It's getting to be that time -- when you take stock of what 2015 has brought and work on plans to make 2016 an even better year for you, your team and your business. If you have been involved in the Leadership Pulse over the years, you know that we provide leaders with real-time data on key business indicators; the kind of metrics that can make your 2016 better. Participants can use the data to help develop their teams and improve their businesses.
The Leadership Confidence Pulse opened on Friday, and I am inviting you to take part by spending between 3 and 5 minutes of your time to share your insights on a few key business topics including confidence (key leading indicators we have trended since 2003).
Participating gets you access to on-line bench marking reports, webinars and technical reports as well as articles and case studies. You also can add up to 100 members of your team for confidential team reports, all at no costs. The Leadership Pulse has been and continues to be an important real-time learning process. We share the results with everyone who helps us learn.
The Leadership Pulse is a partnership between the Center for Effective Organizations, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California and eePulse, Inc.
Where will you be on March 8-9 in 2016? If you want to learn from a dynamic group of Employee Resource Group (ERG) leaders as well as senior Diversity and Inclusion and Business executives, you will want to be with us at this 2-day, data-driven workshop. It's a unique learning opportunity for people who want to take ERGs forward and learn through live case studies, exercises that stimulate new thinking and skill building as well as via data collected from ERG members in the participating companies. Our first ERG Summit was in 2013, and since that time we have created new learning via this event, and we also share that accumulated knowledge.
We want to thank the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for hosting the event for us in Seattle, Washington. We also are proud to have Sony Pictures Entertainment as an active sponsor. You can find more information here
Learning moments from our research work:
ERG members are more energized and engaged than their counterparts who are not in ERGS.
ERG members learn to innovate within their ERGs, and they are taking that skill set back to their jobs.
ERG leaders acquire skills that help them develop and become more successful in their core jobs.
Organizations can leverage their ERGs to help drive change; this can be an important asset for organizations that find themselves in need of moving to a continuous change or agile culture.
ERGs are evolving - some organizations are using the term BRG, business resource groups.
