Webinar Opportunity - Speaker Daniel Juday

Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM

WEBINAR: Advancement Culture: Creating a Space Where Everyone Gets to Get Better
Join us on Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 12:15pm - 1:15pm (ET) for a webinar with speaker Daniel Juday.

This program will be submitted for 1.0 for both SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDC) and recertification credits from HRCI.

Webinar Description:
Everyone seems to be talking about culture, but almost everyone is talking about the “what,” not the “how.” It’s one thing to know that foosball tables and beer on tap won’t fix organizational dysfunction, but it’s another to explore what might. We’ll use this interactive session to start exploring some markers of advancement culture (one if which everyone gets to get better), built off a model of enrollment and engagement. We’ll discuss together what our current culture feels like, and explore what changes need to occur to move teammates from disengaged and disenfranchised to invested, engaged brand ambassadors.
