Performance and Bottom Line Results
by Rebecca Wagner
Rebecca Wagner, a talent management specialist and Certified Predictive Index Master Trainer, from Accord Management Systems, Inc., will discuss how organizations can achieve greater success by maximizing their greatest asset, their people.

Rebecca coaches leaders to use simple, elegant tools to support each stage of the work cycle from Attracting the right candidates, Hiring based on Job-Fit, Onboarding, Managing, Developing, and building Succession Paths. She helps clients minimize the risks associated with bad hires because no company can afford to get this wrong.

About Rebecca Wagner
Rebecca Wagner studied psychology and music composition in college where she began drawing connections between behavior and the business world. When you hear an orchestra tune their instruments before a performance, their goal is achieved when you can no longer hear a singular player, when they achieve a cohesive sound. In a company, the same theories of resonance and harmony exist. Rebecca helps organizations achieve this harmony by implementing elegant and simple tools that lead to stronger systems of accountability. She coaches executives (conductors) to provide the values, vision, tempo, and pace to the organization. Then she teaches them to provide clear expectations to their managers (first chairs). When teams run more cohesively and autonomously towards the mutual vision, they are freed up to work on the important tasks, like making an impact. Leaders call Rebecca when they are not getting the traction they want. They have bad turnover, lack of organizational structure and trust. Others may have a fantastic culture, and can’t afford to lose it. She helps leaders work ON their business instead of IN their business. Rebecca has coached leaders in the C-suite, she has used her insights to help hire those leaders and speaks to their organizations at corporate retreats and user conferences. She uses a holistic approach to human capital development to make sure the right people are in the right seats.
Currently the Director of Organizational Development at Accord Management Services, Inc., she has worked at the company in various capacities for a total of four and a half years and now runs the Predictive Index (PI) division. She is a certified consultant in Talent Optimization and a certified PI Master Trainer. In her past life she has sold small commercial and residential solar, and opened a flagship makeup store for a Scandinavian brand here in the U.S. She was an EMT in college volunteering for her local squad. When Rebecca is not guiding her clients to the success they want, she is camping, off-roading, cooking, or tuning pianos.
“Over the years I have encountered many behavioral analysis and organizational development professionals, but never one as well polished and obviously masterful as Rebecca. She not only has the best tools on hand (Predictive Index and others) but she knows how to interpret and effectively apply them for the maximum individual, team and organizational impact. Work closely with her and pay real attention to what she recommends!”

“When Rebecca initially told us about her onboarding process, she said ‘It will feel like drinking from the firehose’. My team and I were excited because we had been looking for a way to become better leaders and really support the people we have invested so much time in. We aren’t looking for a silver bullet and someone to give us ‘Yes/No’ answers, we want to understand Why and How. Well, the fire hose analogy is absolutely true, but I also felt like Rebecca told us she was taking us on a leisurely stroll and it turned out to be quite a challenging hike with switchbacks and rough terrain…At the end of the hike, my Leadership Team and I were gifted an amazing view of our company where we could see all the moving parts working together and plan our next 10 years with stronger intention. Thank you, Rebecca for being our guide.”
