Nobody knows the work better than the people doing it. Improvements they make are much more likely to be successful than improvements coming from management, task forces or consultants. You get their buy-in and they see the benefits of the improvements. How to get the workers to speak in the boss's lingo, so the boss hears it puts everyone on the same page of reality and priorities. The leader's job has more enjoyment to it.
Our clients' experiences have consistently shown that early victories quickly build confidence and enthusiasm in the work force. They learn thinking skills they will use everyday; that management will listen to them; they can make real changes in their work; they will expect success with future efforts. It’s critical for leaders to understand how our brain builds momentum in learning new behaviors and thus leading to sustained efforts of improvement.
The enthusiasm that comes from the early victories will lead people to take on bigger challenges and deliver bigger victories. You’ll see synergies develop between the project teams and innovation in their solutions. Leaders who know how to tap into the innovation and enthusiasm in their work forces are the ones who will succeed in today’s competitive environment.
BrainSmart Leaders know the value of this enthusiasm, the value of skills and learn how to use them to set the direction in which an organization and its members move.
Our work with clients has consistently shown that 25-30% of the work done in an organization is done to address mistakes or problems. We've become so used to handling problems that we've become immune to the time we spend doing it. The BrainSmart Leader workshop shows you how to provide direction and support to your employees so that they will begin to question why they do things they way they do and start identifying opportunities for improvement. They will come to you with solutions instead of problems and their productivity will improve.
