The 6 Global `Life Languages`
Presented by Megan Johnson, Professor and Consultant of Communication, JMJ Communication Group

Work and communicate better with your colleagues, your team, your subordinates, your superiors in your own office as well as with colleagues or customers in other countries. Better manage conflict, improve productivity, work satisfaction, employee morale, and diversity inclusion as well as overall professional relationships.

Learning objectives include:

1. Understand your own preferences in 2 key life areas and what implications this has on your needs, desires and actions.
2. Realize how your preferences may conflict with people who have different preferences.
3. Understand the benefit of diversity and diverse preferences, beliefs and values.

I will help you become more aware of your personal preferences and beliefs/values in 2 key areas that will help you better understand your own needs and behavior as well as those you work with, live with and socialize with. It's part of 6 dimensions from a tool that I use in my coaching/training business. This Life Languages tool distinguishes cultural dimensions that describe the effects of a society's culture on the values of its members, and how these values relate to behavior. It has become an internationally recognized standard for understanding cultural differences and is widely used in businesses around the world. These life languages are useful whether you work with people from other cultures or not. In this regard, every workplace is a diverse workforce and these 6 life languages help us better communicate and work with those with different beliefs and values than us. The 6 life languages explain 6 areas that different people handle differently: ways of coping with inequality, ways of coping with uncertainty, the relationship of the individual with her or his primary group, the implications of having been born as a girl or as a boy, connection of the past with the current and future actions/challenges, and finally, a measure of happiness and what you believe controls it.


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.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, June 25, $38 afterwards.*

Leading Virtual Teams: How to Manage a Workforce You Cannot See
Presented by Lisa Gamble, SVP, Global Delivery Operations Lee Hecht Harrison

Global Workplace Analytics' research finds that 50% of the US workforce holds a job that is compatible with at least partial telework and 20-25% of the workforce teleworks with some frequency. According to FlexJobs, over 270 companies in the US have gone 100% remote, up from 26 in 2014. These cohorts of 'invisible workers' will continue to rise. And often rising with it is anxiety around leading teams that you rarely see and that may be located in countries far away. According to a recent survey by AMA, 63.5% of respondents stated that managing virtual teams is a critical competency, yet only 36% believed their managers have mastered it. And while there may be a recognition of the clear benefits of this arrangement for both parties, a frequent theme often emerges from leaders...'How do I know they're working?'

To remain competitive, companies must be able to sustain high productivity and engagement from their remote workforce.  This demands that leaders learn to recognize and successfully navigate the unique challenges associated with leading in a virtual environment.  During this session we'll discuss these challenges and practical strategies for building trust, establishing and maintaining productive relationships, and ensuring effective communication and accountability.  We'll also discuss common business communication missteps and how to mitigate risk when managing a globally dispersed team.

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.

Lunch:

  • Members: $28 by end of business Monday, July 9, $38 afterwards.*
  • Future Members: $43 by end of business Monday, July 9, $53 afterwards.* (See below)**
  • MT|SHRM Students: $14 by end of business Monday, July 9, $19 afterwards.*
