Leadership & Team Building Sessions
The following courses will be presented at MAILCOM Las Vegas:
Managing a High Volume Mail Production Environment
The challenge has never been greater to manage your high volume mail environment. Between complex regulations and the need to present content the way your customer wants to see it is changing. What are you doing to comply? Have you thought about the impact of Americans With Disabilities (ADA section 508)? Redaction? We will look into these changes and how we have to rethink our printing and mailing operations. In the past deploying a new Automated Document Factory (ADF) was a 7 figure investment, now the investment is much lower and the productivity gains, are much higher. How will we cope with the dynamics of a changing demographic on how mail is received! There are many ways to accomplish the end result. Join us as we explore the opportunities that exist today t o give your customer the “customer experience” they expect from you.

Training for Success
Have you ever said to yourself as a manager, “Why don’t my employees know something I think they should know?” Or, “If I know how to handle this task why don’t my employees understand it?” Training always seems to be the answer that creeps up when these questions arise. There are many different forms of training, and selecting the right one can make or break the way a team not only receives the training but how well they retain the information and how/when/if it will be used. To help you learn to tailor your training we will talk about some different methods of delivering the valuable educational material, including in-person formats (one-on-one and groups), virtual training (designed or self-delivered), or finally a blended training approach that takes the best from many sources to tailor your training to your team’s specific needs.
Tuesday, October 3, 2017 – Round Six, 2:30-3:30 pm
Manager vs Leader
We have all worked for them, the good and bad managers or leaders. But what is the real difference between a manager and a leader? Most managers do not even realize that they are just managing their operation and not leading their greatest assets, their employees. Come discuss the differences between the two and how to transition from a manager to a leader. Learn techniques to catapult not only your career, but also that of your teammates or other managers that you might supervise. Learning to “lead” will arm you with the tools to elevate you and your program to new heights that would never be achieved by just “managing” daily operations.
