2016 Gulf Coast Symposium on HR Issues – Notes

THANK YOU!

The 2016 Gulf Coast Symposium on HR Issues is underway, and I appreciate your attending one of my sessions.  As promised, this is where you will find slides, bonus materials and more, for the two sessions delivered on May 12, 2016 in Houston, TX.


No Budget, No Problem!
How Every Leader Can Continue to Develop Talent in ANY Economic Environment (9:00 AM, May 12, 2016)

As promised, this is where you can find the complete slide deck from my presentation.  It will be posted within a few days of the conclusion of the 2016 Symposium (Hey, I didn’t want you to look ahead at all of the awesome graphics, hugely important research findings and info BEFORE you had a chance to experience the session….Thanks for understanding!)

Until then, here is a list of the NINE KEY ACTIONS OF CONNECTED LEADERS.  Watch this site for details of a forthcoming podcast episode of the Success Charger Podcast (it’s free) where we will dig even DEEPER into each Key Action. (If you’ll scroll up to the upper right-hand corner of this page and leave your email address, we’ll notify you when the next episode is ready to go!)

  1. Always Demonstrate Empathy
  2. Focus on Outcomes – Not Hours
  3. Share Accountability
  4. Become a N.I.N.J.A.
  5. PRO-active > RE-active Coaching
  6. Maximize Transparency
  7. Encourage Innovation
  8. Develop Presentation Skills
  9. Model a Learning Culture

TOURNAMENT OF CHANGE
How to Experience Championship Results in Turbulent Times (3:45PM, May 12, 2016)

If you were with us in the Unique Zone at the 2016 Symposium, you know that this wasn’t a PowerPoint presentation AT ALL.  In fact, it was less of a “breakout session” and more of an EXPERIENCE. I hope you  had as much fun learning at the session as I did putting it together for you!

We’ll do our best to share some of the key elements here and I’ll load up the “promo PowerPoint” that was sent into the Symposium organizers ahead of time, too. Again, we’ll get it up on the site soon.


PODCAST

In the meantime, if you like to hear great stories, I invite you to check out my free, weekly show “The Success Charger Podcast with Scott Cooksey” available to stream or download from SuccessChargerPodcast.com , iTunes, Stitcher Radio and other fine podcasting sites around the interwebs.

You might especially like Episode 38 where I interview John Verdone of DDI (Development Dimensions International) about why he believes EVERYONE should become a facilitator.

Why Everyone Should Become A Facilitator [Ep.38]

Even with many years of experience developing leaders, John Verdone (Manager, Global Facilitator Excellence at Development Dimensions International) was struggling to describe just exactly what he did for a living. That is, until one day, when he happened to catch a certain story unfolding on a PBS-like television show and it all clicked.

People with strong presentation skills are viewed as better leaders and perceived to possess many favorable attributes reaching far beyond the realm of presentations. – John Verdone

In this interview, John stops by the podcast visit with host Scott Cooksey and shares what a study he commissioned uncovered about what makes a great facilitator; when learning really begins for adults; and why everyone should incorporate facilitation skills to build deeper, more meaningful connections with co-workers, clients and in your life.

In the outtake of today’s episode, John and Scott compare recent photos they’d shared online.

Except for the fact that they both appear to prefer seats on the left side of the aircraft, any other resemblance is most certainly coincidental.
