AGENDA

Session

Description

Session 1

Tuesday 1/26

12:00pm-1:00pm PT

Speaker:

Sharna Fabiano

 

Topic:

Leadership and Followership

Session Description:

We understand the importance of great leadership, but what about its counterpart, great followership? Though frequently overlooked, followership actions such as listening, supporting, and exploring are just as influential in our success as more recognized leading activities such as coordinating, delegating, and directing. Training for both roles can make teams stronger, provide a sense of shared purpose, and ensure smooth and successful organizational change. This session includes a brief overview of how leadership and followership skills function together in practice and a discussion of several examples of followership skills in action. Have pen and paper handy for a few short written exercises!

Session 2

Tuesday 1/26 

6:00pm-7:30pm PT

Speaker:

Vera Flame, CFN  

 

Topic:

The Neuroscience of Learning.

Session Description:

The field of neuroscience has made great strides in recent years, revealing how the human brain responds to traditional teaching methods.  This highly interactive session will illuminate conventional wisdom around learning which is counterproductive, and introduce brain-friendly methods to help your organization acquire and retain new information, habits and practices.  You will leave with actionable tools you can apply to training, coaching, and mentoring.

Session 3

Wednesday 1/27 

12:00pm-1:00pm PT

Speaker:

Asia Bribiesca-Hedin

Topic:

The Big 6 Career Success Factors

Session Description:

Learn the winning strategies and exact steps to reclaim your life, your confidence, and your career from a toxic, abusive, or unsupportive work environment.  You'll learn: 

  • What to stop doing immediately and what to do instead to become the CEO of your career.

  • How to reignite your confidence, competence, and network with The "Big 6" career success levers.

  • How to boost your professionalism and get noticed by senior leaders without ever interacting with your boss. 

  • How to accelerate your results on your most important career goals (Hint:  It has nothing to do with goal-setting!).

  • A step-by-step approach to implement the strategies immediately.

Integration case study: Engaging and retaining employees through a major change (masterclass) 

Session Description:

Capture best practices and lessons learned from a real-life business challenge. Susan Kun will share Blue Shield of California’s successful strategies and roadmap for integrating nearly 900 newly-acquired employees into its culture and company of 5,700. You will learn how to use practical and engaging change management tactics in creative and innovative ways. The approach applies to any minor change or major transformation in small or large organizations, in-person or virtual.  This case study has won awards in the Change Communication, Internal Communication and Employee Engagement categories from the International Association of Business Communicators.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Gain strategies for keeping the employee experience front and center during significant change

  • Learn how to partner with executives, mid-level leaders and frontline employees to manage an organization through uncertainty
