    Email productivity and a #NewWayToWork

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT).


    Last week we talked about the six steps to building a remarkable workplace, and this week we're going to talk about email productivity and a new way to work.


    Really. Email productivity. We know, we know -- sounds like a contradiction, but it's not. 


    Email as we know it today is outdated and was invented before “Internet” was a household name. Instead of our managing email -- which really manages us -- what we need is a better way to communicate that focuses on deeper engagement and better outcomes. 


    Social tools, and mobile and cloud technologies have significantly changed the expectations of consumers about online communications, social interaction and other collaboration tools.


    When it comes to the technology we use, we want our work experiences to echo our personal lives, while our organizations want tools with company-wide security and scalability.


    It's time for email to act more like a personal assistant. That's something the world of work needs today.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about email productivity and a new way to work with this week’s guest: Carolyn Pampino, Design Director of Collaboration Solutions for IBM.


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: TalentWise, Dice, Hootsuite, IBM Smarter Workforce, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent and HRmarketer Insight.

    Finding Your Productivity Flow

    in Business

    To flow means to move along in a steady, continuous stream. Much like water. When it comes to getting things done, there has to be a flow that you generate. Without it, there is no movement, only stagnation. If things aren’t flowing, then they’re backed up and if things are backed it means you aren’t getting things done and it’s impacting your cash flow.


    Your days, weeks and your environment have to flow in order for you to be at your top level of productivity. During this broadcast I'm going to talk about your productivity flow, what it is and how important it is in the productivity game. I'm also going to share with you how you find your productivity flow. If your days and your things to do are backed up, if you're not moving things along in your day in that steady continuous stream, tune in and listen.

    How Purpose Drives Productivity – Harnessing the Power of Personal Identity

    in Business

    Productivity is like a windmill; the smoother, more consistent, and faster the blades turn, the more productive you tend to be. In taking charge of your productivity, there are three segments – or in windmill terminology, “blades” – that are critical. They are Psychology, Strategy and Sustainability. Without all three of these, your “productivity windmill” is underpowered; it’s just not turning optimally.


    In this episode, our focus is on Psychology and, more specifically, on the importance of purpose as a driver of productivity. Today we are privileged to share the passion that Larry Ackerman brings to the topic of identity and its role in connecting us with our purpose. He will explore with us his perspective on identity as a source of energy that drives our success and fulfillment. When we tap into our true identity, Larry believes that we are unearthing the purpose we are born with.

    Leadership: How to conduct your orchestra

    in Business

    One of my mentors who was a great leader in my eyes, knew just how to inspire me. He told me he couldn’t motivate me that my motivation was within and it was his job to remove the obstacles between me and my motivation. This was very impactful for me and I use this as the basis in my coaching. In my mind Leadership is more like coaching. It is knowing how to inspire and bring out the best in others through recognizing their skills and abilities, enabling them and supporting them in removing the obstacles in their way.  Leadership is at the crux of productivity. That is self leadership as well as leadership of a team. Leaders do need to lead by example. When leadership fails, the team is less effective and efficient and can cost the organization significant sums in lost profits that result from direct and indirect costs.


    Think of your team as a group of musicians. Each one plays beautifully on their own when playing the instrument of their choice. Look at the power that group of musicians has together as they become an orchestra. That is where magic is made as they play together seamlessly. Today we will look what a conductor has to teach about leadership.


    Our Guest: Hugh Ballou


    Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how big or how small. He brings a wealth of experience as a prominent conductor of musical ensembles to his innovative leadership approach.


    He is author of multiple books on Transformational Leadership and works as executive coach, process facilitator, and strategist. As a powerful motivational speaker, he teaches the fine art of leadership employed every day by musical conductors.
