Most employee performance enhancement programs have limited long-term impact. Why? They fail to address the critical role that energy and intrinsic motivation play in sustaining peak performance. Combining research on high performance cultures, employee engagement, peak performance, and business excellence, this training program provides leaders with a unique approach to performance management that creates a foundation for ongoing gains for both the business and the employees. It strengthens employees’ ability to optimize their own career development, well-being and engagement, and provides leaders and managers at all levels with an in-depth understanding of how to grow and sustain performance, energy and engagement in themselves and their team over time, all of which link to improved business outcomes. The training is structured with application exercises in between each session so that participants have an opportunity to immediately apply what they are learning in the workplace to improve performance and business results.
