March Workforce 360 - Improving Outcomes with an Executive Skills Approach

03/11/2020 08:30 AM - 11:00 AM CST

Description

Everyone has Executive Skills. Applying the brain and behavioral science of Executive Skills to workforce development program design, coaching strategies, goal setting, and job development can create a more equitable workforce development field of practice, with the potential for improved training and job-related outcomes.

In this interactive session, attendees will learn when and how Executive Skills develop, why they matter, and will discern their own Executive Skills profile. Attendees will learn the five components of an Executive Skills Approach that New Moms uses to improve attendance, educational gains, and job retention in its workforce development program. Attendees will discuss and reflect on how they can use Executive Skills-informed insights to design and implement more effective and equitable processes and services in their own work. Attendees will leave with a practitioner toolkit to incorporate Executive Skills strategies into their staff relationships and training, program design, participant coaching, and employer partnerships.
