And is your team prepared for the ride? Tomorrow’s Talent … Success comes down to talent. Hiring the right talent. And supporting and developing existing talent to ensure the organization’s workforce is agile, innovative, and constantly learning new skills. But doing all that in a world of artificial intelligence, where robots perform many of the functions that middle managers do, and where everything is connected will make the trainer’s role look very different to today. Will trainers even have a role? Think about this: Dubai Police are using a robot to patrol streets and plan to staff 25% of their workforce with robots.

Demystifying Employee Engagement
How To Finally Close the Giant Gap Between Strategy and Results
  
Engagement relates directly to the level of ownership, accountability and responsibility that a person takes towards performing certain work expectations and obligations. Lower engaged workforces exhibit declining morale, weaker motivation, decreased capacity for decision-making, and ultimately a lower commitment to personal health and wellbeing. According to the Gallup Organization, a mere 30 percent of US workers are actively engaged in their jobs, and 70 percent are at some level of disengagement, costing businesses an astounding $550 billion per year in underperformance. In that same study, 87% of executive leadership surveyed feel engagement is very important BUT less than 25% have a plan in place to improve it. Many leaders either ignore or simply have no idea how to address this significant organizational challenge. The good news? There’s a way forward that works. It’s time to move from inspiration to reality. Join us as we unpack specific steps y...

Trust & Credibility - Lost "In A Moment" with the Wrong Choice
Management's Fulcrum Point for Culture Change
  
Trust and management credibility hang in the balance every moment of the day - in every meeting, in every communication, in management's reaction to a problem... we could go on. Financial losses are tied to trust and credibility. So are problem resolution and employee retention. Understanding what make them "swing" is a skill that management CANNOT AFFORD to live without. Organizational Trust is established via management credibility (meeting expectations, keeping promises). Because the connection between trust and performance is poorly understood, trust is undervalued by most management teams. It may even be viewed as an “optional” culture characteristic that management can choose or not choose to pursue. The truth is that, without trust, - Companies cannot achieve their improvement goals. - Change is slow and becomes a game that everyone plays but nobody wins. - Important problems go unsolved for years. - Management works harder at maintaining their power than empowe...
