Micromanagers, workaholics, tyrants, conflict avoiders…

  • Only 25% of employees in Asia feel that their leaders are fully prepared for future challenges.
  • Just 43% of leaders understood how their work contributed to that of their peers or understood the organization’s performance as a whole.
  • Despite increase leadership investments, only 33% heads of HR were confident that these investments led to measurable results.

Speaker Background

Greg Basham, BA, MBA – Chief Executive Officer, eeVoices limited

HR and business leaders know that their greatest success comes when they are working strategically and where their organization has highly engaged talent delivering on the promise of their brand. Three paradox for business today is that things are changing so rapidly and delivering sustained sales and revenue growth by focusing on the customer only goes so far. Surveys show that leaders know what needs to be done but they are challenged to find time and resources.
Greg Basham is a founder and CEO of eeVoices Limited – a provider of preemployment screening and reference check services, exit interviews and employee engagement services. His prior career included an executive roles as Vice President & Officer with one of Canada’s largest P&C insurers as well as leading a restructuring of the police and community services for the Vancouver Police and a city’s first Municipal Social Planner.

Danny Chan, Chief Praise Maker | Praisage

It was while studying in Australia and supporting himself through part time work in customer service positions that Danny came to experience and realise the physical and psychological challenges of working on the front-line of business, as well as the power of both complaints and appreciation.

After returning to Hong Kong in 2001, Danny was engaged in a variety of roles across diverse industries ranging from tourism to branding, and from people development to public relations. But at the heart of his work lays a deep and sincere commitment to serve and support people.

It was at the age of 32 that Danny made a profound and remarkable decision that would radically alter the direction of his life. In response to what he experienced as an emerging corporate culture dominated by complaint driven reactions, he committed himself to developing a platform through which he could champion and promote a somewhat contradictory culture of praise and appreciation, and lead a transformation in organisational behaviour.

Graval Demo Workshop – Influencing for Win-Win

Senior HR forum is supporting Graval’s demo workshop o “Influencing for Win-Win”.

Nowadays most of the organizations are getting more and more flatten and lean in structure.  This drives more direct communication and cooperation between layers and functions.  People are no longer interacting within their function and location, but having more and more cross-departmental or cross-location/region projects and task forces.  So, managers or technical experts are now leading and influencing with team members whom they may not have direct authority over or control them.

To be successful managers, project leaders and technical leaders, they must have strong interaction and highly effective influencing skills.  They have to know how to get things done with and through people and convince them to accept the extra responsibilities and be fully committed to the team actions and win-win results.

Date & Time: December 4, 2010 – 9:00am – 1:00pm

Other supporting organizations for this event include eeVoices Limited and FlexSystem.
