Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
In a recent Gallup Survey, only about a quarter of America’s workforce operates within its area of strength. That’s bad news for the bottom line. A new video from the Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning addresses that issue—and a 10 percent discount for the “Cheetah Effective Series” offers solutions.
A Gallup survey found that significant numbers of workers are not reaching full potential; in fact, some actually undermine the positive impact of productive workers.
Michelle LaBrosse, Cheetah Learning’s founder and CEO, is featured in the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo9mHLUAMjA. The Chief Cheetah addresses an issue that haunts American businesses: The underutilization of talent and dissipation of energy in the workplace.
Gallup identified three categories of employees: 1) Those who are engaged and “work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company,” 2) those who are not engaged and could be described as “checked out” or “sleepwalking through their workday,” and 3) the “actively disengaged,” who aren’t just unhappy, but “undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.”
The daunting question facing businesses: How to get more employees engaged?
According to LaBrosse, there is an answer: “Learn how brand leaders create a team of superstars who pursue new opportunities at Cheetah speed and significantly increase their profitability. They create bottom-line improvements from the bottom up.”
LaBrosse says there are three fundamental skills needed to be fast, effective and adaptable. They are: 1) Finish What You Start, 2) Create Better Opportunities with Others, 3) Maintain a Level of Peak Performance.
“The Cheetah Effective Series” cultivates each of these skills:
Maintain a Level of Peak Performance – “Peak Performing Mind” (Cheetah's 10 PDU 603) teaches how to create an effective influence strategy to adopt practices that help keep individuals in peak performing condition.
Finish What You Start – “Effective Project Management” (Cheetah’s 20 PDU course, 601) teaches a participant how to finish projects.
Create Better Opportunities with Others – “Effective Negotiations” (Cheetah’s 20 PDU course, 602) teaches how to collaborate with co-workers based on an individual’s unique strengths.
