While recognition programs are expanding in scope and influence in the marketplace, “employee recognition” has a growing image problem. Among many frontline staff and supervisors, some of the most common reactions to recognition are cynicism, sarcasm, or apathy. Why? Because much recognition is viewed as contrived, impersonal, and disingenuous.
The perception of inauthenticity is a critical issue that needs to be understood and addressed. If it is not, our actions, programs, and resources will become (more of) a source of jokes, derision, and viewed as a waste of resources.
In this presentation, Dr. White will explore the nature of genuineness and what factors lead to a perception of inauthenticity. Is authenticity reality- or perception-based? What practices do we need to examine (and possibly, revise)? What are the results of being perceived as not being “real”? What can we do practically to address the issues?
Today’s workforce is fundamentally changing. Organizations are flatter, more agile, and require even better retention strategies. Yet, organizations still deploy the same old-school engagement strategies that don’t speak to modern employees. We all want the same thing. Employees who are, engaged, aligned with business objectives and recognized for the results they produce. But, old-school strategies don’t work. 70% of GDP is driven by the knowledge and services-based economy, yet so many workplaces still engage their employee base as if we were in the industrial age. Archaic employee recognition programs are expensive and ineffective. Business has become more acutely competitive. Engaged, aligned and recognized employees provide businesses with the necessary competitive advantage.

Is lack of accountability limiting your organization's success?
Do any of the following "accountability killers" exist in your team?
* People commit to do something, but then don't do it
* Feedback doesn't exist
* Employees cover up mistakes
* You hear, "that's not my fault" or "that's not my job" all the time
* Employees are always blaming others
* Or hoping someone else will fix the problem
If so, then our course can definitely help you! Sign up for "Installing an
Accountability-based Culture" on April 22 from 2pm to 3pm ET.
A highly interactive workshop which defines culture, defines accountability, and provides a proven four-step process for installing an accountability-based culture.

When it comes to bridging the engagement gap, are your managers part of the problem or part of the solution? Most studies reveal that managers not only play a large role in whether or not employees are engaged, many don't seem to know what will actually engage them. This session will show you how to apply current engagement research, along with more than 30 years of research on thinking, learning and the brain, to transform your leadership development strategies and build a strong engagement advantage. By exploring the impact of thinking preferences on communication, work processes, team development and coaching efforts you’ll learn how to impact your engagement results by developing leaders who see past their own preferences to focus on what will truly engage, motivate and retain their employees.
