Recruit, Cultivate and Retain Spring Series

May 22, 2023

Recruit, Cultivate and Retain

Announcing the next generation of Recruit, Train and Retain (RTR)! 

Recruit, Cultivate and Retain (RCR), is a new leadership series designed for mid-level managers working in employment and community inclusion service provider agencies. By joining RCR, you will have the opportunity to work with a range of program managers to re-energize, create solutions to complex problems and share expertise.

More specifically you will:

  • Connect with other leaders that are managing employment and day services
  • Deepen and develop relationships across organizations in your community
  • Explore strategies for recruiting and developing talent to meet the needs of the current staffing shortages
  • Continue to build on a rich history of best practices in Washington State employment and community inclusion service delivery
  • Sharpen your understanding of day services culture and your leadership strengths


Session Facilitators will be:  

Cesilee Coulson, Wise, Executive Director

Wally Tablit, RespectAbility, Senior Director of Policy and Workforce Development

Chisa O'Quinn, Wise, Senior Training & TA Manager

Jaimie Laitinen, Wise, Director of Training & TA

In order to provide some flexibility for scheduling, we are offering the RCR series 2 times during the fiscal year.  We ask that you consider the following criteria when selecting your preferred Series:

  • You’ll need to be able to attend the first session
  • If you must miss a session during the series, we would prefer that you have someone identified that will fill in for you so that there is continuity for your organization
  • Assume that you’ll have approximately 1 hour of homework between each session
