Forty-three percent of HR professionals reported current incidences of workplace romance at their organizations. Workplace romance exists when two members of the same organization develop a relationship with mutual attraction. This romance may damage morale and productivity in the workplace. The percentage of organizations with written workplace romance policies has doubled since 2005.

During this 60-minute informative Webinar led by Susannah Chance & Fran Lefavour of LeddyHR, you will learn how to deal with romantic relationships in the workplace.

Participants will learn:

Organizational Assessment

Presented by: Third Sector New England

Do you wish you had a long-term road map for your organization? Thorough organizational assessment asks that a nonprofit’s staff, board and key stakeholders come together to tell their collective story and create a shared picture of the group’s current reality. This workshop will introduce you to a variety of potential tools to examine your organization’s services, funding, governance, management and overall mission effectiveness. You will leave this workshop with a strategy for conducting your own assessment, which will help your organization understand how to move forward strategically by:

  • Providing a shared understanding of organizational strengths and challenges among key stakeholders
  • Developing common language to discuss the organizational system
  • Identifying root causes, rather than just symptoms
  • Building a solid basis for identifying effective action steps

Presented by Leddy Group

Presented by: Leddy Group

Why:

Developing and Utilizing Metrics to Manage Your Sales Team (Scott Shimer)

In a recent study, the Sales Education Foundation and Vantage Point Performance identified 306 different metrics that sales leaders used in their efforts to manage their business. These metrics fell into three broad categories: sales activities (things like the number of accounts assigned per rep, the number of calls made per rep, and percentage of account plans completed), sales objectives (like the number of new customers acquired, the percentage share of customers’ wallet, and percentage of customers retained) and the subsequent business results (revenue growth, gross profit, customer satisfaction).

During this 60-minute, informative Webinar Scott Shimer, Vice President for Leddy Group, will provide an overview of an employer's role in setting measurable objectives for employees in a sales capacity.

Participants will learn:

• write measurable objectives for their sales force
• share objectives with employees to secure their buy-in
• develop metrics for the sales force that can be tracked, even for remote team members
• review performance on a daily, weekly or monthly basis
• respond to an employee not hitting his/her metrics

How to Prepare For and Have This Difficult Conversation

Presented by Leddy Group

Presented by: Leddy Group

Why:

Uncovering the Truth – How to Prepare For and Have This Difficult Conversation (Steve Wood)

Managers confess it is often difficult to have conversations about sensitive subjects with employees. Whether you need to tell someone you disagree with their approach or are upset by their behavior, it's all too easy to put it off in hopes of finding the "perfect time." Chances are, that time will never come. The consequence of not having that uncomfortable conversation is costly. A CPP Inc. study of workplace conflict reveals that employees in the U.S. spend roughly 2.8 hours per week dealing with conflict. Stop procrastinating and make the conversation happen.

During this 60-minute, informative Webinar Steve Wood, President, CEO and CFO of Leddy Group and Work Opportunities Unlimited and author of the popular blog Steve on Leadership, will show participants how to prepare for and have difficult conversations with employees who have likely been untruthful or behaved poorly. He will also use two or three actual cases as a foundation for learning.

Participants will learn:

• to effectively plan for the discussion including the development of a goal
• to develop effective questions
• to sequence the questions so as to achieve the goal
• to lead and take control of the conversation
• to develop effective follow-up steps
