New Seminar Targets The Dirty Little Secret That's Killing Employees & Business' Bottom Line
By: Catherine Lenard Unlimited
The seminar, created and facilitated by Lenard, empowers employees by expanding self and situational awareness while giving simple, insightful, and powerful keys for moving beyond what's holding them back.
The best leaders know that fear-riddled employees cripple a company, an all-too common phenomenon as people worry about keeping their jobs, paying their bills, higher workloads, and managing their lives. Fear is an aggressive predator of joy and creativity in the workplace. Human Workplace expert Liz Ryan reported to Bloomberg Business Week on NBCNews.com, "Chief executives know in their hearts that smart people, set loose to solve big problems, are responsible for every success and innovation industry has ever seen. Fear-trampled employees don't do a thing for your business."
Some examples of fear-based (toxic) culture are:
• Operating from a scarcity viewpoint
• Aggression versus balanced assertion
• Gossip, blame, bullying
• Secretive management
• Metrics as a singular goal framework
• Management in denial (doesn't want to know the truth)
• Rigidity in dependence upon set policies
The seminar addresses the "fear busters" for moving beyond feeling stressed, stuck, and powerless that employees can use in their professional and personal lives. This is important because an undercurrent of fear in the workplace or one's personal life can undermine the productivity of the most balanced person. Humor is incorporated into the materials for levity and perspective.
As stated in a recent Huffington Post Business article by David Peck that addresses workplace fear, "Taking stress more seriously and playing a more active role in understanding and helping your colleagues monitor and manage it is not just a nicety — it's good management — a necessity given the pace and demands of the workplace, now more than ever. Attention to this area will ultimately be reflected in the moods and attitudes of your team as well as the overall results of your organization."
The training materials are based on proven psychological and universal principles and will be available in March in advance of April's Stress Awareness Month.
