Situational Awareness: Managing the Hidden Rules of Engagement

It’s human nature for people to do whatever they can to avoid threats to their well-being. This constant vigil includes changing organizational rules of engagement to fit within personal comfort zones. Consequently, the stakeholders in an organization do certain things in certain ways to meet what they believe to be their job responsibilities. Their actions are based on their perceptions of the best results for them within their framework of reference with as little effort as possible. These “in practice” hidden rules of engagement (the real organizational culture) are difficult to determine and subsequently manage.


Decision-making in complex, dynamic areas requires precise information about the status of the surrounding environment. This webinar explores some tools and techniques that have been used to successfully deal with and manage this hidden culture. In this webinar Scott Stribrny describes a situational awareness methodology (SAM) that is based on a set of processes and protocols that go beyond simply asking for the data from our direct reports.


Learning Objectives:

·         Identify the importance of situational awareness for successful management.

·         Define how to reveal the hidden culture.

·         Identify 11 key questions to ask.

·         Define a four-step situational analysis methodology

·         Examine how to put it all together into an effective action plan.

0.5 RUs will be issued for your attendance at this meeting.
