Geelong HR Roundtable - Unwritten Ground Rules
Our September event will be facilitated by Steve Simpson, who created the concept of UGRs®, or ‘Unwritten Ground Rules’ as a tool to help leaders understand and manage workplace culture.
Since teaming up with his great friend and business partner, Stef du Plessis, the concept has been developed considerably and is now receiving acclaim across the planet.
One way of understanding UGRs is to consider some you may pick up in an organisation:
At our meetings it isn’t worth complaining because nothing will get done
The only time anyone gets spoken to by the boss is when something is wrong
The company talks about good customer service, but we know they don’t really mean it, so we don’t really have to worry about it
It is the UGRs that drive people’s behaviour – incredibly, these are rarely if ever discussed openly.
Steve and Stef have created a range of strategies that can be implemented in organisations to strategically improve workplace cultures. There are two broad streams of initiatives that have been developed. One stream relates to systematic processes that need to be put into place to ensure that UGRs are 'top of mind' in the organisation. The second stream of initiatives relates to improving skill sets of both leaders and staff.
The state of workplace culture relates directly to productivity and performance and is a critical challenge for HR practitioners today. We are privileged to have a globally recognised presenter such as Steve available to facilitate our conversation around the topic of Unwritten Ground Rules.
Please bring your team to get maximum value!
