Monday 06/29/2020 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM Add to calendar
Workplace Application:
Key factors affect an organization’s level of openness and candor and the positiveness or toxicity of its culture. 

Culture is as simple and complicated as this:  It’s the way we do things around here, the processes we don’t question and the questions we don’t ask. This session explores what’s needed to build and manage a culture of constant candor, so your people can hear and be heard, feel safe taking risks, and speak up. Learn about the five building blocks needed to create, not kill, a culture of candor throughout your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to decide what behaviors and values you’re hiring for and understand that every step of the hiring process is sending signals.  Are you hiring the people you want?
  • Explore the importance of knowing how and when to question a process.
  • Understand what’s needed to bridge the gap between what you and your people are doing every day and the ultimate vision of the organization.
  • Learn how to build a performance culture that supports your ultimate vision and influences the culture you want to see more of.
  • Know why you need to sweat the small stuff when it comes to the actions and behaviors you reward, tolerate or punish.
