Workplace Application:
You will learn a radically different approach to core HR philosophies such as engagement, change management, and accountabilityand will leave tools that will actually work in your modern workplace. 

Recent research conducted by Cy Wakeman in conjunction with the Futures Company, has discovered that rather than driving performance and creating efficiencies for the organization, conventional HR strategies and philosophies are actually fueling drama in the workplace. In fact, this research indicated that under currently prescribed HR philosophy and strategic best practices, up to three months per year of each employee's time – potentially billions of dollars annually in the U.S. alone – is wasted in drama. This session will provide you with tools you can immediately implement to help your teams create good mental processes allowing them to redirect energy wasted on drama to instead produce amazing results. After all, our natural state when all the drama has been removed is innovation. This session will help you:

  • Discover strategies for eradicating entitlement with great tools such as the Engaged Action Planning Tool, and the Negative Brainstorming Tool which changes the energy of entire group meetings from “Why we can't” to “How we could.”
  • Develop highly effective mental processes in your teams that hold all team members accountable to quality, safety and excellent patient care. 
  • Uncover modern approaches to engagement and change management strategies. 
  • Learn from two specific case studies showcasing large wins in organizations that have re-organized HR and Learning and Development.
