Everyday Leaders: Leadercast

Our jobs ask much of us. And so do our lives. Employees, families, our boss. We have every reason to focus on our own success. And yet, leadership calls us to more. Leadership is beyond the confines of our daily tasks. Beyond the borders of our roles and responsibilities. Leadership asks us to look beyond the everyday and consider the larger community around us - our employees, colleagues, neighbors and cities. We are asked to look not only inward, but also outward. Beyond ourselves. Join us at Chick-fil-A Leadercast as we explore together what leadership looks like Beyond You. Get ready for an unforgettable day of inspiration, learning, networking and more.

HR Matters: Four Crucial Questions New Employees Ask Themselves After Their First Day On The Job

You invested a lot of time, energy and money bringing on your new employee. They show up on that first day ready for your orientation, and you want to get them up and running as quickly as possible to maximize your ROI. After all, you need to prove to yourself and your team that you made a great hire. As the day draws to an end, you begin to reflect on how things went on day one. It's important to realize that the employee, too, is reflecting. There are four common questions in their mind that will determine whether they will be with you for the long haul or just a quick stopover on the way to their next opportunity. Come learn what those questions are and how you can set yourself - and your organization - up to answer them in a way that allows you to keep your top new hires for years to come!

HR Matters: Helping Employees Shift from Staff to Supervisor

It happens in workplaces all across America - when a supervisor leaves, organizations take the most productive team member and transition them into the leadership role. This strategy creates all kinds of issues. It's incredibly difficult for the team member to efficiently make the shift to supervisor without coming across as a brown-noser, know-it-all or deer in headlights. And it's equally challenging for the team to adjust to the new leadership style and expectations. This session will help you equip your new supervisors with the skill sets they need to assume that all-important first supervisory role with greater confidence and success. Registration Fee $15
