How To Keep Your Head When Your Hair Is On Fire! An introduction to Emotional Intelligence.

Presented by: SkyeTeam — Chief Executive Officer, Morag Barrett

Have you ever been in a conversation that started to “heat up” and later you thought, “Why didn’t I do this?” or, “Why didn’t I say that?” When confronted with stressful situations, our inherent tendency is to do more of the same—only harder—and to react blindly. There is science behind our reactions, and better understanding that science allows us to leverage our emotions rather than stifle them. In this presentation, you’ll learn what drives our emotions and “fight or flight” response; the business impact of toxic behaviors and inappropriate reactions in the workplace; and strategies for remaining at your best, even in the worst of circumstances.

Recruit Like a Marketer, Hire Like a Boss

Presented by: Red Branch Media — CEO & Founder, Maren Hogan

Recruiting tactics. Increasing conversions. Optimizing spend. If you’re a recruiter, these phrases probably sound familiar. Not too long ago, they were more familiar to marketers. Today, recruiters are increasingly encouraged to use marketing in their own strategies. But that shift comes with its own set of challenges. In this presentation, Maren Hogan, CEO and founder of Red Branch Media, will discuss how recruiters can overcome those challenges and draw upon proven marketing strategies to recruit top talent.

Employee Engagement Check-In: An Interactive Session

Presented by: Ultimate Software — Senior Facilitator, Leadership Development, Regent Cornell

Although it takes many forms, employee engagement is one of the most impactful aspects of running a successful—or unsuccessful—business. Thus, it’s important for organizations of all sizes and industries to routinely “check-in” on employee engagement levels, through informal conversations among managers and direct reports, company wide employee surveys, department town halls, and more. This interactive session includes two components. First, we’ll check in on the status of employee engagement in attendees’ organizations and discuss current scenarios. Then, we’ll break off into smaller groups to brainstorm effective ways of addressing common engagement challenges in the workplace. Workshop attendees will leave with actionable insights for improving engagement and making a positive overall impact at their organizations.

2:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
