Square 1: How Going Back to Basics Will Get Us Ahead

Presenter: Eric Termuende
Whether we’re reading the World Economic Forum’s ‘Future of Jobs’ Report, RBC, McKinsey, etc. is it becoming increasingly clear that to succeed in the workplace of the future, our soft skills need to be developed. This has never been truer for leaders. We’re living in a near ‘instant economy’ fueled by accessibility to information as we’ve never experienced before. As leaders, we need to be better active listeners, problem solvers, critical thinkers, speakers, managers of time, and learners. And we need this for our employees, too. As we get more educated about the capabilities of AI, we know that the pendulum has swung and the over-emphasis of the need to learn coding and technical skills, while still important, must be paired with the development of soft skills.

In this presentation, Eric Termuende will walk attendees through the modern and future working environment to build a better sense of trust, belonging, and better communication.

At this event, attendees will learn:
  • Three best practices to boost soft skill development amongst our team members
  • How to proactively create a sense of belonging in the workplace
  • How to mitigate poor short turnover and high tenure
  • What employees need to feel in order to be their best at work
  • Uncover myths about engagement in 2019
  • How to identity which environment our people will thrive in and what story to tell to attract others

Workplace Cultures: Optimized is the New ‘Best’

Presenter: Eric Termuende
For the longest time, we’ve been talking about best places to work, best cultures, and best-managed companies. For who though? The jury is still out. We have credit unions comparing themselves to big banks, small accounting firms sizing themselves up against the Big 4, and nearly everyone striving to have that elusive ‘Google’ culture. What if a ‘best’ workplace didn’t exist? Turns out that it doesn’t, but an ‘optimized’ culture does. In this webinar Eric will discuss the difference between optimized and best culture, and work through an action plan to discover not only what an optimized culture looks like, but how to take key steps in building a place where company and employee are aligned.

  • Most companies use their ‘best (culture, managed, engaged)’ status as a badge without understanding why
  • Employee experience within the workplace must match stated experience and align with your company’s mission, vision, and value statements
  • Engagement in an optimized workplace occurs when people do their best work when they can just be
  • Recognition in an optimized workplace is a moving target, and easy to hit when people and patterns are understood
