Corporate Small Group Book Study

I'd like to share with you the advantages of, and the process of implementing a small group culture shift from my company, Inspiring Connection. This applies to authors of corporate improvement books, trainers, developers, and the companies they serve.

Working with Inspiring Connection would be a powerful tool for your company to create a truly comprehensive culture shift at all levels of the company in addition to a company's prime movers that consultants lead and train in company strategy.

Programs created by Inspiring Connection address the entire company when integrating new information and corporate culture by including all employees in small group discussions that are not curriculum based. This augments the original training for top executives conducted by the consultant.

All too frequently, attempts at culture shift falls to the wayside when there is resistance from the employees who were not initially engaged in the discussion and training. If they are not invested, they are less likely to act. This could result in minimal impact on the client company in the long run, and the culture shift is sometimes abandoned. Inspiring Connection can engage all levels of a company to empower and embrace the program, resulting in;
  • 90% reduction in the time required for company wide buy in
  • 80% to 95% cost savings over traditional training and development methods (for mid-level and front line staff)
  • Develop peer respect and inter-departmental trust
  • 100% accuracy of information dissemination (nothing is lost in the translation from top down)
  • 100% active participation and engagement for all relevant employees in concepts and practices
  • Create a common knowledge base for all employees
I am happy to work with companies and consultants to customize a program for their needs. The initial contact would include:
  • An evaluation of the company's goals and implementation needs
  • A description of how I would address their needs
  • Exploration of how best to customize the program as necessary
After a contract is agreed to, a licensing agreement and contract is signed.
Materials and manual are delivered in digital format.
Continued consulting to assist with implementation (up to 2 hours) will be included.
Exit evaluation surveys for participants will be compiled and reported to the company.

This will assist any consultant by compressing the timeline of impact.

I am very passionate about the programs that I create and the impact they have on a community. I believe in the power and wisdom that people find in speaking, and the connection and respect they develop hearing their colleagues.
