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.”
Welcome to the Institute for Developing Organizational Leadership Capabilities! A special thank you to our speakers and our attendees for your participation and support. Join us over the next two days for our exciting lineup of informative sessions covering the hot topics and trends surrounding the Developing Organizational Leadership Capabilities community. Amy Niras, Community Facilitator and Advisory Board member will update you on the Institute's accomplishments thus far and will highlight the event calendar for this session.
During this short, 15-minute session, Amy will provide an overview of the certification program (have you signed up yet?) and an update on hours accumulated to date. Find out what you have missed, and what is in store for 2014.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Because life is not a multiple choice test, if you want to know if someone can cut it as a frontline leader, you need to see that individual in action. And that means action as a leader. Too often, first-time managers are promoted because they’re good at what they do in a technical role—yet they lack formal leadership experience and are often left to sink or swim and figure out how to manage people.
Wouldn’t it be great to observe your would-be leaders in real-world situations to evaluate their preparedness and diagnose existing skills gaps before they advance to the front lines?
Join this live demonstration of DDI’s Manager Ready® behavioral assessment to understand how it provides the insight you need to truly know who is ready AND what leadership skills gaps they possess. This demo will show you how participants are given real-world situations to which they must respond using behaviors they would demonstrate on-the-job. And we’ll explain how trained assessors observe and evaluate more than 900 behaviors, across nine critical frontline leadership competencies.
Finally, we will show you how Manager Ready® not only provides you and your frontline leaders with deep insight into specific, need-to-improve leadership behaviors, it also helps guide them through the development planning process via access to development tools and a variety of individual and group feedback options.
In this session, Howard M. Guttman shares his research findings on the inner workings of 25-high-performance teams that cut across industries and vary in size from large to small companies. For example: Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Mars Inc., Novartis, and L’Oreal.
Howard Guttman isolates the key attributes and related behaviors of high-performance teams, and in the process, challenges prevailing notions of team leadership, membership, accountability, decision making, and conflict, replacing them with a fresh, horizontal approach to achieving ever-higher levels of results.
The session also explores the dynamics of team behavior and how to move around the “Team Development Wheel,” from Stage One testing to Stage Four high performance. Howard Guttman explores the mind set and skill shifts that are required, along with an agreement on protocols, those rules of the road that govern decision making and team-member behavior.
Join us for this very informative webinar on the topic of, The Top 5 Game Changers in Elearning and What They Can Do for You. Is your present opinion of elearning skewed by the past experiences with CBT? While the concept of computer-based training (CBT) has been around for 20+ years, more recent advancements in technology and cloud-based elearning have brought organizations into a new era of professional development solutions. Join us to learn more about the top 5 game changers in this industry and why your organization shouldn’t be without these modern options for learning and development. Webinar speaker Cindy Simms of Skillsoft will share her industry expertise for the session.
Strategic HR is not about criticizing the HR function, nor is it about lofty HR ideals. Instead, it is a practical and achievable opportunity for HR to play a significant role in driving business profits. This session will present specific actions that HR functions and HR professionals can take to develop and sustain a strategic approach to their work. These actions for HR functions and HR professionals were revealed through survey, case study, and interview-based research conducted by nonprofit APQC. Elissa Tucker, APQC’s human capital management research program manager, will present best practices learned from researching strategic HR functions at IBM Global Business Services and Nissan North America. She will also share strategic HR insights gleaned from interviews conducted with HR bloggers China Gorman, Sharlyn Lauby, and William Tincup.
