Title of Presentation: Leading by Active Communication

Synopsis: It seems that we have always talked about “effective” communication as a key management tool but do we think it is also an important leadership skill? How well do you communicate with others? Are you an active listener? Do you think about your audience and method? Could better, more strategic communication improve the service level in your organization? Come to hear some answers to these questions and take a communication assessment.

This includes quality assurance with respect to knowledge and consistency of responses in key service areas supporting the Office of University Controller (OUC) and Procurement Service Center (PSC); staffing/hiring; metrics analysis for higher level managers; and, selection and maintenance of service tools.

Mentorship: How to Make Theory into Reality

Mentoring is a term that is often thrown around because the idea of it is great. But how often is that idea actually turned into practice? Mentorship is sharing your experience and knowledge with others in a nurturing environment. Being a mentor allows people to share their knowledge with others who are less experienced and help them reach their potential through guidance. A mentor sees the mentee through difficult times and encourages them to excel by setting a positive example. Being a mentor is a gracious gesture, but it’s also invaluable when it comes to the long-term survival of your organization.

When someone who is less experienced comes into your organization, it can be intimidating to the newest member of your team. Having a mentor will help that person make an easier transition into their new environment and kick-start their productivity.

Also, you may love your team the way it is, but things change and people come and go… so you want to be ready for those changes when they happen.

The list of benefits of having a mentorship program in your organization is far from short, so why don’t more businesses have them? Because the reasons for not having them might be just as long as the list of benefits, with the main one likely being that most people who run organizations don’t know how to get a mentorship program going. There could be a lack of willing participants both on the part of the mentor and mentee. It’s the; “What’s in it for me?” attitude. Mike can break down how beneficial mentors are and how to create a mentorship program that is effective.

In addition to knowing how to start a mentorship program, you need to be able to figure out who the best mentors and mentees would be. It’s not enough to want the program. In order for it to be a success you have to be able to pick out good mentors and people who want to learn. There might be people who don’t care to teach and those who don’t want the help or good mentors and mentees who simply don’t pair well together. Take the mystery and myth out of mentorship programs with Mike’s help and make them a reality.

In this workshop, Mike will discuss:

· Why you should have a mentorship program
· How to choose your mentors and mentees
· How to launch and sustain a successful mentorship program

Please join us for an engaging session on Metrics, and Myths about Metrics presented by Roy Atkinson

Happy New Year!

Everyone thinks they know the adage “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” It’s a myth! Many managers take this as dogma, and forget that many important things can’t be easily measured, but still have to be managed. We tend to measure what’s easy to measure. In this dynamic and interactive presentation, Roy Atkinson will explain why:
Why you need a metrics review
Why operational metrics aren’t enough
Why “Industry standard” metrics are a myth,
Why First Call Resolution is misunderstood and why you might not want to improve it
How metrics are interrelated
Why the most important benchmarks are your own
Don’t miss this opportunity.
