PEOPLE

Creating a highly engaged and productive strength-based culture

EXPERIENCE THE THRILL OF CREATING A HIGHLY ENGAGED CULTURE

We help you create a highly-engaged and productive organization - which is critical to success and sustainability.

Whenever we've led or facilitated transformations, we've actively engaged the workforce.  We've found that 95% of employees are thrilled to be a part of something important.   There are few things more rewarding than to have people actively working together, and building on each others strengths.

MOST CHANGE INITIATIVES FAIL - WHY?

Over 60% of Lean, Six-Sigma, TOC, and other continuous improvement initiatives fail.  Over 70% of new strategies, products, and change initiatives fail.   Why?  Because leaders are seen as untrustworthy and the employees aren't involved enough in the process.

PEOPLE REALLY ARE THE KEY TO SUCCESS OR REASONS FOR FAILURE

People are the key to your organization’s success. They are also the reasons for failure. Learn how the right kind of accountability and tools can solidify change, help you meet targets, and reduce people related defective performance, not in some marginal way, but dramatically.

TRUSTWORTHY LEADER, PRIDE IN WORK, CAMARADERIE.

Gallup and The Great Place to Work Institute (producers of the “FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For”) have been collecting and analyzing vast amounts of data for decades on what constitutes a great and productive workplace. Through their ongoing research, it is clear that what employees want most is a trustworthy leader. In other words, employees want to trust the people they work for. Employees also want to have pride in the work that they do. Furthermore, they want to work in an environment of camaraderie, where they enjoy the people they work with.

STRENGTHS

People are most productive when they are able to focus on and use their strengths. Gallup found, after researching 1.4 million people and 50,000 teams, that there was only one question that consistently and more effectively predicted whether a person was part of a high performance team. The question was, “at work, do you have an opportunity to use your strengths every day?”

Leaders of great organizations create cultures that deeply value their people.  They create an environment of both high performance and caring. They create a strengths-based culture by identifying and developing the strengths of their people to achieve organizational and personal goals. Their employees are passionate, feel empowered, and take pride in what they do.

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Employee engagement is the heart of the organization.  It is the fuel that leads to results. High employee engagement is a sign of a healthy, sustainable organization. Substantive research shows that employee engagement significantly increases productivity, customer satisfaction, innovation, profitably, and earnings. It also reduces turnover, safety incidents, absenteeism, quality defects, and shrinkage. High productivity is one outcome of employee engagement.

One of our top goals is create a passionate and highly engaged environment.  We've had tremendous success when we've used a highly inclusive approach to assessing and improving an organization. We identify and focus on the strengths of people, and we strive to help them to succeed.

We will help you, your leaders, and your people to effectively discover their passions and natural talents. We will use our popular book to help guide you through this process
