Action Learning is a dynamic process that helps participants learn individually, as a team and as an organization.

Ultimately, this process helps organizations develop creative, flexible and successful projects that can serve as best practices and increase shareholder value.

In this webinar, participants will see:

  • Examples of measuring the return on investment in executive education, looking at the incremental economic benefit generated from program projects.
  • An effective Action Learning process applied to real world individual or team projects increases the probability of meeting and/or exceeding the commitments senior leadership is expecting.
  • How the application of action learning can foster invaluable insight and perspective to individuals and teams – getting them to think about aspects of their projects they have not considered, possibly because they have been too close to them.

Presenter: Thomas E. Conine, Jr., Ph.D. (LinkedIn profile) is President of TRI Corporation, which specializes in corporate education, experiential leadership and simulation programs. Dr. Conine is also a professor of finance at Fairfield University.

If 92% of Americans still fail to achieve their New Year’s Resolutions in their personal lives, then what hope do we have of setting and achieving goals at work?

Successful goal-setting isn’t just a once-a-year sprint, following a framework checklist or tracking in a spreadsheet.

Goal-setting requires constant visibility, strong enablement with managers, and an Agile- framework for success.

Participants  can expect to:

  • Identify techniques that help teams and individuals collaborate efficiently to achieve relevant goals.
  • Compare different goal types, pair them strategically for significant results and help teams to adjust to new information, competition and pressures.
  • Discover the benefits of designing and redesigning goals that create an impactful connection with employees.

This is PART 1 of a 2-part series exploring ways employees and managers approach goal-setting to increase alignment with company-wide initiatives.

Most eLearning, webinars and face-to-face training focus on memorization.

Critical thinking and building expertise are left to chance. As a result, this environment adds to failure on the job, poor performance and yet costly training.

Furthermore, the challenge has been that software for learning systems reinforces memorization and discourages thinking and reflection.

However, on the contrary, when tasks change quickly and business leaders want demand agility, critical thinking and rapid expertise development is the new norm.

In this webinar, Ray will share with you his experiences.

Ray will cover:

  • What are the costs to business when critical thinking is not part of work processes?
  • When is memorization as learning ever justified?
  • What is the science in “instant thinking” and “deep dive thinking”?
  • How would you design a learning experience that fosters critical thinking and rapid expertise development?
  • A walkthrough and demo of an in-house software project that accelerates expertise development, critical analysis, solutions generations and success impacts reporting will be shared.

Presenter : Ray Jimenez (LinkedIn profile) – Chief Learning Architect and Founder of Vignettes Learning and StoryImpacts.com, a systems development and consulting company specializing in e-Learning and Performance Systems, eLearning course development and interactive tools and social learning community platform.

How To Lead With Presence & Impact!

Why does emotional intelligence (EI) matter? Because at the core of every outstanding leader are the abilities to connect, achieve, inspire and act with resilience.

Emotional intelligence has evolved from an area of research to a recognized set of best practices and core competencies that are at the heart of successful leadership. Today we use EI as an integrated set of skills that underpin highly effective, fast-reacting, and innovative organizations.

This webcast offers you a powerful introduction to the highly popular hands-on AMA seminar, Leading with Emotional Intelligence.

To give a real sense of EI in practice, we’ll take a deep look at how EI drives and facilitates your ability to lead collaboration.  You’ll also learn about the F.L.I.P. Modes of Conversation as a “must have” tool for collaboration and relationship enhancement.

If you want to become the consummate emotionally intelligent leader, this webcast is a great place to start.

Learn:

  • Emotional Intelligence (EI):
    • What it is and why it’s such a critical leadership skill
  • The 4 cornerstones of EI
  • How EI underpins and facilitates 6 core leadership competencies
  • The role EI plays in leading collaboration
  • How EI skills can help you overcome defensiveness
  • Learn how to F.L.I.P. a conversation toward collaboration

We encourage you to register even if you are unable to attend live; you’ll receive replay information following the event.

Job postings have out-paced employee hiring for the first time in 16 years. Within 3 years, it wouldn’t be unheard of for a company to lose 35% of its employees to new jobs (10% of whom would still be within the company).

In an organization of 1000 employees, that means 315 people will have left for other opportunities.

  • What can companies do to stay competitive and retain more employees?
  • Increase pay?
  • Provide more benefits?
  • Modify corporate culture?

While all of these variables can help reverse these trends, a strong foundation in a training and development program can make a significant impact to the stickiness of your workforce.

Managers who attend this event will learn:

  • Ways to foster employee development with individual and team goal-setting tactics
  • Strategies to facilitate employee engagement (i.e. through mentorship opportunities)
  • Tips to empower employees to explore career possibilities within the company
