Webinar Preview: Buried Alive: Human Productivity in the 21st Century

The Agony and the Ecstasy—Building Innovation Capability

By Peter Mulford, Executive Vice President, BTS Does your organization have the managerial know-how to innovate? If so, do your managers know the behaviors they must change in order to cultivate a culture of innovation? For most companies, in our experience, the answer is no.

Companies are composed of human beings, who bring their culturalization (or lack of it) to the job. Thus, they set the pace for the tree (company) in question. Business professionals are the sum of their life experiences. People, like organizations, develop, grow, and thrive. If not, they are of little market value in a career.

Supercompetent Speaking: Reading Your Audience

By Laura Stack, MBA, CSP A good speech adapts to meet an audience’s needs. Good speakers maintain awareness of the audience throughout the entire presentation and make adjustments as necessary. How do you know if your audience is “with” you? What is your audience thinking and feeling? How do you read them? This doesn’t require telepathy, just a type of sensory intelligence derived from careful attention and experience.
