October 6: Lead Inside the Box:
Leading Teams to Effectiveness
Join Jerry Ervin, President and Founder of Paragon Strategies, and Mike Figliuolo, author of Lead Inside the Box as they discuss leadership effectiveness on this free ERadio Webinar.

Every employee is different, but unfortunately many leaders use a one-size-fits-all approach to leading. In doing so, these otherwise well-intentioned leaders are working harder than they should while not getting all they could out of their teams. Lead Inside the Box gives leaders a way to get the best out of their teams by focusing their energy where it will make the biggest difference. It teaches leaders how to:

·       Figure out where they are currently investing their time and energy across their teams

·       Identify the unique leadership needs of each team member

·       Make smarter decisions about how and where to invest their time and energy to get the best results out of everyone

Through simple frameworks brought to life with stories from the trenches, leaders will be able to see their own teams-and themselves-from a new perspective. Paradoxically these methods will enable leaders to improve their team's performance exponentially while expending half the effort.

November 10th: Managing Millennials: Make it Work

Join Jerry Ervin, President and Founder of Paragon Strategies as he interviews Lee Caraher, CEO of Double Forte and author, on The Essentials Guide to Making It Work at Work: Millennials and Management.
This book is for Boomers, GenXers and Millennials – no matter who’s in charge; read it with your team.

As Millennials join the workforce at a fast and steady rate, companies are struggling with tension and dissonance between Millennials and their GenXer and Boomer colleagues. And with Boomers planning to work longer than previous generations. companies can’t just wait for management to age out to fix the problem. Finding productive ways across the generation gap is essential, and organizations that do this well will have a strategic advantage over those that don’t.

Millennials & Management addresses the very real concern of small, medium and large businesses nationwide: how to motivate, collaborate with, and manage the Millennial generation, who now make up almost 50% of the American workforce. The key is for Boomers and GenXers to adjust their attitude from disbelief and derision to understanding and respect without giving up their work standards, AND for Millennials to move towards their older colleagues. Using real world examples with an optimistic and positive outlook, author Lee Caraher gives leaders and their employees practical steps to co-create a productive and engaging workplace for today and tomorrow that capitalizes on individual and group strengths.
