Pre-Conference Workshops, Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019


As organizations grow they too often allow a layer of bureaucracy to trickle into their organization that inhibits their strongest resources; their people. It’s critical that employees are engaged at work. Nothing less than your Institution’s ability to develop long-term growth is at stake. An engaged workforce is your competitive advantage. It often establishes itself in an ethos that believes organizations grow from the outside in - it is a misguided and flawed model. Department success and customer satisfaction are a result of engaged people, and growth begins on the inside when individuals are engaged. The workshop will focus on developing a staff development and leadership succession plan. Having a strategy is a valuable tool to grow future leaders and to ensure continuous development within a shifting market. Success by succession planning is an investment that leaders are recognizing as an important strategy with long term benefits.
