Turning Numbers Into Action: Making the State of the Team Conversation More Effective
Date & Time
Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 10:00 AM - 10:50 AM
Stephen Shields
Description

A manager passes out their team’s engagement results and asks, “So what do you all think?” And then? Crickets. Too often, this is the reality. How can this be avoided?

Gallup calls these state of the team conversations, while others call them action planning or impact planning conversations. But no matter what they’re called, there are specific tactics that managers can execute to make these conversations fruitful. When teams have a productive conversation exploring the sources of engagement and disengagement beneath their survey results, devise a plan to address those, and then, most importantly, actually execute those plans, those teams are taking ownership of their own engagement. Subsequently, their engagement will increase! In this session, participants will learn best practices on how to facilitate such an effective conversation.

Objectives:

  • Explore ways teams can discuss what their engagement reality is beneath the survey results without getting bogged down in the paralysis of analysis.
  • Understand how to choose a practical business or operational issue on which to focus in a team’s action plan.
  • Discover ways to enable a team to quickly identify one Q12 item most relevant to that chosen issue.
  • Learn how to empower a team to devise an action that’s both verifiable and practical.

Sylwia Skrezyna

Coaches provide an excellent depth of understanding and can make meaningful impact individually and with teams. But to create a sustainable community of strengths-based development takes more. Strengths champions expand the positive impact a coach can make by promoting, guiding and encouraging others to invest in their strengths. In this session, explore the role of strengths champion and plan for ways you can evaluate your organization, school or community for potential multipliers — champions.

In this session, participants will explore how to create and implement a “strengths champions strategy” by creating a purpose, selecting the right people, setting them up for success and making it stick.

Objectives:

  • Discover how to widen your influence by working with and through others to create a thriving workplace.
  • Understand the differences between a strengths coach and a strengths champion.
  • Learn how you can create a strengths-based community by leveraging your own strengths.

Jeremie Brecheisen Lisa Chang Kathleen Hogan Nickle LaMoreaux
Description

At the start of 2021, many of us expected the world to return to normalcy. Companies were creating return to the workplace plans as vaccines rolled out, but instead, the year was more volatile than expected. New COVID-19 variants, a massive war for talent, the Great Resignation and the highest inflation levels in a generation created surprising instability. On top of this, companies continue to navigate DEI journeys, technological transformations, the need to prioritize employee wellbeing and so much more.

Join this session for a discussion between three prominent CHROs on how companies are rethinking the future of the workplace and how they are tackling their most pressing problems.

Objectives:

  • Gain insight into the current state of work and issues that are top of mind for some of the world’s leading CHROs.
  • Dive into different perspectives and strategies on some of the most pressing problems in today’s workplace.
  • Hear how CHROs are thinking about the future and how they are setting themselves up to handle unforeseen disruptions and workplace planning.

Date & Time
Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM
Denise McLain
Description

Understanding what employees are thinking and feeling during these days of constant disruption can be difficult. Organizations have found that pulse surveys are an excellent way to gain insights and perspectives on how associates think about workplace culture, organizational strategies and new initiatives. But do organizations have a thorough strategy and action plan for what to do with the results? Are you choosing the right questions and developing your managers on how to use the insights?

In this session, we’ll explore the different ways organizations have used pulse surveys, the different methodologies to conduct a pulse survey, how the information has enhanced organizations and examples of organizational pulse strategies.

Meria Joel Carstarphen, Ed.D.
Description

A confluence of stressors is producing trauma and burnout throughout American school systems. Remote learning, declines in student performance, politically charged environments, culture wars and COVID-19 fatigue — it’s not uncommon to find parents, labor groups, politicians and staff on opposing sides of these issues.

Brian Brim, Ed.D.
Description

Managing or coaching sales professionals is complicated. The best sales professionals do not share the same talents, experiences or habits. While Gallup research shows that there is no “one right way to sell,” we discovered that successful professionals do have one thing in common: They share a relentless commitment to understanding and serving the emotion, style and talent of their clients. They tune their ear toward the emotion of their clients, serving as trusted advisers.

This session will explore practical insights and applications stemming from Gallup’s research focused on helping salespeople sharpen and aim their strengths. Gallup shows that strengths, when leveraged properly, can enhance the sales process and ultimately drive stronger sales and stronger engagement for salespeople.

Objectives:

  • Learn to identify the emotional elements of successful sales relationships.
  • Use CliftonStrengths to succeed in a sales process.
  • Preview the new CliftonStrengths for Sales report from Gallup.

Description

Organizations use exit interviews to try to discern the reasons employees leave, but many could be using a new technique to understand why employees are staying and how to retain them: stay interviews.

Objectives:

  • Discover the value and impact of stay interviews to support retention and development.
  • Learn key techniques to uncover needs through stay interviews — and how to incorporate them into individual, team and organizational strategies.

Vibhas Ratanjee
Description

If employees lost trust in your organization, would you know it? Trust is essential to great cultures, especially in a climate of high turnover and incessant change. Employees who trust their leadership are twice as likely to say they will be with their company one year from now. High-trust organizations adapt quickly to change and new initiatives. And even when there are periodic mistakes in decisions or communication, when trust is present, employees tend to give leaders the benefit of the doubt. But a growing number of companies are experiencing an erosion of employees’ trust in leadership. Join this session to understand and influence organizational trust.

Objectives:

  • Learn how to measure trust and how the trust of leadership impacts business outcomes.
  • Discover ways organizations can build trust at the individual, team and organizational levels.
  • Explore ways to build a culture of transparency while building trust.
  • Find out how to practice radical transparency to keep trust alive during difficult conversations.

As remote working continues to blur the lines between home and work, a growing number of employees report feeling burned out. Wellbeing affects the number of sick days people take, their job performance and their likelihood to leave your organization, as does engagement — meaning your company’s strategy to support each employee’s whole-person experience is critical to success.

Join this session to explore how to create a culture of engagement and wellbeing for a thriving future.

Objectives:

  • Learn the Wellbeing Five, a framework for evaluating and improving the human experience, as well as practical tips to make progress.

A strengths-based culture is primarily understanding the interpersonal behaviors, rituals and norms that fuel the performance of your organization. Gallup’s research shows that just 23% of U.S. employees strongly agree they can apply their organization’s values to their work every day. We also know that organizations that drive a strong culture gain benefits, such as an increase in employee engagement and improved customer patronage, that lead to significant growth in workforce and net profits.

Insights From the World’s Most Engaged Workplaces: What the Best Are Doing to Drive Engagement
Date & Time
Tuesday, June 7, 2022, 1:30 PM - 2:20 PM
Mona Balasubramanian
Description

Despite workplace culture moving up the priority list for CEOs globally, the experience at work for most employees is unsettling and energy-sapping. A mere two in every 10 employees in the global workforce today are engaged at work. This can be very costly to organizations — the lost productivity of employees who aren’t engaged is 18% of their annual salary. It is also the key factor in what is popularly referred to as the Great Resignation. The good news: There are organizations out there that buck the trend — they have improved engagement levels to amongst the top quartile of Gallup’s database and sustained this even during the pandemic. Join this session to discover how these organizations have managed this feat and transformed their cultures.

Objectives:

  • Learn best practices for growth in employee engagement implemented by Gallup clients and some of the world’s most engaged organizations.
  • Understand the distinct roles of executives, HR and people leaders to drive the people agenda and build sustainable growth in engagement.
  • Consider practical solutions for improving engagement that even accommodate for disruptions in the workplace or marketplace.

Managers play a critical role in actualizing an organization’s employee value proposition (EVP).

Join this session to learn how the best managers leverage a compelling EVP to attract, engage and retain top talent.

Description

Questions are the backbone of coaching, and while some say there is never a bad question, the most powerful questions unlock insights and move people forward to their aspirational future. Most coaches are familiar with the three levels of listening: listen to respond, listen to understand and listen to emotions. Although it takes many disciplined hours of practice to listen at level three, there is a higher level: listening for the future to emerge. Join this session to learn how to use your strengths to craft powerful questions and listen at the fourth level.

Objectives:

  • Understand the components of how to listen at the fourth level.
  • Learn the anatomy of powerful questions.

When done well, these coaching conversations can have a profound effect on a leader’s or manager's style of management, their team effectiveness, and ultimately the performance results they achieve. Come ready to practice upskilling your coaching capabilities in this workshop meant to equip and inspire!

Objectives:

  • Learn how to uncover and articulate storylines in employee engagement data (bring a real set of engagement results if you have them!).
  • Practice translating engagement insights into great coaching questions with leaders and managers.
  • Be inspired by creative ideas to make engagement coaching more impactful (such as bringing in CliftonStrengths insights).

Purpose, Values and Brand: The Connection That Brings Them to Life

Description

Most companies have a purpose statement, but few have the level of purpose required to attract star talent. Most companies have values on their walls, but few live those values in a way that delivers on their brand promises to customers. The more your purpose, values and brand connect to your unique organizational identity — essentially your organizational strengths — the more they will jump off the website and into the hearts and minds of your people.

This workshop is designed to help organizations — and the people in them — be the best versions of themselves possible, or at least start that journey. We will help you to wrap your purpose, values and brand around your company’s strengths and live that purpose out every day as a manager, coach or individual contributor.

Objectives:

  • Explore your company’s strengths.
  • Connect your company’s strengths to your purpose, values and brand.
  • Create differentiated versions of your purpose, values and brand that no one else could use because they are so uniquely yours.
