Performance

Fascinate Your Employees!

Too many organizations have built maintenance cultures where seniority is valued more than productivity, where status quo is more enticing than change, where good is good enough, and one where your most talented employees are your most frustrated. In contrast there are those organizations which have intentionally built what I call a growth culture. A growth culture, is one where seniority matches productivity, where status quo is anathema, where good is the enemy of great, one where your talented employees are the most fascinated.

Fascinated employees are the difference makers. They are highly engaged employees and then some. For not only are they psychologically committed to their roles, but are ideally equipped and suited for those roles. They are in the ‘sweet spot’ of their career. They are in that magical place where who they are meets with what they do in productive harmony. There is a measurable difference between the fascinated employee and the rest.  The greatest profit center in any organization is a fascinated employee. Hence, they are invaluable and irreplaceable.

So, what do you do to create an environment of such fascinated employees?

Shock the system

Surprise the high performer

Expect the unexpected

know the future

Listen to your heart

Who Should Attend

Senior Executives, Division/Department heads and Managers who want to enhance employee performance through the critical thinking strategies provided during this session.

High Performance can be as simple as One plus One!

So what would happen if you were able to build an entire team of fascinated employees?

There is an obvious winning combination of talented performers whenever a team consistently outperforms all others. The Chicago Bulls for at least part of its history has been such a team with the combination of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippin, Horace Grant. The Mars Pathfinder team is another such team. In fact, the consistent winning outcomes that these two teams possessed can be identified and developed in any high performing team. It is a matter of sustaining high performance after achieving high performance outcomes the first time.

Summerville Medical Center, Summerville, South Carolina, has such a team. Year after year SMC has achieved extreme success in employee engagement, patient satisfaction, reduction in LPTMS, and in other important clinical outcomes. We have seen the same consistent high performance across industries and with other clients as well. National Rural Electric Co-operative Association, EAGA Partnerships and Ryder HKS, in the United Kingdom, among others have repeatedly sustained high performing cultures over the years. What do they do differently? They do what this session will teach executives and managers to do; they create a compelling culture.

Through anecdotes, use of humor and real life examples, participants will be taught specific strategies and given tools by which they can begin to create and sustain a high performance culture.
