    How to Expose Your Company Culture to Successfully Attract New Employees
    Evert-Jan De Kort, Head of Brand Strategy & Founding Partner | mad about you Recorded: May 5 2020 61 mins
    How to improve the candidate experience and your overall Employer Brand Strategy in times when employees can make or break your reputation?

    Not so long ago, people were used to looking for a job that matched their skills and professional interests. These days however things have changed quite a bit and expectations about work have become much more intertwined with life.

    In today's digital age, we see people actively taking control over their work life. Employers adapt their people processes and technologies to accommodate for 'work becoming fluid'. Today’s employees want something more: meaning, purpose. A reason to live work well. They expect to enjoy the feeling and conviction that what they do matters.

    Candidates who consider applying for a job, are more than ever looking for information about the company and the people working there. The answer they are looking for is: “Can I identify myself with that company, and the people who work there?” Hence, attracting people with success to your company requires a well-considered employer culture at your company; the candidate experience starts from the inside.

    A company culture that encourages transparency, pride and ambassadorship is brought to life in a clear Employer Brand Story and Values. There are 4 conditions for an Employer Brand Story to work: it has to be True, Meaningful, Inspiring and Engaging.

    In this talk we will further explore the perspectives of the so-called work-life balance, learn the pitfalls and strengths of culture & values, and look at how some soul-searching inside your company is key to get outside talent in.
  • Human Flourishing for Empowering High Growth Cultures
    Human Flourishing for Empowering High Growth Cultures
    Tony Holmwood, Culture Strategy & Change Facilitator, Outperf4m Recorded: May 5 2020 61 mins
    For a person, flourishing is the ability to grow as a human being through good times and through life struggles. In the process, they seek to live lives of meaning and aspire to fulfill their potential. William James, the founder of modern psychology stated that the greatest discovery of his generation is that human beings can alter their lives by ultimately altering their perceptions and attitudes.

    Emerging developments in the field of neuroscience, moral/social psychology and behavioural ethics, are challenging our understanding of the ‘rational human.’ While we may have choices, collective social forces easily eclipse values such as personal integrity. The reason is our need for ‘social belonging’ influences both behaviour and mindset. Research supports 50-70% of an organisation's culture is influenced by leadership behaviour. But for employees to flourish, HR and leaders may need to change their mindset to inspire future pathways and rally employees behind a bold vision.

    In his book “Best Behaviour”, Tony Holmwood uses behavioural modelling and research to prove how environmental perceptions and social connection influences self-value. In this presentation, Tony examines how by engaging, motivating and empowering employees, HR and leaders can coach:

    - Job characteristics, circumstances like having more autonomy and job security for positive personality change.
    - Environmental perceptions by creating open, safe, secure workplaces that have a profound effect on employee self-control and confidence, wellbeing, productivity and engagement.
    - With reference to his behavioural development framework, how aligning behavioural learning to functional and professional development objectives will supercharge growth.

  • It's not personal, just business
    It's not personal, just business
    Steve Logan - FISM Jul 7 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    One of the hardest elements of the sales process is 'the close'.

    Why is that?

    Now, provided you’ve followed the correct process, therefore practically your sound, it can only be your emotions stopping you:

    Is it the anticipation of the deal? You’ve built the proposal, you’ve chased the client for months, you’ve researched them like you were Columbo and now the excitement of landing them is palpable.

    Is it the pressure of missing out? The boss has already told you that this is big, you know this is big, in fact, it's the biggest deal you’ve ever been involved with (Could be financially, emotionally or practically).

    Or is it personal? Is it the fear of rejection, the fear of not being wanted, the fear that after all this time “You’re still not good enough for them?”

    Let’s ask those questions and reveal some answers which could support you and your teams moving forward.

    Takeaways

    1. Provided you’ve followed the correct sales process, it’s never no, it’s not enough information or not today.

    2. No isn’t a bad word, it’s telling you, to be better!

    3. If it is a no, ask yourself “Are they the right client for me?”

    4. When it’s a “no”, don’t be afraid to ask why.

    5. Don’t be afraid to you, trust your process, trust yourself and trust your gut!

    Facing Your Fear of Moving Forward

    Have you ever been so afraid of failing at something that you decided not to try it at all? Or has a fear of failure meant that, subconsciously, you undermined your own efforts to avoid the possibility of a larger failure?

    Many of us have probably experienced this at one time or another. The fear of failing can be immobilizing – it can cause us to do nothing, and therefore resist moving forward. But when we allow fear to stop our forward progress in life, we're likely to miss some great opportunities along the way.

    In thiswebinar, we'll examine fear of failure: what it means, what causes it, and how to overcome it to enjoy true success in work, and in life.
  • Regret
    Regret
    Hosted by Adam Brook - featuring Simon Scott Nelson ISM Fellow (Wellity) Aug 4 2020 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Turn your regrets into the fuel you need to succeed

    We all have regrets, but what separates the champions from those who are lost is how we cope with that regret and move forward through our struggles. There are a lot of reasons we commit to decisions that we later regret, but almost all of them can be reconciled in some shape. It takes a little honest grit and determination, though, and most of all it takes an unflinching willingness to do what’s right for yourself.

  • Recruiting Basics – Where’s Waldo: Finding top talent in the crowd
    Recruiting Basics – Where’s Waldo: Finding top talent in the crowd
    Lori Kleiman SPHR, SHRM-SCP Sep 24 2020 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Recruiting has to be more than just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.
    Learning Objectives:
    · Options for filling the candidate pipeline
    · Creating an interview experience that gets the information you need
    · Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
    · Development in background and credit check compliance
    · Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter
