Today I officially launched a YouTube channel dedicated to providing information on how to effectively engage employees for the purposes of:
- organizational growth,
- increased profits,
- enhancing employee skills,
- improving the quality of work life, and
- increasing employee retention by offering a more desirable place to work.
You can access the channel at www.youtube.com/tomdevaneconsultant. You can also subscribe on that landing page if you’d like to be informed of my future posts as soon they occur.
The first set of posts provides information on a method that engages groups of people to develop strategic goals and develop action plans to implement them. It could be used by a corporation, a division or large department of a corporation, a government agency, an industry coalition, or community. The method is a Search Conference, and I’ve worked it for over 15 years. It’s been used in a wide variety of places that include Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, the U. S. Forest Service, the FAA, and the government of South Africa. Links to the first three videos, which are all under 15 minutes, are:
- Tapping into Collective Wisdom to Develop Strategic Goals
- What is a Search Conference?
- Design Foundations that Make a Search Conference so Powerful
I selected this as an initial topic because several of my clients are currently interesting using a Search Conference in their strategic planning process.
As this is a new way for me to get information out to people, I’d love your feedback, and any topics you might like to see explored. Please send me your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’m always looking for topics people are interested in so that I can maximize the value of the information I provide.
