Improving Human Performance - Randy Anderson, CSP Professional Trainer
Do the Managers and supervisors in your organization utilize a "one size fits all situation" approach to leadership? While it is important for a person's work to be a genuine extension of who they are, it is equally important that leaders realize the necessity of acclimating to the specific circumstances and variables which they will inevitably experience. This session will equip people in a position of authority with a systematic approach to determine the best leadership style in any given situation in order to improve human performance.
Employee Complaints and Investigations - Jami Terrell and Michelle Laidlaw, Employment Law Attorneys
Attorneys from Hunt Jepson and Griffin, LLP will lead us through the complex process for effectively handling employee complaint investigations. They will provide clear and practical guidance on when an investigation is necessary, options for hiring outside counsel to conduct an investigation, tools to plan and organize the investigation and skills needed to conduct the investigation and draft a report.
Critical Incident Response - Building an Effective Program - Dr. Bob May, Risk Management and Organizational Consultant
It seems that every time we turn on the news these days, a critical incident is occurring somewhere in the world. Recent acts of terrorism have caused many of us to become fearful of similar attacks hitting close to home. During this session, Dr. Bob May will dive into the heart of critical incident management; exploring pre-incident planning, incident response and business continuity.
