What We Do
The landscape of the workplace changes from generation to generation. Today, employees are no longer content to go to work in complete anonymity. Rather, they want to feel significant, stimulated and challenged. Effective leaders build a sense of community within the workplace. They not only increase employee retention figures, but they also improve productivity because employees are more willing to follow effective leaders than non-effective individuals.
Risby Consulting helps to capitalize on the effectiveness of individuals and organizations by helping them improve their ability to lead, work together, select and develop their people. Improving leadership performance will then increase employee productivity. Once this goal is met, we can introduce team building and individual skill development to enable the team and individual contributors to meet those needs.
Team building is a process that enables members of a team to work better together. As pressures for higher performance increase the stresses on the individuals within a team correspondingly increase and conflicts among team members are inevitable. Risby Consulting focuses on the dysfunctions of a team in efforts to enrich team building skills. Cultivating team building skills helps team members navigate these predictable conflicts more effectively while developing a more efficient and highly effective team. Working with permanent and project teams Risby Consulting can go through the forming, storming, norming and performing stages with emphasis on inclusion.
Effective communication is essential in planning and controlling an organization’s resources to accomplish the company’s objectives. Risby Consulting facilitates successful corporate, government, organization, and small-business communication by creating, developing, and delivering innovative, high-quality communication services, consulting, and training programs in the private and public sectors for owners, executives, managers, employees, and individual clients.
Workplace diversity refers to the variety of differences between people in an organization. That sounds simple, but diversity encompasses race, gender, ethnic group, age, personality, cognitive style, tenure, organizational function, education, background and more.
Diversity not only involves how people perceive themselves, but how they perceive others. Those perceptions affect their interactions. For a wide assortment of employees to function effectively as an organization, diversity should be addressed.
Risby Consulting helps organizations develop and deliver inclusion strategies that engage employees and improve performance. Creating an environment where employees feel that their diversity is valued will result in increased motivation and commitment.
At work, generational differences can affect everything, including recruiting, building teams, dealing with change, motivating, managing, and maintaining and increasing productivity. Think of how generational differences, relative to how people communicate, might affect misunderstandings, high employee turnover, difficulty in attracting employees and gaining employee commitment. Each generation has distinct attitudes, behaviors, expectations, habits and motivational buttons.
Research indicates that people communicate based on their generational backgrounds. Each generation has distinct attitudes, behaviors, expectations, habits and motivational buttons. Learning how to communicate with the different generations can eliminate many major confrontations and misunderstandings in the workplace and the world of business. Risby Consulting helps to bridge the gap between generations through training and workshops.
