Master's Connection breakfast talk to focus on managing employee motivation for change

From the College of Business' Graduate Business Career Services

Today's businesses are experiencing continuous change – mergers, acquisitions, downsizing, new market expansion, product introductions. Employees need to be educated, motivated and inspired to change behavior and realize the full potential of the company's initiatives.

Kathy Notthingham, director of industry analyst relations for Lawson Software, will speak at the next Master's Connection. She will talk about key issues and obstacles that inhibit change and offer advice to effectively motivate and inspire employee commitment to change.

The program will be held from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8, in Room 201, Opus Hall, Minneapolis. Registration is $5 before Feb. 3 or $10 afterward or at the door. Call (651) 962-8807 for more information or visit the Graduate Business Career Services registration Web site.

The monthly events include a light breakfast, guest speaker, opportunity to present a 30-second "personal commercial" and additional networking time.
