Increase employee engagement at work…

Based on Do More Great Work, the best-selling book by Michael Bungay Stanier, this program can help turn the tide. It’s specifically designed to give employees the self-management skills they need to increase their personal effectiveness. Each program session is customized for individual clients, but all have the same objective: to help your people support the organization’s goals while they find, start and self-manage their own Great Work.

As a participant, you will:

  • Untangle the difference between Good Work and Great Work (and why you should care)
  • Point to the sources of Great Work (and learn which is the only one you can control)
  • Uncover the seeds of where you can seek out your own Great Work (there are at least two places to look)
  • Discover why companies such as Google use projects as a key way of staying focused on Great Work and practice using the Great Work Project template
  • Learn how to align your Great Work Project with organizational needs
  • Engage the power of creativity and employee collaboration to build a rigorous action plan to kick start your Great Work Project
  • Share strategies to balance your competing responsibilities
  • Develop ways and means to help you stay ‘on track’ and stay focused more effectively on your Great Work

Employees, managers and leaders will leave with a Great Work Project Plan that not only increases their sense of purpose and engagement, but will also contribute directly to the organization’s strategic goals.  It includes:

  • A 30-day, 12 lesson e-course,
  • and access to a comprehensive Booster Shot™ learning portal.

Participants learn ways to stop managing overwhelm and concentrate on the work that matters.

Give your employees, managers and leaders a Great Work
Project Plan to help them manage the overwhelm.
