Webinar Topics

Strategizing for Uncertainty through Organizational Finances 
Presenter: Dr. Ali Dadpay

Every manager uses financial data and concepts to measure business performance as a foundation for decision making. This becomes more important during a time of crisis and uncertainty. This webinar will review financial concepts across different industries and how executives use them to formulate strategies. This will provide the participants with essential knowledge that will increase their confidence and ability to participate and to contribute to their organization's internal financial decision making. 

Having the Hard Conversations
Presenter: Dr. Rich Miller

In today’s world, we cannot ignore those that are different from us. However, building the bridges requires us to have hard conversations with people that may not be willing to or they will use personal attacks to avoid having them. In this webinar, you will learn how to begin these conversations, how to engage those that are not receptive to you, and dealing with personal attacks.

Coaching your Teams to High Performance through Tough Times
Presenter: Dr. Jude Olson

Are your virtual or co-located team members losing focus?  Is motivation on a plateau?  Are your team leaders struggling with priorities in the midst of change?

Most companies are counting on their high-performing teams to keep producing results and innovation to stay competitive--especially during these uncertain times. For managers and team leads, it takes a balance of caring for your team along with getting the work done. 

Topics: 

  • Coach your teams to renew their purpose and expand stakeholder value
  • Build resilience by leveraging team relationships and empathy
  • Focus your teams to keep them on track in times of ambiguity--while working virtually or returning to the workplace

 Leading with Resilience Through Difficult Times
Presenter: Dr. Laura Munoz
