Introducing the Workplace Culture Makeover Masterclass

by Oct 25, 2017

Research shows that happy employees are 12% more productive. Research also shows that engaged employees have a lot less intention to leave an organization than disengaged ones. And there’s plenty more research with other great stats.

But you don’t need stats to know engagement is powerful; it’s common sense. Engaged employees feel a profound connection to their work, and they act on that connection every moment of every day, choosing to offer their very best to your organization and its customers. 

And you’ve poked around the internet looking for information about how to drive engagement, but you haven’t really taken any action.

Why? Because engagement seems elusive. It seems hard to measure and hard to create. Where do you even begin?

Well, you begin right here.


Understanding the Power of Workplace Culture

Workplace culture isn’t just a buzzword; it’s the soul of an organization. It determines how employees interact, collaborate, and innovate. A strong culture aligns values, beliefs, and behaviors, creating a cohesive workforce. But what if this culture needs a refresh?

Workplace culture isn’t just a backdrop to daily operations; it’s the DNA that defines an organization. Recognizing its power and influence is crucial in fostering an environment where employees thrive, creativity flourishes, and success becomes a shared journey.

By acknowledging and actively shaping workplace culture, organizations can harness its potential to drive innovation, retain top talent, and achieve sustainable growth. It’s not just about understanding culture—it’s about harnessing its power to propel the organization towards greater heights.


Workplace Culture Makeover Masterclass

Introducing my 8 module, online, totally awesome course: The WorkplaceCulture Makeover Masterclass.

You see me talk about culture-change all the time. Some may say I eat, breathe, and sleep culture change. I write, train, consult and coach culture-change. And they all point to this fine moment: the ultimate organizational culture hack.

The course includes 35 videos, 36 checklists/worksheets, and two of my training programs. Yep, the course includes slides, attendee workbooks, and facilitator’s guides, for my two most popular training programs.

The course launches officially on Nov 10. But because you’re on my enewsletter list I wanted to offer it up to you first – on the cheap.

The course is action-oriented. I will tell you EXACTLY WHAT TO DO to build a positive workplace culture.

By the time you’re done with all 8 modules, if you’ve done the work, you will have:

  • distributed a survey to your workforce
  • put together an action committee to create change
  • created and executed a strategic plan for culture
  • trained your workforce in positive workplace skills
  • updated your performance management system
  • updated your interviewing and hiring processes

If you know culture is important, but you don’t know where to begin, then begin right here.

Transforming workplace culture isn’t a quick fix but a journey that requires dedication, persistence, and collaboration. Remember, the goal isn’t just a superficial makeover but a profound shift that positively impacts employee morale, engagement, and ultimately, the success of the organization. By investing in your workplace culture, you’re investing in the heart of your company.

See you on the other side!
