    Business Culture – An Asset or Liability

    Competition is tough!  Everyone is constantly looking for a “new” market, product/service, process, physical layout, design, delivery model, or technology that will differentiate them from everyone else.  And, if they are fortunate enough to find “an edge” – how do they sustain it? According to Harvard Business School, “business culture can have a significant impact on a firm’s long-term economic performance.”   So why do so few companies “master” their business culture’s competitive edge?

    Key Learning Objectives include:

    • Understand and help others discover how to “See” and “Hear” business culture
    • Explain how culture impacts high performance and ways to maximize each elements impact
    • Identify some of your culture differentiators for employees?  And then, its impact on customers?
    • Define and use the Think-Feel-Act model
    • Be able to dispel common myths about accountability

    A Sustainable Fuel for High Performance

    Many businesses today struggle with “people issues” including: the ability to attract and retain the best talent – employee resistance to change – absenteeism – and individual accountability. All these “people issues” create frustration, waste and lost performance. Ultimately, how employees think & feel impacts how they act. Their actions and behaviors then impact your organization’s brand, performance, and work culture.

    Key Learning Objectives include:

    • Define the four key elements of a high performance business culture and the importance of each element
    • Be able to explain key drivers of engagement and “4 Rights” model
    • Give examples of key external business metric – engagement correlation findings
    • Develop a list of tactical & practical ways to keep your organization’s performance fuel tank full with engagement
