Based in Massapequa Park, Mom-mentum provides leadership, education and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today’s professional and personal challenges. To make the most out of Achieving Extraordinary, attendees will be encouraged to put their phones away and listen.“We are bringing together a powerful group of female leaders to inspire action and continue to work toward moving the needle on women’s leadership,” says Mom-mentum Executive Director Alison LaFerlita. “We want to empower women to execute change.”According to LaFerlita, “Women are poised to become a majority in the workforce for the first time in US history. This year, we saw a 25-percent jump from the previous year in the number of women Fortune 500 CEOs. In the last decade, women-owned businesses nearly doubled in number, and now account for 40 percent of all US businesses.”In response to this projection, the organization has established a professional development service called the Mom-mentum Return-to-Work Program to give advice and assistance to both women in the workforce and those looking to return to work.“We are often asked how we can help women succeed in today’s world with so many demands, on both their personal and professional lives,” explains LaFerlita. “These requests inspired us to create a strong professional development service for women in all phases of their careers. This service is unique to all others, as it is a benefit of membership and a built-in support system to help you achieve extraordinary.”Conference emcee, Danielle Campbell, co-anchor for News12 Long Island, is a professional media executive and mother of four. Campbell’s charming persona will keep a lively conversation flowing, ensuring that the conference program moves along.While webinars can fill in the knowledge gap up to a point, there is no replacement for face-to-face presentations and networking to focus on the task at hand and spark creativity. The conference organizers are asking Long Island women leaders to go outside of their network, cultivate new contacts and meet new people in their industry.The conference begins at 8:30 am with breakfast, an exhibitor expo and networking. Immediately after, the first course, Building and Leading High Performance Teams and Leaders, is being presented by Ellen Cooperperson, CEO of Corporate Performance Consultants, an expert in the field of team building and a Certified Facilitator and Strategic Business Leadership coach.Cooperperson’s interactive workshop will show women how they can compare their leadership style in three critical areas and learn the best practices of highly successful women leaders. “You will learn how your greatest strength can become your greatest liability and how to identify your team member’s unique abilities and limitations to reach and exceed goals,” Cooperperson says.“An organization is a network of conversations,” she continues. “The ability to adapt your communication style to influence a group of diverse individuals and turn them into a cohesive winning team is key to your effectiveness as a leader.”Next on the day’s agenda is Liz Bentley, founder of Liz Bentley Associates, who will begin a conversation about the Leaky Talent Pipeline: Things That Hinder Women from Advancing or Advancing More Quickly.Bentley will talk about how women can build their confidence and overcome barriers, both internal and external, to their growth. She will offer strategies to address these unique challenges to help women be more impactful in their organization.The luncheon keynote speaker, Debra Sandler, touted as a Visionary Global C-Level Executive, will share her insights and experiences from her more than 30 years in corporate America and the boardroom. Sandler will also be sharing her views on how women who choose to work can create a world of limitless possibilities.The afternoon session is a panel of highly successful Long Island business experts led by moderator Domenique Camacho Moran, a partner at Farrell Fritz, PC, who will be discussing the topic: Courageous Conversations: Voices of Work & Life.The interactive conversation between the panel and the conference attendees will explore ways to handle work-life balance and examine workplace policies and legislation that impacts the family, and will openly discuss how they achieved business success while managing their personal lives.Panelists include: Terri Alessi-Miceli, president of the HIA-LI; Scott Behson, professor of management at Farleigh Dickinson University; Yvonne Grant, president & CEO of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County; Hillary Needle, president of Hillary Needle Events; and Nassau County Supreme Court Justice, the Hon.

Why feedback should be a priority at your credit union

first_img 38SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com. John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details When feedback is obtained regularly, it’s a valuable source of information that can be helpful in making decisions in many areas of the business. Here are three ways feedback should be used at your credit union.From member to credit union: If you want to provide your members with the best possible products and services to meet the needs in their lives, you need to listen to them. Members have problems, and it’s your job to help solve them. Giving the member what they want is a great way to build loyalty and trust, and feedback is a great way to know if you’re members are satisfied with what you’re providing.From employee to manager: Employees see things you don’t see in the day to day processes in your office. Employees keep things running. If you want your ship to sail as smooth as possible, you need to listen to your employees. Do they have the tools they need to succeed? Could processes be changed to improve the way things work? Listen to your employees. When they feel like their voice matters, they’ll feel valued and appreciated.From manager to employee: Employees want to feel valued. If your team doesn’t feel that you appreciate the great work they do, it doesn’t provide them with the urge to work hard to accomplish those things. On the flip side, if they’re not performing to the level you’d like, they want you to tell them. When a project is successful, let them know it. When they know where they stand, they’ll be inspired to work hard and do amazing things for you.last_img read more

Man City’s motivation against Real will be ‘immense’, says Zidane

Posted on by

first_imgReal Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane on Saturday said that he is expecting Manchester City’s motivation to be “immense” when the two sides meet in the Champions League following the announcement of the English side’s two-season ban from European competitions.UEFA on Friday said that City would be suspended from the next two editions of the Champions League for “serious” financial fair-play breaches, although the Premier League champions have said they will appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).Real host Pep Guardiola’s City in their last-16 first leg on February 26, with the return game at the Etihad on March 17. Topics : But Zidane is wary of a City outfit who have won the Premier League in each of the last two campaigns, amassing 100 and 98 points respectively.”It’s a rival who are going to be very, very difficult, it’s a very big team,” added the Frenchman, who led Real to three consecutive European Cup triumphs from 2015-2018.Real Madrid leads Barcelona, who host third-placed Getafe on Saturday, by three points in the Spanish title race.Man City plays their first game since being hit by the European suspension and 30-million-euro ($32.5 million) fine against West Ham in a Premier League game on Wednesday, postponed from last weekend by bad weather.center_img “For what has just happened, their motivation will be immense,” said Zidane ahead of La Liga leaders Real’s match against Celta Vigo on Sunday.”I’m not going to go into what happened, what is going to happen…”It’s a team anyway, who will be a difficult opponent, knowing also how they have been doing in the Premier League. So they will have extra motivation.”City lie 22 points adrift of runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool and Guardiola has admitted that his reign in Manchester will be considered a “failure” if he fails to lead the team to the Champions League title.last_img read more

Saints Grab Late Winner to End Arsenal’s Unbeaten Run

Posted on by

first_imgPREMIERSHIPCharlie Austin’s 85th-minute header clinched 3-2 victory for Southampton Manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl, on his home debut and ended Arsenal’s 22-match unbeaten run.In a see-sawing encounter, the hosts took the lead after 20 minutes as Danny Ings muscled home a header from Matt Targett’s cross. Henrikh Mkhitaryan nodded in shortly after for Arsenal, following good work by Alex Iwobi and Nacho Monreal – but Ings struck again just before the break.Nathan Redmond’s floated cross was precise and Ings cushioned a looping effort into the far corner.Arsenal turned the screw in the second half and restored parity as Mkhitaryan’s shot deflected in off Jannik Vestergaard.The Gunners had their chances with Alex McCarthy impressing in the home goal, but Southampton were dangerous on the break and Shane Long had a goal rightly ruled offside before providing a teasing cross for Austin’s winner.The victory takes Southampton out of the relegation zone and up to 17th.At the final whistle, Austrian Hasenhuttl – nicknamed the ‘Klopp of the Alps’ during his spell at previous club RB Leipzig – celebrated on the pitch with his players before whipping up more decibels from the home support.With rivals Chelsea winning away at Brighton, Arsenal are now three points adrift of the top four.Earlier in the week, Hasenhuttl had sent free drinks vouchers to Southampton’s season ticket-holders to mark his first game at St Mary’s. His accompanying letter promised an “intensive and very hard-working” environment and his players responded by trumping Arsenal’s quality with industry and tenacity.Ings, whose last headed Premier League goal was for Liverpool in Brendan Rodgers’ final match in charge back in October 2015, looked a potent aerial threat, finding space in between Arsenal’s three-man defence to score his two goals.Also heartening for a team at the wrong end of the table, the Saints defence was galvanised.Jan Bednarek typified their whole-hearted commitment, sliding in to steal the ball as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was poised to put Arsenal ahead in the first half.Hasenhuttl lived every moment on the touchline, visibly reminding himself to stay off the pitch as he celebrated Ings’ first, before ultimately giving way to his emotion and sprinting on to join his players at the final whistle.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Men’s, women’s hockey bring 4 titles to Madison

Posted on by

first_imgThe men\’s hockey team celebrates their 2006 NCAA National Championship.[/media-credit]Change and success were the themes for Wisconsin’s hockey programs this decade. Both the men’s and women’s teams introduced new head coaches for the 2002-03 seasons, and the teams won a combined four national titles.The 2000s saw the Wisconsin hockey family gain a new member, as the women’s program began with the 1999-2000 season and quickly became the school’s most successful team.The legacy Badger Bob Johnson started in the ’60s with the men’s team was continued after his son Mark took over behind the women’s bench. The UW women won national titles in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and lost in the championship game in 2008. Wisconsin’s four consecutive appearances in the national title game are an NCAA record.Since 2000, the women have lost just 57 games, and Johnson is the winningest active Division I coach by winning percentage (.815). Johnson’s teams are 210-39-22-3, with three WCHA regular season and playoff titles each.Johnson saw arguably two of the greatest women’s hockey players ever go through Wisconsin in Sara Bauer and Jessie Vetter. Bauer scored the 10th-most career points in D-I history, netting 72 (24-48-72) during the 2006-07 season. Vetter owns almost every NCAA goaltending mark, ranking first in save percentage (.941), wins (91) and shutouts (39). She finished her collegiate career second to only fellow Badger Christine Dufour in goals against average (1.19 to 1.09).Wisconsin’s all-time points leader, Mike Eaves, took over the men’s team from Jeff Seuer and wasted little time in replicating his predecessor’s success. Eaves is 154-116-36 as the team’s head coach with one national title and four NCAA appearances.The men’s program saw its share of quality players in the 2000s as well. Goaltender Bernd Bruckler was named a First-Team All-American in 2004 — UW’s first goaltender to make the first team since 1980. In Dany Heatley and Kyle Turris, the Badgers had their highest-drafted players ever, Heatley going second overall and Turris third. Defenseman Jamie McBain was the 2009 WCHA Player of the Year, and forward Joe Pavelski followed up a successful UW career by playing for the San Jose Sharks.A banner year for both programs, Wisconsin became the first school to win national titles in both men’s and women’s hockey in 2006. The women went 36-4-1, defeating rival Minnesota 3-0 in the title game. The men posted their seventh 30-win season, beating Boston College at the Bradley Center 2-1 en route to a 30-10-3 record.With the dominance of the women’s team and continued success of the men, Wisconsin established itself as one of — if not — the premiere hockey school of the 2000s. Who can argue with four combined NCAA championships in five appearances?last_img read more
