Session 4: How to Interview, Select, and Compensate Sales, BDC, and Management 

Monday December 12, 2022
1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific
45 Mins

We’ve all been on the prospect’s end of a job interview, and we’ve all heard the dreaded question: “Why do you want to work here?”  Today, however, your prospects want to ask you the same question, flipped: “Why should I want to work here?”  Conducting an interview is simultaneously a process of getting to know a candidate, their skills, experience, and – crucially – their potential for success, while also selling yourself as an employer. This webinar will help you to rethink the way you conduct your job interviews, leading to hiring better candidates.

Session 5: Supporting Gender Identity and Expression

Monday January 9, 2023
1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific
45 Mins

What are your pronouns? Depending upon several factors, this question may make you feel welcome and accepted, or it may make you uncomfortable.  Modern social psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologists agree that gender is a social construct which is distinct from biological sex.  In today’s working environment, it is important to recognize and understand the motivations and psychology behind  gender identity and expression, in order to make your business a more welcoming and inclusive environment for people of all genders.

Session 6: Cultural Awareness and Belonging

Monday February 13, 2023
1pm Eastern / 10am Pacific
45 Mins

What does it mean to build a culture of belonging? In the post-COVID world, workers seemed to realize that they had value outside of their own productivity, and began to seek out employers who valued their workers for more than simply their effect on the bottom line. Today’s workers are more focused than ever on where they belong – politically, socially, academically, and professionally.  A sense of belonging topped the list of the 2021 Global Human Capital Trends.  In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of developing a culture of belonging in a polarized world.

Session 3: Focus on the Multi-generational Workforce

The modern workforce is inherently multi-generational, and people from different generations approach work in different ways. Work habits, expectations, communication styles, and organizational skills will vary greatly from one generation to the next.  In this webinar, we will focus on harnessing the power of these differing perspectives to construct a workforce that is truly diverse, exceptionally cooperative, and extremely versatile.
