Seminar: Interviewing Tactics and Mitigating Bias

Friday, October 28, 2022 – 11 am to 12 pm (noon) CST

While we’ve always thought it, new research shows that team diversity across neural thought, background, and life experience is crucial to innovation and maintaining high-performance cultures. Typical processes for identifying and hiring talent are often wrought with bias. Mitigating this bias, especially as an interviewer, is vital to help select top candidates. We’ll examine the why and how of interviewing without bias.

Seminar: Creating and Maintaining Healthy Relationships

Friday, November 18, 2022 – 11 am to 12 pm (noon) CST

Healthy relationships not only lead to increased satisfaction in life; but are also proven to contribute to fewer physical and mental health problems. Building and sustaining relationships are at the heart of great families, teams, and even organizations. While individual relationships help the few, healthy team relationships lead to strong bonds, leading to healthier organizations. This seminar talks about taking time for relationships.

Seminar: Creating Effective Presentations

Friday, December 9, 2022 – 11 am to 12 pm (noon) CST

We all want to be heard and understood at work, and most of the time, we have something important to say. A presentation is a great way to get your point across, whether assigned or for communicating your thoughts. While there are well-known processes for organizing and presenting information, new tools and tactics continue to evolve. We’ll cover both the traditional and innovative ways to create a compelling presentation.

Seminar: High-Performance Goal Setting

Friday, January 13, 2023 – 11 am to 12 pm (noon) CST

In a high-performance culture, individuals work hard to meet goals, feel engaged and aligned with the company’s values, and teams trust each other to get the work done that they were hired to do. What is the best way to ensure work gets done? Goal setting. Individuals should set personal goals that resonate with the rest of the team and are relevant to the rest of the organization. But how? In this seminar, we’ll talk about setting some high-performance goals.
