Take pride: Building organizational success through people (Pre-conference)

The business case for pride at work is compelling. It delivers higher performance, builds brand reputation and customer loyalty. It increases innovation, quality, productivity and profit and reduces health and safety incidents and staff attrition. People who have pride in what they do are more successful and happier. They take more care, make better decisions and build better relationships.

TAKE PRIDE launches the PRIDE model, a philosophy and methodology that will create successful organizations through highly engaged people. This session will invite you to think differently about life at work, from the dual perspectives of the organization and the individual, and then apply some proven methods to achieve better collective and personal performance. It will appeal to those with executive authority or influence, and to individuals who wish to examine their own working style and achieve successful relationships at work.
