PEACOCKS AND PENGUINS: Taking a New Look at Diversity

BJ Gallagher Hateley has a unique approach to developing employees and building flexible, innovative organizations -- an approach that includes humor, creativity, and metaphor, combined with practical, common sense solutions to what may seem like "dilemmas of diversity." Her experience in her consulting work has helped her clients maximize the productivity of diverse employees, increase innovation and new ideas, enhance team effectiveness, and build customer loyalty. This lively, interactive session will provide participants with the opportunity to assess their own organization's management practices, and to explore ways to tap into the creativity of employee diversity and leverage it as an organizational asset.

THE BLAME GAME: Building a Culture of Personal Accountability in Your Organization

Widespread "victim" thinking, whining, finger-pointing, helplessness, and blaming are behaviors that plague many organizations today. Employees and management alike often seem caught up in a vicious cycle of "The Blame Game." This stimulating, interactive session addresses the personal and organizational costs of "victim" thinking and behavior, and demonstrates that the solution is a dynamic shift to personal accountability. Participants will learn how to help both individuals and organizations transform blaming into problem-solving, "victim" thinking into "ownership" thinking, and "poor me" into "personal accountability", resulting in empowered, proactive, productive people.

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR BOSS AND OTHER IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE

Most people don't realize that management is a two-way street -- the same techniques that we use to "manage down" can be used to "manage up." People are people, whether they are bosses or employees, co-workers, friends or family members -- the same principles apply to managing our relationships with them. This entertaining presentation will include specific tips on motivation, communication, influence skills, and how to get other people to do what you want -- both in your professional life and your personal life.
