    The Pinnacle
    1772 Indian Wood Circle
    Maumee, OH 43537

    Join us Thursday, September 8th, for speaker Kim Ruyle presenting "Anesthetic for the Performance Appraisal Root Canal: Pain Free Urgency & Accountability."

    Kim will discuss how performance management shapes organizational culture, drives profitable growth, and engages and retains a productive workforce. But performance management is generally deemed ineffective. Many managers would endure a root canal rather than deliver a performance appraisal. Insights into performance management can be learned by studying neuroscience principles. This session explores those principles and provides practical guidelines for enhancing performance management in your organization.

    September 2016 General Membership Meeting - Five County

    Thursday, September 8, 2016 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM

    Northwest State Community College, Room H-104
    22600 OH-34
    Archbold, OH

    Join us Thursday, September 8th, for the topic of "Catching Black Cats in Dark Rooms: Capturing the Expertise of Baby Boomers before They're Gone" presented by Kim Ruyle.

    The loss of expertise occurring as baby boomers retire is a huge problem. Expertise is an asset to be preserved, enhanced, and disseminated. Easier said than done. Expertise is transparent to the expert. The most valuable expertise can't easily be articulated. Tacit expertise reveals itself through intuition almost magically. This session reveals practical methods for turning tacit expertise into explicit expertise.
