PROGRAM INFORMATION

 

Listening to Outgroups 
Presenter: Ashley Lesko
 This program has been approved for 1.25 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1.25 SHRM recertification credits.

It’s never easy to work and/or lead people that are different. Try as they might, managers still struggle getting peers, employees and leaders to work as well as those that are similar to the manager.

This session will focus on groups that can be perceived as different for a number of ways and reasons, and will focus on how to tap into the unique contributions and resources of those “outgroup” members that can be wasted.  Having actual outgroup members can make very talented and competent people feel devalued.  These groups occur in all industries and in any context where a group is trying to reach a goal. 

 

Investigative Interviewing: What Researchers Have Found Works and Doesn’t Work
Presenter: Michael Johnson
 This program has been approved for 1.25 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1.25 SHRM recertification credits.

In the past 10 years, researchers have conducted studies demonstrating that some interviewing techniques commonly used by many HR professionals and other corporate investigators are ineffective.  At the same time, researchers have identified much better methods of interviewing witnesses that, while more commonly used in Europe, often are not known by investigators in the United States.  In this educational and entertaining session from a former U.S. Department of Justice attorney, you will learn which techniques are effective and which are not.  Among other things, you will:

  • Learn how to avoid common interviewing techniques whose validity has been questioned by researchers and some courts
  • Learn how to use scientifically validated interviewing techniques proven to obtain more information from witnesses
  • Learn advanced interviewing techniques that make it easier to differentiate between truth-tellers and those who are deceptive

 

Doomed to Succeed: Making Change Stick
Presenter: Nicole Aliev
 This program has been approved for 1 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1 SHRM recertification credits.

Change Management requires many attributes: positive thinking, planning, energy, and most importantly, the ability to allow for mistakes and to be able to rebound with persistence and initiative. It is inevitable that there will be breakdowns and blockers.  This knowledge allows you to get back in the driving seat when things go wrong.
During this session, we will cover how to plan to take the people in your organization through change; how to build a framework for good communication, and cover some of the tools, behavioral frameworks and approaches that can be used to mobilize the organization and make people accountable for making change stick.

 

Panel:  View from the Top: Succeeding in HR 
Moderator: Deb Cohen Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, President, Deb Cohen, LLC

Panelists:

Emily Bender, VP, Human Resources, Orbital ATK, Space Systems Group

Rich Cober, Ph.D., Executive VP and CHRO, MicroStrategy

Pam Singleton, Partner, Inc. CEO Project

Madelyne D’Angelo, JD, VP Human Resources, InquisIT, LLC

 

The Cartography of Innovation 
Presenter: Scott Wayne (Keynote Speaker)
 This program has been submitted to the HR Certification Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management for review.

How do you become a more effective innovator? Scott Wayne shows you how to take head-on the challenge of innovating in a stressful, overloaded, technology-centric era.

Making a case for transforming the way we live, Scott explores an experiential approach to generating ideas by living more diverse personal and corporate lives.

Sharing current examples and non examples of innovation in the marketplace today, Scott poses the question—what is innovation? Reframing our ability to identify new risks and opportunities as markets and technologies shift, innovation becomes more accessible.  Scott purports that by shifting our personal habits and attitudes and increasing our mindfulness, we allow our minds the space to make new connections, resulting in more new ideas. From the neurology of idea generation through the iterative execution process, Scott shares his unique perspective on the cartography of innovation.

 

Winning the War for Diverse Talent: Deploy Cutting-edge Selection & Assessment Techniques
Presenter: Dr. Kenneth Yusko
Authors: Dr. Kenneth Yusko & Linda Christie
 This program has been approved for 1.25 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1.25 SHRM recertification credits.

Two decades ago, The War for Talent was launched focusing on the competitive advantage of hiring the right people. As this strategy was embraced, changing demographics and cultural shifts made it difficult to identify strong human capital to hire. However, one solution could be the “relatively untapped, pool of talent lying in diversity” (Pollack & Dixon-Barrow, 2006). While common assessments often eliminate diversity, this presentation focuses on assessment strategies that yield a diverse talented workforce. Attendees will learn how to design a staffing assessment process that will yield a diverse talented workforce. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Design the architecture for a staffing assessment process that yields a diverse talented workforce.
  • Discern the types of assessments that validly predict performance while fairly measuring women and minorities.
  • Capture evidence and metrics that demonstrates the positive value of implementing a selection process that hires strong diverse talent for the organization. Integrate the assessment of diverse strong talent into the culture and values of the organization.
