Learn how your corporate culture affects how people communicate with one another, and vice versa

All too often, companies view “culture” as something interesting but not necessarily important. United Airlines’ recent public relations nightmare involving a mistreated passenger, a viral video and the company’s struggle to respond appropriately in the spotlight is now well-known, and Delta’s threat to throw a family off a plane over their refusal to give up a seat they’d paid for are just the latest examples of how corporate culture gone bad can cause problems. Even smaller companies struggle every day with how to build strong, open cultures that reward compliance and openness.

Dealing with petty employee squabbles is harmful to your culture and takes up unnecessary time for managers and leads. Companies with “bad” cultures are not as productive or profitable as those with open cultures that focus on collaboration and knowledge sharing. When employees are empowered to deal with their issues directly, managers have time and focus on the big picture to move the organization forward.

Culture reflects and affects how companies take care of (and retain) their customers, but it also translates to dollars and cents – whether by avoiding PR nightmares and lawsuits or by ensuring smooth operations among team members. United Airlines is only the most recent example in the news of a company with a culture in dire need of change. Social media has made the customer’s ability to expose instances of bad culture only too easy. Is your company ready for a culture revolution?

During this session, leading medical management executive Ryan Patano will review a time-tested strategy for helping employees deal directly with one another when they have issues in order to build a strong corporate culture from the base up. This method, which managers and HR professionals can learn, adapt to their company and teach others, can help employees have direct, open and honest discussions with each other in order to help create a more open and honest culture. Learning this process can help your company’s managers avoid becoming embroiled in employee disputes, which will free up the managers to focus on larger operational issues and improve your bottom line. Save time and money – and improve your corporate culture – with these tips and tricks.
