TRAINING MASKED WITH A SEXY NAME IS STILL JUST TRAINING

TRAINING MASKED WITH A SEXY NAME IS STILL JUST TRAINING

When was the last time you walked into a training room and felt really inspired and engaged by the topic? And when was the last time you walked away with a wealth of knowledge that you knew exactly how to apply in your day-to-day job?  

If recently or even ever, count yourself as one of the rare few. Chances are, you are more likely to attend an ineffective mandatory training, walk away not understanding how to connect the dots, and forget what you absorbed almost instantly.

The Problem With Just Training

Although companies have the best intentions to up-level their workforce through training, research shows that they are missing the mark.

American corporations spend an estimated $160B annually on Learning and Development initiatives, and most of it’s wasted [1]. McKinsey shares that adults typically only retain 10% of what they learn in a classroom environment [2]. But if only 10% is retained, then how much is acted on? Harvard Business School Professor Michael Beer calls this the “the great training robbery”. 

It is no secret that Success Skills development today is still dominated by outdated training practices. Unfortunately, these ineffective practices overlook context, underestimate mindsets, and assume that one size fits all.

While organizations care about developing their workforce, most have not moved beyond the classroom or online training approach. Although training can often be masked with more relevant names such as ‘Manager Success’ or ‘Leadership Next Level’, the reality is, no matter how sexy you might label your training courses, at the end of the day, they are still likely to achieve the same outcomes.

Why? Because training is an event & events do not create self-awareness and change behaviors.

Moving To Mindsets

Staying relevant as an organization means being intentional. If you want to step up your impact as an organization, you have to step up your Learning and Development game.

To truly move the needle, at Experiential Insight we believe in building mindsets, not just skills sets.

It is our core philosophy that it is time to ditch traditional training methods, and turn to Learning & Development options that are intentionally designed for transformation. Our Group Coaching Tracks provide opportunities for augmented learning through others and are purely driven by your organization's strategic goals. Group Coaching effectively and efficiently creates self-awareness, shifts mindsets, changes behaviors and ultimately increases results.

If you want different results, then you have to start taking different actions.

If you really want to up-level your employees, stop running traditional training classrooms, and start providing personalized small group Executive Coaching at scale. By doing this, you can shape the mindsets and actions of your employees to increase productivity, impact, and engagement.

Are you ready to take action? Contact us to discuss how.

EVERYONE’S SEARCHING FOR LIFELONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

EVERYONE’S SEARCHING FOR LIFELONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

I spend my days in career coaching conversations with alumni of all levels and across different-sized companies and industries in my role as the Director of the Smeal College of Business Alumni Center at Penn State University.

If one thing is clear, it is that our alumni are constantly searching for lifelong learning opportunities in an effort to continue their growth and development post-graduation. I know this is not a unique case to our alumni, but that universally individuals are craving access to knowledge that enhances their ability to reach successful heights. 

“And the truth of the matter is that most alumni are not getting access to the type of development opportunities they are looking for.”

Being at the heart of these conversations I know what opportunities individuals are getting access to through their companies versus what they are searching for. And the truth of the matter is that most alumni are not getting access to the type of development opportunities they are looking for.

Smeal Alumni Career Services offers a robust one-on-one career coaching service which assists alumni clients with strategizing a job search process or career transition. As coaches, we help our alumni refine their application materials, research respective industries, and prepare for various forms of interviewing.

Areas that focus more on leadership, managing teams, and creating impact in the workplace are topics we touch on, but we don’t actively coach on. We discovered this gap in our coaching program and found Experiential Insight’s approach to executive coaching for non-executives to be an incredible asset to the work we already do.

This is why we have stepped up as an alumni center – to intentionally address that gap so that we can continue to support our alumni in meaningful ways that make a difference.

Through our partnership with Experiential Insight, we are providing intimate group coaching to our alumni so they can start to develop the Success Skills they need to unlock their full potential. This includes important Success Skills such as visionary intelligence, social intelligence, curiosity, growth mindset, and so on.

We’re big believers of measuring impact, and we know that on average our alumni are experiencing a 2.7 point shift on a scale of 1.0 to 10 from before the group Coaching Track to after. That’s a remarkable difference.

The shift is powerful, and I’m proud to be able to serve our alumni through unique opportunities that accelerate their achievement.

LEADING GROWTH WITH EMOTIONAL & SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE

LEADING GROWTH WITH EMOTIONAL & SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE

“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels.” -Daniel Goleman

In the 90’s Daniel Goleman became a hit through his book, ”Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ.” In the book, he explains that we have rational and emotional minds, why Emotional Intelligence is critical to success in our work and relationships, and how EQ can be taught and cultivated.

I strikingly remember the buzz, as the topic was fervently discussed during a class at my university.

What Goleman was saying made sense, but what didn’t make sense was how long it had taken us to write about a topic that seemed like it should have been second nature to us. But was it?

The Need For Emotional & Social Intelligence

Fast forward many years, and it turns out that we’re still not experts yet on the topic of Emotional Intelligence. We are still far from aligning our rational and emotional minds to most effectively reach our highest potential.

And to make things even more complicated, we’re also not well-versed on what it means to be Socially Intelligent (anymore) – an art we’ve sadly lost in the day and age of screens.

As a human capital and human resource practitioner of 15 years, I continue to grapple with the question of why companies still haven’t shifted their focus from building skillsets to building mindsets. Almost anyone can be taught a skillset, but building a mindset (as challenging as it might be) is a whole new parameter to success.

Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ) builds and shifts mindsets to make radical transformations. Leading with ESQ will reap incredible value for organizations that are leading through times of increased complexity and change – like today. Studies and experience continue to show that building ESQ in your employees will be a game changer on every level.

What is ESQ?

At Experiential Insight, we’ve developed a thought leadership framework called HyperQ, and ESQ is a key Intelligence Type in it.

The seven Success Skills under ESQ include:

ESQ Success Skills.png

Want To Increase Your ESQ?

With increased ESQ, the opportunities for value creation in your organization are endless.

Just think about what it would mean to have employees who place value on and engage in dialogue, who are resilient, who are able to leverage both their rational and emotional minds, who are able to influence outcomes, and who bring global perspective to every solution.

If you’re looking for next-level impact, then it’s time to stop training for skillsets and start coaching instead for mindsets-- your business depends on it.

As we’ve witnessed first-hand through our group Executive Coaching tracks, Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ) transforms organizations for the better.

Let us help you transform your business by transforming the mindsets of your employees with ESQ.

LEADING GROWTH WITH VISIONARY INTELLIGENCE

LEADING GROWTH WITH VISIONARY INTELLIGENCE

In our modern and fast-paced world, organizations face constant change all the time.

Leading a company through ever-increasing complexity and changing economic models is no small endeavor. Having the right tools that enable you to push your human capital assets into new heights means introducing capabilities that are uniquely positioned.

So what makes a team uniquely capable beyond what they already know and do?

At Experiential Insight, we call this unique capability Visionary Intelligence, which is an Intelligence Type in our thought leadership framework called HyperQ.

In our experience working with the hottest startups, to the mid-sized growth machines, and the big enterprises too, it is increasingly clear that companies that lead with Visionary Intelligence (VQ) have an advantage over their competition.

What is VQ?

Visionary Intelligence or VQ consists of the following seven Success Skills:

VQ Success Skills.png

What’s the Opportunity?

Building a team that embodies each of these Success Skills is where your greatest opportunity lies.

Being a visionary and having VQ are two different things. VQ enables your organization to look beyond, think bigger, never be satisfied, create experiences, and so much more.

This is a powerful place for both the individual and the company to strive for because it will create heightened employee engagement, and rapid next-level organizational results.

Are you ready to build the team that’ll help your organization adapt and grow?

Then seize the opportunity to let us build VQ in your organization today.

THE IMPACT I’M CREATING THROUGH EXPERIENTIAL INSIGHT AS AN EXECUTIVE COACH

THE IMPACT I’M CREATING THROUGH EXPERIENTIAL INSIGHT AS AN EXECUTIVE COACH

20+ years ago when I started my career as a Change Management Consultant, little did I know that I would eventually find my full passion through a life-changing body of work called Executive Coaching.

I’ve spent my career working with some of the most intelligent leaders and the best companies in the world, from Deloitte Consulting to Cisco, Silicon Valley Bank, Royal Dutch Shell and so many others. It’s always been an honor to develop bright minds to that next level of management and leadership.

And now as an Executive Coach with Experiential Insight, I am able to have an even broader impact, by bringing executive-level skills to every level of an organization, through intimate group coaching that is designed for transformation. I’ve had the joy of coaching a diverse range of people – from university students to corporate managers and directors.

What I find most rewarding with Experiential Insight is the culture of continuous improvement. At the conclusion of each hour of group coaching, not only do I know my rating as an Executive Coach, most importantly I know how much I have shifted the needle with my Coachees. In each coaching session we ask them how equipped they are to add value as a result of the session. It’s amazing to see the transformation in their confidence. Having access to real-time results like this also allows me to reflect on my own coaching style – what I should do more of and what I can do better. It gives me the opportunity to bring my A+ game to every coaching session.

It is also phenomenal to work for a company that is built on hiring the best coaches around so that we can learn from each other. We have a 39% Executive Coach acceptance rate, which means we only hire the most elite talent. When you’re creating massive impact around the world and changing the face of organizations and societies, the bar needs to be set high.

Our thought leadership framework HyperQ allows us to address impact both with our clients and within our own walls – this is the best part about working for a global leader committed to unlocking human potential.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to make a difference, and look forward to creating more impact in the years to come.

THE FUTURE OF HR IS SCALABLE GROUP COACHING

THE FUTURE OF HR IS SCALABLE GROUP COACHING

As a human capital and human resource practitioner with 15 years of experience at Deloitte Consulting, Salesforce, Cisco, and others, I’ve spent my whole career entangled in the wheelhouse of anything and everything to do with the people dimension of running a business.

From behind the curtain, time and time again I’ve seen the challenges organizations face with increasing people value to better align with business value. And I believe that there is a better way forward.

The HR Challenge

One of the biggest challenges from an HR perspective has always been how to effectively create business value in a way that addresses the pain points. And from a business perspective, business leaders want to see that HR understands their priorities and comes to the table with the ammunition required to accelerate growth through their people.

The challenge for HR practitioners to date has been that the tools used to up-level talent for maximum business value hasn’t really added value. This is no fault of HR -- it’s simply because until now training has been the only available tool to up-level talent. Yet McKinsey data tells us that adults unfortunately only retain 10% of what they learn in a classroom, which means that they act on even less.

Building Mindsets Together

If we’re going to push value to the next required level, we need something vastly different than training that focuses only on traditional skillsets. We need to build mindsets, but not in a way that focuses on the individuals’ goals alone. Instead, we need to do it in a way that allows individuals to transform together with a business-centric focus.

One to one coaching models are popping up all over like mushrooms. However, when assessing them for your needs, the first question you should ask is:

Are they focused on life coaching, career coaching, or executive coaching?

These are all vastly different models of intent and focus, and if you’re a business your needs are highly likely geared towards executive coaching at every level, rather than life or career coaching.

The second question you need to ask is:

Are you focused on developing individuals for their own agendas and goals, or are you focused on building individuals that grow and transform together based on the organization’s goals?

It’s clear that the latter is more appealing for a variety of reasons including building a culture of learning together, psychological safety, group accountability, and fostering a team mentality.

So while one to one coaching has worked to date, with the predominant focus on coaching senior executives, it is not nearly as scalable, nor does it translate into rapid transformation for the entire organization.

That’s where group coaching comes in to play.

Scalable Group Coaching

Due to both its collaborative and scalable nature, group coaching is the future of HR.

It is an extremely powerful approach which can do the following things for you:

  • Build organizational cultures

  • Instill leadership visions

  • Create succession planning bench strength

  • Develop manager effectiveness

  • Solve for generational and global differences

  • Develop change agents at every level

  • Build customer mindsets

  • Reduce diversity challenges

  • Integrate acquired employees

That’s why at Experiential Insight we believe in investing in your people and your business by investing in our Group Coaching Tracks.

Ready for the Future of HR? Group Coaching is your answer.

THE GAP FROM WHERE YOU ARE TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

THE GAP FROM WHERE YOU ARE TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

As the great John F. Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

At Experiential Insight, we totally agree. That’s why we believe that coaching and continuous learning are pathways to developing better leaders.

Don’t see how important this is yet?

Here are some shocking stats in terms of where your organization is right now:

  • 90% of your employees are not adding accelerated value

  • 51% of employees are actively looking for or are open to a new job

  • 90% of classroom training is not retained

  • 33% of everyday activities are wasted

  • 67% of change initiatives fail

  • 47% of jobs will be automated by 2034

Although the numbers may seem grim, there is hope to bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be.

That’s why we’re so passionate about our group Executive Coaching Tracks, which facilitate continuous learning so that your employees at every level can develop as leaders who make an impact.

Let’s work together to get your organization to where you want it to be.

When you contribute to the growth of your employees, you’ll be able to:

  • Increase productivity, impact, and engagement

  • Create employee experiences that engage employees to do the best work of their lives

  • Create greater self-awareness, achievement, and bottom-line impact

  • Increase organizational alignment and strategic impact

  • Develop employees to become change agents

  • Successfully navigate increasingly complex environments

It’s a big leap, isn’t it?

The gap from where you are to where you want to be can be big and complex. You’ll need a long-term strategic partner who can partner with you to radically transform your organization within the next 12 months. And we’d love to help you get there.

Think bigger. Act bigger. Become HyperQ.

WHAT IS HYPERQ AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

WHAT IS HYPERQ AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

In the modern work environment, just IQ is no longer enough. These days, soft skills have become critical for success. Or as we call them – Success Skills.

That’s why we developed HyperQ.

HyperQ is every organizations solution for unlocking the hidden potential of your workforce to be able to navigate to the next level of growth and transformation.  

Built over 15 years of deep expertise, HyperQ is our thought leadership framework at Experiential Insight. It was created from the insights we gained while working closely with leaders of all ages, from the 18-year-old college student to the 65-year-old veteran CEO.

In 125 in-person and survey interviews with industry leaders on HyperQ, it became clear that without intentionally developing their employees, organizations stand very little chance of survival.

Why? Because:

  • Organizations have increased in complexity by 10% in just the last two years

  • 2/3 of change management initiatives fail because employees are not equipped to go through the change

  • Even training programs with new and sexy titles still mean that adults only retain 10% of what they learn in a classroom 

In a world of rapid change and transformation, there needs to be a new approach for the new ways of working and learning.

And that’s why we’re here -- to support you at the cusp of this change. Through our high impact group Coaching Tracks, we develop your employees so that their full human potential can be realized through HyperQ.

The powerful impact we make through HyperQ is best described through the words of one of our customers, “The part I loved the most is the comparison between how much/how hard we work versus how much impact we are making in the organization.”

Curious about what HyperQ entails?

HyperQ is Visionary Intelligence (VQ) multiplied by Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ). These two factors are made up of crucial Success Skills necessary for the leaders of the future.

It’s time to do things differently if you’re looking for different results. We are excited to offer HyperQ, your new solution forward.

In future articles on HyperQ, we will explore these important Success Skills more closely, so be sure to follow us to learn more.

WHY I STARTED EXPERIENTIAL INSIGHT

WHY I STARTED EXPERIENTIAL INSIGHT

Two years young, and having just celebrated Experiential Insight’s birthday, it’s clear to me now that its inception was shaped by crucial chapters in my life. Suddenly all the experiences and passions in my life came together into what I would call my life’s calling. As Steve Jobs said, “You can only connect the dots looking backwards.”

I live in the glamor of the most desirable capital in the world for all thing’s unicorn, tech, and exit-related -- San Francisco. Sometimes people ask me if there’s pressure to start a business in this environment, and I certainly can’t speak for anyone else, but from my standpoint, absolutely not. I mean there is intrigue, there’s fantasy, and then there’s actually doing it. The leap from desire to action is a big one that can only be sustained with something so much more than just pressure. My drive to build Experiential Insight didn’t come from any pressure -- it came from my Why.

I grew up in a family where education was the number one thing on my parent’s mind. My mum and dad believed that if we studied hard and worked hard, we would always be able to reach our goals. From a young age, my sister and I were exposed to all sorts of activities beyond just school. Tap dancing, ballet, art, piano, gymnastics, singing, swimming, track and field...and that’s just a small sample of a much longer list.

As an adult looking back at these experience’s I quickly realized that humans have relentless amounts of potential, and only some of us are lucky enough to tap into our full potential simply because the people around us gave us the opportunity. I had a burning desire to give what I got as a gift from my parents to the world – the opportunity for an individual to reach their full potential no matter their background, social status, religion, sexual orientation, or other.

As a teenager, I remember that I spent a few good years of my life struggling with fitting in. I was born in Zambia to expatriate parents, raised in Sri Lanka during middle school, moved to New Zealand for high school and university, and now live in the US. Living on four different continents and across cultures, I didn’t always feel I was at my full potential. My main struggle was trying to place myself in a box, because everyone else wanted me to fit in a box, when all the time, my life and personality fit into anything but. It wasn’t until I embarked on a deliberate path of self-development as a teenager that I was eventually able to break free of my own restraints and push into a zone where I could be my best. I wanted this for others as well – the ability to push beyond.

And that’s how Experiential Insight was created. To empower humans to reach their full potential.

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend the last 15 years working in organizations such as Deloitte Consulting, Apple, Salesforce, Cisco, Levi, Chevron, and several others across industries and sizes, with the entirety of my work focused on two distinct yet connected threads: 1. People and Impact, and 2. Growth and Transformation.

I also spent time working with universities in several different capacities including guest lecturing, sitting on boards, founding and running mentoring programs, judging case competitions, including being given the opportunity to deliver a graduation commencement speech -- what an absolute honor that was!

My deep insight into these parallel lives of intimately observing individuals from the 18-year-old knowledge hungry student all the way to the 60-something year old veteran CEO (okay maybe the 27-year-old CEO in some cases) -- this trajectory connected a few critical dots for me.

  1. At a micro level, individuals are just not developed at universities and in life to reach their full potential… ever!

  2. At a macro level, corporations are just not prepared to unlock the potential of their workforce for the next level of organization growth, in terms of building humans who have strength in uniquely human skills

The more I thought about it, the more I couldn’t believe that the gap was so astronomical in terms of where we are now, and where we need to get to. McKinsey research tells us that adults only retain just 10% of what they learn in a classroom setting. Then imagine, how much of that we are able to execute on? Also, uniquely human strengths that require mindset and behavioral shifts simply cannot be taught in classrooms. We’re talking about Success Skills such as developing a growth mindset, embracing failure, global perspective, massive action, 100% accountability, and many others that fall into a thought leadership framework that we call HyperQ.

Experiential Insight closes this gap through a uniquely pre-designed for transformation model that is like nothing out there in the market. Our core offering called a Coaching Track is built for digital, personalized, scalable, and affordable experiences that occur in intimate group settings. The accelerated power of transformation that happens when we are able to experience safe and vulnerable spaces with others is where the real magic happens.

As corporations work with us and employees join our Coaching Tracks from Uber, PwC, Amazon, Dell, Facebook, and several others, I am constantly reminded of the difference we are making in the world in enabling these individuals to reach their full potential through HyperQ.

At Experiential Insight, everything we do is about making a difference and creating impact as a company first – impact in our ability to develop individuals to reach their full potential – and then the ripple effect that has into corporations and societies.

Looking ahead into the future, I am excited to shape the lives of individuals, and lead the way into the Future of Work. But most of all, I am humbled at the chance to give to others what my parents gave to me – the opportunity for humans to reach their true full potential.

WHAT INDUSTRY LEADERS ARE SAYING ABOUT HYPERQ

WHAT INDUSTRY LEADERS ARE SAYING ABOUT HYPERQ

We recently interviewed 125 leaders across various industries on developing Hyper Intelligence (Hyper Q) in individuals. HyperQ is Visionary Intelligence (VQ) multiplied by Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ).

Here’s what we heard:

  1. IQ has a role to play in HyperQ: It is not an ‘either / or’ game of HyperQ or IQ. For the future of everything you need both HyperQ and IQ.

  2. Magnitude equals multiplication: If we’re looking for greater magnitude, then we can only endorse the 2x4 development formula for leadership and not the 2+4 development formula. Multiplication makes a significant difference, and HyperQ is a multiplication of VQ and ESQ for increased impact.

  3. Vision cannot exist without strategy: It is one thing to set a vision, yet another thing to build a strategy to execute on it. Without a strategy even the greatest of visions remain just that - a vision.

  4. Mindset: Engaging in a continuous loop of lifelong learning, feedback, and reflection in different social contexts is imperative to the next stage of evolution as a leader. Intelligence is an ever-evolving target with a direct correlation to our willingness and effort in wanting to learn and grow.

This is HyperQ. Welcome to the Future of Leadership.

THE FUTURE OF LEADERSHIP IS HYPERQ

THE FUTURE OF LEADERSHIP IS HYPERQ

The influence and impact of a leader is fast accelerating into a new stratosphere of success. No longer will an individual rise to the top simply because he or she is a brilliant technician with a few good Success Skills at bay. Instead success will be recognized at the top because he or she demonstrates Hyper Intelligent Leadership. This is the Future of Leadership that will shape our future of work.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM?

WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM?

In order to truly answer the question of what’s wrong with our education system, we need to start asking the question of what determines success in one persons personal life and professional career over another’s? Are there certain types of behaviors and mental models that equate to success? How and where does one develop these mental models and behaviors?

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

The world around us keeps evolving at the speed of light, and it’s becoming harder to predict what the future of life and work will mean for each of us in five years time… or even in just two short years.

Artificial intelligence (AI) still seems like it’s decades away from coming into real contact with our every day lives. The term alone sounds complex, unfriendly, and cold. But the truth is, AI is already here, and has been for a few years now.

LIVING IN THE INTERSECTION OF DREAMS & REALITY

LIVING IN THE INTERSECTION OF DREAMS & REALITY

As children our imaginations are so vast. We see ourselves becoming astronauts, pilots, and firefighters, and we have all sorts of wild dreams about our futures. We are un-inhibited and contained by nothing and no one. Our imaginations are not forced. They’re free, liberating, and dreamy… the feelings every adult wishes they could hold on to throughout his/her life.

YOU CAN'T HACK PERSONAL GROWTH

YOU CAN'T HACK PERSONAL GROWTH

Last week I went to a University of Auckland Alumni event, and had the pleasure of meeting the CEO and Founder of Renaissance Leadership, Ben Andersen. We got talking about executive coaching and personal growth and Ben said something that resonated so strongly with me: “you can’t hack personal growth”.
