Succession planning
August 24, 2023

Succession planning, or preparing employees for new leadership roles, isn't just for family businesses or c-suite positions. Identifying the employees who can take on new roles, preparing them to do so, and facilitating their success has become critical for staffing most leadership positions in organizations today. This interactive workshop led by Dr. Marcia Dickerson and Dr. Kirk Ring is intended to help your organization assess your succession planning needs, implement developmental activities to boost succession success, and evaluate your efforts. Pairs or teams from organizations are encouraged to attend, as we facilitate small group work specific to your company.

This course is eligible for continuing education credits and recertification credits for Louisiana CPAs, CFPs, and CIAs (6 hours).

August 24, 2023, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Squire Creek Country Club, Choudrant, LA. Breakfast and lunch included.

creating coaches workshop

Coaching is one of  the fastest growing developmental activities in businesses today, and for good reason--it works! Coaching enhances individual performance, particularly for leadership roles, boosts employee retention, and accelerates profitability. External coaches or off-the-shelf programs can't capitalize on the institutional knowledge and human capital that can you leverage with your own coaching program.  With this workshop, we show you how to

     (1) set up your own internal coaching program,

     (2) develop your own managers and leaders into effective coaches, and

     (3) customize our coaching activities

to enhance employee and firm performance. This workshop includes hands-on activities and discussion, so most organizations benefit from sending a couple of members from their team.

This course is eligible for continuing education credits and recertification credits for Louisiana CPAs, CFPs, and CIAs (4 hours).

Not only does this course provide you with the knowledge on how to effectively practice human resources in the workplace, but it also reminds you of your rights as an employee. As a young professional entering the workforce, this class was very insightful. Human resources is such an important thing to be knowledgeable about regardless of your career.
