The Great Workplace
"Great" workplaces exist when employees trust the organization implicitly, take pride in what they do, and are inspired to achieve superior performance. However, this requires a different breed of leaders knowing how to instill and reinforce these beliefs in every communication, decision, and interaction. It requires leaders who realize their actions make a world of difference to their employees.
The Great Workplace is an extensive training workshop designed to increase employee productivity and boost performance. Based on more than 25 years of research, this training package is packed with accessible and indispensable ideas, inspiration, and actionable plans for creating great workplaces.
How It Works
The Great Workplace provides a flexible full-day learning session, which includes an interactive mix of a self-assessment, small group exercises, case studies, and an extensive group discussion. Comprehensive facilitator materials make introducing, guiding, and closing each step of the session a breeze.
