Company culture is a hot topic these days. Everyone talks about the importance of company culture these days, but what is anyone actually doing about it?
Companies typically fall back on articles crying generational differences, and adapting hiring practices to Millennials or incoming Generation Z, abandoning Baby Boomers or Gen X in the process.
In this webinar, we’ll argue companies are asking the wrong question. Understanding generational differences is only part of the battle. Companies should spend time understanding their own company culture and their employees’ personas. Like a Marketing team’s buyer personas, recruiters should be reverse engineering your existing employees’ personas to determine your ideal culture fit.
We’ll share how we brought in an outside firm to evaluate ourselves here at Jobvite and how we incorporated the findings in our hiring processes.
Generational gaps absolutely exist and affect a company’s culture, but if you’re able to create ideal candidate personas, you’ll be on track to hire the right people for the job and your company.
Today’s concept of a manager is about people development, being supportive to a variety of needs, having techniques to help you manage your own mood, put others in ‘good humour’, be resilient, self-motivated and motivate others amongst other more technical skills is a must. Being the ‘go-to manager’ that is approachable and supportive when others need you are all part of the skills needed in today’s working environment. Laughology understands the role of the manager has changed, in fact even using the term manager seems old fashioned. Team leaders, people leaders or even just leaders seems more apt. It’s all about knowing how to stay on-top in order to keep your team on-top, happy, supported and feeling good. Understanding more about the brain and how it works helps people and organisations increase their ability to recognise their potential and ability, to take on challenges, persist and develop. We call this Growth-mind set, developing people by encouraging high –expectations and supporting them through this process.
Developing and supporting happy teams (what-ever you like to call yourself) starts with developing the individual. At Laughology we understand and have researched the principles of happiness and how to create teams and individuals that are emotionally flexible. We understand happiness is about understanding human beings, not about processes and systems but developing humans to help them reach their potential and in turn they will commit to helping the organisation reach theirs.
Teamwork is seen as a business prerequisite, but as we know not all teams operate at the same level. This is true at the top of an organisation as it is elsewhere in the business. Establishing the basics around clarity, team goals and dynamics will get you good teamwork and of course good results. The difference between a good team and a high performing team is small, but the results can be up to a 3 times as much. So what are the levers and what could a team and team leader do to develop them into a great team?
This webinar aims to answer two questions:
•What are the characteristics of a High Performance Team?
•What can a team actually do to become one?
Joining the C-suite requires a different skill set then being just a great HR professional. Do you struggle with getting your CEO's attention? Do you feel stuck in compliance and administration? How do you expand your perspective and get the recognition you deserve? The answers lie in taking control of your own career. This session will focus on what you need to do to be the strategic executive who is action-oriented and embraces technology to drive your strategic plan forward. This session is designed to empower you to integrate HR with the rest of the organization – and give you the voice to take your career anywhere you want to go!
Today’s fast moving, highly competitive marketplace is placing unprecedented pressure on organisations and individuals to develop and change. From taking advantage of technology innovations to capitalising on the opening up of global markets, protecting ourselves from economic uncertainties to understanding the expectations of our customers and workers; the need for strong leadership has never been greater. Why? Because everything rises and falls on leadership.
And leadership is not about position or job title. Leadership is about the person. Strong leaders give hope and confidence. They provide the optimism that leads to success and achievement, an optimism that can so easily be affected by uncertainty and change. Leadership is a skill that can be learnt and developed.
In this webinar Simon Jackson will share his experience and insight that has been gained over many years working with leading global brands on transformation initiatives that have focused on leadership development and change programmes. We will explore the essential elements of leadership and how our behavior so significantly affects those around us. We will look at the inner game of leadership to understand how our own thinking may be holding us back.
If you are an experienced leader, how do you know how you are doing? Whether you are an experienced leader or you are aspiring to lead others, we all have the ability to grow and become better leaders.
