Supervisor 101: What supervisors really need to monitor & coach performance
Presented by Lisa Rueth, CEO of Cultivate Leadership a Leadership Consulting Firm Dedicated to Leadership Science, OD Consultant and Executive Coaching.

Most contact centers promote their top performers; some sink and some swim under the pressure, causing huge losses in time and energy for everyone. This session covers the basics that every people manager should have if they are expected to coach performance and manage and motivate a team while pleasing customers and superiors. Participants will learn the basic "7 critical steps" managers must know how to pass employees through and the “7 core conversations” they use to manage with. The delicate balance managers must maintain to be effective conduits of the organization's goals and constant coaches for those doing the work, requires conscious competency in the most important supervisory skills… yet most organizations do not have a formal manager training program that standardizes and teaches these skills.

True Accountability: What Leadership must do to create it.
Presented by Lisa Rueth, CEO of Cultivate Leadership a Leadership Consulting Firm Dedicated to Leadership Science, OD Consultant and Executive Coaching.

If we had a dollar for every conversation we’ve had about instilling more accountability and high performance, we would all be rich. Contrary to popular-belief, accountability is a result of many management efforts, not the problem or solution to be worked on. In this session, Leadership Consultant Lisa Rueth will use real client stories to break down accountability into the six dimensions of accountability: expectations, culture, management structure, development, fact checking and feedback. Each dimension requires different skills from your people managers, this session will not only cover what they need to do, but also what they need to know to create the fantastic result of an accountability culture. Designed as a very interactive mini-workshop, you will learn the Accountability Culture Model and have time to work with others who are trying various methods to achieve better follow-through and results!

Learning objectives:

  • Unpack accountability. Learn what makes it work and where it starts!
  • Learn what your front-line managers must know and do to create it
  • Discuss the role of Sr. Management in creating accountability cultures thatchange the context of the word accountability from “discipline” to “ownership”

Communicating up, down and in-between
Presented by Lisa Rueth, CEO of Cultivate Leadership a Leadership Consulting Firm Dedicated to Leadership Science, OD Consultant and Executive Coaching.

As a Leadership and Organizational Development Consultant, Lisa Rueth has many examples of communication being at the heart of most of our most expensive business challenges: customer and employee dissatisfaction, change management, performance problems and damaged cultures. In this session Lisa will share three case-studies of turn-arounds where communication was both the problem and the answer. However, with so many layers of communication up, down and in-between, in a global marketplace where distance, time zones, language, overuse of email and technology designed to “streamline” communication, there are many types of communication saboteurs. If you are wondering how to get your management team into a consistent, tight feedback loop while providing upper management with what they need to know from the front lines and employees and customers with consistent messaging from the top… there are three important lessons you won’t want to miss!

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss the types of communication and who “owns” each level
  • Hear about three communication projects where the management responsibility was simple, but not easy (after the fact!)
  • Understand the top-down/bottom-up model and the management competencies required to manage it
