    Show #107 - Engagement Specialist Certification Programme

    in Business

    Karin Volo, Chief Joy Bringer – Co-founder Evoloshen


    There aren’t many of these around! Karin Volo, co-author Engage! is joining us to talk about their new International Cultural Engagement Specialist™ certification programme.


    We’ve invited Karin onto the show to find out more about what is covered in their new engagement specialist certification programme and to talk about the reasons that they have created and launched it.


    As you may already know the Engage for Success movement takes a fairly benign view of commercial models, programmes or activity. In other words we are happy to talk about and share them within the movement but without any intention of ‘sponsorship’. We don’t usually stress this on our show pages, given we interview many gurus / service providers, but we felt that it ought to be made clear for this show that this isn’t our programme although we’re very pleased to have gurus, such as Karin, within our midst who are addressing learning needs in the space.

    Show #108 - NGN's Pioneering Approach to Employee Engagement

    in Business

    Guest: Mark Horsley, Chief Executive Officer, Northern Gas Networks Limited (NGN)


    Against a background of rock bottom employee engagement and customer satisfaction scores, a pioneering new approach to empowering employees has produced a complete turnaround in Northern Gas Networks’ (NGN’s) business, which independent research by the Institute of Customer Services (ICS) shows now has the most engaged employees of any utility business in the UK as well as the highest customer satisfaction.


    This has been driven by a genuinely transformational and inclusive approach that has resulted in all employees being enabled to devise and implement their own solutions to business issues. Employees feel empowered to make a difference, they create their own improvement initiatives and set their own targets and this has helped drive up customer scores to the point where NGN now outperforms some of the UK’s top retail companies.


    NGN’s Chief Executive Officer, Mark Horsley, joins us to talk about how NGN has transformed its customer experience from the inside out.

    in Business

    Special Guest: Frazer Rendell


    When it comes to seeking improved employee engagement scores, hope is not a plan. Join us as we talk about how we need to help businesses understand how they can start to think about practical, measurable actions they can take to help ensure that next time their engagement scores will be higher.


    Frazer comes to the world of engagement from a different perspective to many, as he started his career as a chef and then over the last 20 years worked his way through the hospitality, retail and healthcare industry, to senior management roles within both national and international businesses.


    Frazer is now a Consultant, Speaker and Writer, offering a very practical and measurable approach to employee engagement. He is the Director of E-Trinity Consultancy, where his practical tools help service orientated businesses improve their engagement. 


    Frazer is also involved in a number of E4S special interest groups and is the joint lead of the group looking at Performance Management and its impact on employee engagement.

    Show #101: Employee Engagement - Making It Stick

    in Business

    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.

    Show #100: Leading as a Host – Six New ‘Roles of Engagement’

    in Business

    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. 


    You can read more on our blog here.


    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.  He is co-author of three others books including the best-selling The Solutions Focus (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2007) which has appeared in 11 languages.
