Meeting Management: Stop Wasting Time; Start Getting Work Done and Even Have Some Fun
Presented by Marcia Zidle
This webinar enables leaders to improve meeting productivity, to get wider input, to enhance communication and to boost creativity and teamwork.
Ask managers what part of their job they find most taxing and tedious and the answer is sure to come in a loud and unanimous voice – Meetings. Too many, too often with too few results. Nothing seemed to get accomplished; the agenda was unclear; people were late…or didn’t even show up. Let’s face it. Meetings have a bad reputation; they are time wasters. The best you can hope for is to get through them. Right? It doesn’t have to be that way. If the meetings you manage are not working, you can fix them. But only if you understand what it takes to make a meeting work. Learn how to lead meetings that are focused, productive, participative, and even fun!.
Your Organization's Culture: If You Don't Get It Right, Nothing Else Matters
Presented by Marcia Zidle
Get on a Southwest flight to anywhere, buy shoes from Zappos.com, pants from Nordstrom, groceries from Whole Foods, anything from Costco, a Starbucks espresso, or a Double-Double from In N' Out, and you'll get a taste of these brands’ vibrant cultures. Unfortunately, culture is often misunderstood and discounted as a touchy-feely, rather than a bottom line, the component of a business. That’s not the case. As Peter Drucker, the founder of modern management said, “Culture eats strategy for lunch.” Culture is one of the most important business drivers that has to be intentionally set and periodically adjusted to push long-term, sustainable success. It's not good enough just to have an amazing product and a healthy bank balance. The workplace culture can enable a company's success, or be the key to its undoing. What about your company’s culture? Does it inspire and engage or get in your people’s way, slowing and wearing them down? Is it driven by top-down directives or cross-department collaboration? What stories do your people and your customers tell about you? This webinar will show how you can get a good read on the health of your culture.
Also, culture often becomes the focus of attention during periods of organizational change. Mergers and acquisitions, new systems implementations and elaborate initiatives typically fail because organizations become caught in the so-called "jaws of culture” - when the existing culture becomes inappropriate, and hinders rather than supports progress. This webinar will help you understand the power of culture, how it enhances or details change, and what you can do to make culture change work for you.
