RH Ágil com Pia Maria

June 11, 2021


NOTE: The introduction to this video is in Portuguese. The interview in English starts at 10:13.


Welcome to an interactive session where we'll cover what HR leaders and managers need to be aware of when adjusting their ways of working to the new paradigm of employee-oriented organizations (self-management) and how to get people to go in a certain direction without using power formal.

In an agile organization, it's more about enabling teams to self-organize in an agile reality, unlocking human potential and optimizing performance in a complex and agile world. You unlock human potential by getting to know your employees deeply and taking the time to understand what would drive them in the direction that is best for the organization.

Leadership practices need to be adjusted to the new paradigm of employee-led organizations and will be more about creating prerequisites for innovation in infrastructure, culture, processes and systems than providing strict rules and policies and enforcing them .

Employee motivation is made possible with less control, transparent visualization, confidence and continuous improvement, along with a deep understanding of what motivates each employee.
