Reconnecting Workspaces w/ Jennifer J Britton
February 9, 2023
Hosted by Alex Fullick, MBCI, CBCP, CBRA, v3ITIL
The workspace is changing, and the pandemic put that change into 'hear gear'. I talk with recognized expert in the area of Group and Team Coaching, and author or "Reconnecting Workspaces", Jennifer J. Britton. We talk about: 1. The differing roles of a leader and team member, 2. Groups vs teams, 3. Company culture and how it influences teams etc. (you'll notice I get really into this topic), 4. The TRIAD of Trust, Safety, and Connection, and how it impacts the workspace, 5. Leadership, 6. Conflict and its causes (Yes, it still happens in the virtual world), 7. How to address conflict. Jennifer provides some insights on a very timely and current subject, which is impacted people around the globe. With so many people working remotely it's necessary for us to reconnect our workspaces, and Jennifer does a great job of helping to understand some of the ways we can do this right...and what might be causing us to look at it incorrectly. Enjoy!
Preparing for the Unexpected
Thursday at 10 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Preparing for the Unexpected is about how people, organizations and communities plan, prepare, test, communicate and respond to sudden unplanned events such as natural and manmade disasters and crises. The show is for everyone who wants an understanding of how plans are created for individuals, organizations and communities and for anyone who wants to know what they can do in their own lives to help protect themselves from unexpected events.
There is a myth that disasters happen to others but in reality, they happen to everyone. It's just a matter of when and how well-prepared you are. The greater the level of awareness, communication and knowledge, the quicker one bounces back from adversity.
The overall aim of Preparing for the Unexpected is to reduce the suffering, effects and impacts caused as a result of disasters and unexpected life events by increasing knowledge and awareness of Business Contingency and Disaster Planning and related activities.
