    Agility: The New Competitive Divide – Preparing for Success in the Era of AI
    Summary
    Today organizations need to gather and act on information, make decisions quickly and implement them to meet the rapidly-evolving requirements of customers and the business environment. Many people call the ability to do so successfully “agility” and it is becoming increasingly important in this era of digital transformation and advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI).
    What You’ll Learn
    This Business Briefing presents Dale Carnegies’ latest research examining organizational competencies that support agility, which we discuss specifically in the context of the massive changes that are anticipated from the implementation of AI. We provide a framework for leaders, addressing important considerations for those who want to approach building agility within their organization in a focused, deliberate way.
    How It Will Help You
    According to a recent Forbes Insights survey of more than 1,000 C-level executives, 81% of executives consider agility to be the most important characteristic of a successful organization.  Understanding what it takes to build agility, as well as employees’ current attitudes toward and expectations of AI, can provide important insights for business leaders undertaking their own agility transformations and a clear focus for their agility-enhancing efforts.
     
    Artificial Intelligence: Preparing People for the Human-Machine Partnerships of the Future
    Summary
    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the way people live and work, promising trillions in economic impact and massive advancements in predictability, productivity and personalization. Researchers predict that by 2030, 70% of all companies will have deployed AI and it could impact as many as 60% of all jobs. Leaders who hope to benefit from AI’s full potential, including those responsible for developing human capital, have a lot to think about. 
    What You’ll Learn
    We’ll review key research from outside experts about the impact AI is expected to have on the workplace as well as new findings from Dale Carnegie & Associates on employees’ attitudes toward AI and its use in specific applications. We’ll also share the skills needed for people to work most effectively alongside AI and three imperatives that should be part of plans to prepare people when undergoing digital transformation of any kind.
     
    How It Will Help You
    Understanding the impact significant technological change in the workplace may have on employees and the corporate culture can help leaders ensure that productivity gains from technology aren’t offset by losses in employee engagement and that their workforce is prepared with the right skills to support successful implementation. Even if you’re not deploying artificial intelligence now, developing insights into how to encourage employees to become advocates can benefit any major change initiative on your horizon.
     
    Creating Cultures that Engage and Retain Millennials and Generation Z
    Summary
    Their work habits are different. Their values are different. They care about work life balance and being part of an organization with values and principles that are important to them. And they will soon make up a majority of the workforce – they are the Millennial generation. 
    What you will learn: 

    • Why employee engagement matters and the state of engagement today
    • What’s uniquely important to Millennials
    • The difference between fact and fiction and how stereotyping can lead us awry
    • What you can do to better engage the Millennial and Generation Z workforces
    How It Will Help You
    Dale Carnegie conducted a study to uncover what drives engagement among millennials and to identify what is similar and dissimilar about this generation and generation Z so that leaders can better develop an environment that engages and retains the new generations of today’s workforce.   We will present the research and practical applications for engaging your younger employees.

    Uncovering Leadership Blind Spots: Discovering the Pathway to Motivating Your Employees
    Summary
    Leadership matters. Leaders at the senior level strive to create a culture of engagement, while leaders on the front line need to motivate employees daily to drive results. Regardless of level, most leaders "think" they’re demonstrating the qualities of an effective leader, but the findings from a new study indicate otherwise. Our research found that:
     
    Only 17% of employees are satisfied in their job.
    …And 45% of employees are planning on leaving their job in the next 12 months.
     
    What You’ll Learn
    Through a recent global employee study, Dale Carnegie identified specific areas where leaders are falling short – we call these “leadership blind spots”. In this Business Briefing, we identify the leadership attributes that are critical to organizational performance and find out what your leaders may be missing.
    How It Will Help You
    • Identify which leadership trends from our research may be impacting your organization
    • Learn how your leaders can drive employee retention and satisfaction
    • Uncover common leadership blind spots that may be undermining your corporate culture
    • Start to identify your organization’s leadership performance gaps
    Transforming Attitudes and Actions: How Senior Leaders Create Engaging Workplace Cultures
    Summary
    Corporate culture just may be the most important item on your agenda, but it’s not likely to be a line item on your budget.  It is frequently addressed in meetings, but the least actioned upon.  Culture is the thing that you do when you have the time or a little extra budget.  However, we all know that the right corporate culture provides the foundation for sustainable growth and profit.  Workplace culture determines how employees see themselves as part of the organization, how they relate to customers, how they interact with authority, approach problem-solving, how they understand the business overall, make strategic decisions, describe their company’s purpose and more. 
     
    What You’ll Learn
    In a recent survey, Dale Carnegie examined the perceptions of senior leaders as they relate to the strength of their own company cultures, beliefs about its importance and impact, and actions they are taking to improve it.  We identified Culture Champions, companies who successfully create cultures that engage employees, and uncovered the attitudes and behaviors that set them apart from the others.   We will reveal the 5 Areas of Focus for High-Performing Cultures.
    How It Will Help You
    Driving a culture that engages employees is a critical element for success and our fundamental responsibility as leaders. It’s not as simple as many business blogs would suggest. Successful corporate culture is not a mission statement on the wall or merely defined by the work environment you create.  Fads like installing a ping pong table, open creative space, or free craft beer is not what makes a great corporate culture. You will understand the 5 Areas of Focus that Culture Champions say are critical to High-Performing Cultures, and what Culture Champions are saying is important to measure in your own organizations.
