Program Information:
In a recent SIM SD session we explored the dynamic people challenges inherent in our organizations. In this program, Beth Summers, PhD will share concrete tips and techniques for people development. She will briefly review current programmatic best practices, and then focus on specific examples of how to develop individuals and teams as a leader and manager. Her insights into 2-fers, 3-fers, how to "developmentally delegate," conduct developmental staff meetings and create stretch assignments is both entertaining and immediately applicable to your world.
She will bring examples from her decades of experience, where Beth has observed and coached thousands of people. She will discuss examples of "leader bootstrapping" she learned while on the scene in the early days of Apple when unprecedented growth drove demand for leader development. She will cover some of the best practices learned from the Tom Peters Group, Charles Schwab and Dell during their high growth craziness. And finally, she will share expertise she learned during the last 15 years, where Beth has been a leading consultant in leadership development and a Master Associate for the Lominger leadership development toolkit (now a part of Korn-Ferry International).
Further description of her background is on her site www.BethSummers.com where some tips and examples are included as podcasts.
