WiM Virtual Learning Series: Customer Perspective @ WEBINAR
Nov 4 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Customer Perspective

Presented by Dr. Alan Zimmerman

Customers are the lifeblood of companies. It helps to take an expanded view of customers – employees, vendors, supply chain partners, and of course, end customers. The quickest way to irrelevancy is to lose track of customers’ needs. This virtual event will impart key listening and collaborating skills such as active listening, open-ended questions, empathy and more.

WiM Virtual Learning Series: Accountability & Conflict Management @ WEBINAR
Dec 9 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Accountability & Conflict Management

Presented by Linda Galindo

Leaders get work done through and with others, which means there is always opportunity for miscommunication and conflict. Accountable people make clear agreements with those involved, in writing. Accountable people build a culture of trust by honoring the agreements they have entered. Only then can you hold others accountable. A key trigger of conflict is miscommunication – and operating in an accountable fashion is a great way to reduce and manage conflict. In this virtual event, participants will learn simple processes for building accountability within themselves and their teams, and how to manage conflict as it relates to work tasks.

WiM Virtual Learning Series: Teamwork – Diversity & Inclusion @ WEBINAR
Mar 24 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Teamwork – Diversity & Inclusion

Presented by Susan Hileman

People are unique. We each come from different backgrounds, generations and cultures, as well as having different ethnicities, personalities, beliefs and upbringings. Diverse and inclusive organizations perform better than homogenous ones – but only when each person feels able to bring their authentic self to work each day. In this virtual event, participants will learn tactics to build and engage strong teams that leverage each individuals’ strengths, as well as techniques for identifying those with strengths that will make their team more successful.
