Why You Should Attend a Workshop Now
If you want more value from your work now, attend a WorkExcellence Workshop. When you attend a WorkExcellence Workshop you will receive immediate value and you will learn how to generate additional value in the future. Our Workshops are centered using your actual work. We quickly get you grounded in the concepts then allow you to spend most of you time applying the WorkExcellence Method – Your Way to your work.
Our Workshops allow you to create a visual representation of your work. The value you receive from the initial two-day workshop is:
- Create a common way of working and Get Everyone on the Same Page
- Create Clarity to current state of Your Work
- Focus Forward and plan your Next Steps
- Understand how to Sustain Your Momentum and create Successful Patterns that work
Conversations – Learning – Application
Applying a common method and language allows you to have structured conversations about specific elements of your work. These time-tested conversations allow you and your team to focus on the work at hand and reduce circling and jumping around without the common method.
The learning is interactive. You will see and gain powerful insights about your work. You will understand the WorkExcellence thinking and apply this thinking to your work. By applying the common method across an organization, you will be able to quickly understand current state and next steps about any work. The learning and understanding are immediate and impactful.
We introduce the concepts and terms and you immediately apply them to your work. You create four 1-page visuals during the workshop. These four pages aid you in “Telling the Story” about your work, the results, and allows you to manage your work moving forward. Upon leaving the workshop, you will have a focused plan that you can execute now.
