Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Encore Performance Consulting, LLC, a boutique firm that specializes in helping businesses play to their strengths, will be featured at the Locals Unplugged! breakfast meeting on February 9, 2012 at the Dupont Business Incubator. The discussion will focus on how effective communication leads to the formation of well-balanced teams, customer advocates, and exceptional performance.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to help entrepreneurs look at their businesses in a new way,” says Michel Heitstuman, CEO. “While there are a lot of resources designed to teach executives how to improve leadership skills, optimize systems, or write business plans, these resources leave out the single most critical success factor: People. Assuming your company fills a market need, the ability to attract, motivate, and retain an unbeatable team is the secret sauce that enables companies of all sizes to develop a passionate customer following and achieve breakthrough results.”
Research conducted by Marcus Buckingham and the Gallup Organization reveals that less than 20% of people play to their strengths while at work. This has devastating consequences on the motivation levels of the American work force. Disengagement leads to low levels of productivity and quality — and wastes billions of dollars in the process. Yet, placing employees in positions that fit their individual strengths is not enough to ensure success. The quality of communication, interpersonal relationships, organizational design, and systems all play a role in determining whether the sum is more than the parts.
