August 15, 2024  (2-hour program) Turning Your Brand Story Into A Hiring Strategy

Before spending a dollar on promoting a job, recruiting teams should know whose attention they want to capture. Hiring teams must understand what matters most to quality candidates. Instead, many simply post jobs on more websites in hopes of filling niche roles with any warm body rather than the right person.

Best-in-class candidates aren’t settling for templates and worn-out tactics. They want to know why they should work for you. If you’re not expressing it in a language that attracts the right person, it’s costing the company money. This presentation can help. People who have attended this session with hiring expert Katrina Kibben have said it helped them learn simple steps to stand out with recruitment marketing that uses real stories.

What’s In It For You

  • Steps for translating your stories into a unique recruiting strategy,
  • An introduction to recruiting personas and how they work,
  • 4 things you can do to increase applications without an employer brand budget,
  • And more!

Attendees will leave this session with actionable insights that help companies of all sizes stand out.

September 11, 2024 (2-hour program) Unlocking Employee Potential through Powerful Conversations 

Managers are expected to motivate, train and develop their direct reports. To do so, managers need tools to help them draw boundaries and sustain empathy while also holding employees accountable. Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a powerful communication technique that helps do just that. Often utilized by coaches, social workers, therapists and healthcare practitioners, MI is designed to enhance effectiveness in eliciting positive behavior change by empowering and engaging the individual. This presentation will introduce MI’s principles and key skills and provide attendees with a safe learning environment to practice its application to real-world business scenarios.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills offers several benefits:

  • Enhanced Communication: MI improves communication between managers and employees by fostering a collaborative, non-confrontational atmosphere. This leads to more open and honest discussions.
  • Empowerment: MI empowers employees to explore their own motivations for change, rather than being told what to do. This autonomy increases their commitment to making positive changes.
  • Increased Engagement: By using MI techniques, managers can effectively engage employees in conversations about change initiatives or performance improvements, leading to greater buy-in and participation.
