    Tools for Self-Management & Accountability in the Workplace

    Self-management is a strength-based approach to high performance and accountability. When individuals can leverage what they do well, they will increase their effectiveness and satisfaction. As a result, work becomes more enjoyable and people are more engaged with their work, their teammates and their organization.

    Organizations that build this strengths-based leadership capacity lead to healthy growth. And the culture will attract and support high performers who are accountable and effective.

    We learn, not by being told, but by experiencing the consequences of our actions. In this workshop the participants will learn how the principles and tools of self-management and accountability can build engagement and teamwork throughout the organization. The participants will experience interactive exercises in the building and use of two self-management tools, the performance agreement and the priority feedback system.

    The Facilitator:

    Dr. Michael Colburn has built his career on performance improvement at the organization, team and individual levels for a broad range of clients in the private and public sectors for more than 30 years. He recently retired as an Associate Professor of Management at Ashland University where he taught Organization Development, Operations Management, Strategic Management and Self-Management & Accountability. Michael has authored numerous papers in academic, professional and trade publications.

    His first book, Own Your Job: Five Tools for Self-management and Accountability in the Workplace will help you think more like an entrepreneur and teach you self-management skills to increase your performance and influence. Copies will be available at the event for $25

    IDEA/EXPERIENCE EXCHANGE:  All Things Mentoring!  

    Are you a Mentor?  A Mentee?  Have you implemented traditional or nontraditional mentoring programs or processes?  Are you thinking about it and want to learn more?  We all know there is a huge benefit from all angles to engage in Mentoring relationships yet you may not know how to go about establishing those opportunities in your organization or for yourself. 

    Join us for a rich and informative facilitated dialogue about “All Things Mentoring”.  We are going to explore both the traditional and non-traditional aspects of mentoring.  Come with your questions, best practices, lessons learned and cool ideas around being a mentor or being mentored.   Among numerous topics to explore, our two skilled Facilitators Susan Moss and Patt Hardie will lead us in discussions around:

    • Quick review of traditional mentoring programs

    • Creative solutions to common challenges like budget, matching, or not enough mentors

    • Options when your company doesn't offer a formal mentoring program

    This will be an open and engaging way to share your experiences and ideas, gain new insights, collaborate with like-minded professionals and perhaps take away a few great resources.
