Passion at Work: Igniting Your Team's Brilliance

Passion at Work: Igniting Your Team's Brilliance
May 9, 2012 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
According to Gallup, 80% of people are unhappy in their work. That means that only 20% of us are happy and fulfilled in the work that we’re doing. What a waste of human talent, energy, and skill! Not to mention the financial costs to the organization related to stress, poor health, and turnover. In this era of global competition, organizations need each person functioning at his or her optimal level to create synergy and leverage the collective intelligence of the group to address market challenges.

This session is an introduction to The Passion Test for Business, a new approach to employee engagement that helps leaders and team members:
1) Get clear on their unique value contribution in the market and what's most meaningful for them in the work they do
2) Get on the same page together in creating a much more inclusive and rewarding work environment for both individual and organizational sustainability

When all team members are clear about what matters most for the organization to deliver its unique contribution to its customers; and managers and their staff are clear on what drives individual behavior, the team’s brilliance emerges in the form of innovation, creative problem solving, team cohesiveness, high energy, enhanced morale, and competitive advantage for the organization.

In this session, we'll look at the research on employee engagement and how it impacts the bottom line; and then explore an exciting alternative to traditional levers to boost employee performance and satisfaction. You'll learn how passion at work is the critical differentiator for success in business today.
Who Should Participate
* Human Resources professionals particularly interested in employee engagement, talent management, executive development / leadership, employee health / wellness, organizational effectiveness, total rewards, organizational culture * business leaders / owners

"I didn't feel the speaker was confidently prepared. I thought she elaborated needlessly on ""passion"". I get it but most of it is so intangible. I didn't come away with any thoughts to really ""ignite"" my team." 2 / 5

I would have liked more time spent on actual implementation practices. I think a lot of HR professionals are already aware of how engaged employees have a positive impact on business. It would have been more helpful to discuss ways to accomplish this which was addressed more during the Q&A at the end. 3 / 5

Too much time spent describing what passion is and giving background rather than focusing on what new approaches to take. The latter appeared to be the focus of the webinar description. 2 / 5

Very interesting approach to the discussion of employment engagement... The problem with the slides freezing was distracting but I thought the facilitator did a good job of alerting the speaker of the problem 3 / 5
