: Badly worded documentation and suspiciously timed administration is at a minimum problematic and at worst
Badly worded documentation and suspiciously timed administration is at a minimum problematic and at worst, hard to justify in employment claims. Inconsistent documentation, which may be just bad management practices, can cause employment claims from suspicious employees.
Considering that writing ill-suited documentation and administering inconsistent discipline is generally carried out by managers who practice a host of other bad management habits; taken together the factors create a situation akin to a compliance powder keg waiting to explode.

: Onboarding is defined as the first 30 to 90 days, where employees become a valuable member of the organization and begin reaching desired levels of performance.
Onboarding is defined as the first 30 to 90 days, where employees become a valuable member of the organization and begin reaching desired levels of performance. This is different that new hire training, which can often extend months beyond the initial onboarding process. Onboarding often includes a brief orientation which structure the first few days.
The webinar starts by showing how an effective onboarding process can be built around the three questions that all new employees have. The first question is, "can I do this job?" There are always doubts because this is a new situation with unique requirements. Setting up opportunities for new hires to experience the job first hand begins to build the required level of confidence needed.
The second question is, "do I want to do this job?" In the hiring process, new employees are sold on the great things the job has to offer. When reality sets in, some new employees find that the downsides make the job undesirable and quit. In onboarding, the key is to help new employees reach that decision quickly rather than spending months or training time on someone who will quit.
The third question is, "will I fit in?" This is a new work team. Onboarding needs to create activities to get to know the team and for the team to get to know the new employee. This can easily be accomplished in an effective onboarding process.
The second part of the webinar describes how to build onboarding activities for formal, informal, and social learning. These activities are used to build teamwork, assess performance, and teach key tasks. These activities are designed to answer the three key questions or onboarding. As a result, the onboarding program is concise, effective and highly interactive.
The third part of the webinar will discuss strategies for launching, measuring and maintaining the onboarding program.

: In a few strokes we can communicate with people just about anywhere; however, there's a downside
In a few strokes we can communicate with people just about anywhere; however, there's a downside: our skills at making connections with others are fading. As a result, co-workers tend to act without considering the effects of their actions on each other. This can have deleterious effects on employee morale which endangers careers and the organization’s success.
The stresses of COVID-19 and lack of connection between co-workers create a perfect storm for dreams and potential to go unrealized.
What if there were easy changes co-workers could make to create a more cooperative, friendlier environment?
The secret lies in practical behaviors that make others feel valued, understood, and heard - these build camaraderie, trust, and respect. The skills are sensible, intuitive and, with a little practice, can become habitual.
Participants will discover everyday behaviors that make others feel included, that they matter. These are critical to creating a team that exhibits respect, trust, and a sense of common purpose; co-workers who know they can rely on each other to celebrate their successes and help them plow through the tough times, personally and professionally.
This is particularly important in this COVID era in which staff members face unprecedented personal and professional stresses. Knowing they have allies at work lightens the load, allowing them to focus on their job. Quick, easy acts of consideration lead to a more supportive, collaborative workplace in which everyone feels valued, understood, and heard.
Instead of operating like individual workhorses, co-workers can move forward as collaborative, motivated team players.

: Transitioning from colleague to leader is a common rite of passage
Transitioning from colleague to leader is a common rite of passage, but it often presents new managers with a steep learning curve and an unfamiliar set of challenges that lead to imposter syndrome.
The new leader asks: Does my team trust me and my ability to lead them? Do they respect me? Will they listen to me or just ignore me? Will they think I'm full of myself if I ask them to take me seriously as their leader? Can we still be friends?
New leaders are often told to fake it until they make it. This is easier said than done, especially when the team you're managing consists of people who were formerly your colleagues. They know you. Some were rivals, some were friends, all of them will struggle to see you as their leader. So what are some best practices for new managers as they transition from colleague to leader?
In this session, we'll discuss several techniques that ask you to look inward to face your own insecurities and capability gaps, to engage in a dialog with your team at both a group and individual level, and to shift some of your behaviors in a way that quickly earn you credibility with your team.
