"I will send everyone on my team..."

"When I attended the first workshop by Dr. Wade, I wondered how someone could promise so much - especially for the price. I quickly realized that his mastery as a consultant, coach, HR executive, professor, and leadership expert combined to deliver an experience, not just another training event. I left with new abilities, a strategy to implement, and momentum to get it done. I will send everyone on my team to the next event."

-Andrew, VP Operations

Here Are a Few Solutions You'll Walk Away With...

  • Creating Purpose When employees don't understand WHAT you want or WHY you want it, they grow frustrated. However, when they understand that they are contributing to a bigger cause or a greater vision, they are motivated to help achieve those goals. We help you to set and communicate that vision.

  • Planning When you set goals at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels, you are better able to align your people, practices, and leadership efforts to execute more efficiently and effectively to achieve your goals. 

  • People Making your people a part of the performance solution generates momentum that drives performance at the organizational level. You can achieve more faster when you get everyone moving together as they can meet their goals while meeting yours. 

  • Performance The principles of performance are basic - and yet usually skipped. We share the fundamental steps to expectations, feedback and accountability that will help solve most of your performance problems and help you achieve peak performance in no time. 

  • Profitability Regardless of your organization type, you need to reach your goals. A business that doesn't make a profit is called a hobby...and performance will get you there. We'll connect the dots and show you how to get there faster. 

  • Progress Magic comes when you can perpetuate your results through continuous process improvement. This comes through ongoing performance efforts that achieve success.   

"I saw results the very next day"

"I decided to set aside my skepticism and implement the game plan I set during Dr. Wade's training session. I applied just one tool we had covered, applied it to one area of my business, and said 'what the heck?' I started with simply clarifying expectations and delivering feedback using the model we practiced. It worked. All I can say is that it worked. Employees responded well, engaged in conversation, and made changes. It changed everything."

-Stacie, Finance Director

Your Program

Chances are that you've used some kind of performance management or appraisal system. But has it worked? Maybe - maybe not. Regardless, chances are it could have been improved.

This workshop takes your current experience with performance (or no experience) and helps you to understand how to enhance your outcomes immediately using the 6P model. We focus on enhancing the following areas to achieve success:

  • Purpose: When everyone understands and aligns with the reason why you are doing what you do, it's easier to motivate everyone to achieve your goals.

  • Planning: Failing to plan is planning to fail - so we give you the tools to do it right that helps you to expedite your success.

  • People: Getting your people aligned with organizational goals accelerates the achievement of your goals.

  • Performance: Applying principles of effective performance management can help you achieve more in less time - as individuals, teams, and the organization.

  • Profitability (outcomes): No matter your organization type, you need results. We teach you how to get there faster.

  • Progress: Continuous process improvement helps you to progress forward and increase your outcomes year after year.

In the end, you gain new tools, skills, and a game plan that is ready to implement the day after you get back from training. The ROI is pretty fast on the investment of your day.

So...Why the Value Pricing if You Offer So Much?

The first question we get when we roll out a new program is - "How do you offer a program like this at such a low price? It's worth at least 10x that amount!" We know, and we will eventually get there. However, even though we have taught performance for many years, this is the first time we have packaged it this way. 

We are hoping to gain your feedback. exchange for your feedback, we are offering this at an introductory price. By offering this at a price that basically covers our costs, we can gain your insights to help us improve the course for the future.  

As with any course, we know you'll get the value you expect. If not, we'll make it right. However, we are confident you will gain new insights, see immediate results, and get the gains in profits and performance you expect.
