Build Trust. Tell the Stories Employees and Customers really need to hear by Babette Ten Haken

 

This Meeting Will be Online Only
Information to join the meeting will be emailed the day of the meeting
 

Do your internal and external customers trust the stories you tell? Are these stories actually use- or business cases which stop, just when they need to continue? Courageous and compelling storytelling is your key to business growth: acquiring, serving and retaining customers, partners, stakeholders and your colleagues: the internal customers you serve. 

Explore the key elements of legendary storytelling. Rediscover your own Signature Stories, your legends, residing in the stories you currently dismiss as unimportant or bury because these stories are associated with workplace toxicity. By leveraging co-created storytelling, across the organization, successfully reflect the voices of employees, stakeholders and clients. The voices you can design and innovate new products, services and systems around. Leverage a storytelling culture as part of your compelling human capital strategy. When you continuously connect your story to everyone else’s story, you co-create Trust: the most powerful employee and customer experience of all. One of the most powerful human experiences of all. To get to where you need to go, Together.
 
 
Outcomes and Benefits
  • Leverage Signature Storytelling, Legendary Storytelling, to catalyze more productive and profitable communication and collaboration across your own organization, your partners’ and your clients’, regardless of professional disciplines, job titles, pay grades, levels of education and generations;
  • Poke holes in value silos based on the differentiated value of employees who solve problems differently. A storytelling culture becomes a key component of a purpose-driven human capital strategy; and
  • Develop more visible, relevant and valuable employees who understand how their stories, and “what they do,” are connected to “what everyone else does” in attracting and retaining partners and clients.

Managing Research Projects & Programs by Jim Walke, MFA, PMP 

 

What do Google, rocket fuel, Gatorade, artificial insemination, MRIs and ultrasounds, television and breathalyzers have in common? Along with a significant percentage of all innovations in technology and healthcare, these have roots in fundamental research performed at a university. U.S. institutions currently spend $75 billion per year on fundamental and applied research, providing the building blocks for another $400 billion per year in government and industry developmental R&D. How can project management be a part of this process, especially at the beginning when the goals are by definition uncertain? How do you make a work breakdown structure for pure knowledge? What are the challenges of working in this sector and managing the business side of science? 


Jim Walke is a Senior Project Manager at the Biocomplexity Institute & Initiative at the University of Virginia.  He is currently PM for a project under the DARPA SocialSim program, modeling the spread and evolution of information online. Formerly, he was PM for an IARPA FunGCAT project with the goal of preventing the accidental or intentional creation of biothreats through DNA manipulation, and also for a six year NIH project under their Bioterror Defense program. Simultaneously, Jim has applied the principles of project management to grant writing, leading successful efforts with scientific teams to secure funding from NIH, NSF, DoD, and other agencies.  He works remotely from Ann Arbor, Michigan.
