    Smash the Silos: Break through the invisible barriers that are making your job harder and negatively (and silently) impacting business results by preventing communication, and collaboration in your organization.

    Learning Objectives:

    Organizational silos may be making your life as an HR Professional more difficult than it needs to be! During this high energy and interactive 60 minute presentation, HR professionals will:

    1) Learn what silos are, why they still exist and how they impact every area of your business.

    2) Dive into the four buckets of organizational health that drive success and how inadvertently, if we are not vigilant, can be an invisible breeding ground for silos to flourish

    3) Leave with immediately actionable ideas to begin naming, claiming and clearing the silos in your organization so you can support organizational leaders with best practices.

    Presentation Summary:

    Every HR Professional has been put into the situation where they are charged with fixing a poor performing leader or department in the organization. Perhaps it is a leader that is totally unaware of how negatively they are perceived by others or a department that is constantly a source of chaos and confusion for both you and the other departments who need them to get their work done. Either way, in either situation, you are being put in a tough situation. Any leader or department that is reluctant to share skills, knowledge and information with others and refuses to think any problems are coming from them should be a big concern for you. Though sending in a coach may be the right solution, perhaps a better first step should be doing a deeper dive into why a leader or department like this is able to survive in your organization.

    Often, it is not the department's fault but rather the presence and acceptance of silos and silo thinking that are the problem. Silos and silo thinking create barriers to effective communication and collaboration throughout your organization causing a ripple of negativity. If left unchecked, these silos will taint your culture and result in behaviors that cause inconsistency, inefficiency and isolation. Organizational silos wreak havoc in your organization and often it is your top leadership that is fanning the flame.

    Let’s finally take the steps to name, claim, and smash these silos before they cause you more stress, damage your organizational culture and negatively impact business results.
