SORT BY Relevancy
Before we can have engaged employees, we must have engaged students. But, unfortunately, too many first-generation college students encounter obstacles and hurdles that block them from feeling supported, much less embraced, by their schools. Natalie talks to Willie Ney, Executive Director and leader of First Wave, a hip-hop performance troupe that is transforming engagement in higher education.
What is the connection between engagment and influence? Does work that motivates you have to come as the cost of a competitive salary? Natalie Holder-Winfield talks to Christoph Lueneburger, author of A Culture of Purpose: How to Choose the Right People and Make the Right People Choose You about these and many other questions that challenge the notions of engagement in today's organizations. During this interview, you'll hear how engaged employees add to the diversity of thought in our offices and often contribute new thoughts and improvements. You will also learn how engaged employees are necessary for keeping an organizational mission and purpose honest and in check.
Special Guest: Adrian Phipps, Head of People & Organisation, Arqiva
Adrian is Head of People & Organisation at Broadcast & Media company Arqiva. Over the last 8 years, he has helped both Arqiva and the Insurer More Th>n (part of the RSA group) to make major improvements in employee engagement.
During his time with them, Arqiva has achieved a 1* rating in the Sunday Times Best Companies competition, and RSA was ranked as one of the Top 25 UK companies to work for. Outside of work, he is a proud (if a little tired!) father of a toddler and an 8 month old baby, and loves being out on the water – whether swimming in it or in a sea kayak.
Join us as we talk about how to make engagement “stick” in an organisation. We all know the theory and it sounds great in principle – but very few organisations make the big shifts in engagement that we hope for.
Having been part of two organisations that really have made this change, Adrian shares some useful beliefs that organisations need to hold if engagement is going to improve and also some of the practical things you can do to improve engagement where you work.

Special Guest: Mark McKergow
Being a host is an ancient metaphor, but one which has now evolved to become both new and timely in the business world. Now, it is no longer enough for a leader to be heroic, they must also know when to become the host too. But what does being a host actually mean in a business context? 'Host: Six new roles of engagement for teams, organisations, communities and movements' author Dr Mark McKergow has investigated how hosts – and leaders –create engagement by stepping forward and back and being responsive to the needs and wishes of their ‘guests’.
Mark will be talking about how ‘roles’ – as opposed to ‘rules’- of engagement provide a useable and flexible framework for transforming leadership at all levels and settings. The host metaphor is one we all know at some level, yet can enhance and build to an exquisite level of refinement with reflection and practice.

Dr Mark McKergow is the co-author of Host: Six new rules roles of engagement fort teams, organisations, communities and movements (Solutions Books, 2014). He is a speaker, consultant and facilitator who finds new ways to work in tough and ever-changing environments.

Special Guests: Steve O'Neill, John Smythe and Charelle Wigley, members of the Social Engagement Subgroup
'Making strategy social' – is a work stream within the ’Social’ sub group of Engage for Success. It wants to make explicit the best ways and means to blend social media and face to face dialogue to devise and execute better strategy. Crowdsourcing the experience, insight and knowledge of employees as well as leaders adds value to strategy design and delivery - in what might otherwise default to a traditional 'top down' process.
The small steering group behind this work stream wants to create a product that will help capture what organisational leaders - 'the C suite’ - needs to think about in making strategy development and implementation more ‘social’ in orientation - both in mindset as well as use of technology.
Join us as we discuss what this work stream is focusing on and find out how you can get involved.
