Details

Creating a ‘speak up culture’ is now a pressing strategic imperative for many organisations. Ensuring employees can challenge malpractice and therefore prevent tragedy and corporate disaster is one reason. Enabling employees to offer ideas in an ever-increasing competitive environment is another. 


Outline

Many approaches aimed at improving dialogue and upward / downward communication are simplistic and superficial. Managers wonder why, when they say their ‘door is always open’ nobody comes through it. This workshop reports on eight years of research examining the reality of dialogue in organisational settings, focusing on an employee’s moment of choice about whether to speak up. By exploring what goes on in this decision it is possible to see how employees might improve the way they speak up and leaders might significantly improve the way they invite the opinions of others. 
 
Objectives

The masterclass will cover:

  • Why the 'speak-up' culture is such an important issue now
  • What factors influence the decision on whether to speak-up - and why employees stay silent
  • How leaders, often inadvertently, silence their employees - and how they can encourage speaking up
  • What organisational interventions can improve levels of speaking up

A note on the tutor:
 

This one-day Masteclass is led by Megan Reitz, author of Organizational Dialogue: Developing Relational Leadership and Associate Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge Executive Education
