    Episodes 1 - 10

  • Episode 01| Training Isn't Enough

    There are so many corporate trainings but they only scratch the surface and then everything goes back to the way it was. There has to be a follow-up system to engage people in getting the most out of any training. Do fewer training topics with a series and built in follow up. If you are going to say something is important to the organization then management has to be willing to allow people to dedicate time to re-enforcing it.

    In this episode we cover budgets and training; training curves; information overload; millennials and training; effective training in SMB’s; and building trust through training.

  • Episode 02 | Leveraging the Power of Listening

    Listening is a pervasive part of everyday life both at home and at work. We spend more time listening than we do talking, and listening is the critical component to effective communication. Yet when it comes to skill development, listening tends to take a back seat to flashier aspects of communication—like presentation skills. This podcast focuses on effective listening techniques and gaining a better understanding of the message that is being conveyed.

     

    In this podcast participants, will gain some insights to help answer the following: How well do I prepare, monitor, and correct my concentration so that I stay focused? How well do I build a complete and accurate understanding of the speaker’s message? Do I listen to others as I would have them listen to me? What are my strengths and areas for improvement as a listener? Additionally, how can I become a better listener?

  • Episode 06 | Measuring Organizational Culture: Identifying Attributes to Keep and Change​

    Organizational culture is a key driver of success. It impacts how leaders lead, office design, what is expected of people, and, ultimately, the experience people have with the organization. However, organizations rarely think about culture as a strategic tool and design the culture they wish to have. Rather, they do one-off projects like a leadership development class or introducing a new benefit and hope things get better without any metrics assessed as part of the design and with no overarching goal for change.

     

    Best practice organizations measure various aspects of their culture and strategically design how they should be. They do this in the context of the organizations history, identity, and strategies. In this podcast, we discuss what culture is and why it’s important, strategies for measuring organizational culture, and cultural change and adaptability strategies.
