Building meaningful employment environments

Fundamental forces such as population demographics and shifting societal attitudes are changing the nature of work and the relationships between people and their employment environments. This is particularly obvious within front- line team members who now expect to be treated with dignity and expect to perform work that is meaningful. While nobody knows for certain how work will evolve into the future, we do know that organizational cultures and leadership strategies will also modernize as we connect the roles and relationships of people within our organizations.(AME@SD Members: Free compliments of TrailPaths)

Encouraging employee engagement with lean leadership behaviors: Session #2

“The Science of Workforce Engagement” is based on the scientific application of sound theories of human behavior, leadership, and workplace needs. Applying "the science" will fuel the “engagement system” and its seven subsystems allowing each person to perform to their maximum, thus becoming the best version of themselves at work. The manifestation that science is being applied is how the organization uses PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act), the 4CoE (Four Competencies of Execution), and the Six Questions of Continuous Improvement in all activities.

Leader Standard Work: Creating your new leadership routine

As the whirlwind takes over our day, we quickly lose control of our priorities. Once we fall into firefighting mode, our ability to improve and sustain processes and activities becomes secondary. This is where Leader Standard Work (LSW) comes into play. LSW is the foundation for creating new leadership habits that will allow you to spend more time listening to your team, developing your team’s problem-solving abilities, and sustaining improvements.
