Turning Human Resources into Human Assets
Presented by David Butler, Founder and Principle, WTG Talent Solutions, LLC

Developing human resources is very similar to refining gold. You start with a raw material, put it through a process, add some things, take some things away, and finally select the mold to define the shape of the finished asset. The same process must be followed to truly develop the human resources in which we have already invested. The process doesn't need to be difficult; in fact, simple is better.

I take my audience through some areas in the changing workplace environment that commonly prevent us from refining our workforce and thus not being able to realize their full value.
The key areas are:

  • You can't refine them if you can't retain them
  • You can't refine them if they don't feel valued
  • You can't refine them if they don't know the way
  • You can't refine them if you don't create a place for them to do their best

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.

Breakfast:

  • Members: $18 by end of business Monday,  April 16, $28 afterwards.*

Target Turnover within Your Organization
Presented by Michael McKinley, President, McKinley Consulting

New data solutions are presenting opportunities for organizations to improve efficiencies, to do more with less, and to reduce lead time in operations cycles.  One way human resources groups can utilize data within their companies is to better predict turnover and to more quickly take action where possible.
 
Companies like Google and Facebook are allowing their employees to review their managers as a prediction mechanism for who might leave.  This gives managers feedback on how to be better leaders and allows those firms to be proactive in improving employee satisfaction, productivity, and turnover.
 

In this session, we will demonstrate a way to track, visualize, and take action on this data.  We will also show the no-code, low-code platform that makes it possible to create a fully customized solution to this and many other problems your organization may be facing.
 
The point of this session is to show how your teams can similarly build fully customized solutions, making better use of your data and solving real problems fast.  This will be done through using this manager survey application as a real-world example.
Learning outcomes include:

  • Better understand new Microsoft platforms PowerApps & Flow.  These no-code, low-code environments can help your teams create amazing solutions to problems more quickly.
  • See a specific use case that can help your organization predict and take action on unwanted turnover while better utilizing training resources.
  • Understand where to go next if you want to utilize these tools within your organization.


Schedule:
Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12 noon.

Developing a Mentoring Culture
Presented by Leigh Ann Roberts, Circle Center Consulting, LLC

Mentoring programs are quickly becoming the go-to tool for leaders who are seeking to develop a collaborative work culture, a well workforce and to address succession-planning issues. Research shows that these efforts, when implemented correctly, have a lasting positive impact not just on individuals but the organization as a whole. Despite the current statistics, some leaders and organizations are hesitant to develop mentoring opportunities within their organizations and communities. Why is that? The answers may surprise you.

If you find yourself curious about the topic of mentoring and how mentoring impacts individuals and organizations, or if you are interested in starting a mentoring program in your organization, please join us for this session. 

Leigh Ann will explore the topic of mentoring from its historical roots to present day trends.  Find out why people like Warren Buffet, Michael Jordan, even Mother Theresa benefitted from mentoring and developing coaching leadership tools and what we have to learn from their experiences.

Attendees will leave with the following learnings:

  • Understanding how the statistical data undeniably shows clear benefits to mentees, mentors and their supporting organizations. 
  • Learn more about why being part of a mentoring relationship or supporting a mentoring culture just makes good organizational and professional sense.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.

Breakfast:

  • Members: $18 by end of business Monday, April 30, $28 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $29 by end of business Monday, April 30, $39 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $9 by end of business Monday, April 30, $15 afterwards.*

 How to Design and Implement a Successful Strategic Management Development Initiative
Presented by Mack Munro, Founder/CEO, Boss Builders

Effective managers are key to any organization succeeding. If you are looking to bring a strategic edge to your organization, training and developing those managers is a key component. This presentation will show the importance of balancing performance management, strategic goals and initiatives, wants and needs of employees and managers, and tight budgets while working to implement a culture of learning. The outcome will be managers who are more effective and a workforce that is motivated, educated, and turns over infrequently.

In this session, participants will learn to proactively initiate (or adeptly respond to a request for) a “management training program.” Specifically, they will learn techniques to identify need, gather relevant data, leverage performance management, and communicate findings to senior management. They will also learn how to keep a program energized and permanently ingrain it into the organization’s culture, all the while communicating its success in the language of business.

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12:00 noon.
