  2. 2. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 2 THEME “AUTHENTICITY MATTERS” An authentic relationship is based on truth, respect, and mutual trust. In the workplace, these qualities are essential for effective teamwork and healthy, professional relationships. Of course, building authentic workplace relationships takes time and continual practice. If you're seeking to improve not only your personal relationships with others but also your professional environment, incorporating simple, common sense practices not only achieves your goals but also improves the lives of those around you. The key to success? Treat others as you wish to be treated yourself. Authenticity. What is it, who is doing it well and how do we make it work for us in the workplace? Attempts at building workplace relationships that lack authenticity can often feel contrived. When approached by people lacking in authenticity, we may likely feel used and simply a vehicle for the other person to achieve their business objectives. This is networking and selling at its worst. We must own our behavior. Every action we take with regards to relationships at the workplace is intentional. On some level, we likely know what we are doing, but may not always consider the impact of our actions or the repercussions on our co-workers. Do we come across as givers or takers? Authentic or fake? As we continue to adapt to today’s ever-changing and VUCA-driven business environment, it is critical that we challenge the fear that somehow being authentic is a bad thing as some people would have thought. It may be uncomfortable and create some opposition in the short term from individuals not used to it. However, practicing candor, transparency, engaging in honest and open dialogue, and always placing our values, principles, and ethics before advancing our career or pursuing short-term financial gain will bring us more meaningful success in every aspect of our lives, not just at the workplace. To develop authentic relationships at the workplace, we need to invest time in getting to know our colleagues. Learn about their personal interests, their families and share similar information with them. Keeping our work and personal lives separate is inherently unhealthy, yet many of us have been trained from an early age to leave the personal stuff out of workplace conversations. For those of us with internal client facing roles, don’t we desire to build trust and develop long-term client relationships? The solution is to be ourselves and not an artificial version of ourselves. Get them to view us as our real self. The payoff? An improved organizational climate with sustained long-term relationships and increased employee engagement. How will we know how much we should share in the workplace? Are there any boundaries? Authenticity, when guided by prudent judgment and discretion, is always a fundamentally positive approach to successfully building trusting relationships with our colleagues. Sharing everything about our lives may not always be appropriate based on the situation, but not sharing anything is also the wrong answer. Strike a balance and use good judgment. Building effective workplace relationships is an extremely important skill for any employee. The strength of our relationship-building skills can affect our ability to negotiate effectively, deliver projects and meet deadlines. This ultimately results in achieving our own performance objectives.
  3. 3. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 3 THE IRW MODEL OF BUILDING TRUST & AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS Being able to establish TRUST is one of the most important aspects of the building authentic relationship at the workplace. There are 3 dimensions that need to be considered (See Figure 1): 1) The apex of trust is ensuring that the INTENT of the relationship is unambiguous, free from agenda and focused on the mutually satisfying outcomes of both parties and not that of only your own. To achieve this, you must be able to set aside personal biases, beliefs, and attitudes which may impact upon the co-worker. Define the boundaries of the relationship if necessary. 2) In developing the RELATIONSHIP, you must focus on the concerns of the other co-worker. Focus on that person, rather than yourself. You must have enough self-confidence to listen without prejudging and enough curiosity to inquire without supposing an answer. At times you may need to subordinate your own ego. You must be motivated more by an internalized drive to do the right thing than by your organization’s rewards or dynamics. Build the relationship with your co-workers, based on mutual responsibility. 3) Having established a clear intent and commenced building a sound, transparent and authentic relationship, next it is critical to being consistent and engaging with the WORDS chosen and shared with your co-workers. You will need to demonstrate effective emotional & social intelligence skills including active listening and empathy. You seek “first to understand”. You will need to show candor and where necessary use creative insight and emotional courage to say it as it is. The correct alignment of INTENT, RELATIONSHIP, and WORD will establish and foster the growth of TRUST and AUTHENTICITY at the workplace. Figure 1 The IRW Model of Building Authentic Relationships
  4. 4. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 4 “DEVELOPING AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS” Despite society’s emphasis on individuality, the reality is that critical workplace activities and processes today are undertaken by teams. The success of organizations can be closely linked to how well these teams of diverse individuals perform, and it is clear that some teams truly do excel. As illustrated in Figure 2, the following key elements collectively known as “SCORE™” have been found to characterize high-performing teams with trusted authentic relationships. S: Cohesive Team Strategy C: Clear Roles and Responsibilities O: Open Communication & Trust R: Rapid Response E: Effective Leadership Figure 2 The SCORE Framework for Developing Authentic Relationships Developing Authentic Relationships of Teams Cohesive Team Strategy S C Clear Roles and Responsibilities Effective Leadership E R Rapid Response O Open Communication
  5. 5. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 5 High-performing trust-based teams require a complementary set of characteristics known collectively as “SCORE” – cohesive team strategy, clear roles and responsibilities, open communication, rapid response, and effective leadership – as outlined in Table 1. Table 1: “SCORE” Characteristics of Teams with Trust-based & Authentic Relationships Characteristics Descriptions S: Cohesive Team Strategy  High-performing teams with a cohesive strategy will demonstrate why they are in existence by articulating a strong, uniting purpose that is common to all team members.  They will describe how they work together by defining team values and ground rules (team charter). Finally, they will be clear about what they do by defining key result areas. C: Establishing Clear Roles and Responsibilities  Successful teams determine and clearly define individual member roles and responsibilities.  High-performing teams with authentic relationship realistically examine each individual’s responsibilities in terms of personality, interest, and ability, resulting in an accurate understanding of each member’s accountability and contribution to the team. This will minimize potential workplace conflicts. O: Developing Open Communication & trust  Communication is the key component in facilitating or developing authentic relationships at the workplace; its lack limits team success.  Effective communication includes demonstrating active listening as well as flexing and adapting one’s style of communication to suit the other team members. In addition, a cohesive culture is attained when interpersonal interactions flow smoothly and individual differences are also respected and leveraged to enhance overall team functioning and minimize conflicts. R: Rapid Response to Decision Making  A high-performing team responds quickly, as necessary, to changes in the environment, using creativity and “outside the box” thinking.  When faced with a problem, these teams leverage on each other strength and brainstorm possible solutions and create innovative resolutions leveraging on cognitive readiness and critical thinking skills. E: Exemplary and Effective Leadership  An effective team leader is able to develop authentic relationships with the team member by adjusting his or her leadership style (situational leadership) as necessary depending on the task at hand and the skill level of each team member performing that task.  The team leader also plays a critical role in raising morale by providing positive feedback and coaching team members (managerial coaching skills) to improve performance.

  11. 11. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 11 APPENDIX II: CEE MASTER FACILITATOR’S & MASTER EXECUTIVE COACH PROFILE – PROF SATTAR BAWANY (CONTINUED) Brief on Selected Leadership Development Assignment: 1. The Client is a leading global pharmaceutical firm which has achieved rapid growth through mergers and acquisitions (M&A). While M&A was great for the organization, it was challenging for the employees with new roles and responsibilities, new reporting structures and new expectations. Successfully incorporating merged and acquired employees meant getting everyone to feel part of the company’s newly forged customer-centric culture. The "ART" (Accelerating Role Transition) Program was implemented with the employee-driven process for new and transitioning employees; the organization capitalized on the culture and built respect through clear communication between employees and their managers. The organization now includes it in the onboarding program for new hires at all levels and has made it available to all employees changing jobs within the company. As a result, in contrast to many mergers and acquisitions, which show signs of clashing cultures and slow pay-offs, the employees of this firm score high on employee engagement and climate survey and the leaders have quickly “settled in” to new responsibilities to deliver results – fast. 2. The Client is a high-performing, global informational technology firm where the senior leadership team had set ambitious growth goals that rested on Corporate Values. Managers at all levels across the globe are required to align their day-to-day decision making with the values and inspire the workforce to do the same. Working with key leaders, the most effective approach was established for achieving these results in the organization's culture. The solution implemented includes a customized “Values-based Leadership” workshop which was designed to create buy-in to a values-driven culture, help managers connect their personal convictions with the organization’s values and prepare them to build their team’s commitment through compelling communications. The second phase includes an executive coaching program for managers and a values alignment process for individual contributors. As a result, the senior executive team and all managers lead in communicating and modeling the company’s values. 3. The Client is an Asia Pacific Regional Operations of a Global Financial Services Firm which was expanding and adapting to increasingly competitive market conditions following the Global Financial Crisis in 2008-2009. In this intensely hypercompetitive and fast-moving environment, the firm understands that there is one factor that keeps the company ahead - the commitment, creativity, and energy of its people. They wanted a radical new focus for the leaders at all levels which would drive the results through engagement of the employee in a manner which will capture the very spirit of the company and act as a motivational, inspiring force. Using these principles and partnering with the firm, the “Leadership That Gets Results” (LTGR), a high-performance leadership development program was designed and delivered. As a result, the LTGR program has created new levels of co-operation and trust that has flourished across the various business units of the company. Managers have become more energized and motivated to take positive action and their new commitment has been cascaded through the entire company. The managers were then ready and able to shape the future success of the company and steered the firm towards achieving its Corporate objectives and sustainable business results.
  12. 12. CEE Key Note Session on “Authenticity Matters: Developing Authentic Relationships at the Workplace” Page 12 APPENDIX II: CEE MASTER FACILITATOR’S & MASTER EXECUTIVE COACH PROFILE – PROF SATTAR BAWANY (CONTINUED) Brief on Selected Executive Coaching Assignment: 1. The coachee is an international assignee in the Asia Pacific for the first time and has a lack of international management and cross-cultural experience. It was decided by the sponsor that a proven coaching process and the senior level international experience of the coach was a valuable additional investment to complement internal processes. Over a six-month period, the executive identified and began to develop a leadership style which would enable him to move onto yet more senior levels, avoiding the derailment that so many high potentials executive experience. A high potential and very marketable executive with cross-cultural experience was subsequently promoted to a global leadership role. 2. The senior leaders of a high growth software organization were exceptionally bright but lacking in leadership skills. A framework for executive coaching engagements was established for the senior leadership team. Determining individual strengths and areas for improvement was the first critical step. The participating executives (coachees) were assessed on two critical scales: business competence and personal connection. With those results as a baseline, interviews with each executive’s direct reports were conducted. That data, combined with the Coach’s observations, formed the basis for very specific, tailored 6-month, one-on-one executive coaching engagements. As a result of the team coaching engagement, the executive management team developed a common language to discuss business strategy, goals, and organizational culture issues. 3. The coachee is a successful business leader but is perceived by the Regional President & CEO as not ready for the transition to the role as Country Head. There was a need for the coachee to shift from being an individual contributor to becoming a team player and leader. Her achievements would need to come through the involvement of others' ideas and opinions and by learning to balance the issues of her boss as well as peers and subordinates. At the end of the 6-months coaching engagement, positive change in the executive's leadership style was perceived at all levels of the organization. Key sensitive strategic alliances were successfully negotiated, resulting in considerable new and sustained relationship with members of the country executive team, which is critical for the client towards her goal of assuming the role of Country Head in the near future. 4. A highly successful marketing professional in a pharmaceutical firm develops better leadership skills and understanding of teamwork. Within six months of the onset of the coaching experience, the client's behavior and leadership style had grown substantially and sustainably. Her retention record for key accounts and staff improved. 5. Project Management Director for a technology start-up company was struggling with gaining consensus on project management goals and on-time delivery of products. Achieved unanimous agreement over difficult issues within cross-functional areas. Executive became more confident and engaged in handling challenging project assignments.
