  • Wells Fargo: An Object Lesson in the Connection Between the Employee Experience and the Customer Experience

    Written by: Matthew Wride | October 20, 2016

    employee experience

    It’s been a tough few weeks for Wells Fargo, and that’s probably a colossal understatement.

Instead of creating an employee experience aligned with Wells Fargo’s values, they created an environment where employees who missed their targets had to work overtime or on the weekends….

  • 3 Ways to Tear Down Silos and Boost Your Business Intelligence

    Written by: Kyle Ferguson | October 19, 2016

    business intelligence

    Business intelligence departments are the visionaries of organizations. They’re focused on the next generation of products. So they often don’t feel a need to be in constant contact with IT or marketing teams. Likewise, the IT and marketing employees tend to stick to their own departments, preferring to work and socialize with those who are cut from the same professional cloth. Most leaders see this separation as a positive one; they think a little competition among departments improves performance. But that bias, grouping like with like, is also what drives us to create silos in our businesses, and it’s a habit we need to break…. Read More»

    Written by: Dr. Karen Keller | October 12, 2016

    influence

    You already know that launching and developing a good idea takes massive amounts of influence. Many fantastic ideas lie on the ash heap of history merely because someone couldn’t influence others to adopt the idea. But you may not realize that you might be sabotaging your own idea and influence. Often, the selling of an idea was actually sabotaged by the creator because he or she hadn’t developed the skills to persuade others to give credence to the idea…. Read More»


  • Age is Just a Number: How Peer-to-Peer Learning Can Strengthen a Multigenerational Workforce

    Written by: Blake Beus | October 11, 2016

    multigenerational workforce

    Companies today face a multigenerational workforce that spans up to four generations. It’s not uncommon for a fresh-out-of-college millennial to join a company that has workers with 30 or more years of experience.
