In The Workplace

Your workplace issues, taken care of.

People are the heart of your workplace. Understand them, and you'll know how to solve your workplace problems, seize opportunities and outperform your competitors. The Leading High-Performance Teams course is the answer to some of the most important workplace questions and issues.

Engage them at work. It's not the only answer, but it's one of the best.

Gallup's most recent meta-analysis -- a study of many studies -- on team engagement and performance includes data accumulated over the past two decades.

When Gallup analyzed the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged business/work units, those scoring in the top quartile on employee engagement significantly outperformed those in the bottom quartile on these crucial performance outcomes:

higher productivity
higher sales
higher profitability

Attending the Leading High-Performance Teams course will equip you to develop engaged, high-performance employees.

Meet employees' needs as people first. Now is a good time to ask, "What DO human beings need?"

We have you covered. The Leading High-Performance Teams course gives you many ready-to-use tools to immediately understand your people and give them exactly what they need.

The tools and methods in this course address some of the most important human needs in the workplace. Here are a few needs you'll be prepared to meet after you take the course:

  1. 1People need a manager who understands and coaches them. The manager is the strongest factor in employees' engagement.

  2. 2People need the opportunity for development. The inability to grow at work is the No. 1 reason people leave their jobs.

  3. 3People need to know what they're good at. When employees know and use their strengths, they are more engaged -- nearly six times more -- and they perform better.

By attending the Leading High-Performance Teams course, you'll learn how to fulfill these basic human needs. You'll learn to meet your people where they are and coach them to where they could be.

The best managers do three things well: 1) develop strengths, 2) focus on engagement and 3) maximize performance.

  1. 1They understand and appreciate their employees' talents and strengths and use this information to uniquely set up each person for success.

  2. 2They emphasize their team's engagement to ensure that workplace needs are met.

  3. 3They set clear expectations and performance goals, provide strengths-based feedback, and make adjustments to help their team take action.

The Leading High-Performance Teams course teaches you the fundamentals of reshaping how you manage people.
