(PAST) Pre-conference Workshop #1: “Managing Under-Performers”

May 8, 2019: 8:30 am-4:00 pm

A reprise of the highly-rated December 2018 LDP Workshop! All early-career development programs have under-performers. Identfying them is sometimes easy, but not always. How do you work with assignment managers to get an accurate read on associate performance? Without careful attention, an under-performer’s negative impact can be magnified beyond his or her poor performance. Will the morale of other participants suffer? Will managers’ faith in the program erode? Will the program’s recruiting brand suffer? How can you best avoid these risks? From managing expectations, to “PIPs” to termination, this workshop will tackle how to give an underperforming associate a chance to succeed, and when it’s time to tactfully cut ties.

Mary Schneider – professional facilitator for Wronski Associates, former GE program manager, and highly-rated LDP Summit speaker – will lead this intensive session which will include content delivery and interactive group work.  Leave the workshop prepared to create a framework to guide your removal process that is true to your standards, consistent with your culture and will be effective for your program.

(Past) Pre-conference Workshop #2:

“Bringing Out the Best in Your People”

May 8, 2019: 8:30 am-4:00 pm

Have you ever watched in dismay as one of your top recruits repeatedly failed to impress? Or perhaps an associate and an assignment manager who seemed like a great match, inexplicably couldn’t get along? Professional success – and particularly leadership – is associated with high levels of emotional intelligence. A proper understanding of emotional intelligence will help you diagnose puzzling situations of conflict inside your program community, and help you accelerate the success of your associates. Join this interactive pre-conference workshop to improve your selection of program participants and assignment managers. Learn about how emotional intelligence influences your program’s success, and how you can screen for it.  Walk away with tools to help you uncover the emotional intelligence attributes important to your program.

The workshop will be facilitated by Emotional Intelligence expert, and executive coach Jessica Worny Janicki.
