I first met Charlee Hanna through Twitter. We started following each other half a year ago and ever since, we’ve established a very fluent communication and she’s become one of the top promoters of this blog.
A few weeks ago, I invited Charlee to guest post. She had to decline because she was too busy with a new project she was about to launch. That’s when I learned about The Organization Survival Playbook.
Since Charlee is a Networker (that’s how Klout defines her style and I couldn’t find a better adjective), I’m thrilled about the potential this new endeavor has with her at the helm.
For 10 years, Charlee Hanna has owned and operated a whitewater rafting business in Montana. She loved everything about the business and where she lived, but even though it was doing well, it conflicted with other priorities and it was time to move on.
Life is all about change and Charlee and her husband gave up the business and moved back to their home in Utah.
After several false starts, Charlee found that she wanted to help others who were experts in their fields, but too busy to promote themselves. She also found companies that were prospering in difficult times because they followed sound principles, and decided it was important to share this information so others could also succeed. With the help of her sister, her husband and many others, Charlee is proud to present:
The Organization Survival Playbook
An Oasis in the Desert of Mechanistic, Quick Fix, Organizational Thinking…
Understanding how to help an organization not just survive but thrive despite constant market fluctuations requires managers to go beyond today’s fads and the simplistic solutions found on television talk shows and in much of today’s literature.
Organizational Survival Playbook aims to be a repository for insightful, pragmatic and time-proven measures as submitted by well-known experts and little-known practitioners. If what you do has paid off, they are interested in learning from your experience.
Org Survival’s goals are to:
- Be the go-to source for answers to your organizational problems.
- Serve the decision maker.
- Be a source of information for emerging organizations.
- To give, not to sell.
There’s a series of webinars planned as part of The Organizational Survival Playbook, so here’s the launch schedule.
Jack Zenger has agreed to be the kickoff presenter. John H. “Jack” Zenger is the co-founder and CEO of Zenger Folkman, a professional services firm providing consulting, leadership development programs, and implementation software for organizational effectiveness initiatives.
He is considered a world expert in the field of leadership development and is a highly respected and sought after speaker, consultant and executive coach.
He has headed up several companies in the training and development field and was recently honored with the American Society of Training and Development’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Workplace Learning and Performance. He has also just released a new book that he co-authored called, How to be Exceptional, which is now available at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com.
Jack will discuss the seven reasons why strengths-based development of leaders works best. His presentation will include research based on studies of 24,600 leaders. It will also show bottom line real results of companies. If you want to help your leaders show measurable results, this webinar is for you.
USSynthetic, the 2011 Shingo Award winner and diamond drill bit manufacturer, was faced with accelerated growth problems in 2005. The next year, they doubled their output and gross income without increasing overhead and infrastructure. Since then they have had an annual increase of 23%, have an impressive, lean, US based manufacturing plant, and have an amazing employee engagement program with 32,000 employee-sponsored improvements in 2011. If you are interested in how they changed their culture to achieve these successes, this will be a valuable webinar.
Sandra Zuluaga Rodriguez, is the Chief HR Officer of Cinepolis Mexico. This fast-growing, multinational company has challenges integrating HR with different cultures. Join Sandra as she discusses how she is managing this well.
Dave Hanna has a long varied background from working shifts as a line manager; helping to establish some of the most successful, self-directed team efforts at P&G; and integrating the first European globalization effort for P&G. Since then, he has worked with some of the finest leadership and some of the best companies in the world. He has researched the lifecycle of company success—why some companies keep going while others, though they seem strong, fail. If your goal is to succeed and keep on succeeding, then this is the webinar for you.
