American Idol Syndrome

This on-line assessment followed by team training provides you with tools to align your natural interests to your natural skills.

According to Stanford University , 55% of employees are misplaced in the jobs they are doing. Real passion flows from doing the job you love AND are good at.

Fallacy of Retention

Turnover is only a problem when you are losing the A Players you want to keep.

Turnover is a key measure of the stability of a business. High growth companies face a paradox: to play the game they have to field the team; to win the game, they have to build a team of A players. Slow growth companies face the same paradox but have already fielded the team and can't seem to change the players. This course teaches you how to measure the right thing and do the right thing for your business and your employees. Retaining A players is tough when you have a team of mostly C and B players. This course helps you understand the fundamental drivers of retention and the necessary actions required to build a culture of A players.

2 hour course, may be conducted on-line.

People want to be a part of a winning team. This course teaches you the fundamentals of building a team of competent winners who love winning. This course helps you to understand your current company culture and the reasons why your company is and is not an employer of choice.
