The situation: The firm realized that to stand out in a hyper-competitive marketplace, they needed to have all employees fully engaged and focused on the organization’s goals. Yet, while many training initiatives had been implemented, workforce performance wasn’t where it needed to be. It seemed that just because people knew how to do something it didn’t mean that they were actually doing it.
The approach: Our established point of view about what drives employee performance and engagement proved to be the key for taking the workforce to greater heights of achievement. With our consulting guidance, Helping Others Succeed was implemented in North America, Asia and Europe to give managers the tools and the mindset to understand what employees needed from them. The process also helped managers coach efficiently and effectively – to gain commitment to and alignment with organizational goals. Managing Personal Growth was offered to help employees systematically and proactively align their job satisfaction and career development with the organization’s priorities.
The results: The organization now has a process in place to manage performance and grow talent in line with business priorities. It continues to reinforce the need for employee engagement with our exclusive engagement model. It’s tracking the coaching partnership discussions conducted by managers. Bottom line: It’s easier for leaders to tackle the issue of low performance because of the tools and structure provided by Managing Personal Growth and Helping Other’s Succeed.
