Indian Country’s Supervision and Management Summit, Las Vegas, NV., Dec 5 - 7
Join us for Indian Country’s Supervision and Management Summit, where expert instructors Richard McGee and Lisa Riggleman* will guide you to solutions for your toughest management problems. Whether experienced or new to management, the challenges have never been greater. Find out how you can navigate the pitfalls and capitalize on the strengths of your unique position as a manager in a tribal organization. You’ll leave this important summit with tools you can use on the job, including the knowledge you need to create a problem-solving culture among your co-workers, manage workplace conflict, and use your valuable time as efficiently as possible.
We’ll examine 10 important facts you need to know about the Fair Labor Standards Act, whether you may be at risk of being sued as an individual because of workplace practices and how you can protect yourself, how you can use meaningful performance reviews to get the most out of your employees, and what you need to keep a close eye on when reviewing a contract. You’ll also complete a self-assessment that will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses as a manager, and figure out how to build on your strengths while eliminating your weaknesses.
This Summit is your opportunity to enhance your skills, discover new techniques and network with others who are experiencing the same challenges. Don’t miss this important event. Register today to reserve your seat. Website Notice [exit notice]
