Squeaky Clean HR Series
Effective management of human resources is essential for creating successful organizational results. As a part of doing business, nonprofit organizations must be aware of and adhere to all legal employment requirements, exercise fair and equitable HR practices that attract and retain qualified individuals, and provide a safe work environment. The Squeaky Clean HR Series will help nonprofit leaders and HR staff to provide a safe, welcoming, and productive work environment while protecting their employees and their organization from harmful and illegal practices.
The Squeaky Clean HR Series is presented by the Human Resource Association of the Midlands and the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands.
Promoting From Within - Saying No
When it comes to promoting talent from within managers can face a series of questions:
- Is the employee ready for an increase in responsibility?
- Does the employee have the ability to bring people together to achieve a common goal?
- Is the employee an effective communicator?
- Does the employee have the emotional maturity to be a leader and manager?
This session will explore the following topics:
- The employee who is technically competent, but lacks the emotional maturity to assume a leadership role
- The employee who struggles maintaining boundaries and may want to be friends with instead of leading and managing team members
- Team members who struggle with the responsibility from moving from a team member to a leadership role
We explore the topic of having coaching conversations with employees who believe they are ready for leadership positions or increased levels of responsibility, but may need additional coaching in the areas of technical expertise, interpersonal communication, or emotional maturity before assuming a leadership position.
We will also explore how to keep employees engaged and motivated when denying them a leadership position or increased responsibility.
