Do You Know & Use Appreciative Capacity Building? | Prof. Tom Klaus | Principal and Senior Consultant | Tom Klaus & Associates
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Prof. Tom Klaus. The greatest asset of any organization is its people. One of the greatest challenges faced by any organizational leader is managing people in a way that builds their capacity to achieve high performance and success. Appreciative Capacity Building is a positive approach leaders can use to build on the strengths, abilities, assets, and potential they see in their people. Appreciative Capacity Building is a "strengths based approach" that focuses on what is already being successful and working well, rather than on what is failing or what is "broken." Dialogue on leveraging strengths to address issues takes the place of merely diagnosing problems. Together leaders and their teams make actions for doing more of what is already working well for them, tapping the prior success to unleash further innovation. In this webinar you will learn how Appreciative Capacity Building can work for you.
What you learn:
As a result of participating in this webinar you will be able to:
- Describe how Appreciative Capacity Building is different from other forms of capacity building.
- Describe the three steps to becoming an appreciative capacity builder.
- Describe and utilize a simple SOAR or SOARt assessment.

Organizational Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast | Miles Anthony Smith | Director of Vehicle Donations | Rawhide Boys Ranch
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Miles Anthony Smith.
Why do so many organizations fail to achieve their goals and objectives? Is it the result of a lack of strategy and execution? Or is it a result of the organization's culture....its norms and modus operandi? And while strategy is highly important, culture is just as important if not more so.
Most often senior leaders overlook the importance of developing the right kind of culture, and as a result, in a vacuum of intentionality around hiring and retaining emotionally healthy team members and firing ones who can't get along with the team no matter their individual performance, an organization will create its own unofficial code of behavior and dysfunction often undoing even the best strategic planning.

Alternate Methods of Gathering Information | S. M. Sibghatullah Husaini | Chief Executive Dynamics Research Consultants
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by S. M. Sibghatullah Husaini. Information gathering and processing is the mainstay of all research studies. However, every Research Study is unique in its own way. The nature of issue / problem under study, the approach and methodology appropriate for the enquiry, the type of information needed, the kind of respondents, the depth of analysis and other requirements and constraints are varied for different studies.
Accordingly, the method of information gathering / data collection has to be selected carefully and tailored to the peculiarities of the study in hand as every information gathering / data collection method is not suitable for every type of Research Study.
In most of the social and marketing research studies, information is collected from the Respondents / the citizens / the Customers. Methods of collecting information from the respondents can be broadly classified into Personal Interviews, Telephone Interviews, Mail Surveys and Electronic Surveys. These four main types can further be divided into nine sub-types. Each of these nine methods has its own peculiarities, strengths and weaknesses. If some are more suitable for one type of study, these may be sub-optimal for other types.
In this session, inter-alia, we will juxtapose the nine methods of respondent based information collection methods with the above criteria with and discuss which method is more suitable for which type of Research study.

Do you have a competitive advantage and how sustainable is it? | Dr. Karel Cool Professor of Strategic Management INSEAD
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Karel Cool about Competitive Advantage ; He highlights the following: It is inescapable - while firms can hope to get a lucky break and be successful, long term success is based on competing with skills and resources that rivals have a hard time acquiring. These competitive advantages are the foundations of long term growth and value creation of companies, small or large. And while government regulation can shield firms from the vagaries of competition, political winds can change, requiring an understanding of a firm's sustainability once it is more exposed. The mere identification of the skills and resources that give a firm an edge over competitors is not a trivial matter. Very often, we use cues such as market share, sales growth, customer feedback, key performance indicators, etc. Together, these yardsticks may give a good view of where a firm is better or worse that its competitors, but there are some important pitfalls to avoid. In the discussion, I will expand on the use of profits as an indicator of competitive advantage and discuss why it sometimes leads us down the wrong path.
