Description:The HR professional should play an integral role in solving the challenges facing colleges and universities today. Some experts theorize that the organizational model that has persisted for many decades in modern colleges and universities cannot be sustained given present challenges, some of which threaten an institution's very existence. Establishing a "culture of creativity" is a crucial first step in developing solutions to confront these threats. Using an interactive approach, this session will provide participants with an understanding of the foundations and strategies needed to create a culture of creativity on their campuses.

Description:Research and our own personal experiences tell us that managers have the single greatest impact on an employee’s effectiveness, motivation, engagement, discretionary effort and retention.

We identified four simple yet powerful actions that all employees need their managers and supervisors to do. This session will introduce these four simple actions, examine how they were developed and identify the reasons why they work so well.
