Leadership styles are continually evolving to incorporate new ways of thinking about employee satisfaction, motivation and performance. Find webinars and videos on the strategies, techniques and qualities that make an effective leader. By participating in this community you will gain insight into current leadership theories and how to optimize employee performance.
As leaders, our role is to support and serve others so they can grow, be challenged and become the leaders of themselves and others we need them to be. With the responsibility of leadership, come both the satisfaction of seeing others’ achievements but also, the difficulty of dealing with those who are reluctant to change.
Many recent studies show that self-awareness is one of the most important qualities we can develop in ourselves and others. Our self-awareness allows us to step outside of ourselves so that we can fully focus on giving others the opportunity to reflect and change. As we recognize that change is never easy, we need to handle conversations in a sensitive, yet outcome-focused manner if they are to have the desired effect of helping others grow and develop their own self-awareness.
The magic of growth happens when we step out of comfort zone and Dominique Mas believe that everyone deserves a chance to be shown how to get there! As leaders, we can provide this chance through conversation as we show a growth mindset for ourselves and others.
In this webinar, you will:
-Learn to frame difficult conversations in a non-threatening, yet powerful way to ensure a strong impact
-Reflect on how to prepare yourself for the conversation
-Reflect on how to prepare the other person for the conversation
-Gain tools to stay in control during the situation and follow up to ensure the outcome is clear and solution focused.
Discover how your team can:
Wow them: Onboarding success
Love them: Build and strengthen relationships
Sell them: Get repeat business and upsells
Develop them: They will become your best referral source

What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?
Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.
This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.
The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.

Even the most assertive of us will sometimes catch ourselves doing things simply to please others. It's not always a bad thing but when it gets out of hand it can feel like we have no control over our own life.

This will be an interactive session in which Life Transformation Coach Corinne Worsley will share her thoughts, experiences and know how to help you get clear on the impact people pleasing is having on your life, why you do it and to give you practical ways to put a stop to it before you lose your mind.

Two trends are changing the way localization needs to be handled: the content explosion and the desire for personalized content. More content is being created now than ever before in history, and people expect to find that content in their native language. Quickly, and not as an afterthought.
To meet this need, localization must become a more nimble process and embrace incremental content creation. We’ve started to see how data-driven localization can be used to help businesses drive efficiency in the localization process. And now, for fast-moving businesses updating and translating content on a frequent basis, it’s time to embrace Continuous Localization.

- What Continuous Localization is.
- Why fast-paced global organizations are moving to this translation model.
- The benefits our customers are seeing from Continuous Localization.
- What technology and processes are required to achieve Continuous Localization.
- How to get started.

With 90% of all data in the world created in just the past 2 years, you’ll probably be surprised to hear that thinking processes generated 2,500 years ago can still help us to make sense of this explosion of information. Critical thinking through rational, unbiased analysis is still a bedrock for survival in business today.

If you want to learn how to focus on essential information, ignore irrelevant inputs and solve complex problems, one key will be to understand critical thinking and when to apply it.

Pricing is one of the highest impact growth levers in a business, but most companies spend less than 15 hours per year on their pricing strategy. To make matters worse, sales practices around discounting, poor customer research, and improper targeting result in significant losses that can't be made up by just spending more time on acquisition-based growth.
To help you take advantage of pricing's power, this webinar will cover:
-How the market has changed, making acquisition-based growth harder
-How discounting negatively impacts growth
-Product problems that arise from the lack of pricing persona fit
-A framework for understanding your buyers
I keep saying to business owners, C-Suite Executives, Managers and Employees that nothing happens in business until somebody sells something.
That’s the message of this webinar. Great organisations are those that understand people, create and adapt process and manage with empathy and leadership that inspires everyone in the business to work, breathe and share the core values that underpin everything the brand stands for.
Sales is all about people and the messages focus on why selling is an emotional experience and the essential human characteristics needed to be successful. It’s not about glittering CV’s or past reputation it’s about what you believe and how persuasive and authentic your messages are during your conversations between you and the client.
However, structure and processes that keep the business on track are an important part of any organisation’s success and having the right leaders in place that understand people and live and breathe the visions and values of the company is an essential part of the machine.
Great people, processes that work and inspired leadership is what this webinar is all about.
