    Monday Morning Speaker: Bruce Barlow


    Conversation with BRUCE BARLOW

    Bruce Barlow
    Career Transition Consultant
    Lee Hecht Harrison

    Many large organizations and corporations offer outplacement assistance to their employees facing career transition.  Join us to learn more about the key steps to a successful transition from a career transition consultant who works with individuals who have been separated from their employers.  

    What makes the difference between a brief transition and an extended search?  What are the best ways to connect to people who can assist you with your search?  What are some steps to avoid in your own career search?

    Bruce Barlow is a Career Transition Consultant with Lee Hecht Harrison, one of the largest and most active outplacement assistance firms in the country.
    Prior to joining Lee Hecht Harrison, Bruce worked for corporate and nonprofit groups as a market research executive who uses well-crafted market research/design thinking to help organizations better understand where they fit in their target audiences' lives, to build internal consensus on the current and likely future state of their market, and to identify the most effective strategies/tactics to build market share, enhance customer experience, to identify inefficiencies, and expand profits.  Clients included AARP, Meals on Wheels America, and Duke University. 


    Lee Hecht Harrison helps companies simplify leadership and workforce transformation so they can accelerate their performance and reduce risk.

    Organizations around the world are continuously transforming their businesses to drive growth and productivity. This involves changing the company’s structure, culture, and capabilities—which requires carefully managing employee morale, engagement, and their employer brand to retain and attract key talent. The challenge is how to manage the complexity of people and workforce change, and execute quickly and consistently so they can realize their growth and productivity goals.

    Lee Hecht Harrison helps companies simplify the complexity associated with transforming their leadership and workforce so they can accelerate results, with less risk. We do this by helping their employees navigate change, become better leaders, develop better careers, and transition into new jobs. As the world’s leading Talent Development and Transition company, we have the local expertise, global infrastructure, and industry leading technology and analytics required to simplify the complexity associated with executing critical talent and workforce initiatives, reducing brand and operational risk. Teams in more than 60 countries around the world leverage our proven programs and global experience to deliver tailored solutions to clients that align talent with the needs of their business.

    Monday Morning Speaker: Erik Fromm


    Conversation with Erik Fromm

    Erik Fromm

    Janney Montgomery Scott

    Especially in the heightened stress of transitional periods of our lives, we must combat forces that lead to poor decisions. Drawing on behavioral psychology research and our team’s collective experience in navigating situations for our clients, we’ll discuss the impact of Narrow Framing, Confirmation Bias, Short Term Emotion, and Overconfidence and discuss a four-step process designed to counteract these biases.

     

    Primary source of the material – “Decisive” By Dan and Chip Heath.


    What steps should professionals in transition take to safeguard their financial future?  Are there specific tax and financial strategies for transition that can minimize risk and reduce stress?  What should you do when you find a new role, to build financial health and future security?

    These are just a few of the vital questions that we'll address during this presentation.  

    Erik Fromm

    Erik is a lead Financial Advisor with CSG Capital Partners of Janney Montgomery Scott. He holds his FINRA series 7,66 and 31 license as well as a general insurance license. In addition to these licenses, Erik is a Certified Financial Planning professional. With his strong financial planning background, Erik works with individual and corporate clients in transition, providing the guidance necessary to master key defining moments, from buying your first home, to career progressions, to preparing for retirement. Understanding that emotional and financial transitions go together, Erik works with CSG clients to understand the full impact of their meaning to the client, family or business, and tailors appropriate investment solutions to meet that need.

    On a personal level, Erik is a graduate of Gettysburg College where he excelled as a scholar-athlete. A passionate student of leadership and behavioral economics, he enjoys the opportunity to apply these disciplines to the team's client experience. He and his wife Ashley were married in Bali, Indonesia and love to travel, having explored world locations such as Belize and Thailand. Their time these days is occupied by the newest addition to their family, and future traveler and golfer, their son Ashton. A perfect weekend day for the Fromms is spent outside at the farmer's market, at the park, and around the grill.

    Monday Morning Speaker:  Lynn Smith


    How Do You Find the Job You Really Want: “Sell” Yourself!

        

    Conversation with
    LYNN SMITH

           
     

    Research has shown that between 70 and 80% of jobs are never advertised. And even more daunting, when positions are posted, your odds of getting that job are a paltry 3%.

    So how do you find the job that you really want? You can stop spending time reacting to advertised opportunities and start saving time by using a proactive approach to market yourself to organizations who can benefit by your experience and skills.

    Selling is not an easy job, and selling yourself can seem even harder. I will show you how I have used my 20 years in sales and sales leadership roles to coach individuals using basic selling skills to find the job that isn’t advertised.

    In my presentation you will learn:

    ·    Identify your target market: Organizations where you want to work

    ·    Find the decision maker: Who is the hiring manager

    ·    Prospecting: Mechanics of creating a job search campaign

    ·    Metrics and accountability: Tracking your activity

    ·   Making the sale: Rewards for achieving your job search goals
