A Massive Shift Is Taking Place In The Business World

In most companies, up to eighty percent of employees are working in teams. And yet, most teams are nowhere near as effective as they could be.

They’re often divided by tensions, if not outright dissension, and dysfunctional teams drain employees’ energy, enthusiasm and creativity.

Join Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton as they share proven tactics managers can use to build cohesive, productive teams, despite the distractions and challenges every business is facing.

Sdrian & Chester will explore:

  • The findings of their 850,000-person research study, outlining the most effective ways women manage their teams—showing fascinating gender and generational differences in the workforce that smart managers should consider
  • Practical ways to address the real challenges today’s team managers are facing, such as the rise of Millennials, an increasing speed of change, a growing number of global and virtual teams, and friction created by working cross-functionally
  • How to enhance individual engagement; ways to promote healthy discord and spark innovation on a team; and techniques to unify customer focus and build bridges across functions, cultures and distance

Do You Teach Learners How To Handle Bad Errors?

Most training and learning programs teach perfect answers, procedures, methods,  policies, information, etc. This is well and good. But do we teach people how to make the right actions, better decisions, more reliable choices, and handle catastrophic errors?

Most of the time, we don’t. The severe impacts are shown in slow or no actions, failures in judgment, errors in decision making, impulsive actions and risky actions. All of these impact the organizations financially.

In this webinar, Ray will discuss:

  • Why is it a problem to teach learners the “correct ways of doing things?”
  • Why is it important that workers and learners learn beyond the “what” to the “why”?
  • What is Deep Dive Thinking and how do the Modern Learners learn?
  • How do Deep Dive Thinkers continuously learn while at work?
  • How does Deep Dive Thinking widen the application of skills and knowledge in error areas of unknown situations?
  • How do you set up and add Deep Dive Thinking into your learning and training programs?

There are few instances in the employee lifecycle as momentous as the first few months on the job.

New hires promise productivity when joining a firm, and bring with them a contagious enthusiasm and energy.

An effective onboarding program helps these individuals feel more connected to their workplace from the start, driving higher engagement and productivity.

Despite the benefits, recent research, conducted by HCI in partnership with Kronos Incorporated, has shown that onboarding is a missed opportunity for many employers.

Three-fourths of survey respondents report that onboarding practices are underutilized and nearly a quarter of organizations have no onboarding strategy or process for internal hires.

Join Dr. Jenna Filipkowski (LinkedIn profile) & Stacey Kervin  (LinkedIn profile) as they will review:

  • Why onboarding is a critical component for employee engagement and new hire retention
  • Results of our recent study exploring the elements of effective onboarding programs and their organizational outcomes
  • ​The 3 P’s (People, Performance, Paperwork) of onboarding you can’t overlook
  • How to design onboarding programs with specific goals and success measurements
  • How to delegate tasks cross functionally to ease burdens on the manager and smaller teams

The momentum of new hires is a force to be reckoned with, and it is possible to sustain this throughout and beyond the traditional onboarding timeline.

Register for this webinar to learn how to harness the excitement and drive of new hires, and leverage it to propel your organization and talent forward.
