    Widening the Talent Pool: A Surprising Solution to Hiring Woes (feat. Petra Schmidt)

    Widening the Talent Pool: A Surprising Solution to Hiring Woes (feat. Petra Schmidt)

    Having trouble sourcing new talent? Here’s a surprising solution for expanding your talent pool.
     
    Consider offering an apprenticeship at your company. But, what about training and experience?
     
    Most executives and entrepreneurs look to hire employees who have a college degree, or that already have a certain amount of experience. Instead, challenge the notion that talent must complete a bachelor’s degree before providing value. Find and retain capable talent through apprenticeship.
     
    On the latest episode of The Enlightened Executive podcast, Petra Schmidt, a managing partner at Aon’s Enterprise Client Group and member of Aon’s Apprentice Program Leadership Group, explains the benefits of the apprenticeship model and how to use it to expand your talent pool and drive employee retention.

    Driving innovation and creativity from within (feat. Kaihan Krippendorff)

    Are entrepreneurs the main drivers of innovation? 
     
    Conventionally, the most groundbreaking ideas are thought to come from entrepreneurs and executives. But innovative ideas can come from passionate and driven employees as well, if you know how to unleash the power of their creativity. 
     
    Without psychological safety, employees won’t feel comfortable brainstorming or sharing their ideas out loud with the rest of the group. As a leader, you need to create the conditions that allow your employees to thrive, contribute, feel engaged, and collaborate with one another. 
     
    Want to encourage innovation in your organization? 
     
    In the latest episode of The Enlightened Executive podcast, bestselling author Kaihan Krippendorff, shares his process for encouraging innovative ideas and explains how leaders can create a psychologically safe environment to foster creativity in the workplace.
