Re-Visioning the Way We Work: A Heroic Journey

Focus

To succeed as a leader you must have both vision and focus. Leaders are the power engines of an organization and as such, drive economic growth. What are the links between corporate culture and key organizational objectives? How do your vision and values translate into measurable outcomes? If an organization’s success depends on the talents of its people, senior executives must find ways to invest in human capital. One way to do this is by creating the right environment for valued employees. In this session, you will gain insight into the journey required to move toward a post-pandemic new world of work.

Half-Day and Full-Day Programs Include:

  1. The importance of pattern recognition
  2. The need to take a design-driven approach in order to retain valuable human capital and increase productivity
  3. The importance of building a collaborative organizational culture
  4. The need for analytics: measurement of your corporate culture and the success of your efforts
  5. Why common values and an environment of trust provide an fast track to an effective brand and competitive advantage
  6. Avoid the most common cultural traps that drive an organization down

Values-Based Leadership

Focus

Many organizational leaders understand the value of values in aligning behaviour with organizational goals. However, few understand the dynamic nature of values or how to manage the way values link together. Every individual, team and organization exhibits an interrelated set of three types of values: foundation values, focus or day-to-day operational values, and the “vision” values that exert a pull toward the future.
These values represent a set of both conscious and unconscious priorities that drive organizational outcomes. Gaps in this set can result in vulnerabilities to both internal and external pressures: a ‘house of cards.’ Understanding the values continuum results in sound personal, group and organizational structures and guides effective decision-making under pressure.
You will be introduced to values by first working with individual (your own), and then with group, and finally with organizational values.

Half-Day and Full-Day Programs Include:

  1. Discover more about yourself as a leader and your unique ability to lead
  2. Acquire an enhanced understanding of the difference between espoused values and values-in-action
  3. Build a working knowledge of values and how to apply that knowledge your own behaviour and goals
  4. Build a working knowledge of generational diversity
  5. Develop a personal strategic plan for working with values

ReVisioning Retirement

Focus:

Approximately half of our current workforce is facing retirement. In some organizations, numbers are higher. How can we re-vision the idea of retirement that permits retention of organizational knowledge as well as meet the needs of those who wish to retire? Our quick fix – one-step civilization provides us with every convenience to get ahead, advance and develop. If this is true, why are so many people voicing dissatisfaction with their lives and where they are? Perhaps we’ve become more focused with the destination rather than the journey. We’ve become distracted with the making of plans, rather than the living of life.

Approaching the second half of life can be a challenge but also provides immense opportunity. Acquiring a clearer understanding of your own journey ultimately provides you with an understanding and respect of the journey of others. This understanding opens the lines of communication and opens new opportunities to engage, collaborate and grow – in areas of your life.

This workshop focuses on methods to motivate and develop alternative retirement plans that fit both the organization and the employee. Learn how re-visioning retirement can enhance an employer of choice program. To re-vision retirement means to re-vision a new beginning, perhaps even crafting a new career.

Half-Day and Full-Day Programs Include:

  1. Learn how to extend your brand through alternative retirement programs
  2. Identify and target key employees for knowledge retention
  3. Build knowledge banks and human capital
  4. Enhance both your employee and customer experience
