Co-leader of Deloitte’s learning and development practice on Smart Learning

The pressure on organizations to address enterprise risk is unlike any we’ve seen before, perhaps because the scale and scope of risk is unprecedented. Certainly, in the wake of the financial crisis and ensuing reforms, regulatory and compliance risk looms large in the financial sector, as well as in health care, with its similarly sweeping reforms. We also anticipate supply chain risk for manufactures, competitive risk for retailers and brand and reputational risk virtually across the board, given the rise in social media and the potential power of global social networks to rapidly shift large groups of people for or against a product or company.

4 Ways HR Can Prepare for Business Growth | DPG Online | Scoop.it

When you work for a smallish company, you need to be ready for growth. And I'm not talking the 2-3% increases over the course of time. I’m talking about the decisions that lead to explosive growth, seemingly overnight. Don’t be “that HR guy/gal” who finds out after the fact that big changes are coming. Have some forethought. Plan ahead. Develop a strategy. You’ll be looked at as a stronger partner within the organization, and it will mean less stress for you and your team when the inevitable changes do

Nice Conflict: Critical skills for L&D (Part 1)

Nice Conflict: Critical skills for L&D (Part 1) | DPG Online | Scoop.it

Through following Angela Maiers, I happened to see the most recent stream of the weekly #LeadershipChat, and the topic was drawn from the book “Have a Nice Conflict“

 

As Lisa Petrilli notes in her summary, rather than being a source of frustration and loss to business, conflict has the potential to be a spark for change, innovation, new relationships, and shared understanding. Of course, this does require a significant change in mindset on both sides of the communication equation.

We’re all aware of conflict and it’s potential for damage to business. In fact, a recent stat thrown out in the chat was that conflict cost the US economy an estimated $395Bn per year (based on an average of 2.8 hours per week in some state of conflict. While some may argue that’s just the cost of doing business, big numbers like that are somewhat hard to ignore.

Creating an organisational wide innovation culture

Creating an organisational wide innovation culture | DPG Online | Scoop.it

Ever heard people say…

“What we need in this organisation is innovation”, “Creativity will give us the edge”.

Leaders often utter these words with little realisation of the difficulties of bringing about a fundamental shift in the behaviour necessary to create an innovation culture across the enterprise. “We can empower people to bring new ideas, we’ll run some workshops on creativity” if only it were that simple. But alas this Procrustean approach is unlikely to reap rich rewards.

Plan more parties. That’s what the company said when I asked them the biggest challenge facing human resources.

 

Years ago, I was interviewing for a director-level position. During the conversation, I asked what the biggest challenge was facing the company’s HR department. Everyone told me the same thing. Employee morale was low and we needed to have more employee parties. So, I’m thinking “I can do parties. In fact, I plan great parties. I’m the one you need.” And several interviews later, I was offered the job.
