Introducing the Lunch-N-Learn Culture Series
Written by Gentry Lusby
We love culture at Nxtbook. It shapes who we are, how we work, and the environment we experience everyday.
We believe culture plays a vital role in every organization and that’s why we created the Lunch-N-Learn Culture Series.
Join us throughout 2016 as we tackle topics important for creating a healthy workplace, including:
March 2, 2016 | Creativity | Register Here
Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes, but all too often organizations shy away from incorporating any of it into their internal culture. Whether from fear or lack of knowing how it affects day-to-day operations, organizations are missing an incredible opportunity to generate excitement and intrigue from staff. Learn how a creative atmosphere empowers employees to become innovators at their jobs, foster creative solutions to recurring issues, and create an inspiring environment that others can embrace.
April 27, 2016 | Communication | Register Here
Successful people understand themselves and how their behavior affects others. They are aware of their reactions and how to adapt their behavior to meet the needs of other people and particular situations. Successful people have learned how to maximize what they do well, all while keeping a positive attitude.
To be successful in the workplace, you must first understand healthy and effective communication. In this Lunch-N-Learn Laura will share proven and effective communication principles that you can apply, regardless of your role and position within your organization. Learn about communication styles, including your own, and best practices for adapting and working effectively with others.

Change is inevitable, not optional.
Learning how to manage change and create Change Ready Teams is a vital part to the success of your organization. As we explore change, we’ll take a look at Concepts & Challenges of Change, Methods of Resistance, and how to Create a Change Ready Team.
August 24, 2016 | One-on-One Coaching | Register Here
The 1-1 Coaching Process is often misunderstood and underutilized within organizations. However, we have seen companies transformed after grasping and implementing the 1-1 Coaching Process. During this Lunch-N-Learn, we will unravel the mysteries surrounding the coaching process, discuss three main objectives for coaching, and look at associate development best practices for implementing this process within your organization. Together, these concepts lead to better communication, a better workplace environment, and ultimately, a better culture.
November 16, 2016 | Becoming a Best Place to Work | Register Here
Nxtbook founders, Michael Biggerstaff and Roxanne Edwards never set out for the “Best Place to Work” recognition. They had one goal – create the place they always wanted to work but could never find. This thinking guided their decisions and ultimately led Nxtbook to be ranked at the top of the Best Places to Work in PA list for eight years, taking home the 1st place prize four times. Taking steps to be a best place to work increases productivity levels, reduces staff stress and turnover, and stimulates new interest in your business activities. In this session, Nxtbook Media’s Chief Inspiration Officer discusses techniques to influence culture that can be easily translated for your own company, helping you create a best place to work. Whether you win an award or not, you can develop a winning place to work!
Each Lunch-N-Learn includes a full catered buffet lunch and materials. Lunch will be available beginning at 11:30AM, with the learning session to start at 12PM.
