Hiring, Firing and Inspiring an Exceptional Team

Presented by: Seth Petry-Johnson

Management gets a bad rap in technical circles, and for good reason: many managers are terrible, and it shows!

Rising above the pointy-haired-boss stereotypes is easier than you might think. By grounding your leadership style in management science, and adding a touch of emotional intelligence, you can help your team meet its individual and collective goals, improve morale and engagement, and reduce turnover.

This session will show early-career managers how to improve recruiting and retention via core values, how to communicate effectively with personality-typing tools like DISC, how to improve decision-making with a process called Cynefin, and how to "transition with empathy" when someone isn't working out.
