Learning at Work Week
Learning cultures are integral for the success of any business. They stimulate curiosity and provide teams with the opportunity to improve their overall quality of service. Creating opportunities for staff to learn more about the requirements of their organisation adds purpose to their role. As this valuable exchange takes place, both employer and staff prosper through developing their knowledge.
Soft skills create the biggest impact on workplace cultures.
It’s a well-known fact that every organisation needs their staff to perform to their full capability. It’s vital for achieving business goals, outperforming competitors and becoming an employer of choice. Mastering soft skills has a positive impact on teams and can assist in driving up the standard of everyone’s behaviour. It’s a win-win situation, adding value to the organisation’s culture.
Taking part in Learning at Work Week will give employees the opportunity to develop their skills whilst focusing on the needs of your organisation.
Here’s a few of the ways to take advantage:
- Developing communication skills. When individuals need to participate in courageous conversations, it takes a willingness to learn. When two or more people converse to make decisions or share ideas, the discussion needs to be meaningful. It requires substantial interpersonal skills to make communication effective, targeted and results driven. This one-to-one communication doesn’t come naturally for the majority of people, yet without it productivity is stifled, costing time and money.
- Addressing ‘Drama Triangles’. If you work alongside other human beings you’ve probably experienced all three characters of a drama triangle! They consist of the victim, the rescuer and the persecutor. This model of human interaction demonstrates how toxic behaviours not only damage relationships, but sustain and reproduce unhealthy work cultures. The roles are common in all sorts of workplaces and impact the tone of the overall culture.
- Fixing a Negative Culture. If the culture is negative, combative or uncooperative it leads to conflict and resentment. Personal attacks, blame and criticisms, in the context of the workplace, evoke feelings of guilt or shame for those on the receiving end. Unsurprisingly, this counterproductive process leaves colleagues depleted, leads to higher staff turnover and impacts profitability. There are proven and effective methods to break the cycle of workplace dramas, enabling you to build a healthier, more productive culture. Tackling your drama triangle is one of the most effective ways to improve your workplace culture.
Recognising self-awareness and mental well being. If mental well being describes how you feel and the way you cope with stresses at work, then self-awareness is a conscious knowledge of those feelings and how they affect performance. Supporting staff to know themselves improves the quality of relationships. It develops confidence, raises self-esteem and stimulates courageous conversation. The significant impact of soft skills empower teams to collaborate and outperform competitors. Investing in self-awareness and mental well being for teams is one of the most important things an employer can do.
