How to Crush Being a Boss in 60 Minutes!

Wednesday, May 31, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)


Presenter: Tiana Sanchez

Poorly performing managers cost billions of dollars every year. Yes, that's billions with a "B." It's financially smart and responsible to learn how to thrive not merely survive in the "boss-lane." It's not luck, a good guess, trial and error but a carefully crafted offense. Understandably, the average boss is not prepared for a chaotic work climate, varying attitudes, unpopularity, being accountable for others - the human element. But who wants to be average? We want exceptional bosses who thrive in their environments.

In this webinar, you will learn how "boss success" depends greatly on understanding the "human element" in managing others and why so often it's overlooked. You will pinpoint where you have missed the mark and learn how to get back on track. Tiana will cover these 10 points:

- Employee-Centered Leadership
- Reciprocated Trust
- Holistic Learning
- Responsible Honesty
- Transparency
- Recurring Feedback
- Intentional Coaching
- Unbiased Listening
- A "Compassionate Probe"
- Visible Praise

How to Make Yourself a Better Job Candidate and Stand Out in a Crowd

Wednesday, June 21, 2017
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Jennifer Selden, Regional Recruiting Director of the Mid Atlantic and Southeast regions for Randstad Technologies and Kathy Van Pelt, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Randstad Technologies

Even though it's a sellers' market for most IT workers, the "best" job candidates get offered the most attractive jobs. Sometimes conveying what makes you the "best" candidate is unclear - is it just about technical skills or is there more to it? There are issues job candidates should be aware of to improve their results and land a job that best suits their immediate needs and career goals.

In this webinar, Jennifer Selden, Regional Recruiting Director and Kathy Van Pelt, Vice President of Strategic Marketing at Randstad Technologies will offer insights on how the tech job market is changing and the challenges and opportunities candidates need to understand, including:

> What are the most important "soft" skills organizations are looking for and why having them will make you a much more attractive candidate?

> Why being a good cultural fit for an employer might be more important than compensation.

> How to prove that you're a self-starter.

> Understanding how organizations' expectations of IT workers have changed from that of a support role to a line function - and what that means for you.

> Which other high-demand tech skills will set you apart regardless of your specialty.

Jennifer's key objective in this role is to work with her teams to build long lasting relationships, while driving recruiting excellence and collaborative success.
