Bridging the Gap in the Workplace – the Millennial’s are here

February Breakfast

Thursday, February 2


Labeled the “entitled” and “lazy” generation, today’s work environment will look very different twenty years from now, as Boomers begin leaving the workforce in droves over the next fifteen years. Companies will no longer have the option NOT to hire Millennials. They will be a necessity if your business or company is to survive. Millennials get a bad rap and yet they are the most educated, diverse, accepting, technological-rich generation of our life-time.

 This interactive presentation along with a slide deck, and practical knowledge, will provide understanding of the generational diversities and issues facing the work environment. We will discuss ways to “co-create” a culture in which Millennials will be drawn, so you stop wasting time and money training, only for them to up and leave anyway.

 Boomers and Gen Xr’s continue to seek ways to work with Millennials.  During this presentation, I will teach the neuro-science behind change along with different perspectives to survive the onslaught of Millennials entering the workplace.

 If we understand what makes each generation different and the why behind how we each came to be, it helps us to shape the future. Since change is inevitable, we will share the ideology of this new generation so Corporate America can embrace the change.

You will walk away knowing what is behind the millennials motivation (or lack thereof, as they are labeled) and the considerations needed to thrive with the incoming generation.  

Speaker:

Terri O’Donnell, PCC, CPCC received her training and certification through one of the founding pillars and most rigorous coaching organizations in the world, Coach Training Institute(CTI). Her credentialing is through the accrediting body of coaching schools and individuals, International Coach Federation(ICF).

 To the chagrin of those who knew Terri, she turned in the briefcase for the baby after having worked in Corporate America for almost 20 years in Sales and Marketing for a Telecommunications Company.

Six years ago, Terri recreated herself and became a coach initially seeking to be a voice for women only to learn that men also wanted coaching with her. She has come full circle coaching Professional Business Women who are trying to figure out why they were passed over for a promotion, should they leave their job because they aren’t getting along with their boss, how they can work remotely, what’s next or life after they’re re-organized or downsized to name just a few.

GVFHRA Career Management & HR Transition Group Meeting
Approaching Your Job Search Like a Salesperson
Speaker(s): William “Casey” Fehl

GVFHRA Career Management & Transition Group Meeting

“Approaching Your Job Search Like a Salesperson” presented by William “Casey” Fehl

In “A Salesperson’s Approach to Job Hunting”, Casey will point out in this stirring, thought-provoking and motivational presentation that if you were to take a sales book and cross out the word “selling” and replace it with “job hunting”, you would now have a job-hunting book.  Since 2009, Casey has worked and volunteered with numerous groups of individuals in job transition, and has learned that there are many similarities between professional sales and job hunting.

Attendees will learn, regardless of age, industry, professional experience, socio-economic backgrounds, or gender:

·        A proven system to track their progress and keep themselves accountable.

·        The most successful job hunting strategies, based on statistical evidence.

·        How to be better able to handle the inevitable rejection that comes with job hunting.

·        How to be able to bounce back stronger.

·        Leave this session feeling more confident about landing a great job in a shorter amount of time.

What to do with the HiPo of the YoPro when you’re an OldPro (Examining the communicative and assessment process of leadership training).

What to do with the HiPo of the YoPro when you’re an OldPro 
(Examining the communicative and assessment process of leadership training)
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 5:30 PM
Crowne Plaza, King of Prussia
 
The goal of the session will be to provide insight around assessing leadership potential. Leadership assessment and measurement are a vital tool for strategic team and broader organizational development. The appeal towards individuals with “winning” personalities does not necessarily mean that the skill sets for leadership are present. Are organizations just plugging holes in their talent need by over-estimating the potential of a person? Assessment as an art will be discussed. Contributing factors such as organizational structure, economics, generational differences (real or perceived), evaluative processes and talent alignment pathing will be discussed. Once it is determined there is high potential in an individual, how is that accessed? 

 Working through options for tapping into that talent and aligning it with the mission will be presented. The utilization of a case study will help to anchor these concepts and provide concrete assimilation.

Speaker:
John Baldino MSHRD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP founded Humareso to strategize with companies to develop plans to manage talent, recruit for skills gaps based on employee inventories, assess markets for growth, develop long-range succession plans and influence a culture of enthusiastic buy-in. Humareso provides outsourced human resource services, including its flagship HRO plan, which helps businesses save money, increase productivity and reduce legal risks by providing dedicated HR consulting for compliance, training, performance management, employee relations, workplace management, discipline and other important HR best practices.

Approved for 1.25 SHRM PDC's and HRCI Credits
Speaker(s): Kevin Ames

The Power of Appreciation 

April Breakfast 
April 6, 2016 at 7:30 AM
 
Our Power of Appreciation presentation is an unforgettable look at why appreciation matters and how to unlock its power to create great teams and cultures. It is an ideal way to launch or reinvigorate recognition programs and training. Our critically acclaimed speakers regularly win the highest praise for one reason: they know how to present proven strategies and tell stories in ways that leave people and organizations changed for the better. Leaders learn how appreciation helps to overcome the challenges of a constantly churning, ever-changing market. Then with a keen understanding of three essential ways to appreciate great work, they are empowered to incorporate best practices that inspire employees to engage. And when people engage with your culture, vision, and values, companies grow. 
Speaker: 
With a mission to instill in others a passion for personal and professional excellence, Kevin Ames is one of the highest ranked speakers at the Evanta Leadership Summits. He’s spoken to thousands of people and leadership groups at conferences and companies such as National Grid, Dow Chemical, Frito Lay, Bose, Miller Thompson, Pier 1, Kennedy Health, and more. An expert in the areas of workplace culture, engagement, great work, teambuilding, leadership, and personal development, his presentations have been called, “dynamic, insightful, clear, honest, and informative.”
