    Personal Branding: So your next client or job finds you Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Sep 19 2018 64 mins
    What is personal branding? What you are projecting to the world online and off -- and what people are saying about you. How do you maintain your authentic self and be someone easily found and regarded as a (very hire-able) thought leader in your field? That's what today's conversation is about, talking to five women who have built their own businesses (and brands!) around some aspect of personal branding and personal growth.

    Who should attend? This is a no-brainer for anyone really because we are all looking to improve how our work is perceived and how we can convert that perception into more work and better networking.

    Who is grabbing a cuppa and having a conversation around personal branding — that is geared towards women but could benefit men too? This episode features the following branding goddesses:
    - Diana Berryman on social media and content marketing
    - Remi Erogbogbo on style and beauty, finding the right color to wear for your next important interview or meeting
    - Vibeke Foss on her niche building websites for female entrepreneurs
    - Sophie Russell-Ross on how to create your own website and build a freelance brand

    And all of these amazing women on growing a business, building a niche, and promoting yourself as a brand, online and off!
  • Employee retention: Language training makes workers want to stay
    Employee retention: Language training makes workers want to stay Melanie Rogers, Jack Marmorstein, Chris Brotherson Recorded: Sep 6 2018 60 mins
    Global organizations are recognizing the massive cost of employee turnover. L&D leaders are, in turn, investing more in employee development to drive increases in employee engagement and retention. From implementing English language training for hourly workers, or advanced English for limited English proficiency (LEP) employees looking to advance in a business setting, to offering world language training for global managers, L&D leaders are offering language learning to increase engagement and retain colleagues.
    A recent Rosetta Stone study reports that 80% of employees who participated in language training felt more positively towards their employer, and 66% felt more engaged with their work. In some organizations, employers have been able to attribute a 19% reduction in employee turnover to language learning. Join this webinar to see how this could look within your organization.
    You’ll Learn:
    •Opportunities within a global organization to improve employee retention with language learning programs
    •The benefits of mobile/technology-based learning and live tutoring as a combined approach
    •Success stories from organizations that improved their retention rates with language
    •What a language learning program looks like within a global organization
  • Creating a Coaching Culture
    Creating a Coaching Culture Suzanne Saxe-Roux, Right Management & Valerie Marple, P&G Recorded: Sep 6 2018 60 mins
    It’s clear that converging economic, technological, and demographic changes are creating talent challenges for organizations, leaders and individual contributors. Skilled individuals, particularly those in short supply, have greater leverage to dictate terms of employment to their potential employers—how, where and when they want to work. So, how does an organization engage such an employee while meeting its own business objectives and goals? The answer lies in building a coaching culture.

    While meaningful work connects employees to an organization and its success, it is not enough. To foster deeper engagement and productivity, that work has to be embedded in a culture that invests in employees’ development, enables learning and empowerment, and supports individual accountability. Creating a coaching culture that encourages learning and development will help an organization attract, engage and retain the brightest talent, while also encouraging all employees to take charge of their careers.

    In this webinar we will provide insights into the journey toward building a coaching culture including a model to better understand where you are in this journey, best practices for building a culture, and practical recommendations. To bring this to life, we have a special guest from Procter and Gamble who will be sharing highlights from the organization's own cultural transformation journey including decisions around how and where to build coaching skills internally as well as when to leverage external coaches.

    We look forward to having you join this thought-provoking webinar!

  • What’s your conflict style?
    What’s your conflict style? John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant Recorded: Aug 23 2018 32 mins
    All of us have experienced conflict at some point, at home, at work, maybe at school or elsewhere – and usually it is seen as a bad thing, something that is disruptive when it comes to the workplace. Yet some people find conflict exciting, energising, something that clears the air. We all have different approaches to conflict, and if we understood these, if we know how we usually react, we can flex our conflict style and achieve better outcomes. And maybe we can help others to do so too. John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, discusses OPP’s research into conflict and introduces the TKI (Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Indicator) and shows how it can be used to create positive outcomes from conflict.

  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Aug 8 2018 62 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.

  • Neurodiversity: What is it and how can you cultivate it at your organization?
    Neurodiversity: What is it and how can you cultivate it at your organization? Jennifer Riggins Nov 28 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Neurodiversity is often associated with the autism spectrum but can include an array of conditions affecting the mind and brain. 70 to 90% of these individuals are unemployed or underemployed, yet they can bring a lot of value to an organization, including skill sets in high demand by employers.

    Overall, a neurodiversity program at an organization is dedicated to embracing diversity of thought process and background as a way to lead to a more successful and innovative company. Companies like SAP, Google, Salesforce, HP, Ford, JP Morgan, and Microsoft have already reformed their human resources processes in order to recruit neurodiverse talent. Would your organization benefit from becoming more welcoming of neurodiversity? What does that sort of initiative look like?

    This week's episode is for anyone who works with or could be hiring someone with neurodiversity and who is interested in finding ways to hire, onboard and support those with cognitive differences.

    This week's cuppa we sit down with those that work in and with neurodiversity to learn from their experiences to figure out ways to enrich our workforce. This episode of WIT: Women in Touch comes after many questions about this topic that we couldn't get to during our most popular episode on diversity and pay gaps, and fits in with recurring themes like designing the career you love, mentoring, and flexible work. So bring your cup of something and your questions and join these wonderful women!
