    Our speaker is Robert Simpson from the Social Security Administration. Your employees have made a valuable investment by paying into the Social Security system. Most tend not to think about this investment until something happens - a loved one passes away, a family member becomes disabled, a divorce occurs, or retirement sneaks up. Unexpectedly, they are presented with an unfamiliar situation that prompts them to perhaps turn to you for Social Security guidance.

    Our speaker will be Steve Roberts from Safety Performance Solutions. Organizations have historically focused on improving safety by addressing the work environment. Eliminating/mitigating hazards, providing better tools and equipment, and developing and enforcing safe procedures are all valuable approaches that have understandably worked well at improving safety. But many organizations have reached a plateau, finding that relying primarily on these approaches without taking a more comprehensive view of safety produces only marginal gains.

    Most leaders hate difficult conversations and having to give feedback. We go out of our way to duck and dodge these conversations until it becomes critical. This "lag" time prevents truth, transparency and accountability to occur.

    Participants will learn why difficult conversations are hard to have, how using feedback promotes development and accountability, how to prepare for difficult conversations and how to remove the emotional angst.
