    Creating a Culture of Continuous Feedback & Develepment
    Srinivas Krishnamurti Recorded: Feb 6 2019 49 mins
    It seems like every day, a new company announces its plan to get rid of the performance review. Rightfully so—according to CEB, a company of 10,000 employees spends an average of 200 manager hours and $35 million annually on this process, which yields little to no return. But before you go and throw away your company’s review process, be prepared with what you will implement instead.

    In order to create a high-performance culture, you will need a more holistic framework that is designed to allow employees to own their development, creating an impact on your company culture and bottom line. Incorporating the practices of continuous feedback and employee development resources are vital staples in creating a performance management process that will help engage and retain employees. In this webinar, Srinivas Krishnamurti, the CEO and co-founder of Zugata, a performance management software company, will walk through how to effectively establish these practices in your company culture.

    You will learn:
    -How to equip employees with actionable feedback that leads to continuous performance improvement
    -How to increase adoption of continuous feedback and development practices amongst employees and management
    -The role that HR and Managers play in employee-owned development and the right cadence for manager check-ins and feedback
    -How real companies have successfully implemented an employee-centric performance model focused on continuous feedback and development

  • Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Scott Abel, Tonie Flores, M.K. Palmore, and Keyaan Williams Mar 12 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.

    The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.

    Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.
