Corporate, Business and Industry

Generation Text Online provides interactive and engaging leadership development to guide executives and managers in a step by step method of how to create and maintain a positive, supportive, inclusive and inspiring climate and culture within their organization and in each business unit.

The goal of this leadership development is to provide a transformational model in which to guide company leaders in how to build a positive, inspiring and culturally responsive climate in the workplace.  Participants will walk away from the training with strategies, techniques and routines to use with their teams in order to ensure that their staff is inclusive, tolerant and respectful of people from all cultures.   Activities and videos will be used to illustrate each concept and provide participants with tools to take back to their own business units for implementation.  The framework encourages the development of a mentorship program within the company in order for a cost effective implementation and sustainability.

The Challenges

Communication

Communication plays a fundamental role in all facets of business. It is therefore very important that both internal communication within your organization as well as the communication skills of your employees are effective.

Trust

Without trust, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking suffer.

Respect

When we have most of our interaction with each other through electronic devices, sometimes we forget the simple ways of showing respect to each other in one-on-one situations.

Collaboration

Effective collaboration is important for building off of each others ideas, cooperation and innovation.

Employee Retention

It is easy to pick on someone who isn’t like you.

Transparency

It hurts your business if your team is not working together.

The Outcomes We Want

A productive, positive, supportive and inclusive environment in our workplace.

Creativity.

Productivity.

The Concepts

The foundation of the Generation Text Online program is based on the principals of organizational behavior with a focus on the concept that a positive and supportive culture is directly attributed to positive relationships. Generation Text Online provides a framework for company managers and leadership staff by guiding them in their role in creating and maintaining positive and supportive relationships with their coworkers and their direct reports. The components of the program include a focus on active listening, eye contact, respect, empathy, compassion and trust.  Additional components include a focus on the difference between exclusion and actively including others, as well as a common language that helps individuals categorize their actions and responses into the categories of mean, negative and hurtful vs nice, positive, and supportive.  This language helps individuals understand that what is important when leading people is not to focus so much on their intentions but if their actions resulted in others feeling supported and inspired in the workplace.  The Gen Text framework helps leaders develop a new method of thinking that involves leaders asking themselves eight essential questions to reflect on how their leadership, actions and responses affect their colleagues and direct reports. This ideology and coordinating set of routines provide professionals a foundation to understand the importance of a positive culture, as well as a road map to achieve it. At Generation Text Online we help company executives and managers learn strategies that allow them to do less managing and more leading!

Active Listening

Listen to show respect, and learn the name of the person with which you are speaking.

Problem Solving

Use empathy and compassion skills as you are problem solving.

Sharing Feelings

Open up to one another, even if it makes you vulnerable.

Establish Connections

Form connections between individual, both at school and in personal lives.

Mental Images

Intentions vs. Effects

Understand that intentions are not the same as effects.

The Opportunities
