Reserve your seat now for Wright State University’s ninth annual Organizational Effectiveness Lecture Series. This year’s topic is “How to Engage Employees: S.O.A.R.,Positive Culture & The Power of Conversations”. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 31, at Wright State University Nutter Center, Berry Room,3640 Colonel Glenn Hwy. 7:30-8:15 a.m.: Registration, hot breakfast and networking; 8:15 a.m. to 12 noon: Presentations. Early Bird Cost: $45; After Feb. 1: $50; Students: $15. One of the biggest challenges facing organizations is the question of how to fully engage employees. Leaders recognize the benefits of an engaged workforce, such as lower turnover, greater productivity, higher quality, but they often lack the knowledge about how to get there. Therefore, Dr. Jackie Stavros, the originator of the S.O.A.R. (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results) model of strategic planning, an alternative to SWOT, will introduce us to positive practices that energize employees, create resilience, build commitment, and more during this event. In addition, Scott McGohan will discuss insights from his new book, “Culture is an Inside Job.” He’ll share several practical tips about building a culture of engagement. This program has been submitted for recertification credit by the HR CertificationInstitute (HRCI). For more information and to register, visit www.wright.edu/oels.
