Trust is certainly a game changer!  Should the trust level be high or minimal it will surely have ramifications for your project.

Billie will discuss:

  • Economics of Trust
  • Clues for detecting missing trust
  • What causes contribute to a lack of trust in your projects today?

  • Building Trust (quickly)
  • Trust Crusher

Recruitment Is Marketing:
Get The Candidates You Are Looking For

What’s strengthening or weakening your employer brand?

Job seekers are looking at the opinions of current and former employees posting on social media, internal company wikis and sites like Glassdoor. In fact, studies show 96% of job seekers are likely to read your company reviews before accepting a job offer.

That makes it imperative for community managers, employment brand managers and talent acquisition leaders to curate and leverage those employee perspectives to attract candidates who want to know “what it’s really like to work” at your organization.

Join Alicia Garibaldi (LinkedIn profile) for “Recruitment Marketing 101: Thinking Like a Marketer to Promote Your Employer Brand,” where she’ll explore how global healthcare insurance company Cigna upgraded its employer branding and social media marketing strategies to help candidates develop a strong interest in its organization.

Key takeaways:

  1. How to amplify your company’s message and employer brand across multiple social media channels.
  2. The value of responding to company reviews, accentuating the positive and authentically answering the negative.
  3. Ways to market your company to both active and passive job seekers, Millennials and candidates on mobile.

Susan Fowler  (dubbed “Motivation Expert Extraordinaire” by PDU Of The Day)  will share the three skills for creating a highly productive and actively engaged workplace. – Don’t miss this one!

In this webinar, motivation expert Susan Fowler will share the three skills for creating an actively engaged workplace by examining what leaders intentionally or accidentally do that either undermines or facilitates people’s intentions to perform beyond standard expectations—and sustain that performance over time.

Drawing from the design of The Ken Blanchard Companies’ new Optimal Motivation training program, Susan will explore what leaders can do to enhance and develop every individual’s natural inclination to grow and excel.

Learn 3 skills that help facilitate people’s optimal motivation:

  • Identifying an individual’s current motivation by exploring the characteristics of six possible motivational outlooks.
    Shifting motivational outlooks through “why” questions, promoting mindfulness, aligning with values, and connecting with purpose.
  • Reflecting and maintaining higher levels of motivation by examining well-being, considering key reasons for shifting or not shifting, and developing the skills to reframe any goal or task.
  • Shifting motivational outlooks through “why” questions, promoting mindfulness, aligning with values, and connecting with purpose.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what leaders can do to create a work environment where people are self-motivated to perform at high levels, go above and beyond job descriptions, and work collaboratively toward common goals.

Presenter : Susan Fowler (LinkedIn profile) Senior Consulting Partner The Ken Blanchard Companies is co author with Ken Blanchard of Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager: Increasing Effectiveness Through Situational Self Leadership. In this captivating business parable, Susan tells the story of a young advertising executive who is about to lose his job. During a series of talks with a gifted magician he comes to realize the power of taking responsibility for his situation and not playing the victim. Passing along the knowledge learned from the One Minute Manager, the magician teaches the three skills of self leadership. These three techniques not only empower him to keep his job but show him what he needs to know in order to keep growing, learning, and achieving.

For years now we’ve had powerful application servers like PHP, Node, and ColdFusion, that could create our web apps.

But there has been a shift recently in terms of how much we do on an application server versus how much we can do on the browser itself, as well as how much is done on a mobile app instead.

Static site generators provide a powerful middle ground between a full app server deployment and a simple collection of static files.

In this webcast Raymond will talk about why you would use static site generators, how they work in general, how one (Harp) works in particular, and discuss how to add dynamic aspects back into the static site.

Presenter: Raymond Camden  (LinkedIn profile, @raymondcamden )  is a developer advocate and Cold Fusion Guru for IBM. His work focuses on the MobileFirst platform, hybrid mobile development, Node.js, HTML5, and ColdFusion. He’s a published author and presents at conferences and user groups on a variety of topics.
