Designing Inclusive & Sustainable Performance
DRIVE ENGAGEMENT - For maximum results, employees must be fully engaged at work. A Gallup 2015 poll reports a whopping 68% of employees are disengaged. When personal and corporate values clash there is tension and a direct challenge to performance. Create a culture of trust, seek value alignment, and build hospitable working conditions to unleash sustainable contribution.
Up empathy. Encourage intention.
CULTIVATE FOCUS - In today's "culture of interruption" our ability to focus is under siege We need our corporate athletes to sustain energy and attention to achieve top performance - every day, and we need corporate environments to support neurodiversity. Build an understanding of how to take care of body, mind, and spirit. Facilitate stamina.
Defeat distraction. Build attention.
INSPIRE ACTION - When it comes to getting things done, there is no one way, but there are best practices to manage teams, tasks, time, information, communication, and more. Build customized skills to better manage time, make decisions and prioritize. Tackle saboteurs like perfectionism and procrastination to dramatically improve performance.
Enable autonomy. Optimize execution.
