Performance Enhancement Accelerator

Integrating Employee & Management Capabilities to Increase Per Employee Efficiency, Engagement and Profitability.

“There are three "organizational truisms" behind the Performance Enhancement Accelerator”

The first is that even the best organizations suffer from hidden waste and inefficiencies which impact productivity, profitability, and morale. The second is that the employees, individually and collectively, know how to improve all three. And the third is that most are very willing to work to do so if given the opportunity. In most organizations management intuitively recognizes the first two but struggles to find a process that leads to the third.

The Performance Enhancement Accelerator™ converts your teams into your partners in your quest to improve productivity, profitability, and morale.

The “PEA”™ is a simple but very effective 5 step process that has an immediate and sustainable impact on these 3 key dynamics.

It accomplishes this by engaging management and the workforce in a bi-directional conversation that results in your organization’s workforce revealing hidden issues impacting productivity, profitability, and morale. They then are encouraged to articulate viable solutions and are invited to become partners in devising and implementing effective solutions and changes.

This accomplished by engaging both management and the workforce in an innovative and enjoyable process that combines the power of the collective genius, wisdom, and energies of the workforce with the natural desire of everyone to work in a well run, highly efficient organization as they address problems that have been plaguing both sides.

The core of the Performance Enhancement Accelerator is a concise, anonymous, survey which allows the employees to identify issues that, in their view, negatively impact their ability to be productive. Once the information is gathered and assessed management and the employees are led through a facilitated process that compiles, vets and prioritizes the issues that, once resolved, will have the greatest impact.

The next step involves forming volunteer working groups made up primarily of the employees, with guidance from management, to identify creative solutions which strike a balance between employee desires and management’s vision of how to create a high-performance organization.

Once management begins seeing the immediate operational benefits of engaging the workforce as a vibrant “Knowledge Network”, and the employees begin experiencing the benefits of empowerment both sides become intrinsically motivated to continue these “conversations” on a regular basis.

Once you and your teams learn the Performance Enhancement Accelerator process it becomes a reusable tool that you can use and implement on your own to keep your organization running like a finely tuned machine, both operationally and organizationally.

Having worked with Jeff on projects for over 10 years there are two things that are critical to know.  First, ANYTIME I have a vital business issue that requires I resolve complex or competing dynamics amongst key individuals or teams, I immediately call Jeff!  Second, and I state this from many practical experiences working side-by-side, Jeff will ensure your people work more effectively together, achieving outcomes that they may not have thought were possible while also being mindful of C-Suite necessities – such as the impact on your bottom line.
