It's a Living - Employee Engagement
Alicia Elson and Jon Pearson with QLI
Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 7:30-9:00 am
UNO Mammel Hall, Room 117, 6708 Pine Street
It's remarkable in our society today how often employees settle for mediocrity in the one pursuit in which they are going to spend the bulk of their waking hours - their job! Join us for an upbeat and lively discussion on how to go from a "Thank God it's Friday!" to an "I'm so glad it's Monday!" attitude.
During this session you will learn components and strategies necessary to instill employee pride and loyalty. You will understand that vibrant, dynamic and invested employees are directly linked to YOUR personal success as well as the company's prosperity. You won't want to miss this creative session with other business leaders discussing ways to attract, grow, and retain phenomenal employees...and, if you don't join, you will miss the donuts, too!

Everyday vs. Formal Coaching for OD Practitioners
Sally Waters, MA SPHR CPCC
June 26, 2013
UNO Mammel Hall, Room 117, 6708 Pine Street
OD practitioners, both internal and external, use coaching as a methodology all the time--with individual clients, groups, teams. Our skill set includes the communication, relational and emotional awareness and capacities to be effective in supporting others to reach their goals through a structured or semi-structured process. So what's the difference between this everyday thing we do (Everyday Coaching or EC) and the more formal coaching that you can get certified in and make a living doing exclusively (Formal Coaching or FC)?
Join us for a highly interactive session where we name those differences, identify and practice some basic FC tools you can apply to EC, and explore when EC should really move into FC and how the OD practitioner can reach out for resources to support that shift.
We'll have the richest learning event if our audience includes experienced (and certified) coaches as well as those brand new to the concept of formal coaching. The relationships in the room will be our most profound teaching source. So please come even if you could be leading this session...because you will be!
Sally is an executive coach and OD consultant helping individuals, partners, groups, and organizations build strong and enduring connections with self, purpose, and others. Previously, she founded and directed Organizational Development Services at University of California, Davis. For three decades she has worked as internal and external OD consultant, team and leader coach, meeting and retreat facilitator, trainer, and instructional designer. She has also worked as a workplace, family, special education, and community mediator in a variety of settings.
