Transparency, Trust and Authentic Communications are keys to the kingdom. This was my take away with conversations that I’ve had with, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for the Disney/ABC Television Group (DATG) is that Steve Milovich is focused on refining the employee experience, from improving professional development, to growing strong capable leaders, and strengthening collaboration across DATG and The Walt Disney Company. The path to success, according to the DATG HR leader, “will be inspired in part by Disney/ABC’s achievements in connecting with and engaging consumers.“ Steve further states that, “This notion of collaborative approaches within the ecosystem of organizations is main stream in large organizations, which is exciting for those of us who understand that networks exist today. There are collaborative people who are brokering informative actively today that we can help organizations really fly. Sharing and transparency will help to broker and connect employees, partners, customers or prospects and lead to innovation and new product and service development.”
I’m honored to have had the opportunity to meet someone that is such a progressive leader within a world class organization that truly understands the importance of an
open and dynamic organizations – he truly is an example of the #futureofhr.
In fact recently during a conversation with Jay Galbraith, he reminded members at Executive Networks the importance of implementing an organization that builds alignment using his methodology of the star, which emphasizes strategy, structure, process, rewards and people. He has found in his work over the years that good matrix organizational structures have strong networks and emphasize social capital. They not only reward but also recruit the best people.
Overall, the trend line continues to emphasize the importance of authentic people who can help communities, organizations and families realize new heights. We continue to have opportunities abound and I do hope you will join this important effort of “people” whether they are on during offsites at a luxury hotel, canvassaing for an election or within an organization.
