Why ‘Old School’ Leadership doesn’t cut it any more… 5 Emerging Qualities You MUST have to Achieve Extraordinary Results.

Everyone has seen the classic lists of what it takes to be a successful leader. Skills such as: Confidence, knowledge of the industry, honesty and integrity, good communication skills, etc. are all very important and have been a focus for a long time.

But here’s the problem… Times are changing rapidly and therefore our future leaders need to be prepared! Leaders need some additional skills to thrive in this new VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous).

In this 45-minute webinar, we’ll discuss the 5 Emerging Leadership Qualities You MUST HAVE to Drive Results. We’ll arm YOU with the information you need to:

  • Focus on yourself first, using keen self-awareness as a powerful tool to engage and motivate others.
  • Break the mental “status quo” and prioritize curiosity and learning
  • Create and communicate a clear and compelling vision for the future, providing your team with a powerful “why” – rather than just the “how.”

New Ways to Recruit and Hire The Millennial Generation

Recruiting and selecting of the millennial generation must be different than it has been in the past. It’s time to evaluate how you currently recruit and hire employees and identify what might need to change in order to keep pace and be in a position to win tomorrow’s war for Millennial Talent.

Within 10 years 80M of the workforce will come from the Millennial generation.  This generation has totally different expectations when it comes to the world of work and the application process.  They are used to using the internet for everything and interact in certain ways.  To the extent that a company can mirror those interactions in the application process the company will win the war for that talent.

In this 45-minute session participants will walk away with the following:

  • An understanding of what Millennials want in an application process
  • Why a paradigm shift is needed in most company’s application processes
  • How to recruit Millennials like they want to be recruited
  • How to use video the correct way in the recruiting process

Assessing at the Top: Unique Challenges and Rewards of using 360 Feedback with Top Executives

Few assessment experiences are more impactful than participating in a 360-degree feedback process.  A well-constructed survey and a carefully managed process can lead to career-changing insights and a strong personal motivation to improve. However, 360 feedback is not a “one-size-fits-all” process.  This is especially true when comparing supervisory and managerial-level 360s to that of your top Executives.

In this 45-minute session, Dr. Cabot Jaffee will explore the unique aspects of conducting Executive 360s, including:

  • The case for assessing at the top
  • The challenge of collecting candid, honest feedback
  • Navigating the “limited observation” reality
  • The best approach for delivering constructive feedback to seasoned leaders
  • What constitutes successful Executive development, and how does that differ from Managers
  • The BIG PAYOFF to getting this right!

BONUS:  All attendees will receive AlignMark’s 7-Step 360 Implementation Checklist – a valuable roadmap to keep you on track as you manage your next 360 process!

Video-based Job Applications – A True Paradigm Shift in Hiring

Today almost 100% of companies still use a text-based application.  Companies need to change this practice if they are going to compete for candidates in the future, especially if the candidates are from the millennial generation.  While the process of posting a job and collecting application data is fine, the way it’s collected needs to change.  Today a company has options.

Video-based job applications exist which create an interactive, video-based, experience for candidates that does more than just collect data.  As applicants interact with the System they are getting information from the company and at the same time providing the company information on him/her.  The company is able to provide their employee value proposition and actively recruit the candidate from the first second the candidate shows interest in a job.

In this 45-minute session participants will walk away with the following:

  • An understanding of the difference between a video interview and a video job application.
  • Pros and cons of using video techniques in the recruiting process (and yes there are cons)
  • Why a paradigm shift is needed in most company’s application processes
  • 5 Key benefits to using a video-based job application

Why Most Companies Fail to Fully Leverage 360 Surveys, and How You Can Do it the RIGHT WAY!

Although the pitfalls are well documented, organizations large and small continue to leave huge opportunity on the table when it comes to 360-degree feedback.  It’s not for lack of effort or commitment to the process, rather it almost always stems from lack of knowledge, structure, and accountability.

In this session, Dr Cabot Jaffee will clearly outline the difference between 360-feedback programs that produce lasting results and those that don’t (and why this is the case).  You’ll learn practical strategies to help you avoid the most common missteps and use the 360 process as an anchor for lasting, positive behavioral change.

If you’re considering conducting a 360-feedback process within the next year, you won’t want to miss this 45-minute online session!
