The 7 Principles of Building a High Performance Culture
Re-engaging a disillusioned or demotivated workforce is a key issue for many businesses, as a consequence of cost cutting or downsizing in recessionary times. Many CEOs and executives are wrestling with the ‘how to’ of reigniting the efforts of their workforce. David Smith’s masterclass on the 7 principles of building a high performance culture, gives a fascinating insight for participants, into the case study of the Asda business turnaround from near bankruptcy to world class success. There is much learning for all businesses, with inspirational stories to back up the principles. Size of business comparators is irrelevant, since this is a story about the practicalities of managing people well, whether you manage 10 or 10,000 people. Participants will leave with practical tools and takeaways concerning engaging their people and transforming business performance.
David’s approach is to tell stories. He does not use PowerPoint, and will have the audience actively participate in his content. The approach is learning by debate and discussion, with a practitioner who has been there, done it, has the battle scars, and is willing to share what he has learned in a very engaging way. The workshop will include:
- Confirming the link between culture and performance.
- Proving an agenda of 7 simple, actionable leadership steps to building a culture of high performance.
- Providing a memorable storytelling approach which members will remember for a long time.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have action plans to meet the needs of their own business context. David asks individuals to form their plan as he is speaking. He recognises that executives generally respond badly to a one size fits all solution, and asks them to utilise ideas and tools which strike them as right for their own business context.
