Tomorrow’s most profitable and successful companies will have their employees backs

The marketplace is rapidly evolving.  Jobs and careers are not what they were even five years ago.

In the very near future, it will be the companies and organizations who nurture the most emotionally healthy environments inside their ranks – both amongst virtual teams and in brick and mortar settings – who will survive and prosper.

Are you an innovative company leader just hired to turn a moribund company culture around?

Have you risen through the ranks of a company you want to stay with, but you are sick and tired of how management does things?

If you are sick and tired of the way it’s always been done and you are ready for a new, more effective and satisfying way, I can help your company or organization prosper at a higher level by encouraging your employees to work with you rather than against you – and without having to use punitive measures.

In today’s workplace employees are looking for more than a paycheck.  They are looking for meaningful work and to make a real difference.  They are looking to be more engaged with your organization and it’s mission.  The more they can ‘buy in’, the more they will support you in what you are wanting to accomplish.

All employees ask is that they be treated respectfully.  When they feel treated well, they will return that treatment ten fold.  The biggest mistake you can make is to distrust and mistreat your employees.

Boiled down to it’s foundation often companies and managers focus too much on tasks and not enough on people, period.   Yes it’s important to be clear about performance and be sure employees are accountable.  But that’s only half of your job.

I can help you balance the scales.  Because it’s not an easy balance to achieve and maintain.

How do you know if you are mistreating your employees? Most will never tell you directly.

Most talk with their feet
as they leave your company
to go where they are
treated better.

WHERE I WILL BEGIN TO HELP YOU:  I will work with you to do a 360 degree assessment and evaluation of the emotional pulse of your work environment.  Just like a good ‘shrink’ would.   😉

This in depth assessment – done not by written surveys but by meeting face-to-face with staff and management – will help me identify the most critical areas of your organization needing emotional support.

If you follow my recommendations and implement them, you are likely to see increases in morale, productivity and profit and decreases in…

  • Employee turnover and burnout
  • Management turnover and burnout
  • Employee Physical and Mental Health Costs
  • Sick days
  • Disability
  • Employee Lawsuits

I look forward to working with you!
