About the Event

In today’s climate of rapid change, along with high profile workplace claims of bullying, harassment and marginalization of minority groups, employees are rightfully seeking clarity, respect and inclusion. HR, in turn, is demanding ‘a seat at the table’ and is being challenged to be a true strategic partner to the business.

And there’s the rub.  How do we, in HR, truly influence organizational leaders to do the right thing by the people, without coming across as ‘soft’ or ‘ineffectual’?

In this practical, interactive session, emotional intelligence expert, leadership facilitator and organization development professional, Amanda Knight, gets us to consider the essential role dignity needs to play in our people strategies, so that organization goals can be met without destroying culture and engagement.

She will share with us the steps she took to transform a performance management process, and to build an alternative talent review model to the 9-box for succession planning, specifically to support the build of a positive, respectful culture.

Amanda will also help us understand the ‘power paradox’ of leadership, and how to build the essential capability of the 21st century leader, necessary for creating a respectful workplace that values diversity and inclusion.

  • Explore what we mean by ‘dignity’ and how it impacts culture, engagement and performance
  • Discover the principles of performance management and succession planning design that promote dignity and drive high performance
  • Recognize the ‘power paradox’ of leadership and how to build the essential capability of the 21st century leader required for building a respectful workplace that values diversity and inclusion

You will leave this session with a clear perspective on the role dignity has to play in building a respectful and high performing culture, along with tangible tips and tools to shape your people processes and leadership programming.  You will then be able to truly influence the build of a positive, empowering employee experience.
