Battle Ready: Cultivating Culture through Trust, Teamwork, Purpose, and Ownership
In-Person Tuesday 06/13/2023 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level, Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
When leaders make organizational culture their primary focus, employee engagement, retention, and performance skyrocket. 

VP-47 was down on their luck.  Two Commanding Officers were fired for personal misconduct.  The disgraced Skippers represented the tip of the iceberg; a squadron mired in management misconduct and failed leadership.  One year later the Sailors at VP-47 took command of their destiny, and their efforts ranked the squadron #1 in morale, leadership, and communications.  Cultivating culture through trust, teamwork, purpose, and ownership was essential in VP-47's rise to the top.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand that organizational culture's impact on employee performance is profound and is completely within the control of the leader.
  • Establishing trust is ultimately the leader's responsibility and will require the leader to get uncomfortable during intentional efforts to show care.
  • Encourage teamwork by creating opportunities for your employees to come together, policies to keep them together, and incentives to encourage them to work together.
  • Link your employees' purpose to our unknown desire to serve others.
  • Leverage the power of ownership by communicating what success looks like and letting your employees chart the course.
