What Beth Terry Talks About:
The Successful Leader: Creating a More Resilient Workforce
One of our greatest challenges going forward in this new economy will be retention of our good people, and utilization of their skills to get our organizations back on track. Resilience (or bounce-back-ability) can be fostered with good strong leadership and the proper tools. Our employees are reeling with the recent economic situation: even if their job is secure, their families' lives may not be. Research has shown Seven Areas where Resilience can be encouraged and taught. This course provides solid take-aways and practical tools to re-engage your teams and empower their bounce-back-ability. Get them away from the water cooler and back to productive work.
Creating Accountability in Your Teams
The economic situation has the public seeking a higher level of Accountability from their organizations. This course gives leaders tools to create greater buy-in and productivity from their teams. From creating an understanding of position benchmarks and standards, to communicating expectations and engaging employees in problem solving, this program gets to the heart of the matter. Presented in an interactive fashion with exercises, case studies, and practical tools, the attendees will leave the program with solid tips and techniques to improve Accountability at all levels.
Getting Out of Overwhelm - Digital and Otherwise
The Information Revolution was supposed to make our lives easier. It just made everything more complex. We get into overwhelm just opening our email every morning.

Explore some new ways to negotiate the waters of change successfully. Learn to stay ahead of the game and not only survive, but thrive in this rapidly changing world! Walk out of this session renewed, hopeful and better able to deal with the changes that life will inevitably throw your way.
