Investing in Your Cultural Capital

Your most important asset is your people and by investing in their education, growth, well being and emerging potential, the ROI is evident. Happier people translate into happier finances and the cost of training, coaching and development pales in comparison to the cost of turnover (1.5 to 3 times salary).


Disruptive Questioning:

  1. Are you courageous enough to create a work climate where your people actually thrive or just survive?
  2. Is your organization “Great in the Making” by the investment in a sustainable future through the care and feeding of your workforce?
  3. And if you are moving from “Good to Great”, are you willing to commit to moving to something even more significant as your Legacy: From Great to the Greater Good©?

“The science of management has traditionally fostered the belief that managers are supposed to manage their people to generate high productivity for higher profit. While not against productivity and profit, Jeff Patnaude believes in another concept of management: Good and effective management begins with managing the business of ourselves first. Only then can we move to the next challenge, that of managing the environment where others can be successful in their work.” (Excerpt from: HUMANagement, The Human Element, Jeffrey Patnaude, 1999).
