Leaders set the pace for creating, defining, and refining the workplace culture and establishing values that reflect. A positive workplace and team culture reflects our communities; it can be leveraged to enhance project success, improve employee engagement, drive performance, and foster innovation.

The concept of a workplace culture encompasses many different characteristics of a business. Culture has visible components in the way that a business looks and how employees dress, but it really thrives in the attitudes of employees, in the setting of goals and in the communication of business values to workers and customers.

The focus of this webinar is on providing leaders with strategic insight to harnessing the creative talent within their teams – creating the ideal environment for innovation. Leaders must develop engaging workplace cultures in order to inspire effectively. That environment is one that values relationships, personal growth, positive reinforcement, and brainstorming – a place where everyone’s ideas matter.

Learning Objectives

This presentation will enable participants to understand what workplace culture really means and how to create a culture where people and performance thrive, driving innovation. More specifically, it will enable participants to enhance leadership skills and implement effective strategies for:

  • Fostering innovation and problem-solving skills;
  • Supporting project challenges and skills shortages;
  • Improving employee satisfaction and retention;
  • Providing better client service; and
  • Broadening team engagement.

Webinar Outline

The webinar is a combination of subject matter presentation, video examples, and group engagement. This interactive presentation is divided into 4 sections:

  • Introducing and examining the concept of workplace culture and how it drives organizational success and innovation.
  • Outlining the impacts of the work environment on team engagement (includes discussing the inter-relationship between culture, values, teamwork and performance).
  • Outlining leadership strategies for communicating and engaging teams to attain high performance and high fulfillment.
  • Providing best practice recommendations and action plans for creating a positive workplace culture.
