    The more we talk about self-doubt, the more people will think, "Maybe not all our leaders have that confidence I expect, and if I have self-doubt then that's okay too."' Jacinda Ardern New Zealand Prime Minister, December 2020. Everyone has doubt. Whether it’s thinking that you don’t have enough or the right information to make a decision, you are hesitant to speak up in a meeting because you aren’t sure of your opinion, or you are questioning your ability to get a job done, doubt can cripple our confidence, hamper our effectiveness at work, and prevent us from achieving our professional goals. However, we are hardwired to doubt, and our professional happiness and effectiveness can be greatly improved if we stop thinking of doubt as the enemy, and see doubt as an ally that can drive growth and development. Think of the number of times that you did something – a new hobby, a new job, a decision at work. Did you go into it with 100% certainty? Most likely, you had some doubt, uncertainty, or something that you didn’t know. Seeking better or more information can be helpful at times, but chasing certainty is futile. Regarding certainty, many leaders would say “if you’re that clear, you’ve probably missed something.” Successful leaders learn how to use to doubt to protect against this false sense of security. In this discussion, you will: - Understand what happens to the brain when doubt and uncertainty occur and how that impacts our actions and reactions - Learn how to turn doubt from a source of anxiety to a source of focus and insight - Identify how to channel your doubt to increase your humility and curiosity.

    This session will discuss considerations for using social media in hiring the right way, whether you conduct it in-house or outsource it or use it at all. In a COVID-19 and Post-COVID-19 world, more people are working from home, with easier access to social media and an increased need for interaction and collaboration, even if that interaction is done virtually. Social media has become the fastest and easiest way to participate in social networking and/or share content. Searching social media reveals a number of red flags that may not necessarily show up on a traditional criminal background check such as intolerance, discriminatory behavior, potentially violent conduct or sexually explicit material. Social Media search providers also provide a host of benefits including redacting protected class information and using filters to flag certain behaviors to allow employers to focus on only relevant business-related online behavior. When it comes time to use the information, a series of National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) cases have highlighted what employers should do if they are going to use Social Media as part of a hiring practice. Attendees should come away from this presentation armed with a better understanding of using social media in hiring including whether this is a screening tool they want to conduct in house or outsource based on what is available from vendors or if at all. Attendees should also have a general sense of what categories of information can be used in relevant to hiring an employee. Lastly, attendees should have a better sense of how vendors are approaching social media searches to provide filtered and compliant reports.
