WuxiCham monthly meeting took place on December 3rd at Wineloft. The topic of the event was “Balancing the magic triangle of Management, Employee and Customer”, facilitated by our own Jim Nelson.
In today’s turbulent and ever changing times most of us have to balance the interests of multiple stakeholders in our daily work. Balancing the magic triangle of the Boss, the Worker and the Customer and its interdependencies in a successful way is crucial for sustainable business success.
Jim facilitated a workshop around this topic discussing how the different stakeholders relate to each other and how we may have natural tendencies to focus on some group/groups at the expense of others. Jim’s introduction to the topic was followed by a self-assessment, and scoring, of behavioral traits when interacting with each stakeholder.
The audience was then divided into groups that dug deeper into needs, expectations, and difficulties of Worker, Customer, and Boss. Lively group discussions followed as the teams worked through their assignment sheet and the excellent dinner catered by Wineloft.
Finally the groups shared their learnings and Jim provided the team with suggested further reading on the topic. As always, we finished with mingling and some members stayed a bit longer to catch up with each others before the holiday season.
The last WuxiCham event for 2020 is the Winter Bazaar, which was organized just a week after this gathering.
