Be An Organizational Culture Ninja
Your business culture starts with you. Are you ready to lead the way?
The number one thing you can do to build a thriving culture of employee engagement is to develop yourself and your employees. This is just as much about mindset and emotional intelligence as it is about specific technical skills.
In this interactive session, we will explore growth mindset as an employee engagement and leadership tool and identify KPIs that are essential to track so that you can focus on how your company culture is progressing. We will use research from the Gallup organization to assess your company culture and key initiatives from growth mindset organizations to help you plan an employee engagement strategy that will take your company to the next level.
Growth mindset: is both the belief that skills and abilities can be improved, and that developing your skills and abilities is critical to the work you do (Carol Dweck).
Ninja mindset: Both the methods of Kuji-in and Ketsuin were used by ancient ninja to draw out a mental state appropriate for succeeding their missions. Whether it was courage, focus, or enhancing their abilities, they were able to use these methods (wayofninja.com).
Gallup research indicates that changes in employee engagement are best attributed to changes in how organizations develop their employees (gallup.com).
