Great leaders make relationships a priority. This workshop, based on the work of Dr. Jean Baker Miller, Dr. Judith Jordan and others, focuses on the components of Relational Cultural Theory. Relational Cultural Theory "is not forming a separated, independent self, but rather the ability to participate actively in relationships that foster the well-being of everyone involved (i.e. growth-fostering relationships." The theory teaches the source of human suffering is isolation and that the end to isolation is the creation of relationships and establishing high quality connections.
What It Takes to Build Organizational Excellence
In this webcast, Stanford professor and bestselling author Robert Sutton will explore what it takes for leaders and teams to spread better beliefs and actions throughout an organization. Sutton will reveal how the best leaders and teams develop, deploy, and instill the right mindsets in their people -- rather than ruining or watering down the very things that have fueled successful growth in the past.
By attending you’ll gain useful, but not simplistic, guidelines for meeting the difficult challenge of scaling up and sustaining excellence as organizations grow and programs expand.
These tactics will be explained using examples from organizations ranging from start-ups, like Pulse News and Citrus Lane, to medium-size firms, such as IDEO and Pixar, to large firms, including Google, Procter & Gamble, IKEA, and General Electric, to healthcare systems, including Kaiser Permanente, to not-for-profits, including the Girl Scouts, to government organizations, including the U.S. Army and the Transportation Security Administration.
You want to share the impact volunteers have in your organization and in the community, but often the information you track doesn’t help you tell that story.
This webinar will help you move past number of volunteers and number of hours and start telling the real story. You'll learn about information gathering and the key components to good storytelling, how to evaluate your current measurements and how to build support for a more thorough measurement and evaluation program, and how to engage other staff – paid and volunteer – in this work. You'll also receive a worksheet to help you begin to tell the story of volunteer impact in your organization.

At VolunteerMatch we have a unique view into what volunteers are looking for in an opportunity. The age of one-size fits all volunteer engagement is coming to an end. This webinar will start with a review of some of the things that we know about what volunteers are looking for in an opportunity. It will then help you use this information to start designing volunteer opportunities and determining who is the “right” volunteer for your program. You’ll also learn how “word of mouth” plays such a large role in attracting volunteers to your organization and how social media makes this even more important.

Better Manage Your Multigenerational Employees
With four generations in the workforce today, tensions are inevitable but problems are avoidable.
These generations think differently, vote differently, buy differently, and dress differently. Work ethic, respect, turnover, dress code, communication tools, fun at work can create real problems for managers and organizations, or they can provide opportunities to bring the generations together.
The bottom line is that what worked in the past doesn’t work now.
Members of one generation will often grumble about another generation using stereotypes that mire a team in needless sticking points. This webcast will show you a practical approach to get the four generations working together.
Stop just talking the talk and start walking the walk!
