    #20 How to activate teams and keep them engaged?

    #20 How to activate teams and keep them engaged?

    Understanding engagement as a continuous process is key to successful employee communication.

    When it comes to employee engagement, the 'engaged' vs. 'not engaged' binary is rather simplistic. True engagement requires a holistic, on-going investment into creating open modes of communication and dynamic work cultures.

    So, how do we foster these cultures of engagement?

    This is the question that Dr. Eleni Georganta helps us unpack in this episode. Eleni is an Assistant Professor in Work and Organizational Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, and a leading researcher in team dynamics and collaboration optimisation.

    Ready to get your employees engaged? Let's jump right in!

    This episode is presented by Arne Kötting, and was produced by Nina Cerasuolo and Ana Luiza Loio Becil. FutureReady music theme "Botanics" by Elizabells, and sound editing by Carsten Steffens.

    #19 How to introduce the new AI colleague?

    #19 How to introduce the new AI colleague?

    Introducing AI as a colleague may sound crazy, but it can help organizations foster a culture of trust and collaboration in human-AI teams.

    Such an approach requires leaders and employees to think of AI as a valued team member, and to consider how to strategically employ its abilities. It prompts us to think of AI integration as not just mere tech implementation, but as a true cultural transformation.

    To delve into this strategic shift, our host Arne chats to Dr. Eleni Georganta – an Assistant Professor in Work and Organizational Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, and a leading researcher in human-AI collaboration.

After all, every successful tech transformation is strategic. And that includes intentionally crafting messages that educate your employees and help them embrace change.

    The AI revolution has swept through our world just over a year ago – yet, for future-ready organizations, so much is already changing.

    #15 Wie kann Unternehmenskommunikation den KI-Tsunami nutzen?

    Welches Potenzial hat KI in der Unternehmenskommunikation jenseits von ChatGPT? Und wie reiten wir auf den tosenden Wellen des Wandels, die auf uns zukommen werden?
