Engaging Hearts and Minds

Business Challenge

Smart Business Cover Story
Click here to see how we helped this client build an engaging culture while they experienced 100% annualized growth for 5 straight years.

Did you know that 83% of U.S. gross domestic product comes from services or information which are created and delivered by people?

The challenge for leaders is revealed in a Gallup poll showing that only 26% of U.S. employees are fully engaged at any time. On the other end of the spectrum, 19% of employees are actively disengaged, meaning they intentionally act in ways that negatively impact their organizations. The annual cost nationwide to employ this actively disengaged group exceeds $450 billion.

Your people – and the performance they deliver – are the defining competitive advantage for your organization.

Your leaders are the key to engaging employees’ minds and hearts so they deliver value for your organization.

The Passionate Performance leadership model has been translated into 9 languages and applied worldwide since 2004.

Passionate Performance provides a compelling formula for managers, addressing six basic employee needs. In Asia, many senior managers would agree that they should be providing these basic needs, but in reality, they are easily overlooked. The 180 degree assessment is a great wake up for managers. It provides enough “umph” for managers to make a change and focus on providing these basic needs.Passionate Performance will contribute in our efforts in tightening our consumer connection to our brands because employees will be more engaged and focused on making the experience memorable.

Lee’s presentation on Passionate Performance was probably the best leadership presentation I have seen.

Lee challenged us to move the needle just by one; I think my needle went up by two!

Lee really motivated me to become a better leader regardless of where I am. His encouraging words to accept where I am an focus on improving was really inspirational!

Lee Colan had a powerful message for becoming a leader, it takes passion!

Lee was a fantastic presenter and inspired me countless times as we discussed the need to engage a person’s heart and mind to obtain Passionate Performance.

Lee’s session on Passionate Performance was absolutely amazing. Moving forward I will take the tools that Lee provided and incorporate them in my day to day activities. I’m still counting yellow cars.
