is good business
When your employees feel seen, heard, and valued, they will stand beside you during even the most tumultuous times. They will be able to remain focused on their work, even as the sands shift around them. Getting culture right is no accident—it requires disciplined strategy and long-term commitment.
Companies with an engaged workforce return 2.6 times the shareholder value compared to companies where engagement is low. Getting your culture right can mean the difference between surviving and thriving.
To be as profitable as possible, every organization needs to embody a positive corporate culture. It needs to be both smart and healthy.
Smart organizations have:
Sound, executed strategy
Healthy organizations have:
High levels of trust
Clear, collaborative expectations
Most leaders we have worked with spend virtually all their energy and time making their organization smarter. Maybe that’s because leaders have more confidence when it comes to their smart decisions.
Or, that it’s easier to see and measure the ROI on smart initiatives. Perhaps it’s because it’s hard to know where to start making organizations healthier. The most common reason I hear for not addressing organizational health is, “We’re doing well enough.”
In his latest book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business, researcher Patrick Lencioni makes the case that organizational health surpasses all other disciplines as the key component to achieving competitive advantage. Here’s why: when organizations are healthy, they naturally grow smarter. Whereas smart organizations will generally become healthier only with targeted effort.
That is the work we do at TeamWorks. We make organizations healthier.
How it works: Organizations select 12-20 high-potential managers. We work with them individually and collectively for six months, integrating in-person classes, one-on-one coaching, and several offsite seminars.
The leaders emerge aligned and unified. Individually, they speak their truth in a way that others can hear it. Collectively, they become relentless in holding accountability for self and others. They actively seek and integrate feedback. They understand the impact they have on those around them (good and bad). Without exception, graduates of our program are more engaged, happier, and less stressed. Our data shows that employees who report to these leaders are happier too!
To explore how your organization can become healthier, give us a call to schedule a consultation. You can also learn more and see what our graduates are saying about our program by going to the "Programs" tab and clicking on "For Leaders".
