Karin Hurt and David Dye, authors of Courageous Cultures

Have you ever had a potentially good idea that you kept to yourself?

It’s a common experience, and in the world of work, it can be a problem. Organizations of all sizes and industries employ thoughtful, talented people who have ideas that could improve the customer experience, increase organizational efficiency and more. But for various reasons — from assuming they wouldn’t be taken seriously to simply not being asked in the first place — these employees do not make their voices heard.

What would it take to reverse this phenomenon? Karin Hurt and David Dye, authors of Courageous Cultures, have some ideas of their own — and fortunately, they’re more than willing to share. In this episode of HR Break Room®, Hurt and Dye join host Caleb Masters to discuss:

  • what might be holding back everyday innovation among your teams
  • communication strategies to eliminate FOSU (fear of speaking up) and encourage deeper dialogue
  • easy-to-use tools and techniques to facilitate organizational and customer-focused problem-solving
  • how HR technology can be leveraged to encourage better employee input

Learn more about how to foster a culture of innovation and engagement by reading our white paper, What Employees Want: Overlooked Insights in Employee Engagement.
