SMOKE & MIRRORS
Executive staff was uninspired and unmotivated with dysfunctional communication.
APEX program for 6 key executives to help them create new levels of awareness, and become a healthier, more functional team with proactive communication.
By day two, the group had grown to be more open, vulnerable, and willing to try new things. Their willingness to discuss and address important issues increased substantially, and this directly resulted in retaining a key employee who was about to leave the organization. Then because they no longer had to incur the “real” costs of replacing that employee, costs which can be calculated upwards of 300 percent of the employee’s salary (due to things like recruiting, onboarding, and training, in addition to lost productivity and negative effect on morale), their Return on Investment from this factor alone exceeded 300%.
The team enjoyed higher levels of:
- Awareness: After a week of implementing new awarenesses learned during their APEX journey, all members reported an increase in being proactive within their departments and working together as a team. They reported several times that they were looking forward to working with each other more.
- Clarity: The group gained more clarity on where their measures were not helping them execute and made the changes required to increase effectiveness.
- Communication: Every participant reported higher levels of communication, energy and increased engagement.
After only 3 days of “seeing” the progress experienced by this pilot program’s members, the Executive Director scheduled another APEX event was for the rest of the staff.
