The 45-Day Challenge:
The “45-Day Challenge” is a superb speech for companies that want to show appreciation for their employees and motivate them to continue growing for the following term, quarter, or year. The speech covers the controversial hurdles employees endure on a daily basis in a humorous fashion, and focus on why people should receive accolades in all levels of an organization. Dr. Luke then creates a challenging game for the audience to enhance quality productivity in the future. This speech has extremely long lasting results and will not be forgotten the following day. It sticks.
Exposure: Training your critical people how to program their mind-set for optimal performance.
This entertaining and but practical speech will develop small company cohesiveness within large corporation setting. Dr. Luke has worked as a Sr. Business Analyst investigating corporate fraud and is a former United States Federal Treasury Revenue Officer. Through her years working in the industry, she has learned that an area in fraud prevention that has lacked proper attention has been instilling a mind-set in employees to be sensitive to potential wrongdoing. This training will open organizations to the proposition that personal accountability can produce positive growth for a company.
The Powerhouse Boost
The Powerhouse Boost course is designed to precede existing corporate training. Participants will develop a personal growth plan, apply the fundamentals of balancing a career with family, and implement a strategy for premium career satisfaction. Not all employees are ready to effectively apply the skills and talents you hired them for. Some employees are highly distracted in their personal lives, some don’t know how to visualize their own success within the corporate structure, and some employees are so turned on that they may burn out quickly. This course will help all employees to identify the critical questions and receive cogent answers to these distractors and be much better prepared for the higher level of learning you require of them. As a bonus, your corporate leaders will collect data from an independent source that can be used for future corporate development. The Powerhouse Boost is a four-hour course (Day 1). Are your employees really ready to go full speed ahead?
How Melissa Can Help
Your new hires and seasoned employees alike will know how to be truly happier at their jobs, as measured by improved retention rates. Employees at all levels will know how to apply the fundamentals of balancing a career with family. They will be more ready to focus, learn, implement, innovate and create, measured by increased employee interaction during corporate training. This course demonstrates your corporation’s attention to employee satisfaction.
Melissa will help employees identify the importance of their career within the organization from an “outsider’s” perspective.
