Dismantling Dysfunction

Dismantling Dysfunction

A podcast series for anyone who experiences dysfunction in organizations, leadership, or in relationships. Join organizational development and behavioral change experts Dr. Anne Dranitsaris and Heather Dranitsaris-Hilliard weekly as they introduce you to the most common dysfunctions in organizations and help you dismantle them by delving into the systemic causes behind them and telling you exactly what to do about it. Because of their more than 70 combined years of working with leaders and organizations, nationally and internationally, of all sizes and dysfunctions, there aren’t too many that they don’t have experience with. In these uncertain times, it’s no wonder most organizations suffer from a myriad of dysfunctions and people issues they have no idea how to deal with. Too often, leaders go for the quick fix, leaving the root causes of the dysfunction shooting up in another area just as the last symptom has been dealt with. This results in disengaged employees, loss of high performers, poor productivity, and an unhealthy bottom line. No matter the size of the organization, any dysfunction is systemic and requires a holistic approach to rooting out and dismantling its cause. Otherwise, you’ll stay with the whack-a-mole approach, dealing with pop up symptoms without changing anything. As experts in the neuropsychology of personality and leadership, Anne & Heather have co-authored and written almost 100 books, created the Striving Styles Personality System® and developed life-changing programs that help leaders and employees work to their potential. They add depth and breadth to their work because of their commitment to meeting the needs of their clients and passion for achieving potential – their clients and their own. Their clients often come to them when they have tried other consultants to help them deal with their dysfunctions. Too often consultants use a one-size fits all and tries to make the clients problem fit their packaged solution. With Anne & Heather, it’s the other way around. They look deeply into the psychology, structure, and functions of the client’s business, what they are trying to achieve, then they assess functionality and see what’s getting in the way of its potential. Once they identify the root cause of the dysfunction, they bring a variety of solutions - strategy facilitation, leadership development programs, performance management, reward & retention strategies, career progressions, and so much more to transition the client’s organization from dysfunction to functionality. If your organization’s fiscal health and human resources are suffering because of common organizational dysfunctions and you need help, this show is for you. If you’re dealing with the symptoms of one or more of these dysfunctions, such as disengaged employees, loss of high performers, poor productivity, lack of accountability or a failure to achieve organizational goals leading to an unhealthy bottom line, you’ll gain insight into why what you’ve been doing to date hasn’t worked and what to do about it. Heather and Anne bring organizational and leadership dysfunctions to life through client stories that illustrate how they delve into the organizations psychology and cultural norms to see how the lack of systems, fixed beliefs, and egos of the leaders contribute to it. Each episode in the series contains powerful information to help you dismantle the dysfunction in your organization, increasing productivity, improving employee engagement, and achieving your organizational outcomes. You’ll leave each show armed with a new tool for dismantling the dysfunction in your organization.
