A Good Way to Change a Corporate Culture

A Good Way to Change a Corporate Culture | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

All business owners know that it is much easier to talk about changing the culture of a business, than it is to effectively bring about any meaningful change, in a well established culture.

 

Anyone who has succeeded in effecting a change in the culture that previously prevailed in their business, will tell you it took a lot longer than expected, and the disruption to the business was greater than expected.

 

This excellent article, acknowledges the difficulties of effecting lasting change in the culture of any business, and it suggests an easier way that can be adopted to effect immediate change that can be built on as the initial change suggested takes effect.

How To Be a Genius: This Is Apple's Secret Employee Training Manual

How To Be a Genius: This Is Apple's Secret Employee Training Manual | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The Genius Training Student Workbook we received is the company's most up to date, we're told, and runs a bizarre gamut of Apple Dos and Don'ts, down to specific words you're not allowed to use, and lessons on how to identify and capitalize on human emotions. The manual could easily serve as the Humanity 101 textbook for a robot university, but at Apple, it's an exhaustive manual to understanding customers and making them happy. Sales, it turns out, take a backseat to good vibes—almost the entire volume is dedicated to empathizing, consoling, cheering up, and correcting various Genius Bar confrontations. The assumption, it'd seem, is that a happy customer is a customer who will buy things. And no matter how much the Apple Store comes off as some kind of smiling likeminded computer commune, it's still a store above all—just one that puts an enormous amount of effort behind getting inside your head.

The Vital Role of Scenarios in Learning

The Vital Role of Scenarios in Learning | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
In the world of website development, they say content is king. In the world of training/education, you can provide truckloads of content, but it's really context that rules.

Why Include Scenarios?

 

I like this article! Hey -- in business we are constantly having to educate people about our product or service. So here's an idea for you -- use scenarios in your presentations to get everyone involved in on-the-spot learning. Providing someone an experience of your company, product, service builds instant connection, rapport, and transfers knowledge.

 

The author has a terrific diagram in the article about creating scenarios along with lots of great links.

 

Now if you are a trainer, scenarios are not new to you, but I bet you will find the info and links shared here a valuable resource!

 

Thanks @IdeaLearningGroup for sending me this link :)

An A to Z Guide to Employee Engagement

An A to Z Guide to Employee Engagement | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Reasearch has shown that engaged employees do far more for the bottom line of your business than those employees who are disengaged, and as it is so clear that any work done to improve the engagement levels of your employees pays off many times over, it makes sense for a business owner or manager to take every step they can to engage their employees.

 

Where to start and what to do is always the question, and with so much information now available on this subject, it can be quite confusing for a business owner wanting to improve the engagement levels of their staff.

 

This good article, stesses the importance of working actively to ensure your staff are engaged, and it provides 26 simple suggestions that you can implement to get the results you require for your business.
