Versatility: The Engine of Success

What would a 56% boost in productivity mean to your organisation? What if your company could learn a skill that will eliminate conflict, miscommunication, and slow decisions? And what if I told you that the mechanics team inside a global air fleet company did just that and saw a 56% boost in productivity? Would I get your attention? Thought so. That skill is called Versatility, and it is perhaps the most powerful interpersonal skill you can have. Numerous research studies show that diverse experiences are critical to innovation and performance improvement, but diversity naturally places a strain on communication. When people feel there is tension and difficulties in communication, it is difficult to carry out innovative decisions and actions with high energy. The good news is we can take responsibility for managing our communication, behaviour, and reducing interpersonal tension by keeping the task focused on solving problems and achieving productivity, efficiency, and employee engagement improvements

Communication differences and how to tackle them with versatility

The Alpha Group Foresight Series

We’re all looking down the barrel of the most unprecedented business challenge we’ve ever faced.

Simply working hard may help our companies survive but won’t help us thrive. We have to work hard and smart. We need to integrate best practice for today and for tomorrow.

The world’s largest businesses all started during various kinds of economic downturn. Yours can thrive during this one if you’re agile, innovative and you collaborate.

The Alpha Group Foresight Lectures will look at the fundamental factors making your business robust, agile and successful no matter what’s thrown at you.

Now is the time to be brave and embrace this disturbance and create your own business disruption.

If we look at our feet, we shine our shoes. If we look at the sky, we go to the stars.
