Presentation: Overcoming the (totally predictable AND avoidable!!!) Pandemic of Dysfunctional Organizations and Disengaged Employees

 

Decades of research – as well as common sense – suggest that unmotivated people working in unhealthy workplaces are less productive, less innovative, and less creative. But, although it’s well known how to engage employees and create healthy work environments, employee engagement in America is barely above 30%, and in Australia it’s a mere 14% on average, and Japan at a shocking 6! Why? It’s the manager! Managers are uniquely positioned to create toxic, dysfunctional cultures.

Peter Drucker reportedly said “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” An organization’s culture is as invisible as the air that we breathe, and as inescapable as gravity. Unfortunately, no one feels personally responsible for creating the culture! Come explore the dark side of organizations, and the bright future available to those who are determined to “lead from any chair” to re-shape their organizations and generate great results by design.

Wooohooo! Tell me more!
