AA-ISP Columbus Chapter: Winning the War on Talent from a Candidate and Employer Perspective

Where: Rev 1 Ventures, 1275 Kinnear Rd, Columbus, OH 43212
When: October 16th @ 7:30am EST/EDT

This event is sponsored by Crosworks career and talent strategists - empowering people with clarity and focus to do their best work. They believe that every employee, at every level, can and should do work that both provides personal fulfillment and moves the organization forward.

 

Come hear an all-star panel talk about talent acquisition and job hunting. Today it's much less about posting a job and finding the right candidate. It's also much less about applying for a job and getting that offer. Candidates and employers have many sources available to help during this process to shorten the cycle on both sides. 

Candidates

Finding a job is harder than ever. While the majority of open positions are posted on company websites and job boards, it seems that applicants submit their information into a black hole only to wait, and wait, and wait some more. So how do you get that call back? Come here some tips on how to use your resume, your network, and your social profiles to stand out from the crowd.

Employers

Filling jobs is harder than ever. With the decreasing unemployment rate, demand for higher wages, and competitive environments, applicants almost have their pick of employers. Whether you are hiring entry level college grads or experienced staff, positions are becoming harder and harder to fill in timely manners and on budget.

Our Panel

Ken Lazar - Principal, Ability Professional Network

  • Having spent over fifteen years in talent acquisition and professional staffing, Ken brings his experience to our panel with a focus on hiring sales people. This has been a core focus of his for years and we are excited to hear about his suggestions and best practices.

Shelly Stotzer - Owner, Crosworks

  • Shelly believes that every employee, at every level, can and should do work that both moves the business forward and provides personal fulfillment. She uses her extensive executive leadership and coaching expertise to help clients - both organizations and individuals - gain the clarity and focus they need to perform their best work  She also leads the Crosworks team in guiding clients to success through proven processes that bring  a great sense of self-awareness by defining each individual’s strengths, interests, skills and best-fit work environment. With this clarity, she then counsels clients to engage in ways that deliver both personal fulfillment and maximum results.

Rachael Maruca - Happiness Coordinator, Aunt Flow

  • Rachael has went from owning and operating her own business to working in a few inside sales roles. She's sold, she's managed customers, she's led a sales team, and is now working for a startup. She's been aggressive in her job pursuits and has a great perspective to share from a candidates view on what she likes and doesn't like from the application process to interview process, to hiring process.

Lora Zotter - Vice President of Employee Experience, MentorcliQ

  • Lora is no stranger to the hiring process. She has helped companies of all sizes source and hire exceptional talent. She currently serves as Vice President of Employee Experience for MentorcliQ, where she focuses on talent attraction, onboarding, and retention / culture. Before joining MentorcliQ, she served as the Director of Talent Programs for Rev1 Ventures, where she helped high-growth startups connect with talent and resources in the community.

AA-ISP Providence Chapter: Providence Chapter and #GirlsClub meetup. Two communities coming together for networking and learning.

Where: Upserve, 10 Dorrance St, Providence, RI 02903
When: November 7th @ 5:00pm EST/EDT

This is a special night. The Providence Chapter is teaming up with #GirlsClub and Lauren Bailey to present a great night of networking and learning.

The #GirlsClub meetup starts at 5:00 and then AA-ISP kicks off at 6:00 PM. And, if joining these two amazing communities in one event isn't enough, we've got beer and wine too.

 

At 6:30 Lauren Bailey will teach you how to Double Your Selling Time with Better Intros.

Coffee is NOT for closers. . . it’s for openers! Especially in phone sales, it’s harder and harder to get and keep prospects’ attention. So your most critical tool isn’t your close, it’s your opening! 

 

Parking and Location:

There is street parking and lots nearby. Please take the elevator to the 9th floor to the Upserve office.

 

About Lauren Bailey

Voted "Top 25 Most Influential Leaders in Inside Sales, Top 25 Sales Coaches and Top 35 Most Influential Women in Sales" this year, Lauren Bailey is the Founder of Factor 8, The Sales Bar, and #GirlsClub, and she’s  on a mission to help more people feel more successful at work. 

After spending nearly 20 years launching and leading Inside Sales organizations around the World, she started Factor 8 to help solve the problems she kept seeing in inside sales centers: Sales rep and sales managers woefully unprepared to sell over the phone. That meant poor calls, poor results, and massive turnover. Lauren knows that really preparing folks for their roles helps them feel more confident. And when people feel successful at work, we would see transformations - in careers, departments, companies, and lives. 

Factor 8 has received numerous awards for best rep and manager sales education, and last year Lauren leveraged that curriculum to start her passion project called #GirlsClub. management training, mentoring, and confidence building program.

When: November 26th @ 8:00am EST/EDT

Come hear Steve Richard, Chief Evangelist and Co-Founder of Execvision, speak about some of the ways to build a best in class sales organization by focusing on your culture and the drive to coach your team.

Culture is what your reps are doing when no one is looking.  Top companies don’t leave their learning and development to chance.  They seek out innovative ways to foster a sales coaching culture that creates consistency and accountability at scale.  In this fast moving session, Steve Richard from ExecVision will take you step by step through the best practices of sales coaching.  You will learn how to:

  • Form a clear ‘why’ that underpins your coaching program including quantitative and qualitative measures of success
  • Use metrics as a diagnostic to inform coaching
  • Gain agreement on what ‘good’ looks like for your different call types which will turn into your call coaching scorecards
  • Create a positive, productive call coaching culture that reps love while eliminating defensiveness
  • Apply lessons from neuroscience for how and when to coach
  • Coach using the observe, describe, prescribe model
  • Foster an environment of self-assessment and peer coaching to ease the burden on managers to do all the coaching
  • Harness the power of the habit loop to change rep behavior
  • Calibrate by having managers independently listen to and score calls for different skills, then compare scores
  • Leverage research on who to coach and how to handle reps who reject coaching to make better use of your time
