A multimedia learning experience allows users to discover how relationship
patterns can spiral throughout an organization with consequences for
productivity, profitability and customer relations. They become aware
of the need for organizational leadership, teamwork and accountability
at all levels. Video dramas draw attention to the core challenges that
can influence organizational effectiveness: diversity noise, depleting
relationship patterns, cultural miscommunication and misunderstandings.
THE TRAINING CENTER
Users can access multimedia learning options: speeches, and opportunity
to participate in an interactive panel discussion with experts and printout
text options. The organizational assessment activity allows users to
make an assessment of their perceptions of the current reality in their
own organization. There is a special focus on diversity, relationship
and culture as a bottom line organizational challenge.
In a simulated organizational library the users can learn about the
bottom line needs for change, and how diversity, relationship and culture
are a competitive advantage. They can find answers to strategic questions
like: What is the challenge? Why change? What are the barriers and opportunities?
Who is responsible? How to change and lead with differences? The library
provides users with group activities, information that can be printed-out,
questions for discussion and much more.
DEVELOPING 'PEOPLE SKILLS'
Organizational Effectiveness will prepare leaders, managers, and employees
for the "people skills" that will enable their organizations to deal
more effectively with changing realities (demographics,the global economy,the
reality of increased diversity in today's workplace and marketplace).
Users experience that the people and management skills, in this simulated
organization, are strenuously tested when relating across differences:
listening, feedback, facilitation of team work, facilitation of change,
negotiation across differences, management, problem-solving and decision-making,
leadership, communication, coaching and mentoring, conflict management,
strategic thinking, etc.
