The Great Workplace: Building Trust and Inspiring Performance
Authors: Michael Burchell, Jennifer Robin
What separates a Great Company from a merely good one? More than offering great pay and quirky perks, a great workplace is one where employees trust the people they work for, take pride in what they do, and are inspired to achieve superior performance.
Based on a many years of research and training conducted at the Great Place to Work Institute--producers of the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For Annual List--The Great Workplace: Building Trust and Inspiring Performance Workshop provides managers with a set of powerful, effective exercises that will help them understand the conceptual and practical considerations of creating a high-trust work environment. In the workshop, participants will:
Examine the essential elements of a Great Place to Work, especially the crucial role of trust.
Build an understanding of the key role managers play in building a great workplace.
Identify opportunities and generate ideas for making change within the scope of their responsibility.
Gain practical tools for improving the quality of their work environment.

This instrument is a stimulating new addition to existing supervisory and management development workshops on change, teams, and leadership. The 20-item questionnaire can be completed and self-scored in 15 minutes, and includes brief and insightful interpretive material. A companion Trainer's Guide includes training designs, a lecturette, norms, and references. The result is a complete program of assessment, training, discussions, and development of your managers and supervisors.
Increase management effectiveness through improved motivation skills. This proven instrument is based on the classic motivation theories of Maslow and Herzberg which identify motivating factors in terms of an individual's security, social, self-esteem, and self-actualization needs. Managers will learn to understand their own motivations as well as take into account employees' motivations as they relate to performance and change issues.
Managing by Motivation teaches leaders and managers how to capitalize on employees' natural motivators rather than focusing on external motivators that are less relevant to them.

What if work became as exciting as play?
This is the powerful concept behind this innovative training workshop. Now you can deliver innovative leadership training unlike any you’ve known before.
Instead of old, worn-out concepts like the difference between leadership and management, superficial motivational “tricks”, and simplistic, mechanical interpersonal tactics, this workshop goes directly to the source of human behavior, intrinsic motivation, and inspired action. The training is based on an exciting comparison between the worlds of work and play, asking the intriguing question: Why can’t work be as exciting and self-motivating as play? The workshop examines the factors that make play exciting, and offers ways for the leader to act as a coach to create these factors in his or her team players.
We use the setting of a soccer coach. Soccer was chosen because it appeals equally to men and women (many women act as “Soccer Moms”, taking their children to soccer games in the US and Canada, and thus have become familiar with the game. Moreover, soccer is the number one sport in the rest of the world, so the program has an international appeal as well.)
Based on research in emotional intelligence, motivation, Industrial Psychology, human communication, and leadership, the workshop delivers to participants reality-based approaches to leadership, team coaching, and supervision. The result is leadership and supervisory training at its most innovative best – an experiential workshop your participants will love to take and talk about to their colleagues.
