still keeping a strategic eye on the future? Learn how to apply what we know about the brain to quickly build the agility your current and future leaders need to stay ahead in today's complex business environment. This practical, engaging and interactive webinar will give you an easy-to-apply system and tools to help you align your leadership development strategies with the growing need for agility. You’ll leave with new models and an action plan for developing leaders who can better predict and plan for the future while managing successfully today.

This session is a visit to “Mr. Good Wrench” and is designed to ensure that your company’s HR engine and obligations are legally compliant in California and properly functioning. We will review recent trends and developments in privacy, corporate legal compliance, class action avoidance, workplace crisis management, and outline issues and concerns to be addressed in a self-audit, including providing a “self-audit checklist” that runs the gamut from the company’s organizational structure, to workplace planning, to recruitment and hiring, to hours of work, to compensation, to communication, to discipline, termination and leaves of absence, and to union-related issues (i.e., “employee engagement”) a very hot topic with the re-vitalization of the NLRB and the fulfillment of the “Obama Agenda.”
California Employment Defense Attorney Nicole Kamm will present the latest statutory changes affecting employers. The new laws govern large companies as well as those businesses or households with only one, a handful of workers. The first step in preventing employee claims and potential litigation is to stay on top of current legislation.
Nicole Kamm represents employers in discrimination, harassment, wage and hour and wrongful termination/retaliation matters. She defends clients in state and federal courts, as well as before administrative agencies governing employee rights and protections. She works with business owners and executives in very diverse industries, including start-up companies, and businesses in the retail, food service, health care, transportation and manufacturing industries.
Today the California Departments of Child Support Services and Employment Development Departments’ presentation will discuss what employers should know about New Employee Reporting. We will provide an overview of the laws and requirements of new employee reporting, discuss Employment Development Department electronic business services available for new employee reporting and communicate the cause and effect of reporting inconsistent data to both state and federal entities and the impact of inconsistent data at the local levels specifically employers, employees and their dependents not just in California but in all states complying with new hire reporting.
When it comes to wage-and-hour lawsuits, there are two categories of companies in California: those who already have experience with them, and those who will soon. Wage-and-hour lawsuits – and particularly, class actions – remain big business in California. And, this area of law is especially harsh on employers, as even innocent mistakes are punished with big penalties and attorneys’ fees. Even minor “gotcha” violations can turn into bet-the-business cases if brought on a class action basis.
The silver lining is that exposure to liability on some common wage-and-hour claims can be mitigated with appropriate policies. This presentation will focus on those danger areas from which the majority of wage lawsuits arise. Participants will leave the presentation with the ability to identify common trouble spots for compliance problems, and will be able to help their companies take a proactive approach to minimizing risk related to wage-and-hour violations.
With an estimated 50 to 70 million Americans suffering from sleep disorders or insufficient sleep due to habits or chronic insomnia, the overall health of organizations is impacted. To address this need, Ceridian has partnered with the Harvard Medical School Institute of Sleep Medicine in the “Sleep Matters” initiative. This partnership is driven by research supporting a third pillar of health – sleep.
In this webinar, Dr. Stuart Quan from the Harvard Medical School Institute of Sleep Medicine will discuss:
The negative impact of sleep-deprived employees on productivity, sales and service performance and health care costs
The importance of creating organizational policies and practices to support good sleep health
Approaches for improving employee sleep health by offering health coaching and wellness programs
Best practices for educating employees on sleep health
