Skyline Group Launches Powerful Tools for Identifying Leadership Development ROI: Expands the dynamic interactive reporting capability to all C4X products

by SkylineG

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyline Group Intl – As part of the continual development of Skyline Group's scalable leadership coaching platform (C4X), human resources professionals can now better track and demonstrate the ROI of their leadership development investment. The addition of more robust data and interactive program metrics reinforces Skyline's focus on leadership development innovation and measurable results.

Milo Sindell, President of Skyline Group's C4X division, stated, "We are very excited to launch this expanded measurement capability as part of our C4X solution. Deploying leadership coaching no longer needs to be an expensive investment with a murky ROI. When companies deploy our solutions they can track, measure, and assess coaching ROI at both an individual and group basis.

"Leadership coaching can be the most powerful way to develop leaders. However, measuring the impact of traditional leadership coaching is a major challenge. Now, better coaching data and reporting results in clear presentation of key metrics for individuals and groups coached as part of the C4X ecosystem. Data from increased leadership effectiveness, productivity, development of 'soft-skills,' to overall program efficacy are gathered and synthesized. We look at results across different learning levels, represented in the Kirkpatrick/Phillips Model aligned with Skyline Group's C4X solutions.

"The data that is presented gives companies the ability to gain deep insight into not only individuals but leadership as a cohort. With this data, companies can make better strategic decisions including prioritizing what leadership skills need to be developed for company success or better-informed leadership hiring."

Skyline Group works with hundreds of companies helping them increase performance and results through developing their leaders. Companies use Skyline Group for the scalability, quality, and the results our solutions provide. Ensuring that the companies and HR professionals we work with have the data they need to demonstrate the value of the leadership development investments they are making is a critical part of Skyline Group's mission.

MSCI Awarded the Technology Award by CLO Using Skyline Group International’s Coaching for Excellence Coaching Technology Platform

by SkylineG

http://www.clomedia.com/2017/10/03/learning-practice-award-winners-announced/

Committed to increasing employee retention and engagement, employee alignment with the corporate culture, professional skill development, MSCI created the Accelerate Leadership Development Program (ADLP). The 4-5 month C4L component of the ALDP comprised the core of ALDP.

Annie Abrams, Vice President, Skyline Group Intenational, shared “Each participant, after debriefing their C4L 360s with their coach, and receiving alignment from their managers, selected three leadership competencies/goals of the 28 Skyline Leadership Competencies to focus on throughout their C4L program. Their online learning was then customized to allow participants to focus, with the support of their coach, on moving their selected competencies/goals from a foundational level to a sustainable transformational level of development.”

“Those who have participated in the Accelerate Leadership Development Program coaching program reported that their self-awareness of their leadership behaviors greatly increased and that they feel more confident about what they need to do to continue to develop as leaders. “ said, Mike Calamari, Global Head of Talent Management, MSCI. “ The program culminated with a summit in New York City this fall where participants came together to engage our Executive Team on ideas to tackle some of our most important strategic challenges. This investment in top talent is helping us build a stronger pipeline of future leaders. Skyline Group’s C4L allowed us to develop our leaders in a scalable and cost effective way.“

About MSCI:

With deep expertise in the areas of risk and performance measurement that is based on more than 40 years of academic research, real-world experience and collaboration with their clients, MSCI operates in a highly competitive industry space.

Skyline is partnering with our valued client, MSCI, on their Accelerate Leadership Development Program (ALDP)

by SkylineG

Selected MSCI leaders have been participating in Skyline Group’s C4L program and virtual engagement sessions hosted by Skyline Group. Skyline Group has worked with Key leaders within MSCI to design the summit and our team will facilitate much of it.

The Summit includes sessions on leadership agility, design thinking, a C-level forum and discussion - with all of this resulting in not only extending the development done during their C4X experience - but resulting in tangible business impact to MSCI. We will tie all of this together using actual strategic objectives provided by the C-Suite called their 5 Transformations and having the leaders at the summit, create solutions to bring those objectives to life for MSCI's business, employees and clients. All of this will be achieved while still focusing on integrating specific leadership competencies that were recognized as a focus for this cohort.
During this 2.5-day summit, participants will engage with senior MSCI executives providing them with an opportunity to drive their careers, network with colleagues and learn in a cross functional way. The participants will engage in interactive, applied learning in a challenging and exciting format, and reflect on what they’ve learned, bringing these new behaviors into their jobs, their teams, and to MSCI as a whole.


We are very proud of our relationship with MSCI and this program is a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our Skyline Account Executive for this account, Annie Abrams, and our EVP of People and Revenue, Stacy Shamberger. We also thank the many coaches who are coaching MSCI leaders and facilitating workshops for this program.

Skyline Group Is Excited To Announce That Thuy Sindell, President of Skyline and Head of Skyline's Coaching Division Will Be Speaking At ATD 2017!

by SkylineG

http://www.atdconference.org/

What do you think of when you think about an average woman in a leadership role? What qualities do they have? How do they act? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses? Now, think about the same for an average male leader. What does their leadership style look like? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses?

Chances are, your idea of what a male and female leader looks like is pretty similar to everyone else’s. And that’s because there are some strong stereotypes surrounding gender and leadership. In this engaging presentation, Thuy will present the components of what balanced leadership looks like and action and how this perspective provides a road map for today's leader.

Skyline Group's Thuy Sindell To Present At HR West 2017

by SkylineG

http://hrwest.org/session/genderless-leadership-creating-balanced-leaders-organization/

When we think about leadership and gender, we associate certain traits with men and women. Women in leadership positions are great listeners, they’re compassionate, and they’re collaborative. On the other hand, men in leadership roles are competitive, assertive, and decisive. In reality, one gender doesn’t own certain leadership skills — there’s a masculine and feminine way of performing each skill. Learn to adapt your behaviors based on your audience, your approach and your gender, simultaneously.

Skyline Group International Launches Leadership Coaching Technology Devoted to Women Leaders

by SkylineG

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2016/8/prweb13628221.htm

While women make up 53 percent of entry-level employees, there’s a serious lack of women leaders -- a 2015 analysis published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that women account for just 24 percent of senior vice presidents and 19 percent of c-suite executives.

“Despite this statistic and others that demonstrate the divide between male and female leaders, the current conversation on gender in leadership is at a standstill. Professionals and employers alike recognize there’s a problem, but can’t seem to move forward to a solution. Traditional leadership development addresses the problem by telling women to become more masculine and men to act less like jerks -- but that approach isn’t working,” states Thuy Sindell, President of Skyline Group’s coaching division.

Sindell continues, “Leadership development fails women because it takes an all or nothing approach, but the key is balance.”

C4W is the only leadership solution tailored for current and emerging women leaders. C4W guides each leader to identify and develop their most important leadership skills with a gender-balanced perspective.

C4W is designed to help current and emerging women leaders to focus on the skills most important to increasing women’s effectiveness in the workplace. This is achieved through:

1. Guiding participants to assess and identify their most important development opportunities.
2. An tailored online multimedia program that provides weekly direction, interactive content, and tools.
3. One-on-one coaching to reinforce learning, bring online content to life, and support the unique development needs of each leader.
4. Metrics that track program and participant results.

http://www.hci.org/hr-conferences/2016-Learning-Leadership-Development/overview

HCI has developed hundreds of events over the years; some of the factors we look at in programming our conferences include trends, market conditions, pain points and the rate of change in our industry. In the past there were times when the industry became quiet, (you remember), and the challenge was to keep things fresh year after year. Those days are gone. Forever. Suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of a whirlwind of change where everything we were taught, everything we’ve thought, everything we’ve done in the past is no longer stable, reliable, or relevant.

One thing is certain, in disruptive times organizations are now dependent on new processes and models of learning and leadership development to innovate and grow.

PR Web: Skyline Group International has released new research that finds female leaders need more support

by Skyline G

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2016/06/prweb13485690.htm

Among 28 leadership competencies studied, men and women agreed that there is a significant and recognizable gender continuum on 27 of them. For each skill, there is a feminine and masculine expression, and which one leaders use in different situations impacts how effective they are and how they are viewed by their peers.

While masculine and feminine expressions of leadership qualities are different, one isn’t necessarily better than the other. Respondents rated more than 70 percent of leadership competencies, both masculine and feminine expressions, as equally effective. Additional highlights from the survey include:
Professionals have a significantly lower perception of leadership effectiveness when women express the masculine behavior in 57 percent of the competencies measured.

Only women rate other women as less effective when they express the masculine version of 43 percent of the competencies.
Men were perceived as less effective when expressing the feminine approach in just 39 percent of competencies.
Both men and women agree that the feminine expression of emotional control -- acknowledging emotions and appropriately expressing them -- is more than 40 percent more effective than the masculine version -- ignoring emotions and holding them in.

“We have spent a lot of time developing feminine qualities in our male leaders, but we have ignored developing masculine traits in female leaders,” said Thuy Sindell, founder and managing partner at Skyline Group. “So when we see female leaders express traits associated with males, we tend to be highly critical and push her back toward the feminine expression -- and this pushback can be even stronger among other women.

“But what we really need are balanced leaders. Both men and women need to possess masculine and feminine traits and use them appropriately to be highly effective leaders. Women who typically take a more masculine approach could be more effective by adopting more feminine behaviors, and vice versa.”

Skyline Group’s C4X | Coaching For Excellence Platform Eliminates Barriers to Leadership Development Success

by Skyline Group

http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160308006611/en

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyline Group International today released a new white paper, “Developing Leaders in the 21st Century: Outdated Methodology is Giving Way to Technology-Enabled Solutions,” which details the shortcomings of old-school leadership coaching approaches.

Skyline Group releases white paper detailing shortcomings of old-school leadership coaching approaches
Tweet this
Industry experts have identified several shortcomings of existing coaching programs, including the failure to address the needs of mid-level leaders; poorly designed programs that don’t address the coaching expectations of today’s workforce that consists of millions of Millennials, Gen Xers and Gen Zs; a growing gap between learning and actually leading under real-world conditions; inadequate metrics for assessing the impact of leadership development programs; and a lack of scalability that makes it hard to provide customized and rapid coaching to large teams under fast-changing market conditions.

Responding to these concerns, Skyline Group International has created C4X | Coaching for Excellence, a first-of its-kind technology-driven leadership development solution that is cost-efficient, scalable and fully customizable to meet the needs of today’s fast-moving organizations.

“Skyline Group’s C4X | Coaching for Excellence solution is specifically designed to combine the key benefits of tried-and-true 1:1 coaching with a technology-driven platform to make leadership coaching scalable and measurable,” said Thuy Sindell, Ph.D., Founder and Managing Partner of Skyline Group. She added, “C4X leverages technology to quickly scale leadership development coaching, making it more efficient, measureable and dramatically more cost-effective than traditional coaching methods.”

The white paper, which is available on the Skyline Group web site (http://skylineg.com/resourcespotlight), details several pressing issues facing old-school coaching methods, including:

One-size-fits-all approaches: According to a recent study by McKinsey, Why leadership-development programs fail, “Too many training initiatives rest on the assumption that one size fits all and that the same group of skills or style of leadership is appropriate regardless of strategy, organizational culture, or CEO mandate.”
Failing to support mid-level leaders (aka “the barbell approach”): According to the authors of Danger in the Middle: Why Midlevel Managers Aren’t Ready to Lead, from Harvard Business Publishing, “Many companies recognize that they need to do a better job on middle management training. An April 2012 Harvard Business Publishing survey found that only 28 percent of organizations felt their development programs had evolved to match the changing needs of middle managers. This ‘barbell’ approach—heavy on the ends, light in the middle—has exacted a heavy price in terms of underperforming and demoralized middle managers who lack the networking, planning and team-building skills necessary to excel in the flat organizational structures that are so prevalent today.”
Difficulty measuring the impact of leadership coaching: “Companies still rely mostly on self-reported satisfaction with the program and follow-up 360 assessments to gauge the value of their investment,” according to a McKinsey Global Survey. “A third of respondents don’t know the return on their companies’ training investment.”
“C4X | Coaching for Excellence fills a void in the marketplace because current leadership development coaching solutions are old school and out-of-touch with today’s organizations and next-gen leaders,” said Stacy Shamberger, EVP of Business Development and Sales Operations at Skyline Group. She added, “We have completely modernized the experience for both leaders and HR executives by creating an intuitive and user-friendly interface, a multimedia learning experience, and a real-time dashboard of team progress reports, drill-down data and graphic views.”

Skyline Group’s C4X | Coaching For Excellence Leadership Development Platform Launches on All Mobile Devices

by

http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160219005213/en/Skyline-Group’s-C4X-Coaching-Excellence-Leadership-Development

By adding mobile capabilities, leaders, coaches and HR managers can now access all the functionality of C4X anytime, anywhere and from any device, including all iOS and Android mobile devices.

“C4X is specifically designed to take the key benefits of tried-and-true coaching methods and make them scalable and adjustable on a technology platform,” said Thuy Sindell, Ph.D., Founder and Managing Partner of Skyline Group. She added, “C4X leverages technology to quickly scale leadership development coaching, making it more efficient, measurable and dramatically more cost-effective than traditional coaching methods.”

By moving traditional leadership development coaching to C4X, organizations can save up to 75 percent on the cost of coaching compared to traditional methods. That makes it possible to provide much-needed coaching to mid-level and high-potential leaders, in addition to senior leaders.

“C4X addresses the fast pace and changing dynamics of today’s large organizations,” explained Milo Sindell, Managing Partner at Skyline and President of C4X. “Because it scales to coach hundreds of leaders throughout your organization simultaneously, C4X helps companies quickly adjust to new strategies and changing market conditions.”

Dozens of forward-thinking organizations have deployed C4X to improve the performance of hundreds of leaders, contributing measurable results including increased productivity, as well as greater revenues and better profit margins.

“The overall quality of Skyline’s C4X program is excellent, the tools are great and the coaches have been very well received by our leaders. In a short period of time, C4X has made it possible for us to coach more than 150 leaders across Medidata offices worldwide in an efficient, cost-effective manner and to see a substantial return on our investment,” said Eileen Schloss, EVP of Human Resources at Medidata, a New York-based technology company and the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for clinical research through its cutting-edge SaaS platform.

How C4X | Coaching For Excellence Works

C4X starts with a novel online 360 assessment that makes it easy for evaluators to provide meaningful input quickly and thoroughly at anytime and on any device. The leader then works with their manager and coach to define their development goals based on the 360 and the organization’s needs.

Over the course of the 16-week program, the leader meets with their Skyline Group coach and works independently on their leadership skills on their desktop or mobile device, learning key concepts and best practices from rich supporting materials housed on the C4X platform including videos, white papers and articles.

Simultaneously, HR managers can monitor the progress of the leaders being coached via C4X’s real-time dashboard, which provides team progress reports, drill-down data and graphic views, as well as the ability to track the progress of specific leaders.

Webinar: What Talent Development Professionals Need to Do to Become a Valued Strategic Business Partner.

by Skyline Group

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8765296072735491586

Skyline Group is excited to announce our upcoming webinar with Dave Vance, Executive Director of the Center for Talent Reporting and former President, Caterpillar University.

Despite an increasing appreciation of the critical role talent management professionals play in the success of a business, a large gap remains between the value talent management professionals could bring and the value they are actually delivering today. Why does this gap still exist? The gap remains because many talent professionals simply do not know how to think like a business person or what it means to run HR with business discipline. It is time to close the gap between the potential that talent management can deliver and what a company can achieve!

Skyline Group International and Cornerstone On Demand Partner to Help Companies Unleash The Hidden Strengths of Their Employees

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skyline-group-international-and-cornerstone-on-demand-partner-to-help-companies-unleash-the-hidden-strengths-of-their-employees-300142320.html

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hidden Strengths: Unleashing The Crucial Leadership Skills You Already Have, is the new book by Thuy Sindell and Milo Sindell, principals at Skyline Group International, a leadership performance company. Every person who is a leader or aspires to be one can no longer depend on what they do well today. The world no longer allows anyone to rest on yesterday's strengths. Hidden Strengths, provides a powerful methodology for continual self-driven leadership development and employee performance.

Thuy Sindell shares, "If talents, knowledge and skills combine to create your strengths, then Hidden Strengths is the potential within everyone to transform knowledge and skill(s) into learned strengths. There's huge opportunity between the top 20% and bottom 10% of your skills. Therein lies the greatest opportunity for becoming a better leader."

Cornerstone on Demand will be partnering with Skyline Group to bring the Hidden Strengths Movement to companies across the country by sponsoring speaking events and sharing the Hidden Strengths book.

The message of Hidden Strengths is one of taking charge of your personal and professional development and being the best one can be. Here are the six Hidden Strength principles:

Constant change is the reality in today's business world. As such, companies and employees today cannot only rely on their strengths alone to succeed.
Focusing on weaknesses is a waste of time and energy.
The heart of continual development is found in the middle of our skill spectrum.
Research has shown that effective leaders evolve and grow throughout their careers, whereas failed leaders get stuck in a pattern of overusing their strengths to the point of staleness.
Today's workforce must be agile. When employees are agile companies are agile. Agility means you are constantly developing your Hidden Strengths.
Employees, regardless if they are individual contributors, middle managers or executives should take control of their career and develop their Hidden Strengths.

Get ready to see leadership development in a new way! It is time to join the Hidden Strengths Movement! Learn more at HiddenStrengths.com

The Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII) is Conducting Groundbreaking Research on Disengaged Leaders

by PR Newswire

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/the-organizational-intelligence-institute-oii-is-conducting-groundbreaking-research-on-disengaged-leaders-300078737.html?tc=eml_cleartime

SAN FRANCISCO, May 6, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It is estimated that disengaged employees cost companies up to $550 billion* on an annual basis as a result of lost productivity and turnover. Many researchers have studied the levels and impact of disengaged employees. However, as much as what is known about employee engagement, little is known about disengaged leaders in the workplace and their impact.

The Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII) - A Skyline Group International company, is conducting groundbreaking research on the pervasiveness, symptoms, and impact of disengaged leaders. The study will also explore how people perceive their boss and the impact of this perception.

Salvatore Falletta, EVP and Managing Director for the Organizational Intelligence Institute shares that "we've all heard the alarming statistics about the cost associated with disengaged employees. Now imagine the multiplying and cascading effect disengaged leaders and bad bosses can have on their teams and organizations. With this research we hope to gain insight into this pressing problem and to identify specific actions that companies can take to re-engage leaders at all levels."

Research by the Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII) Reveals the Real Drivers of Leader Engagement

by

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/research-by-the-organizational-intelligence-institute-oii-reveals-the-real-drivers-of-leader-engagement-300031810.html

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 6, 2015) – In a recent report published by The Economist, 4 in 5 senior leaders consider employee engagement as a critical risk factor for business. However, the report also indicated that only 1 in 10 senior leaders are highly engaged and willing to go the extra mile for their organizations.

Such findings strongly suggest that the writing is on the wall as only engaged leaders can maximize employee engagement at all levels. After all, leaders have a privileged role in designing and ratifying the organizational policies and practices and engaging others which in turn has a cascading effect throughout the organization. Yet, organizations tend to employ a "one-size-fits-all' approach when it comes to maximizing employee engagement and performance.
The Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII) - a Skyline Group company conducted research to uncover the underlying drivers of leader engagement by select workforce segments – including leaders, high-potentials, and those with senior leadership aspirations (VP and above) as well as high ambition and achievement orientation.

Dr. Salvatore Falletta, EVP and Managing Director for the Organizational Intelligence Institute shares that “it’s quite fashionable and arguably a self-serving notion for the HR industry to contend that the primary drivers of employee engagement are all about the relationship with one’s immediate manager, co-worker quality, employee learning and development opportunities, and the like. While these usual suspects have a significant impact on engagement as a whole, they tend to miss the mark for critical workforce segments.”
This new research elucidates the specific variables that affect leader engagement and the consequences associated with leader disengagement. It may be that the drivers of leader engagement and/or disengagement are not as straightforward as previously thought. This research can help companies begin to understand what matters most to high-potentials and aspiring leaders. As a result, companies are better able to make smarter human capital investments to engage and motivate their current and future leaders.

There has been a lot of discussion and interest around the disengaged employee – but very little research and information regarding The Impact of the Disengaged Leader. The effect on the business and the employees that report to these leaders is staggering. Billions of dollars in lost productivity, law suits and increased employee attrition are some of the obvious results.

In this fast paced informative and interactive session attendees will review insights and research on the engaged leader, learn to recognize the profile of a disengaged leader and walk away with an action plan for getting these leaders back on track.

Ground breaking research and insight will be coupled with actionable take-aways, ensuring a productive session. And each person that attends will receive a copy of the research paper, The Engaged Leader, based on a national survey conducted by the Organizational Intelligence Institute, the HCM research division of Skyline Group International.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New employee turnover can run as high as 70%.* 80% of new employee performance objectives fail to be achieved. * The result of this unwanted turnover and unrealized performance is estimated to be in the billions of dollars.

Skyline Group International has created Coaching for On-boarding (C4O) a new and powerful system to increase new employee retention and productivity.

"We are excited that Skyline Group can provide companies the most unique and powerful way to engage new hires. C4O is the only new employee on-boarding system that combines a 24/7 anywhere at anytime online solution with the impact of a real live leadership Coach. Companies spend millions of dollars on finding and hiring the right people but most fail when it comes to maximizing the productivity and retention of their new hires. The right way to bring new employees on board is through a holistic system that guides new hires over the course of weeks, provides actionable guidance that can be immediately applied, and is customized to their specific needs. Imagine all of this plus a real leadership coach to help new hires through this most critical time – that's C4O," States Milo Sindell, President of Skyline Group.

The Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII), Launches Research To Uncover The Causes and Impact of Disengaged Leaders

by PR Newswire

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/the-organizational-intelligence-institute-oii-launches-research-to-uncover-the-causes-and-impact-of-disengaged-leaders-275275851.html

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 12, 2014) – It is well researched that employees who are not engaged costs companies hundreds of millions of dollars per year. What is not well understood is the broader impact disengaged leaders have upon employee engagement as well as company performance. Even more troubling is lack of research and insights on the primary factors that enable or inhibit leader engagement.

Salvatore Falletta, Executive Vice President and Managing Director for the Organizational Intelligence Institute, shares that "When it comes to increasing employee engagement levels, more often than not – organizations tend to employ a one-size-fits-all approach, yet the primary drivers of engagement (e.g., relationship with the direct manager, rewards and recognition, growth and development, opportunities for advancement and promotion) are likely to differ by various workforce segments (e.g., executives, aspiring senior leaders, mid-level managers, and front-line employees) and other variables. What we hope to uncover from this research are the real factors that drive leader engagement and just maybe, if we’re lucky, some of the hidden motives and aspirations of leaders. The value proposition for those currently in leadership roles or emerging leaders who aspire to lead people and organizations are likely to be significantly different.”

The Organizational Intelligence Institute (www.oi-institute.com) will be launching a research survey on October 6th 2014 to gain insight into the factors that drive leader engagement and how these drivers of engagement differ by job level, role, function, generational cohort, geography, and senior leadership aspirations (i.e., those who aspire to be C-level executive leaders).

The Simple Secret To Deep and Meaningful Employee Engagement With Dr. Beverly Kaye

by Skyline Group

https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/785195639

Study after study confirms that what employees want most is support for their professional development and career growth, and that offering this to them is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving employee engagement, retention, productivity, and performance results. However, in spite of this information, career development often gets ‘sidelined’ and employees are left feeling overlooked and undervalued.

In order to achieve and sustain high levels of performance there must be a link between what an individual employee is passionate about and what the organization needs to grow its business. An effective way to insure that linkage is to hold every manager accountable for facilitating periodic professional development discussions with each of their employees, as research suggests that if an individual is positively challenged, finds work to be meaningful, and believes that their manager truly cares about their growth, their engagement will be high.

This session Dr. Beverly Kaye, sheds much needed light on specifically what managers can do – within the time-starved, priority-rich, pressure-cooker environment – to support employees’ careers. And it comes down to this: engage in short, ongoing conversations with employees about their career options, needs, and passions.

Dr. Beverly Kaye, Founder of Career Systems International, was named the 2010 recipient of the Distinguished Contribution to Workplace Learning and Performance Award by ASTD. Bev is recognized for her groundbreaking body of work and the significant impact she has had on learning and performance in the workplace. Bev is the author of Up Is Not The Only Way and co-author of Love 'Em or Lose 'Em: Getting Good People to Stay the Wall Street Journal best-selling book, as well as Love It Don’t Leave It. Her firm, Career Systems International, works with the Fortune 500™ and continues to invent, systems and strategies in development, engagement & retention. Her most recent book, Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go was released in 2012.

How many times have you heard the adage: “sometime you have to slow down to go fast”? Have you wondered if it is true or not? Why does it matter? The simple answer is that it matters because you need to have the whole team on board to get in gear! Meaning, you’ve got to clarify the “why behind the what” and the pieces have to fit together on multiple levels that extend beyond the mere tactical. When you’ve prepared and have a plan, decision speed becomes lightning fast and results come easier because your teams are running ‘on purpose’ and are highly engaged and energized.

Come learn a strategy framework that will help you:

o   Think more broadly and completely about how work gets done in organizations
o   Clarify and diagnose what aspect of organizational glue might be missing for you.
o   Organize in your mind what creates innovation in your business and how to foster an environment where breakthrough ideas come more often
o   Develop the actions you can take with your organization to make a difference immediately

Join Mark Morgan, author of HBR’s “Executing Your Strategy: Breaking It Down and Getting it Done” and “Executing Your Business Transformation” and Stacy McCarthy, Executive Coach and President of Skyline Group, for a conversation about the organizational glue that enables personal and strategic success in the world of work.

Workplace Strategy, the alignment of physical space, technology, business process and work practices, is becoming an increasingly important factor in enabling business performance.

As a result, many high performance organizations now treat their work environment as a strategic asset that can:
•   Strengthen organizational culture
•   Increase employee satisfaction and engagement
•   Increase access to talent
•   Increase productivity

In this one-hour webinar facilitated by Skyline Group's Milo Sindell, Reza Ahmadi will:

1.   Discuss the impact of workplace strategy in organizational development
2.   Share insights into key workplace strategy trends, including increasing HR leadership in workplace initiatives
3.   Discuss the role of workplace in business transformation and culture change
4.   Engage in discussion with the audience and provide examples of how developing and implementing workplace strategy can drive organizational change
