NEW ONLINE Leading Effectively During Turbulent Times
Many of us are still reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic.  The enormity of change that people have been faced with is, for most, unprecedented.   While you may have integrated planned change into work lives successfully, this change is different.  It was largely unexpected, and, therefore, unplanned.  Its true enormity and scope were unknown from the outset. It has been said the priority of a leader is to ‘define reality.’  In this live, remote session via Zoom, you will learn to lead others to adjust effectively during times of chaos; how to build resiliency; and how to engage others with creating the future by building an adaptable work culture. $51

NEW ONLINE Effective Performance Management Done Remotely
In our Pre-COVID-19 word of work, a common description of performance management read: “A process for establishing & maintaining a shared agreement between employees and managers/supervisors about their partnership at work.”   Most workplaces are organized around a clear hierarchy, where all manager/supervisor-employee partnerships are essential.  They collectively contribute to the overall success or failure of the organization over time.   Unlike our Pre-COVID-19 Work World, however, many managers and supervisors now oversee employees and operations off-site.  This dynamic, of performance managing remotely, is new to many.  In this workshop, we will answer:  How do we effectively facilitate the specifics of our partnership agreement with our direct reports?  How do we make sure that our plan includes the opportunity to regularly discuss and make progress in six key performance areas? This online course is live and interactive via Zoom using the latest research and useful tools.  Learn to create and implement a new remote work partnership with direct reports. $51
