Communication Styles and Group Dynamics
Laura Moriarty, President of Tahoe Training Partners
Have you noticed that some people are on the same wavelength as you and can practically finish your sentences? Do you know others with whom you just can’t seem to connect? Maybe you’ve come to the conclusion that people who interrupt you are deliberately being rude, when it may be that this is how they are wired to communicate. We all have a dominant communication style, and it is eye-opening to realize that others need to receive and process information differently than ourselves.

Situation Leadership and Delegating for Results
Laura Moriarty, President of Tahoe Training Partners
What’s your “management style?” Do you manage all team members the same way? Should you monitor every move they make when they are brand new? Do you know when to get out of the way? The answer can be found in the Situational Leadership Model. By understanding the amount of direction and support each employee needs on their learning curve, you will be better equipped to motivate and develop each individual team member and avoid micromanagement.

Leader Luncheon & Recognition
Network with your fellow leaders while enjoying stunning views. Celebrate Pillar Award recipient Rick Putch of National Steel Rule Co.

Sink or Swim…IADD Regatta
Put your engineering caps on for this fast and exciting program! You will be split into teams of 3-5 and given the task to build a boat that will hold your Team Captain (pre-assigned) in a race across the pool. Not only will each team start with a limited number of resources to construct their boat, but you will also be given a limited amount of time to complete the construction. Upon completion of building the boats, time trials will be hosted. May the best boat win!

Roundtable Discussion - Training the Next Generation of Employees
Jenny Holliday, CEO of IADD
The hiring market today is changing rapidly; with the Great Resignation, you may find yourself in constant need of new talent. Using a "How, Now, Wow" exercise, attendees will discuss industry pain points, then brainstorm and prioritize solutions.
