The Bright Eyed Organisation

Creating a “Bright-Eyed,” Engaged Culture. (1 Day).

Program Overview

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery

You have seen them many times – the “Bright-Eyed,” the “Glazed-Eyed,” and the “Beady-Eyed” employees.

Which of these three styles dominate your corporate culture? What impact does this have on productivity, customer service, morale, and even profitability? A recent Gallup survey found that 30% of employees across multiple industries are engaged, 52% are not engaged, and 18% are actively disengaged.

Enlightened leaders pay careful attention to shaping their corporate culture and engaging employees to create and sustain the “Bright-Eyed” experience. It’s good for the employees, good for the business, and good for the bottom line. 

Learning Outcomes

This workshop actively engages participants in exploration of the “6 Strategies to Create and Sustain a Bright Eyed Culture:”. Please refer to course content.

We cannot afford to have disengaged or actively disengaged people influencing our organisational culture. Leaders must act to create a culture that fosters employee engagement — a win for the company and a win for the employees. 

Training Methodology

The programme is fully interactive and uses a variety of methods to engage participants, maintain interest and enhance learning.

Programme delivery includes instructor led lectures, real life exercises, case study reviews, role playing scenarios and group discussions using an integrated highly participative learning approach.
