Proper Tone in Performance Management: How to be an Andy in a Barney World
Presented by Tim K. Garrett, Member, Bass Berry & Sims

Many front-line managers struggle with striking the proper balance between “rules” and “relationships”; some come off as too harsh and punitive, while others come across as too soft and not properly sharing expectations.  Either extreme creates workplace problems which impact compliance and create legal risk.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to use performance management in a positive way to motivate improvement;
  2. Avoiding the appearance of harassment or bullying and still holding employees to productivity and quality standards;
  3. Ensuring proper balance in performance management to ensure compliance with legal requirements and reduce legal risk.

Lunch:

Going from Average Joe to Sourcing Pro
Presented by Matthew LeBlanc, Talent Sourcing Manager, Microsoft

Sourcing is the new "science" in recruiting and can greatly transform how you find, engage, and ultimately hire talent. The ability to source (and land) external talent is becoming more important as organizations are finding tighter labor pools coupled with the need to bring new points of view and expertise from the market.
Going from an average Joe to a sourcing pro can mean the different between landing a transformative hire and being stuck with a requisition that just won't go away.

This discussion will focus on simple techniques that can be used in every database and search engine to bring back the talent that you need when you need it.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Using Boolean search logic to think creatively in how searches are run
  • Using open web search to find resumes and profiles
  • Free tools that can greatly help in finding qualified talent.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:15 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.

21st Century Leadership: Understanding The Psychology of Followership
Presented byDan Haile, Managing Principal, Haile Coaching & Leadership

Frequently today, organizations thrust successful managers into full-blown leadership roles without adequately preparing them for their new role, or even inquiring whether they really WANT to be a leader (and assuring them it's OK if they don't!)  Consequences of such capriciousness are often organizational ineffectiveness and unsatisfactory results, and worst case scenarios can result in losing/terminating strong mid-level managers who either aren't cut out for leadership or whom haven't been provided a reasonable foundational training in what constitutes effective 21st century leadership. 

Attendees will learn:

  • What absolutely, succinctly defines the key tactical behaviors essential to being an effective leader today.
  • The criticality of understanding the psychological motivators for those we would lead.
  • Understanding the vital nature and components of trust that are imperative to this leader/follower relationship.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12 noon.
Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, July 24, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $42 by end of business Monday, July 24, $56 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, July 24, $19 afterwards.*

*On-line registration will close by end of business 2 days prior to the event. Our ability to accommodate walk-in registrations will be based on space availability.
