In this episode, Lotus Yon, Director of Human Resourceas and Learning with Northwest Community Healthcare, shares her experience around creating a workplace culture that brings flexibility to life. This is not about policies and programs; it's about embedding, ingraining, and infusing the lifestyle of flexibility into our very fabric. It's about creating a culture that reinforces and clarifies the importance of flexibility at every turn - the way we act, the way we interact, and the way we work. We explore the difference between work-life-balance and work-life-integration. And we impart some wisdom around really meaning flexibility when we say "flexibility."
In this episode, we chat with Stephanie Waite, Director of Leadership and Organizational Development at Lurie Childrens Hospital about her philosophy of a culture of customization. She explains what that is--essentially appealing to the unique and distinct needs of the individual as opposed to the organization—and how she applies these principles in her workplace. Stephanie is a true “graduate level” culture pracitioner discussing for example how this applies to designing leadership development programs and shifting large scale culture is through individual behaviors.
