It’s an open secret that a person’s behavior at work as an individual can impact their work performance, interaction with other team members, and ultimately the team’s results. Thus, it is important to have a strong culture within an organisation, by developing high performing employees with sound behavioral attitudes.

 

This workshop is designed to increase employee performance, commitment, confidence, teamwork and involvement towards achieving goals. Participants will be able to learn and acquire the required tools and skills to work as an individual as well as a team to improve overall work satisfaction, performance and results.

 

Through this workshop, participants would be involved in numerous activities to experience and understand how individual behaviors can impact work performance and how with sound behavioral development can lead to a sound culture of excellence.

Here is what the previous participants had to say:

“Able to identify differences that exists among people in work situations and how I should resolve it towards achieving excellence in my career.” Abdul Gaffar, Officer, Regional Commercial Bank.

“We moved away from the static hierarchical structure. Experiencing Grid helped our managers a lot, especially through the self-reflection and feedback process.” Dietrich Sturm, HR Director, Bosch Germany.

“My experience in China and Russia shows me that people everywhere have the same needs and attitudes toward the values of openness, critique, advocacy and integrity. The Grid is a truly international concept to help people to work toward these values and attain them.” Richard Illek, General Manager, Pepsico China Ltd.

Why is developing a culture of excellence important?

  • To maintain an organization’s image as employees are the face of a business and the public forms an opinion of the company based on employees’ conduct. The culture impacts everyone’s conduct from the leadership down to their front liners.

 

  • Inappropriate behavior at the office often creates work disruptions, distracting other employees and interrupting their workflow. This lost time is expensive for the employer as well as the individual. A Harvard Business Review article reported that researchers at Michigan State University found that workplace incivility costs employers approximately $14,000 per employee due to loss of productivity and work time.

 

  • Employees who behave inappropriately often miss opportunities for learning, promotions and synergistic contributions towards organizational results.

This workshop will be conducted by Mohd. Faizal Dato’ Mohd Din, the Regional Managing Partner from Grid International Sdn Bhd. Grid is a world authority on human behavior in organizations and a leader in developing outstanding relationships within an organisation that drive exceptional performance.  Over the past 37 years, Grid International Sdn Bhd has supported the development of over 80 organizations within this region including 21 financial institutions.
