#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT), with the #TChat Twitter chat right after from 7-8 pm ET.   Last week we talked about workplace flexibility as a business strategy, and this week we're going to talk about how "go-givers" far and wide make businesses grow in today's economy, and then some. These are the "intrapraneurs" if you will -- those who look inside and then elevate others -- which makes for a much better business strategy than you'd think.   You may have heard the following mantra in various iterations, including literally from this week's guest:   “All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”   Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guest: Bob Burg, a sought-after speaker and supporter of the free enterprise system and an empathic world of work, as well as the bestselling author of Endless Referrals and The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann).  This will be another important business show for us all, so be a go-giver and join us.

#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT). Remember, the #TChat Twitter chat will follow from 7-8 pm ET.   Last week we talked about workplace innovation and how we can fuse disruption and adoption. This week we're going to talk about the growing number of professionals who telecommute and work from home — and who get the work done - another form of evolving workplace innovation.   Progressive companies today emphasize work-life fit (not balance, thank you) that includes some form of workplace flexibility as a “business strategy,” not an employee benefit. Workplace flexibility has been shown to reduce absenteeism, turnover, real estate costs, utilities and other expenses, while in the same breath improving attracting and retaining talent, employee engagement, productivity and much more.   Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: Lisa Horn, Co-Leader of SHRM’s Workplace Flexibility Initiative and a SHRM Senior Government Relations Advisor, and Susan Lovegren, SVP of HR at Plantronics, a global leader in audio communications for businesses and consumers that recently launched their Smarter Working initiative.    This will be another important show for us all, so talk about changing the corporate mindset of clocking time in a cubicle.

#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT). Remember, the #TChat Twitter chat will follow from 7-8 pm ET.   Last week we talked about the ingenious super heroes within all of us -- complete with Star Wars, Brady Bunch and MacGyver references.   This week we're going to try and bridge the elusive gap between ingenuity, intrinsic motivation, employee engagement, workplace software adoption and the disruptive technologies of today that supposedly enable all of the above.   According to this week's guest, disruptive workplace technologies are not new, but the impact they can have in business (and do) is something that enterprises can no longer ignore. This includes social collaboration, social learning, video technologies, gamification, 3D printing and so much more -- but the keys are the adoption and business outcomes.   Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guest: Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research Inc., a leading technology research firm.    This will be another important show for us all, so let's fuse world of work disruption and adoption. In a good way.

#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, August 7, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT). Remember, the #TChat Twitter chat will follow from 7-8 pm ET.  Luke: I can’t believe it.  Yoda: That is why you fail.   Many of us remember this "Star Wars" scene. Fact is, in our world, the positive power of the "workforce culture" is within us all, yet according to dismal engagement surveys, no one believes it. That is why we fail.   Last week we talked about why collaboration today leads to successful tomorrows, and this week we're going to discuss identifying the capabilities inside each person, and the organization as a whole, that you may not even know exists, yet can be accessed easily to transform culture and attract and retain talent.    The sixth sense ability is something organizations long for, to look inside themselves, to listen to themselves and each other, to encourage their workforce to reflect and create -- and grow strong individually and together.   Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guest: Marcia Conner, Principal of the SensifyGroup, collaborative learning thought leader and author.    Her new book, Enginuity, will be out early next year and touches on the topic above. In it Marcia demonstrates the 5 keys to revving up your ingenuity engine to find that hero inside of you, ready to look in, get out, and save the day.   This will be another important show for us all -- may the "workforce" be with you.
