CANCELLED: Peel Halton: Actionable Conversations

CANCELLED: Peel Halton: Actionable Conversations
Developing people and building engagement, are critical components in business success. However, the availability of resources such as time and dollars can create challenges when trying to develop your team. Engagement is critical as it links to all major business drivers (e.g. sales, quality, productivity, customer service, absenteeism, safety, etc.). If employees are not engaged by what they do, they will be unmotivated to give both their heart and hands to the job.  A micro learning alternative, that is a unique approach lead by the team leader, builds employee engagement, through conversations.  This method, titled “Actionable Conversations”, will be introduced at the session.

Actionable Conversations
1. Inspired by top business books.
2. Short in duration - 1 hour in length.
3. Easy to lead - no external facilitator needed. Support and resources are provided to make it easy to conduct the conversation (conversation outline, book summary, leader notes, and video instruction).
4. Accountable – a built in accountability loop accessed through an online dashboard will track individual behavioural action plans.  This ensures sustainable behaviour change.

 In this session, participants will experience Actionable Conversations and learn how to respond with coaching questions rather than jumping to solutions. This keeps ownership for solving the problems with the person who needs to implement the solution and also triggers the coaching conversations that further develop the team.
