They also help us build relationships, increase psychological safety and trust, open up thinking, and uncover hidden thoughts. * Instead of yes-no questions which often create a false binary, ask a rating question e.g. On a scale of 1-5, how confident are you in this plan? * Asking what, why and how will lead to different answers so be thoughtful about what question you’re asking. * Asking what if, how might, and why not will open the door to more creative, alternative thinking. * How you ask and how you respond also impact what type of response you will get now and in the future. * Asking a difficult question in a calm, warm tone shows support. * Responding to an answer you don’t like or didn’t expect with appreciation will encourage people to be honest going forward.

Forecast 2021: The “S” in ESG, spotlight on societal investments
In our Forecast 2021 podcast series, we’re focused on preparing you for the year ahead by offering insights to help you better understand and manage some of the opportunities and challenges that your company might face—think policy, technology, and other big picture topics. This week, we conclude our deep dive into ESG by focusing on the “S,” or social, initiatives. Heather Horn sits down with Aaron Gilcreast, PwC’s Global Valuation Leader, and Andreas Ohl, a partner in PwC’s National Office, to look at how companies are rebalancing their strategy to address societal challenges and building measurement frameworks that help prioritize and report on these societal initiatives. Topics include: * *1:05 - Overview.* We begin by highlighting a few big societal challenges—from globalization impacting supply chains to employee wellness and satisfaction—and how the companies that work to address these matters gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. * *4:14 - Value creation vs. value destruction. *To calculate ROI on societal investments, organizations need to begin thinking about the measurement of these intangibles, which is part of a disciplined capital allocation process and robust reporting.    * *10:44 - The time is now. *The momentum behind ESG is powerful as a result of increasing interest from investors and consumers. But it’s good for the company too. We look at the brand-enhancing benefits of translating intangible attributes into quantifiable metrics.  * *20:44 - Global challenges. *We talk through some of the challenges in executing and reporting on societal initiatives faced by companies with a global footprint. * *22:59 - Key takeaways. *Companies have a role to play in proactively addressing societal issues, but they must be disciplined to build resilient assets and maximize value.  Want to learn more about ESG?

514: The Way to Lead Online Events, with Tim Stringer

He provides productivity, technology and workflow coaching, consulting and training to people and organizations, large and small, all over the planet. His technology specializations include Asana, Daylite, OmniFocus, and Trello. He supports many people in productivity though his website LearnOmniFocus.com -- and also through the Holistic Productivity approach that he developed after coming face-to-face with cancer back in 2008. Tim consults to leaders and organizations on how to use Zoom effectively and recently launched a new course: Leading Effective Zoom Events. In this conversation, Tim and I overview some of the common mistakes of online events, how online can produce even better results than in-person, and ways to engage people quickly. Plus, we review some of the key technology that will support your organization’s outreach efforts. Key Points It’s often a mistake to assume that you’ll be able to lead online events with the same planning and design for in-person events. Opening a meeting early and using the five-minute rule to begin with icebreakers, breakouts, polls, or reactions will help engage people in the event quickly. For events with many people or higher visibility for your organization, have a dedicated technology co-pilot so that hosts and speakers can stay focused on being present. Virtual lounges (with a dedicated host), spotlight and multi-spotlight, practice sessions, and preassigned breakouts can all help the technology disappear and the human connections to take center stage. Some organizations are discovering they are more successful with online events than past in-person ones. Many have had such a positive experience that they plan to continue leveraging virtual events after the pandemic.

56. Why Are So Many Companies Building Talent Marketplaces? Interview with Ina Gantcheva
My guest on this week’s episode is Ina Gantcheva, a Principle in Deloitte’s Human Capital Practice and a leading authority on talent marketplace. In Ina’s words, talent marketplace has the potential to change the way organisations think about three fundamentals. One, work, by fractionalising work for increased efficiency. Second, the workforce, by unlocking greater potential and value. And finally third, the workplace, by breaking down silos. In our conversation Ina and I discuss: * The four P’s of iterative dynamic talent marketplace design. That is purpose, plan, program and platform * The role of HR in supporting the transformation and associated change management involved in talent marketplace * Examples of companies who have implemented a successful talent marketplace and the benefits they are enjoying as a result * The opportunities that talent marketplace provides to employees * How the pandemic has helped reshape the approach to talent marketplace * Whether talent marketplace will mean that jobs won't exist anymore. This episode is a must listen for anyone interested or involved in HR transformation, internal mobility, workforce planning, people analytics and HR technology. So that is Business Leaders, Chief HR Officers and anyone in a people analytics, learning or HR business partner role. Support for this podcast is brought to you by gloat.
