About the Sessions

Leadership that Works

Thursday, May 11, 2017 (10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, EDT)

This webinar will include a brief history of leadership and review current leadership theories and practices; with an emphasis on contemporary approaches to effective leadership. Questions such as “Should a supervisor be concerned with their leadership style?” and “What does the research teach us about leadership?” will be addressed. Additional cutting-edge research findings will be presented on the importance of being an effective leader and how different styles of leadership can impact employees’ health, job satisfaction and productivity.


Communication and the Human Side of Work

Thursday, May 18, 2017 (10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, EDT)

This session will provide a new look at communication – not as a “soft” skill but as the most essential “human” skill to be developed in the workplace.  A communication model based on True Colors will be utilized to enhance understanding of the various styles and aspects of interpersonal and organizational communication – with an emphasis on how a supervisor might work with diverse employees to facilitate more effective relationships and organizational potential.  The webinar will also include ways a supervisor can determine what motivates employees so that adjustments in communication strategies can be made to provide more meaningful and productive work relationships.


Performance Management

Thursday, May 25, 2017 (10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, EDT)

This module will focus on managing employee performance more effectively. Topic areas include performance management methodologies; how to analyze performance problems to determine their root causes; a review of how to work with poor performers and the importance of feedback and coaching. Discussion will also explore steps for appropriate and efficient delegation strategies –  to improve overall organization performance and productivity.
