#DThink Twitter Chat Recap: How to Positively Impact Your Workplace Culture in 2016

January 12, 2016 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

In our Disney Institute professional development training courses and presentations that take place around the world, we teach individuals and businesses this fundamental lesson: the extent to which you genuinely care for your people is the extent to which they will care for your customers – and each other. 

Consistently demonstrating genuine care is a key component of fostering employee engagement and positive workplace culture. Whether it’s practicing intentional listening, eliminating workplace hassles or fostering meaningful peer-to-peer relationships among the team, developing a sincere, caring relationship with people creates a culture of commitment to common goals rather than compliance to mandates or directives. And, plenty of research has shown that this type of employee engagement, directly impacts business results.

During our most recent #DThink Twitter Chat, we had excellent dialogue with our Twitter community about this topic. Questions and answers were based on the curriculum from Disney’s Approach to Employee Engagement, our professional development training course that explores how organizations and leaders can create a work culture where desired behaviors are consistently demonstrated.

A number of fantastic insights were shared throughout the chat. Read the full chat here, or below we have shared a few highlights from the discussion:
