    Show #127: Repositioning Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guests: Andy Heath, co-founder of WeThrive; Piers Bishop, co-founder of WeThrive and Janine Osmond, Head of L&D at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

    At WeThrive we spend our working lives talking to people whose lot is to create or maintain an engaged workforce. They don’t always put it like that – the expressed desire might be to have a happy staff, or to improve employee retention, but what they actually want in the end is a workforce that really wants to engage with the company and their work. That doesn’t just happen, of course; it’s a consequence of getting a lot of other things right, so since 2011 we have been working on a way to help HR and L&D people move employee engagement out of the realm of ‘good idea, but…’ and into the very heart of the people-management efforts.

    Janine is in the ‘interesting’ position of trying to help NHS staff stay engaged with their work at a time when the organisation is under more pressure than ever to deliver more with less, and we’d very much like to hear from you too – please email us with questions or topics you’d like covered on the show, starting at 5.15 on September 7th.

    How to define employee performance standards

    in Business

    One of the most common areas of frustration in the workplace is lack of performance feedback.  Employees want to know how they're doing on the job but managers aren't giving feedback because they don't know where to start so they delay, avoid, or just don't do it.  Too many leaders are making this way more difficult than it needs to be.  It doesn't need to be difficult when you follow a simple model.

    Top 5 reasons you need to listen to this episode:

    You can develop your leadership skills in just 15 minutes
    Giving feedback isn't difficult when you know where to start
    The better you get at giving feedback the more valuable you become
    Employee engagement increases when employees know how they're doing
    The #1 Reason... what you learn will make your job so much easier!

    Show #132: Visual Thinking and Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Special Guest: John Ashton of Crackerjack Visual Thinking

    Join us as we talk about what visual thinking is, how to get an organisation ‘visual thinking’ and how it can be used to engage a workforce.

    John helps to increase engagement by helping people explore and visualise their organisations story.

    Helping people throughout an organisation have a shared understanding the organisations story (often referred to as its strategic narrative) is a key part of any engagement strategy.

    His career began working in a variety of learning and development roles for Boots the Chemists including e-learning and behavioural competency development roles. He then went on to lead the learning and development function at Nottingham Building Society introducing a blended learning approach, overseeing the skills and behavioural development aspects of a major core systems implementation and designing the society’s first management and executive development programmes.

    Healing With Steve and Peak Performance Meditation

    in Spirituality

    Steve, an etheric healer with over 25 years experience, will work with the callers to help improve their physical and / or emotional well-being.

    Talking with Steve allows him to connect to your etheric body.  He can then scan it to find problem areas and help remove them.  

    Some of the things he has successfully helped others with include: stress relief, sciatica, sinus congestion, migraines, tendinitis, burns, lung congestion, bronchitis, headache, gout, kidney stones, joint pain, muscle pain, breast cancer, pain caused by cancer and its treatment, pain and inflammation reduction after surgery, and much more.  Generally, if Steve can feel it in the etheric, he can help.

    Recently, Steve started doing peak performance meditations with others.  As you meditate he brings the appropriate energies to your chakras.  This not only allows you to operate at peak performance but also initiates you with spirit.
