Presented by S. Christian Wheeler, Associate Professor of Marketing
Marketing communications serve the critical functions of educating consumers, increasing awareness, changing evaluations, and spurring purchase decisions. But if no one is paying attention, do they really matter? In this complimentary one-hour webinar, Stanford Graduate School of Business Associate Professor Christian Wheeler will show how and why—despite the considerable creativity and effort poured into their development—many marketing communications fall on deaf ears or fail to influence consumers. He will then present a systematic, psychological approach to effectively structuring the content and timing of marketing communications that you can apply to your own marketing programs.
Presented by Huggy Rao, Atholl McBean Professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resources; Morgan Stanley Director of the Center for Leadership Development and Research; Director of the Managing Talent for Strategic Advantage Executive Program; Codirector of the Customer-Focused Innovation Executive Program
Job design is often dismissed as a matter of writing a job description - but it is more than that. Over the course of this hour-long webinar, Professor Rao will explore how jobs can be designed to unleash the talent of individuals. Job design is a signal to the labor market - how tasks are combined into a job determines who is attracted to the job. Job design also influences how the occupants of a job allocate effort and time. Poorly designed jobs frustrate superiors, subordinates, and of course, the job occupants themselves. Special attention will be devoted to 'star' elements of a job and 'guardian' elements and how they ought to bundled.
