Includes: 5 Personal & Employee Development Planners,
and Facilitator Guide.
The Work Satisfaction and Renewal Series, consisting of the Personal Development Planner and the Employee Development Planner for Managers, helps employees - with or without their managers - to create a customized development plan that will set the direction for their professional growth.
Managers often mistakenly assume that high performing workers are satisfied. But this is not always the case! Some high performers can continue to deliver results despite the fact that they are not deriving personal satisfaction from the work.
An individual's satisfaction with work is a product of both an ability to perform the work and an inherent motivation to do it. While the ultimate responsibility rests with employees, supporting their development is one of the most important contributions managers can make towards satisfying and retaining them in the long run.
Personal Development Planner
The Personal Development Planner provides participants with a snapshot of their current work satisfaction level by assessing competence and motivation levels. The planner then leads them through a strategy and planning process that allows them to take charge of their own work satisfaction.
Employee Development Planner for Managers
Intended as a companion tool to the Personal Development Planner, the Employee Development Planner for Managers gives managers a strategy for supporting, motivating, and ultimately retaining their employees through feedback, coaching, and on-the-job development.
The comprehensive guide includes the Motivation and Competence Grid, extensive descriptions of the four development profiles, administration guidelines, sample training designs, transparency and handout masters, and more.
Use the Work Satisfaction and Renewal Series to:
Establish a new approach to employee development.
Impart management skills training in developing people.
Provide employees with a self-empowering process to manage their own careers.
Create and develop an employee retention program.
Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. Whether spoken or unspoken, met or unmet, expectations have a powerful impact on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and play a key role in driving our attitudes. Research shows that people who have clearly
defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.
