Using Video To Coach

By Tim Hagen on Tue,Oct 17,2017 @ 11:56 AM

Recently, we created a module called video-based coaching. The module teaches specific strategies of how to leverage video as a coaching tool versus always a manager or coach as the sole provider of coaching. We live in a video age and I thought about writing this long-winded articulate article sharing my wisdom until I saw the following video. I think this video will do most of the teaching of how video can impact people's emotions and choices which goes to the basis of what coaching really is-please share your impact or insight of this video and how video can be utilized to coach: Greatest speech I Have Seen

Attitude-How Self-Care Pays Off

By Tim Hagen on Mon,Nov 14,2016 @ 12:47 PM

We all make excuses. Some of the most frequent include:

  • You’re late for work.
  • You spilled your coffee.
  • Your kids were up late at home sick.
  • There’s construction causing a traffic jam.
  • You have a ton of work waiting on your desk.

We're all guilty of letting these excuses stand in the way of getting things done. The question then arises as to how do we all react to these day to day challenges with a positive and upbeat mentality? We all have bad day, but we are supposed to be able to leave our problems at the door.

How to build a culture of trust at your workplace

By Tim Hagen on Thu,Aug 04,2016 @ 11:00 AM

Money, benefits, fun activities- what actually keeps someone motivated to come to work? While an energetic and engaging boss begins the process, what ultimately ends the debate is a trusting, cooperative environment. Not only does the manager need to trust that the employee will complete and fulfill obligations, but the employee needs to trust that the manager creates an environment of standards that they keep as well. In the TED talk by Rachel Botsman, she explains the new, visible nature of evaluating trust in the workplace seen in companies such as Uber, AirBnb, and more. While these companies are succeeding by providing a constant visual of mutual feelings, take a minute to ask yourself if you have such measures in your own place of employment? Not only does this provide a culture of openness and understanding, but a visual expectation of standards. However, do you have measures to take that information one step further? do you have the information without a plan to change or foster the current culture? Check out our free webinar to learn more about how you can change the culture of trust in your workplace today. Link to follow video.

We are pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement with Midland video to help educate the marketplace on workplace culture.

He helps companies use their workplace culture as a marketing and recruitment tool through video. We began exploring some ideas of how to partner and we came up with the idea of creating the “Workplace Culture”, a video blog that educates on how to build, sustain, and market organization’s workplace culture.”

Does Your Culture Recruit or Push Candidates Away?

By Tim Hagen on Thu,Jun 30,2016 @ 11:00 AM

We hear so much about culture today. So many companies are doing monthly or quarterly engagement studies or surveys. We spend so much time trying to build our cultures through training or assessments. Your culture is driven by the interactions between people. The manager to employee conversation is a critical one. This interaction represents either a positive or a not so positive relationship. This becomes an extension of the organization's culture and its ability to recruit candidates.

Measure Your Culture Down to Each Employee

By Tim Hagen on Tue,Jun 28,2016 @ 01:00 PM

If we cannot conduct workplace assessments or surveys without them having to be anonymous so we can get honest and straightforward answers doesn't that speak to our cultural based challenges? A culture should in fact have the ability for people to have direct conversations in interactions without fear or retribution. Measuring peoples engagement and understanding how each and every employee is answered positions each and every manager to have direct and targeted conversations. This is the only way a culture can truly be built on honesty saw cultural growth can be achieved with integrity!

Your Culture Affects Your Sales Success

By Tim Hagen on Wed,Oct 07,2015 @ 12:56 PM

So  often we spend billions of dollars in this country on sales training and sales management programs when in fact one of the most fundamental things affect our ability to sell. It's our culture. Yes, I know many people write about culture but do we really think about culture as a strategic tool when selling to enable our sales teams to be successful? For example, if two employees were sitting in cubicles right next to each other but do not work well together or even get along for that matter how comfortable will they really be making phone calls within earshot of one another?
