    Ep. 87: How To Train Employees To Perform Their Best

    Ep. 87: How To Train Employees To Perform Their Best

    In this podcast episode, DecisionWise Principal Consultant, Dan Hoopes, discusses the topic of job training and how you, as a manager, can help employees perform their best.

    We tend to treat job training as event to help us perform a task. However, if we can tie training with learning and developing as people, it becomes less of an event and more of an application.

    Training is most effective when you can create a cycle of application and reflection, coupled with mentoring and feedback.

    It’s important to remember that your leverage as a manager comes not from your individual contribution but from developing the capabilities of people within your span of control and making them better so you can produce better outcomes.

    Ep. 86: How Managers Can Better Recognize Employees

    Ep. 86: How Managers Can Better Recognize Employees

    In this podcast episode, DecisionWise Principal Consultant, Dan Hoopes, discusses the topic of how managers can better recognize employees in the workplace.

    Everybody likes to be acknowledged (in one form or another) for a job well done. We all like to feel validated and yet, many managers are reluctant to give recognition. Why is this?

    “One of the biggest travesties to happen with organizations if for a manager to say, ‘Well, it’s just their job.’ Well, of course it’s just their job! But who doesn’t like to be recognized for doing well at just their job,” says Dan Hoopes.

    He continues, “If I recognize someone for the things they are doing, it increases their discretionary effort. They’re more highly engaged and they know how to produce faster because they’ve gotten feedback that what they’ve done is right, and they want to do it even more and more.”

    Learn more about these concepts and ideas on giving recognition in this insightful conversation.

    Ep. 84: Growth – Being Challenged In Ways That Result in Progress (REBROADCAST)

    Ep. 84: Growth – Being Challenged In Ways That Result in Progress (REBROADCAST)

    Growing in our jobs doesn’t always mean getting a promotion or a raise; these are components of satisfaction. Growth is about mastering new skills, taking on challenges, and pushing to be better—both professionally and personally.

    In this insightful conversation, Kristin Chapman, Principal Consultant at DecisionWise, explores how individuals can experience growth in their careers, as well as how managers can how managers can foster an environment of growth in their organizations.

    Results from DecisionWise employee surveys show that managers often fail to challenge employees enough to learn and to achieve higher results.

    Similarly, many employees don’t find their work challenging enough to keep them engaged. Imagine the untapped potential! On the other hand, stretching, taken to the extreme, can result in unhealthy stress. Growth strikes the balance between boredom and burnout.
