Positive Change Management Starts With Yourself

ATD Human Capital

Cultivating this positivity can help us manage the emotions that come along with change. Change is inevitable, but suffering with the change is self-induced. By cultivating a positive mindset, we can train our minds to see the change as something we can cope with, adapt to, and make the best of—even if that means simply learning from it. This change had a ripple effect. How easy is it for you to maintain a positive attitude in a stressful situation?

Time For A Playdate?

SuccessFactors

As I learn more about the ways in which organizations are embracing change related to technology, what’s even more inspiring is that it’s proving to be true. I apply my litmus test of “how will jobs change?” to managing change and understanding its impacts. Being able to articulate the way work will change can bring insight and accessibility to the future of work in a more tangible and personal manner.

The World Needs Dialogue

Conversation Matters

Beth Macy talked about her work in nursing homes that brought together administrators, temporary workers and full-time employees to find ways to give better employment to low paid workers who must provide 24-hour care for patients. Respect (for the person, their history and their situation; attending even when you disagree). All were face-to-face dialogues, many meeting numerous times to achieve their goal. What a great title for a conference!

Compliant Time Tracking: Getting It Right with Time Clocks

ConnecTeam

In a time when machines are learning and data is big, you need to finally trade in the pen-and-paper timesheet for a smart time tracking software solution. Ranging from mobile apps to portable biometric systems with payroll system integration, there is no shortage in time tracking technology. When it comes to managing time and attendance, we must remember that big brother is watching and making sure that we are compliant with regulations.

Lessons Learned: HR, Employee Communications and COVID-19

For those of us in HR and employee communications, these are the times we’ve been training for all our careers. They haven’t had much time to weigh those options and make a decision that affects the lives of everyone in their business. They’ll still be more comfortable if, when you tell them what the decision is , you also explain why it’s the best option and provide a timeline for any changes. Well, things are certainly different, aren’t they?

3 Things We Learned at 2016 NeuroLeadership Summit

Reflektive

Last week, we attended the NeuroLeadership Summit in New York. 1-3 at the Sheraton New York Times Square, and is the most recent of a series of events held by NeuroLeadership Institute over the past nine years. Here are a few learnings our team took home on changing performance management and employee feedback. But as leaders change feedback programs, the challenge is that more feedback won’t be better unless employees are able to give good feedback.

There Is No New Normal – Now What?

Career Partners International

Life as we know it, personally and professionally, has forever changed. As teams around the globe have gone remote seemingly overnight, many employers are realizing that productivity, in many cases, has increased in addition to other benefits such as lower costs, efficiency, greater reach, time savings, and more time with loved ones. Many organizations are viewing the pandemic as an opportunity to flourish, catalyzing positive change, and innovation.

3 Reasons Physical Offices & Face-to-Face Meetings Are Not Going Away

Workplace Psychology

The traditional, physical office is not going away any time soon despite advances in technology allowing people to work remotely , either at a home office, coworking space, virtual office, or another remote location (such as a coffee shop, library, or bookstore). Companies won’t invest time or money to address remote work structurally in their organizations. Managers might recognize that teleworkers are productive, but they are still accustomed toward face-to-face interactions.

Beyond Today’s Crisis: HR Shifts The Culture Of Midsize Businesses To The “Next Normal”

Unfortunately, such a significant change doesn’t happen without some bumps along the way. The pressures of homeschooling children, accommodating a spouse’s schedule, and attending to business needs can make life seem chaotic. First and foremost, HR leaders should address the immediate challenges that the crisis presents to employees, managers, leadership, and management. Some employees may come back to the office full time.

Transform your culture: Lessons from a cooperative, First Credit Union for #CeridianCXDay

Ceridian

By: Angie Poulsen, Human Resource Manager at First Credit Union & Insurance. Recognizing the difference is critical because, as Roberston explained, this type of conversational approach to coaching “empowers the employee to act while their manager supports them. I am proud to be attending Royal Roads in the coming year to obtain the same coaching certification as my mentor Sandra! Before Dayforce, managers had to connect with HR to have access to any records.

Why Organizations Need Storytelling Training

Culture Counts

When was the last time you were taught something to – or worse – preached something to? All consultants and employees were required to attend a presentation regarding new policies and processes around accessibility. For change management, this meant designing communications and training with people of different abilities in mind, an important lesson for us all. Now, what do I need to change?

“Choose how you spend your time and energy” With Nicole Trick Steinbach & Parveen Panwar, Mr. Activated

Thrive Global

Reflect on your relationships and choose how you spend your time and energy. Before stepping into her genius as a global career coach and change management expert, she grew up in a struggling single-parent family and overcame a speech impediment. During my childhood, we moved around Ohio, and as a result, I attended a number of different schools, with different student bodies and mixes of students, in terms of race, economic background, and religious identification.

Re-energizing HR: One company’s journey

HR Times

One of the trends we examined in our Global Human Capital Trends 2015 report was the need for HR to get better at keeping pace with changes in the business. HR adopted the business’s guiding principle to remove pain points, this time directed to internal customers—the company’s approximately 45,000 full-time employees. How could HR change its current service model to remake the customer touch points, simplifying and improving the overall experience?

When the Social Collaboration Magic Happens

TalentCulture

I used it when journaling to family and friends during travel with my wife, collaboratively communicating with colleagues and peers on projects, and communicating real-time with whomever included all of the above. If so, you remember that what may have seemed foreign at first – take email for example – a tool I started using way back in the late 1980’s when I attended and worked at San Jose State University. Blogging was my second social activity of choice at the time.

Why Knowledge Management Didn’t Save General Motors: Addressing Complex Issues By Convening Conversation

Conversation Matters

But between 2000 and 2008 knowledge management did not help GM bring that organizational knowledge together in a way that could have saved it from bankruptcy. Knowledge Management has the capability to address an organization’s very difficult and complex issues, for example how to merge two cultures or how to refocus an organization from selling products to selling service. To date, Knowledge Management has primarily been in the service of cost cutting or its twin, time saving.

Leveraging Collective Knowledge: NASA’s Constellation Program

Conversation Matters

Dave Lengyel, who heads NASA’s Risk and Knowledge Management Program is committed to ensuring that Constellation’s knowledge will not be lost. Others that would be tangentially impacted by the plan were invited, e.g. a CxP information systems representative, the head of CxP records management and the head of CxP security. The meeting was by invitation only - no one was required to attend - so of course Lengyel had more people wanting to come than he had room for.

If the Army Can Put Its Doctrine Up On a Wiki, You've Got No Excuse

Conversation Matters

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of watching an astounding event - a room full of Soldiers typing Army doctrine onto a wiki so that Soldiers in the field could make changes as they were discovering new and better tactics in the midst of fighting a war. Conditions change very fast in Iraq and Afghanistan so it has become increasingly difficult to update the manuals as quickly as change occurs. Had they been asking for a wiki or some way to participate in changing doctrine?

Women Getting to the Top: Change Culture vs Change Behavior

Inpower Coaching

I attended a dinner with senior executive women leaders in financial institutions a few weeks ago at which a question was asked about the quickest way to increase the number of women in the C-suite. Very quickly, the consensus was to change the culture of organizations because of the subtle biases that are held by the dominant group (in this case, men) and how they work against women. Indeed, more women at the top acting as instigators of change will enable the cultural shift.

Training: The Change Agent

QAspire

I have seen training programs becoming more of a “necessary evil” over a period of time. So many people from your organization spend those precious hours either conducting or attending training. Trainings are not a just one-way affair – they are the change agents. In one of the consulting companies I know, the Managing Director/Founder attended the quality induction training in the very first batch. Treat training as a change agent.

The Four Room Apartment: Where the Energy is for Change

Conversation Matters

There is a model of change offered by a Swedish social psychologist, Claes Janssen *, which has always appealed to me, in part because it’s optimistic about the ability of people to change. Janssen says that as we change and develop as human beings, (and I would add as professionals) we continually circle through these four rooms. We are uninterested in attempting improvements or major changes – “If its not broke, don’t fix it.” Tags: Change Management
