Dr. Diane Hamilton Helps Improve Corporate Culture, Which in Turn Improves Engagement and Innovation
What Does an Organization's Culture Have to do With Employee Innovation, Conflict, Engagement, and Loyalty?
Wouldn’t having an expert regarding curiosity, perception, emotional intelligence, and other behavioral skills be an asset to your organization’s culture? Dr. Diane Hamilton shares the key to creating a positive culture that leads to increased engagement, innovation, and more that leads to productivity.
Imagine your team is facing a problem. Someone, let’s say Joe, the IT technician, has sent a rather passive-aggressive email about having no time for the office meeting on Thursday. Anxiety fills the air as everyone opens their inboxes, seeing another problem to handle.
Each team member responds from a different perspective.
- Susan uses her intuition, deciding that the meeting isn’t necessary.
- Paul looks at it logically and suggests postponing it to Monday.
- Megan believes that the solution lies in more flexibility for the stressed team.
- Stephen sees a need for a better sense of structure.
No one is right, and no one is wrong. They all have proper support for their opinions, yet the team still needs help with a problem. For example, a meeting needs to happen, but no one can agree on when.
Wouldn’t having the tools to solve these problems more easily be nice? Keep your team on the same page, avoid negative feelings, and stop wasting time.
In today’s evolving climate, isn’t building a culture that leads to improved productivity critical? In addition, to avoid conflict, building empathy is vital.
With over three decades of experience researching, writing, teaching, and speaking on curiosity, perception, emotional intelligence, and other soft skills, Dr. Diane Hamilton knows how to apply her expertise to help your organization improve performance by refining your team’s behaviors.
After all, employees leave bosses, not companies. Engage your employees in working together to solve problems; you’ll increase their loyalty and decrease conflicts.
