|8:45 am||MicroInequities: The Power of Small|
The essence of the MicroInequities: The Power of Small program is to bring to leadership’s attention the power that micro-messages have on leadership effectiveness, employee performance and customer retention and loyalty. One of the program’s key messages is the inextricable link this new knowledge and skill has on the business case. This is a recurring link throughout the session with tangible examples of the direct impact on internal and external performance.
The performance of every employee, at every level, hinges directly on the influence of environment, culture and leadership messages. As we have all observed, it is not uncommon for a “poor” performer to be managed out of the business, who then takes a similar job at a different company and does exceptionally well in their new role. In those cases, the employees’ performance had nothing to do with their skill or ability. Clearly, the performance was influenced entirely by their environment and the messages they were being sent that caused the performance to either become shut down or “unlocked.”The Leadership Series is supported by a generous contribution from TIAA-CREF

Beware of Room Block Poachers:This is the practice of companies posing as an agent or representative of an association offering hotel reservation services. They may offer a hotel room at a lower cost, and have an official sounding name such as "Exhibition Housing Management". "Poachers" will immediately charge your credit card, sometimes with a "service fee", and in many cases will not make a reservation. Be advised that this is NOT an official service. No attendee should be contacted about hotel reservations except by NACUBO. If someone outside of NACUBO contacts you, we urge you to ignore them and report them immediately to NACUBO.
