Leadership is too often a word that is misused and gets a frustrated response. Actually what people miss in the discussion is the purpose of leadership. In 2020 we need our organisations and businesses to be strong to do well during the challenging times ahead. So it is urgent to focus more on the impact of “CULTURE” and in fact on building an “ENGAGED CULTURE“.
Let me ask you 2 questions:
- What would your business or organisation look like IF you could halve the number of disengaged employees?
- How about doubling the number of open honest conversations – what would that do to your business?
At Bridgeworks we focus on what builds great organisations.
So we developed a simple and powerful model,
And we explain it in this video on the dynamics of culture. You will see how culture can be destroyed and how an effective engaged culture can be restored to make an organisation great again.
In April 2019 our Leaders In Action Breakfast Forum “Building A Winning Culture” attracted a large attendance, demonstrating how relevant the topic is for many business people. You may like to listen to the Building A Winning Culture podcast series we will publish progressively with the gems from that event.
How To Build A Culture Of Engagement
The first step is to “take the pulse” of your organisation. We recommend these 2 starting points:
The Organisation & Team Health Check is the benchmarking tool our clients find highly effective in assessing their team or organisation. That is because it allows leaders and team members to measure their team/department or organisation in 4 key areas: Leadership, relationships, environment & behaviour. It paints a clear picture of opportunities that we address first through highly interactive and practical workshops then with focused follow-up implementation support.
“How Others See You” is another powerful tool we use. Unlike classic 360 feedback tools, it measures who you actually are: how your behaviour and attitudes build trust; and it assesses your interpersonal effectiveness.
That process anchors the Bridgeworks workshops and support programs that enable our clients to lift the engagement of their teams. And this leads to opening new opportunities for high performance.
Explore How We Restore Engagement And Performance
Because culture is an endemic issue in the Australian workplace, we run introductory workshops to engage leaders and leadership teams in the thinking about cultural change and understanding the solutions. And where the Covid-19 physical distancing rules apply, we conduct these sessions online, as we have adapted all our programs to an effective virtual format.
Bridgeworks’ 3-hour discovery workshops are great sessions to explore how we tackle workplace culture, how we tackle the difference between “managing” and “leading”. All based on research as to what Aussies expect and want from their leaders and the culture into which they put their heart and soul!
- What Aussies expect of their leaders.
- Measuring how you lead. The good, the bad and the ugly.
- Why our experiential approach to learning has lasting impact.
- Why conflict is a good thing in teams and what to do about it.
- A fun and insightful session of learning and networking.
