13th Edition – Transactions vs. Relationships
The focus of the first 2019 issue of the HPA Journal is: Transactions vs. Relationships
In the latest edition of The HPA Journal, we define transactions vs. relationships. It’s one of our favorite topics because we love to watch ‘lightbulbs’ turn on when students understand how easy it is to move from a transaction based organization to a relationship based organization.
12th Edition – The Pathway™
The focus of the second 2018 issue of the HPA Journal is: The Pathway
I often hear people in leadership roles say, “We’ve got to change the work culture!”. I can tell such leaders are clearly experiencing the painful results of behaviors and choices that their employees are making at work. Upon closer examination, we find that there is an astounding mismatch in behaviors that are observed by the managers and behaviors that managers would like to see in the workplace.
In the latest edition of The HPA Journal, we have compiled several compelling articles from expert authors designed to help you define and leverage the core of your organizational performance. We at HPA are delighted to bring you this edition packed with insights and practical applications as to how to achieve and become a ‘One Team’ organization.
11th Edition – 5 Generations at Work
The focus of the First 2018 issue of the HPA Journal is: 5 Generations at Work
Are our efforts to avoid “hurting someone’s feelings” lowering the bar? Are Millennials (soon to be the largest workforce) to be feared or embraced? While the Millennial worldview is in fact much different than the Boomers and the X’ers, tapping into what they really bring to the table offers great promise for the future. This issue is chock-full of stats, insights, strategies, and tools to help understand and cope in a quickly changing world. Don’t miss a word of it.
10th Edition – Business Imperatives
The focus of the Second 2017 issue of the HPA Journal is: Business Imperatives
Man in the Arena is an excerpt from the speech, “Citizenship in aRepublic,” delivered by US President Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne in Paris, France on April 23, 1910. It sets the tone for this edition of the Journal. “The time has come to turn the page on our make-things-better efforts by ‘thinking globally’; by taking a Next-Generation approach. It’s time to spend ourselves in this worthy cause. Those who do, and do so with great devotion, will be forth coming heroes.
Their organizations will benefit mightily. Proper focus on human performance as the CORE of all PI is where it all begins. Doing so, while following a simple yet systematic pathway, brings the four Business Imperatives together- Reliability, Efficiency, Productivity, and Safety (REPS).Understanding this, and proceeding accordingly to develop a one team modus operandi in your organization is the key to your future (and that of your organization).
9th Edition – The Neurology of Leadership
The focus of the Winter 2017 issue of the HPA Journal is: The Neurology of Leadership
Recent breakthroughs in Neuroscience reveal exceptional opportunities for impacting the brain, influencing the mind, and transforming behaviors. In this edition of The HPA Journal, leaders and practitioners are given answers: HOW to leverage newly discovered insights into actionable strategies and tactics for improving performance.
8th Edition – Leveling Up
The focus of the Fall 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Leveling Up
This issue is all about taking a look at old ways of thinking and doing, to ‘leveling up’ to new paradigms, new perspectives, and more effective ways of taking action and influencing others. And there is no field better suited, nor better positioned to benefit from such transcendence than safety (and “safety culture”).
7th Edition – Coaching Vs. Mentoring
The focus of the Summer 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Coaching Vs. Mentoring
Mentoring is NOT about databases, check sheets with ‘ticky boxes’, or looking only for sub-standard performance. Mentoring is about relationships. When done properly, it’s the single best tool you have available for growing alignment, ownership, and a sense of being “one team” within any organization.
6th Edition – Moving At The Speed Of Culture
The focus of the Winter 2016 issue of the HPA Journal is: Moving At The Speed Of Culture
None of us can afford to simply stand still in our jobs or in our lives. Our culture is speeding by too quickly for a pause in movement. Managing at the speed of culture can be even more intimidating. That’s what this issue is all about- Speed of Culture. The world is moving so fast, that to simply maintain ‘status-quo’ is no longer good enough, interesting enough, or exciting enough. In fact, in business (and in life) stasis is essentially- death.
5th Edition – Safety Culture
The focus of the Fall 2015 issue of the HPA Journal is: SAFETY CULTURE: WHAT IT IS, WHY IT MATTERS, HOW TO GROW IT
From being subject to a safety bureaucracy to thinking different and understanding ‘melted cheese’, this issue of the HPA Journal addresses the concept of “safety culture”-from what NOT to do, to how to focus on human performance to make a true and lasting (next-level) difference.
4th Edition – Leadership On Purpose
The focus of the Summer 2015 issue of the HPA Journal is: LEADERSHIP ON PURPOSE
You should be managing conditions while leading people. Are you aware of the difference? This issue of the HPA Journal is all about discovering and understanding next-level leadership.
3rd Edition – Culture Change: Bushing the Myths
The focus of the Spring 2015 issue of the HPA Journal is: CULTURE CHANGE
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast, ‘operational excellence’ for lunch, and everything else for dinner.” Peter Drucker’s words have never been more pertinent than they are today. Amidst a storm of regulation, economic challenge, and ‘the great shift change’, culture is truly what’s driving your ship. It’s what will ultimately determine your future.
In this issue of the HPA Journal, we bust a couple of myths about ‘culture change’ with viewpoints from thought leaders Leandro Herrero, Brain Kight, and Tim Autrey, insights from Senior Leader, Dr. Jeremy Welland, and a ‘frontline’ perspective from the ‘Old Safety Codger’, Andy Euthon.
Were you aware that only 71 of the original ‘Fortune 500’ companies even still exist? Pay attention- if you don’t manage your culture, your culture will manage you.
2nd Edition – The Power of Engagement
The focus of the WINTER 2015 issue of the HPA Journal is: The Power of ENGAGEMENT
Through articles and interviews, it offers great insight into how to more effectively engage people when wanting to effect change. An interview with Gary Mechler offers a senior leader perspective on the importance of relationships, integrity, and the need for courage. This issue provides deeper awareness of why people resist change, and insights into more powerful influence. Drink in the perspectives. Engage in conversations with the authors. Offer your thoughts in the HPA Member Forum.
1st Edition – Accountability Deconstructed
The focus of the FALL 2014 issue of the HPA Journal is: ACCOUNTABILITY
BUT… this is NOT your mother’s (or your father’s) version of the “A Word”. This is ACCOUNTABILITY DECONSTRUCTED.
Leading off with Just Discipline by Executive Mentor and HPA Advisor, Mike Blevins, this issue deconstructs the concept of “accountability” and how it truly works.
The concepts are then brought back together into a proactive approach to accountability that offers actionable insights that you can put to use immediately within your organization.
