PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES FOR THE SOCIETY OF INSURANCE TRAINERS & EDUCATORSFrom Amy Franko & Bill Fournet
Dear SITE Members,
With the cancellation of the 2020 SITE Annual Conference, we won’t have the chance to meet in person in New Orleans this June. I’ll look forward to working with you in 2021, and in the meantime I’d like to share some timely professional development resources.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work. For training professionals, it has also changed how we provide learning experiences. Some of these changes might be transient, and others more permanent as we move into the future. To help my clients not only survive, but thrive, I teamed with Bill Fournet, founder and CEO of The Persimmon Group, to produce this two-part webinar series on Excelling Through the Chaos.
We invite you to watch the recordings below and share them with your team. If you have any questions about the content, or if there’s anything we can do to help you move your business forward, please contact us.
To your success,
Excelling Through Chaos:
How Social Capital Can Help You Thrive in Challenging Times
These are unprecedented times. But one thing that remains constant is the importance of our relationships with one another. If you’re now asking, “How can I (and my team) build relationships when we’re working in extended virtual environments?” you’re not alone! In this webinar, Amy and Bill cover practical strategies for building relationships virtually and in times of uncertainty. They view this important topic through these lenses: organizational, people/employees, and revenue growth.
Excelling Through the Chaos:
How Three Lenses Help You Maintain Agility
Agility is the theme of the day. For leaders and sales professionals, we strive to balance where we need to maintain our current course of action and when we need to change it. Traditional decision-making approaches are being stressed now more than ever before. In this webinar, Amy and Bill share Three Lenses—perspectives of your organization for decision-making and actions–that leaders and sellers should apply today to assess their agility. They view this important topic through these lenses: strategy, revenue growth, and operational performance.
