  • Session 2: Getting More From Your People

with Erin Werde, President at The Instinct Advantage (1:00 to 2:00pm Prairie Rose Ballroom)

Business owners and managers struggle with putting the right person in the right seat. While an employee may have the experience, motivation, smarts – it does not mean that they have the instinct to perform a in certain position. Employers run into “people challenges” for many reasons – but one of the key reasons is overlooking employee instinct. This is a significant oversight because it can actively bring down the team; while understanding this information can unleash true team synergy (making the whole greater than the sum of the parts).

Attend this session to learn about the following:

  1. Instinct (and – whether or not you acknowledge it – it is present on your team!)
  2. When to use certain talents on your team
  3. Implications of instinct in hiring
