The Unspoken Rules
The Unspoken Rules That Lead to Top Career Success
People don't leave companies; they leave managers. Unfortunately, the vast majority of managers get zero training, leading to management through trial and error. In this session, Gorick shares the most common frustrations managers have towards their teams - and how tiny tweaks in one's management approach can help leaders help others help themselves.
What separates star performers from the rest? An ownership mindset. In this session, Gorick demystifies what ownership looks like and sounds like, from "level 1" (how school conditions us to behave) to "level 7" (what star performers do subconsciously) in some of the most common scenarios at work, from asking for help to managing projects.
If you want it, you have to strive for it. If what you want doesn't exist, you have to create it. If you aren't sure you can have it, you have to ask for it. In this session, Gorick shares strategies for how to take your career development into your own hands.
What drives low employee engagement and turnover? Bias, discrimination, and hidden expectations, all of which create an unlevel playing ffield between "insiders" who get ahead and "outsiders" who don't feel a sense of belonging. In this session, Gorick deconstructs common scenarios at work, from meetings to small talk, and speaks to how speaking the "unspoken rules" can create a more inclusive environment where everyone can thrive.
All of us want to do purposeful work. Few of us know where to begin. In this session, Gorick shares practical strategies for making an impact, inspired by stories of professionals who've made it work.
