Team Building / Employee Engagement / Millennial and Gen Z Retention Programs

There’s not a magic pill or button to increase employee engagement and communication. But there are strategies and opportunities.  And finding the unique strategy to meet your organization’s needs is not something you should have to do on your own. Finding the right partner to help transform your workplace, increase collaboration, and enhance your company culture is crucial.

As a consultant and learning specialist, we collaborate with organizations by:

  • Facilitating on-going learning programs
  • Serving as an advisor to ensure that employee engagement is being monitored, proactively addressed, and part of your organization’s KPIs
  • Developing customized learning to meet the unique needs of your organization and employees
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of current initiatives and conducting a real time analysis on the current state of your organization’s engagement

Our programs and services aim to:

  • Enhance teamwork and collaboration in multi-generational workforces
  • Increase workplace communication
  • Create efficient and productive teams
  • Support diversity and inclusion

Each training comes with a monthly support program.  These programs include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis, follow up reporting, and recommendations for the current state of your organization’s engagement
  • Phone, email, and video support for two designated contacts in your organization
  • Creation and facilitation of additional learning and development programming
  • Monthly exclusive newsletter and online video library

Humanize Your Workplace: Having Real and Inclusive Conversations at Work

Too often, people avoid difficult conversations. But these discussions often need to happen to move forward. There’s no denying that our workplaces are more diverse than ever. Age, race, gender – there are so many different perspectives and experiences being brought to the table. And the best employees and leaders know that harnessing the power of these differences will build stronger teams, ideas, and organizations. But how do we do this? If we all think, feel, and act so differently, how do we get anything done?

The first step is recognizing that these differences exist. And that they’re here to stay. We need to respect and embrace our varied viewpoints, and then we can start to communicate across (not against) them.

In this session, the audience will learn a three-step process to communicate with their employees and colleagues, and how to create a sustainable plan for ongoing workplace communication.            

AREAS OF FOCUS CAN INCLUDE:

  • Having real conversations about diversity, inclusion, and belonging
  • Recognizing differences as strengths
  • Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable
  • Being present and accessible
  • Connecting beyond the small talk
  • The power of building authentic relationships
  • Building a culture of trust
  • Saying no and setting boundaries
  • Turning down ideas, not people
  • Working with toxic people
  • Replacing quick fixes with challenging (but doable!) actions

From Gen Z to Boomers: The Ageless Challenge of Workplace Communication

At the end of the day, people are people with unique experiences and viewpoints. Let’s stop generation shaming! From “they’re too old to understand technology” to “all millennials are just lazy and don’t know a thing about loyalty.” Let’s get to know the people we work with by asking them questions about their experiences, communication preferences, and motivations. The more we get to know people as people, the better our work culture will be.

In this session, the audience will learn about companies who have successfully brought generations together and low-cost initiatives to start improving retention and engagement rates in their organizations.

AREAS OF FOCUS CAN INCLUDE:

  • Navigating the multigenerational workforce
  • Spotting, training, and retaining talent
  • What different generations look for in a work environment and supervisor
  • Communication strategies to reach different age groups
  • Common values of the five generations in the workforce
  • “Hot button” phrases to avoid and alternative phrases to explore
  • Young professional tools for success
  • Strategies to avoid becoming impatient in your role
  • Opportunities to motivate Millennial employees
  • Gen Z: Engaging the “multi-multi tasking” generation
  • Cultivating the new generation of leaders
  • How technology and the next generation impact the experienced job seeker

The Modern Way We Work: Bridging Communication Across Technology and New Spaces

Our modern workplaces are rapidly changing. We are working across geographies and virtual platforms, and interacting in new spaces and through digital mediums. It’s a lot to navigate. And we need a new set of norms for how we establish rapport, build relationships, and improve communication in these new arenas.

You may be working with people across the globe, who you may never meet. Or perhaps you’re on a team that is completely remote. Or maybe your team works in the same physical space, but almost everything happens through email and instant message.

All of this can be difficult, and sometimes even feel a bit… unhuman. But it’s the reality of our future workplace, so we need to work on making it, well… a little more human. We all have a voice and an opportunity to create the culture we want for our teams, so embrace the new ways we can connect via technology and in person.

AREAS OF FOCUS CAN INCLUDE:

  • Connecting a virtual workforce
  • Breaking down the screen barrier
  • Communicating with intention and choosing a medium
  • Establishing communication protocols
  • Mixing up the meetings and the power of new spaces
  • Making the most of in-person meetings
  • Being more conscious of diversity among cultures and geographies
  • Fostering electronic relationships
