In our Choosing Respect Survey, a startling 80% of participants said they have experienced incivility within their own workplace. 100% of participants agree that any form of incivility harms the team. This negative impact spreads through the organization, to the customers, and your ability to achieve inclusion.
In the workplace respect and civility are paramount—and without it you will struggle to create an inclusive culture where individuals feel they belong.

Leverage Inclusion...Drive Engagement thru the Employee Lens with Lynn Cowart and Lindy Williams Inclusion is key to building a high-engagement culture -- one where everyone feels a part of the team and everyone is motivated to do their best work. Although the leader typically takes on the role of driving the culture, he or she is not solely responsible for developing an environment of engagement and inclusion. Employees play important roles in the engagement and inclusion equation, also known as being an inclusive colleague. Part two of the two-part series.
Leverage Inclusion...Drive Engagement with Lynn Cowart and Lindy Williams Employee engagement is a hot topic, but not necessarily a new one, nor one that stands alone. Years of research suggests that individuals cannot be engaged if they are not included, and that engagement and inclusion is a job for employees and for managers. In this 30-minute webinar, Lynn Cowart and Lindy Williams from Talent Dimensions dive into the benefits of combining inclusion and engagement, and how shared ownership between employee and leader is a ‘must have’ in today’s ever-changing work environment. Part one of the two-part series.
Career Development: Today’s Meta-Priority with Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni
Given the nature of today’s workplace, instantaneous access to information, and pressure to meet the ever-escalating expectations of customers & shareholders, leaders juggle an unprecedented number of priorities. Productivity and performance. Costs. Employee engagement. Quality. Scarce resources. Retention. Yet, research suggests that if leaders can address one key priority particularly well, the rest follow. And that ‘meta-priority’ is career development. Study after study links career development to employee satisfaction, engagement, retention, productivity, and even revenue and profitability.
Hello Stay Interviews with Beverly Kaye
Managers should routinely ask their best employees this simple question: “What will keep you here?” Unfortunately, most managers don’t ask until they conduct employee exit interviews. By then, the question comes too late. Stay interviews are one-on-one conversations with employees about what they care about most on the job, and how you can adjust or coordinate their circumstances to make them happier. When you deploy stay interviews correctly, they engage staff members and increase their productivity, This session provides a solid, time-sensitive suggestion: Instead of waiting until the exit interview to learn why individuals are leaving, create a series of stay interviews.
Career Talk: Demystifying the Career Conversation with Beverly Kaye
Great leaders know that they can’t take the development of talent for granted. Individuals at every level want to report to someone who understands their talents, challenges them, opens channels for their development and links them to useful resources. They want someone to take an interest in their growth. If an individual believes their leader truly cares about their development, their engagement will be high. Individuals need to learn that their leaders are not responsible for managing their career….only their work. And leaders need to learn that their job is to support the development process not fix it or hand over the next move. This is the presentation that Beverly Kaye gave at the LEAD2015 Conference.

ON DEMAND WEBINARS
Bold Conversations on Career Development with Lynn Cowart (2016)
Critical career conversations between employees and their leaders on what it takes to ‘grow and develop’ are many times a ‘check the box’ activity. The Individual Development Plan (IDP) and Performance Management (PM) aspect of a leader’s role is becoming dated and some suggest ‘tired’.
Why? These conversations have often evolved into a routine, one-sided process where everyone is focused on simply getting it done. What’s left out of the equation is how to tailor these critical career conversations to the individual’s specific needs combined with the leader’s unique strengths and skills.
In this webinar we will introduce how to have an energizing dialogue that results in powerful development outcomes for not only the individual, but also the manager and the organization. This webinar will also introduce how to leverage various coaching styles in conversations; the different type of development conversations and when to use each; and a methodology for implementing a successful coaching plan.
