How to triple your people's productivity.
e-Report No. 15, ISBN 1 901810 09 7
You can triple your employees’ productivity
Yes, this is a bold claim!
Read this Senior Managers’ Briefing to know how to strip away all the guff around leadership styles, psychological profiles and leadership models. You will see how the simple, low-cost everyday activities that a brilliant leader can do to triple employee productivity.
As a senior manager, you are already leading effectively.
However, the pressures at the top often make it difficult to get the right information to perform even more effectively. It is also difficult for senior managers to take the luxury of standing back and figu9ing out how to do things better. Doing things better could translate your valuable experience into practical systems to help your managers.
This is a Senior Managers’ e-briefing, not just another leadership book! After a quick two-hour read you’ll have high-level insights that go beyond the basics of leadership. It provides a deeper insight into why humans do what we do and why the usual “101 leadership principles” work.
This is a very practical Briefing that will give you deeper insights to avoid the fads. It will show you how to:
- Use a very simple technique that takes only one day to identify and then fix existing operational problems and avoid others developing.
- Improve productivity and morale by simply scrapping non-value adding work
- Use the latest insights into what people really want – what their deep motivator are.
- Adjust your own behaviour slightly so that your actions increase the “happiness factor” (About 70% of people are unhappy in their jobs – what a blow to productivity).
- Communicate with everyone in your organisation simply but effectively
- Translate fuzzy concepts of vision and strategy into tools that motivate people
- Ask certain question at the recruitment stage to ensure (as best you can) the people you hire are high-producers
- Guide your managers so that they can do more to help their people excel.
The high-level advice if delivered as a consulting exercise in-company, it would cost in the region of £5970. Therefore, at £67.97 (excluding VAT) the value speaks for itself! Guaranteed. My promise – if you don’t think the advice in this Briefing changes the way you think about leadership and gives sensible practical guidance, just return it for a full, no-quibble refund.
