Culture Trumps Everything

Overview:

Organizations are often burdened with mediocre or poorly performing employees – costing billions of dollars a year. This poor performance is often attributed to an employee’s individual qualities or attributes, such as personality, motivation and/or skillsets. However, within the field of psychology, we know that context is a better predictor and controller of behavior than individual attributes – and inside an organization, this “context” is what we also refer to as “corporate culture.” Culture trumps everything."

Corporate culture is very much like a garden – left unattended, a garden will grow all kinds of weeds and plants that can actually choke out the fruits, flowers, and vegetables you want to grow. But, if you spend time on your garden (if you spend time on your culture) picking out the undesirable weeds (i.e. specific behaviors), it becomes a lot easier to grow the fruits, the flowers, and the vegetables you do want to grow. Culture is cultivated just like a garden.

If employees within an organization are goal-oriented, team-focused, and driven by performance, it’s because the culture demands it. Conversely, if an organization has employees that don’t care about goals, don’t care about teams, and don’t care about performance, it’s because the culture allows that, as well. This is the difference between working in your business vs. working on your business. Working on your business means working on your culture because Culture Trumps Everything.

Outline:

In his participant-driven program, Dr. Gustavo Grodnitzky (well known as Dr. Gustavo) will provide participants with actionable information regarding:

• Understanding the profit paradox, classic capitalism vs. social capitalism and their implications

• A clear definition of organizational culture

• Examples of the successes and failures created by organizational culture

• Steps for Creating a Culture of Success: Identifying the four factors which predict success in organizations

Outcomes:

Participants will leave with specific action plans outlining what steps are required, strategically and tactically, to implement their "culture factors" as well as individual steps to maximize employee performance. These steps will be outlined for each member in a readily accessible format such that participants can refer to their plan on a daily and weekly basis.

Ready or Not, Here They Come! Understanding and Motivating the Millennial Generation

 

Overview:

For the first time in the history of mankind, there are four generations in the workforce. There are 35 million Traditionalists and 84 million Baby Boomers, the largest numbers of which began to retire in 2011. There are 68 million Generation Xers and 79 million Millennials, or Generation Y. There will be no escaping the demographic reality that in the very near future, there will be 84 million retiring Baby Boomers, followed by 68 million Gen Xers to replace them. This will create an employee vacuum in the workforce that only the 79 million Gen Yers can fill, increasing demand and competition for Generation Y employees, in addition to increasing the ongoing challenge of working with a multigenerational workforce.

Outline:

In this highly thought-provoking and participant-driven workshop, Dr. Gustavo Grodnitzky, well known as Dr. Gustavo, will provide participants with actionable information regarding:

  • Generational differences.
  • Gen Y challenges.
  • Gen Y strengths.
  • Recruiting and Retaining Gen Y: Implementing five "magnet factors" that attract and keep the bestof Gen Y in your workforce.
  • Strategies and tactical Steps to better manage Gen Y: An six-factor action list.

Dr. Gustavo will identify for each participant’s own organisational "magnet factor" strengths and challenges as well as identify immediate tactical steps they can take to overcome those "magnet factor" challenges. Given the reality of the demographics, every industry will be competing for the same people. Understanding and managing these factors will ensure success for the participants' businesses.

Outcomes:

Participants will leave with specific action plans outlining what steps are required, strategically and tactically, to implement their "magnet factors" as well as individual steps to maximize Gen Y performance. These steps will be outlined for each participant in a readily accessible format where they can refer to their plan on a daily and weekly basis.

This workshop is also suitable for a half day retreat.
