Webinar – Results Leadership Part I

As a leader, you are no longer an individual contributor and your recognition comes from the results produced by your team of direct-reports. Results are critical for your success as well as for your team members. The key to success is in how you write your goals. You will learn how to write goals to drastically increase your rate of success as well as your ability to hold people accountable. We will also explore another important aspect of leading for results, which is creating a vision that others want to follow.

Webinar – Results Leadership Part II

Two important aspects of accomplishing goals are:  first, measuring and tracking and second, giving and receiving feedback. Achieving a goal is much like nurturing a growing plant — requires care and tending along the way. If you plant corn in the spring without watering or fertilizing and come back in August expecting to have it for dinner, you may be disappointed. As a leader, you need to be checking in, coaching and providing feedback along the way to assure the goal is met by the deadline with all its elements intact.

Webinar – Leadership Skills

What are your leadership styles? Yes, styles plural.  Research shows that effective leaders use multiple styles for different circumstances. Awareness is the first step to broadening your repertoire of skills. Good leaders constantly assess the needs of their team and seek ways to provide development through proper training, coaching and feedback. In this webinar, we’ll focus on good techniques for supervisory oversight and keeping your team on the cutting edge of best practices.

"Networking gives us the power to shine our light where others can see it, as well as to collaborate with those we can help and - just as important - with those that can help us.  One of the biggest mistakes a future leader can make is thinking that she can lead, or even work, alone.  No woman is an island unto herself, and the more resources you have in your network, the more resources you'll have to draw on as you take on more and more leadership roles." - Grace Killelea, The Confidence Effect   Location:...

Webinar – Culture Shock: Surviving Five Generations in One Workplace

In Culture Shock: Surviving Five Generations In One Workplace, Dr. Massey does a deep dive into the five generations at work "But I need me time!" When faced with a young employee looking at her disappointingly after being told she needed to work over a holiday, author Dr. Joanna Dodd Massey did what many Gen X managers do. She thought to herself, “I’ve worked through every vacation I ever took!” But, instead of reacting, she paused and found a compromise to serve both the company and her employee. Americans are experiencing a culture revolution unlike anything we have seen since the 1960's. Millennial's and Gen Z are nearly half of the U.S. population and, as consumers and employees, they are dramatically changing the way we work. In Culture Shock: Surviving Five Generations In One Workplace, Dr. Massey, a communications expert with a Ph. D. in psychology and an MBA, does...

Webinar – How to Build Relationships in Business

Great relationships are people to people and are about value and trust. They are about being a resource to one another. Relationships are the golden ticket to success in all areas of our lives. Relationships are built with open communication, when people show up authentic, real, genuine and truly curious and interested in each other. The greatest relationships are give and take, creating a win/win for both parties. The value in long-term relationships is massive. We never know who we are meeting and the impact they can make. Never go into a relationship, business or personal, wanting something from it like a sale, a personal gain, a job opportunity, etc. Great relationships are people to people and are about value and trust. They are about being a resource to one another. Ivy Slater is a Certified Business and Leadership Coach, speaker, and author of, From the Barre to the Boardroom:...

WICT Midwest 2020 Virtual Book Club (Webinar)

In THE MYTH OF THE NICE GIRL, Fran Hauser deconstructs the negative perception of "niceness" that many women struggle with in the business world.

Sharing a wealth of personal anecdotes and time-tested strategies, she shows women how to reclaim “nice” and sidestep regressive stereotypes about what a strong leader looks like. Her accessible advice and hard-won wisdom detail how to balance being empathetic with being decisive, how to rise above the double standards that can box you in, how to cultivate authentic confidence that projects throughout a room, and much more.   Fran Hauser is a long-time media executive, startup investor, keynote speaker and best-selling author of The Myth of  the...
