9:45am - 10:45am | Talent Management:  How to Make Your Metrics Matter | Speaker:  Cathy Missildine-Martin, Intellectual Capital Consulting
Whether the data about your company’s talent is stored in filing cabinets, spreadsheets or in an automated system, determining which talent metrics are most important to your business is not always straightforward. For the many who have taken the step of centralizing their talent management processes and information online, the task of accessing the data is much easier. But even with ready access to metrics, it’s important to determine which ones you and your business care about.  This session will help HR practitioners put talent management metrics in the context of those that will help you drive business decision making and organizational success.

10:45am - 11:00pm | Refreshment Break

11:00am - 12:00pm | Trilogies of Legacy Leaderships:  Moving from 3Ps to 3Cs | Speaker:  Shane Yount, Competitive Solutions, Inc.
Employees today are desperate for the following cultural outcomes:  clarity, consistency, and connectivity.  These 3Cs do not magically happen; they require habit, discipline, and structure.  They demand leaders to examine their leadership styles to see if they are operating according to the 3Ps: proximity, persuasion, and position in order to drive performance.  Participants will follow an intensive format of development for future systems and processes that will enable leaders to establish and sustain a lasting legacy for their organization.  This session will prepare leaders with both the systems and processes to return to their organizations with the tools needed to redefine their lasting leadership legacy.
