5:40 PM Thrival: Creating a High-Performing, Resilient Organization

The success or failure of any organization often hinges on one key factor: The ability of its leaders to listen, both externally and internally. When building an organization that can maintain high performance throughout changing business conditions, the two fundamental building blocks are Inclusion and Transparency. Adam Tanner and Tony Mitchell will walk through key indicators of a high-performing culture: Accountability, Trust, Engagement, Agility, Better decision making. Leaders who practice ‘active listening’ across the organization will tap into a wealth of actionable insight that would otherwise be difficult to access. Enabling and encouraging people to communicate inclusively and transparently helps to cultivate a ‘listening culture’ - which in turn provides the organization with authentic feedback to drive or support meaningful change.
