Most Loved WorkPlace

Learn the factors that make a Most Loved Workplace. After studying over 300 organizations, & 12 different factors that make a most loved or most hated workplace, Louis Carter dentified the keys to having a workplace where everyone truly wants to produce business results. The results of this study sometimes contradict what popular & more traditional engagement, and best places to work have provided. As it turns out, having a best friend at work, or liking your boss/manager is not the way to an employee’s inner psyche to perform. There are much different factors that make them want to produce major results.

Deep Connect

Workshop and Keynote Offerings 3

People thrive on deep human connection. When given the chance to connect in-person, on a deep emotional, spiritual, and heart-centered level,  transformation happens – and leaders move from being average to extraordinary.  Especially in times of conflict, it is natural for anyone to become “highjacked” with emotions.

Advanced neurobiological research indicates that the more we come together toward common objectives and desires, the greater our ability to heal ourselves and our communities. In this 3-5 day workshop, you will be brought through an intensive awareness of yourself, how you work within community, and with each other. And, you will create an ecumenical document that transforms the way you and your colleagues believe the world should work.

During this workshop you will gain:

1. A deeper awareness of your own personal leadership potential

2. Stronger competency to connect to others on a personal level

3. Create more meaningful relationships with those in the workshop and in your life

4. Develop an actual working document that the group can choose to publish in everyone’s name.
