    Book:  "Nine Minutes on Monday" by James Robbins 

    Book Synopsis: 

    Transform Your Leadership in Minutes

    Nine Minutes on Monday is a book to help transform your leadership in just minutes a week. By helping you focus on the few things that drive motivation and engagement, Nine Minutes on Monday brings simplicity to leadership.


    Nine Minutes on Monday
     is a simple system to help you raise productivity, boost morale, and increase employee engagement. The number one reason why managers fail to increase productivity, and get the best out of their people is they neglect to keep their leadership priorities in front of them.

    In today’s environment it’s easy to become task focused, leaving work teams that are over-managed, under-led, and operating below their true potential. Nine Minutes on Monday combines proven engagement drivers and principles of human motivation into a simple system of execution. No matter how busy you are, Nine Minutes on Monday will ensure your staff are motivated, inspired, and equipped to bring their best to work each day.

    Books will be mailed to participants.

    Note: Upon registration, all participants will be assessed an invoice to their FMHRA account for $10. We ask that you do not pay this invoice immediately. Following your attendance at the Wine and Wisdom event, the invoice will be removed from your account. If you are unable to attend the Wine and Wisdom event, you will be required to pay the invoice.

    Elevate from Management to Leadership to Drive Performance - All Day Session

     

    If you are registered for the all-day session on November 12th, you do not need to register for the lunch session.

    All Day Session:  8:30-4:30 presented by Bethany Berkeley

    Session includes Educational Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. presented by Jay Peltier.

    Click here to register for the all-day session:  Elevate from Management to Leadership to Drive Performance (All Day Session)   
        

    Program Summary: 

    Workforce challenges continue to be the number one issue impacting local businesses. In our current climate, organizations are faced with rapid change and consistently lack talent retention and bench strength. As a result, managers often become stuck in a cycle of ensuring the most urgent tasks and projects are completed and have little time, energy, and resources to truly lead.  

    Elevating from managing the day-to-day to true leadership requires a coaching mindset – the active and strategic development of a team. When coaching becomes second nature, a new culture within the organization emerges, allowing leaders to delegate and manage time more efficiently, drive performance and retention, navigate change and plan for the future.

    Step back from the weeds and join us for an interactive session to gain insight and tangible tools to develop a coaching culture that will combat today’s most pressing workforce challenges.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Evaluate the effect of current workforce challenges on your organization as a whole
    2. Understand the big-picture importance of the cycle of development and talent management
    3. Evolve as an influential leader through increased self-awareness
    4. Develop coaching skills to drive performance on your team
    5. Navigate difficult conversations with diplomacy and tact
    6. Take away practical time management and delegation best practices   

    About the Speaker: 

    Bethany Berkeley is the Vice President of Business Development with Dale Carnegie Training where she collaborates with businesses to drive productivity and revenue through strategic workforce and culture development. She is a University of Texas at Austin graduate, a frequent community speaker, and believer in the power of giving back. She serves on the Board of Directors for The Great North Pole and is the Board President for CCRI.

    Leading Through Organizational Change (Lunch Session)


    If you are registered for the all-day session on November 12th, you do not need to register for the lunch session.

    Educational Luncheon 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

    Presented by Jay Peltier

    To register:   Leading Through Organizational Change (Lunch Session)


    Program Summary: 

    The need for leaders to successfully navigate organizational transitions is substantial and recent research confirms it; Deloitte notes that the rate of projected mergers and acquisitions is at an all-time high and the Bureau of Labor and Statistics showcases the increasing rate of baby boomers approaching retirement. 

    Maintaining high levels of morale and productivity when times are tough is vital for the overall growth and health of the organization; however, particularly during times of transition, attitudes and behaviors are contagious and it takes only one person to either negatively or positively influence the masses.

    Join us for the lunch session to hear from Jay Peltier, the new President and Owner of Dale Carnegie of ND & MN. Jay will share his experiences, lessons learned, and offer valuable insight to lead through change.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the different types of stress experienced by employees throughout change
    2. Communicate to lead with clarity and positivity
    3. Demonstrate appreciation and value to keep teams engaged

    About the Speaker: 

    Jay Peltier is the President of Dale Carnegie of ND/NW MN. He is a native of North Dakota and proud graduate of North Dakota State University. Jay’s energy is focused on serving others through transformation and developing communities by creating cultures of high productivity partnered with high engagement.
