Motivating the Motivated: Creating a Plan for Leading, Challenging, and Retaining High-Achievers

Presented by: Matt Olson, CCEP, Assistant Director for Event Operations, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Domain E: Human Resources, 1.5 Ces

We are surrounded by high-achievers. They keep our teams going, are filled with passion for their roles and the institution, continuously raise the performance expectations for themselves and other staff members… and can be difficult to lead, challenge, and retain. And yes, many of us would include ourselves in this high-achiever category. Through exploration of the traits of high achievers, digging into their motivating forces, and providing an open forum for idea-sharing, this session will assist attendees in creating their own plans for collaborating with their staff to accomplish outcomes that are mutually beneficial to the individual, team, and university.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover the traits of high achievers and the impact they have on themselves and the team
  • Develop an understanding of what managers can do to support the complex needs of high-achievers
  • Identify the key components of motivation and challenge needed to create a leadership plan

Is it Succession Planning or Managing Talent? – You Decide!

Presented by: Mark Coldren, Associate Vice President, Human Resources, University at Buffalo

Domain E: Human Resources, 1.5 Ces

Many higher education leaders have identified the need for effective “succession planning” for their organizations.  The term has a traditional approach that we often feel will provide the clarity we look for on our future organization chart.  The question: do you really need a formal succession planning structure to be successful?  Join in this interactive workshop to explore broad talent management strategies to build your pipeline and development plans for the future – and you decide if it checks the box in terms of the need for succession planning.  Key objectives for the session include:

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how to best utilize talent management strategies for recruitment and building organizational capabilities
  • Identify how best to use individual development plans to create roadmaps for building talent in your group
  • Learn to balance the recruitment of talent along with the promotion of potential for a strong future direction for your group

 

Strengthen Your Leadership Skills to Become an Influential Leader

Presented by: Barbara S. Romano, CCEP, Executive Director, Conference and Event Services, Cornell University

Domain E: Human Resources and Domain F: Stakeholder Management, 1.5 Ces


 Are you feeling frustrated, constantly challenged, and do not have the support of others to change?  This session will introduce you the importance of political awareness and how to navigate it. You will develop an awareness of essential skills involved in using positive politics and avoiding negative politics when persuading others. We will explore and gain an understanding of why that may be happening and how passion and vision are key factors that lead to getting people to agree to good ideas. You will leave with techniques to successfully navigate organizational politics and how to influence more effectively for positive outcomes to accomplish goals.

Learning Objectives:

 Identify how to best utilize talent management strategies for recruitment and building organizational capabilities 

  • Understand how passion and vision play into being influential
  • Develop ways to recognize and navigate through organizational politics
  • Learn methods and strategies for effectively influencing a team
