Building a Culture of Candor

Professor Stephen Gilliland will discuss challenges and benefits of creating a culture where information is shared openly and individual voices are heard.  This interactive talk will draw on experiences from participants and will include examples from research, business, and Stephen’s own leadership experiences.  Through this presentation, participants will learn:

  • Why and when open information sharing provides more benefit than harm,
  • How to make a case for open communication and overcome the typical roadblocks to sharing information,
  • How leadership grounded in principles of fairness can have strategic benefits that ripple outward to your customers,
  • To encourage input and feedback and why leaders often inadvertently actually discourage this feedback,
  • That a culture of candor can provide sustained competitive advantage for your organization.

TOPIC:  You Want a Stake in The Strategic Planning Process?  Well Then Pull Up a Three-Legged Stool!

We have all heard the “we want a seat at the table” ad nauseam. Many of us have said it ourselves. We desire to play a more strategic role in our organizations but sometimes we’re the ones that create roadblocks to achieving this level of influence. We know that we have to get out of the day-to-day firefighting to have a clear sight and the opportunity to be heard. Year after year we are handed the strategic plan and directed to implement it on all levels, but we may not have the tools or authority to make it happen.

This session is different. It is designed to support the knowledge transfer that will enable you to drive the strategic conversation and be able to back it up with tools, processes, and the language to create a space for yourself in the room. You will learn not only what to do, but how to do it.

Learning Objectives
1. How to position the value of your involvement in the strategic planning session – before the plan
2. Articulate how the strategic plan must flow into workforce and succession planning
3. Some of the technologies, tools and metrics that will allow you to do this
