Live Webinar February 17th, 2016 – 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST
By: The Corporate Education Group (REP 1011) Course
Duration: 1 Hour Credits: 1 Category A PDU – Free PDU

Projects are the mechanism to realize business strategy, create competitive advantage and achieve organizational transformation.

Important stuff, but most often, projects are being done in addition to ongoing business operations with constrained resources.

Therefore success is dependent on getting the right resources, spending your budget wisely, and keeping people focused and motivated to execute.

Warning signs that a project is headed to failure include missed deadlines, confusion, conflict and churning. All this can contribute to project manager and team burnout.

Effective project managers look for these early warning signs of failure and burnout so they can take corrective actions, but more importantly, they proactively work to avoid them.

In this webinar you will learn tips and techniques to:

  • Cultivate a healthy environment for your project, your team, and yourself
  • Create best practices you can rely on to drive the project forward
  • Leverage relationships to support and motivate

Practical Employee Engagement:
Drive Results

Employee engagement has moved front and center with many organizations, but it means different things to different companies.

Employee advocacy, employee referrals, employee productivity…all of these are part of a larger “Employee Engagement Ecosystem.”

Join Patrick Rooney (LinkedIn profile) Founder & Chief Customer Officer, QUEsocial & Jess McCoss (LinkedIn profile) VP Customer Success, QUEsocial. Come away with a framework to think about Employee Engagement in a practical way, and concrete steps to drive immediate business results.

Culture Is The Lifeblood Of An Organization

Culture reflects the values, beliefs, and behaviors that determine how people perform and interact with each other every day.

In some organizations, it is widely discussed and understood by all. In others, it is an unspoken set of rules and norms. Regardless of how it’s communicated, culture plays an enormous role in the performance of organizations.

Korn Ferry’s recent global survey on leadership development explored issues surrounding culture, change, and leadership development.

Join this webcast to learn about:

  • Common organizational drivers to improve culture and the most used strategies to improve culture.
  • Best practices for aligning culture to strategy through leadership development.
  • Key barriers that prevent positive culture change and alignment to the business strategy.
  • The role leaders and leadership development can play in accelerating, reinforcing, and sustaining culture change to accelerate organization performance
