Ashley Clayton is currently an Optimization Program Manager at Cro Metrics, a company specializing in data-backed website testing and analytics, but that’s only the most recent tech career shift. She studied Anthropology and Linguistics at the University of Oklahoma but had a tech career find her instead of an academic one. After nearly a decade in Real Estate tech firms in roles across many disciplines, she’s leveraging her experience to help multiple industries and national brands create better user experiences in their digital services.

When it comes to personal branding and resume writing, she’s reinvented herself a few times and would love to share what she’s learned as a hiring manager after writing and reading hundreds of resumes for people wanting to take the next step in their career.

She’s been a guest lecturer and instructor for CTRL+SHIFT and was a recipient of the 2019 OKWIT Outstanding Service Award for her work at events and behind the scenes of OKWIT.

COVID-19 Update

Updated July 2020

 

With the safety of you, your families, and our communities as our top priority, we are modifying our all OKWIT events from in-person events to virtual gatherings. Our Spring Retreat originally scheduled for April 2020 is postponed until further notice.

Visit https://okwomenintech.org/membership/ to learn more about our different levels.   Oklahoma Women in Tech invites OKC area technical professionals (men & women) to our February Networking + Professional Development event on February 26th, 6pm – 8pm at the Cedar Lake Plaza, located at 701 Cedar Lake Blvd. Oklahoma City, OK 73114, Delicious food, drinks and great entertainment all included with your ticket.   TOPIC: Giving and Accepting Actionable Feedback by Linda Clark is the principal in an organizational development coaching and consulting firm specializing in the power of effective team creation and growth, the power of feedback in innovative cultures, and strategic people operations. Her business focuses on peak performance, authenticity, and personal presence as a combination for success for individuals and organizations by highlighting the mindful selection of the best skills for the current situation and applying them with confidence. With nearly twenty years of experience in strategic human resources and organizational development in automotive retail, energy, manufacturing, non-profit segments and more, her reputation includes an operational focus combined with respect and empathy at all levels. She’s the only Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator in Oklahoma, devoted leadership geek, and mom to a 3 year old draft horse named Smooch.   Dare to Lead Facilitator Certification Program is an empirically based training and certification program for leadership and organizational development professionals, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The focus of their training and certification program is courage-building.   The ability to provide actionable feedback, and more importantly, the ability to receive feedback in a way that drives behavior change is a critical hallmark of organizational cultures reflecting innovation and creativity as part of their growth mindset. This competency is relevant to organizational strategy discussions, financial planning and evaluation, operational decisions, and the human resources talent equation. Organizations that value consistent and ongoing feedback show lower turnover, higher employee engagement, increased productivity, healthier safety cultures, and more. This competency ties directly to leadership competencies such as strategic agility, financial acumen, managerial courage, and more. As more companies consider feedback a dynamic, daily, business driver, and less the one-stop annual performance evaluation, it’s important that HR professionals understand the full cycle loop, points of resistance, and how to take people through feedback resistance and into individual and organizational change to impact the success of the organization.   Daily, organizations face feedback challenges when strategic goals are missed, processes or policies prove ineffective, behavioral challenges interrupt opportunities for success, or stakeholder disappointments are realized. Feedback is a financial foundation of organizational culture and success.   Discuss navigation of feedback conversations from an outcome perspective. Identifying resistance and offering support to move through the point of resistance and into change Understanding how personal, relationship and identity triggers influence the feedback conversation and often stall the change entirely Understanding feedback vs. opinion, and understanding how to appropriately respond, drive action, and communicate changes   This event is made possible by our corporate sponsors, Devon Energy, ONE Gas, Coretopia and COX.
