Collaborative Coaching

A Happy Employee Is A Productive Employee

The success of any organization is directly tied to the engagement, productivity, and retention of it's employees.

Is the culture of your organization helping or hurting your bottom line?


of employee absences can be tracked to psychological problems that are due to job stress


of employees state they are not engaged at their job


believe employees have more on the job stress than a generation ago


cost of unanticipated absenteeism per worker, per year

You know what it feels like to be stressed.  Regardless of the source of stress, we all tend to respond in a very similar way.....headaches, poor sleep, changes in eating habits, loss of concentration, lack of motivation, difficulty with thought process, loss of memory and poor decision making.


Now imagine that 86% of your employees spend their work day with these symptoms of stress. 


How productive do you think they are? 


How long do you think they will continue to work there?

Workplace stress and poor collaboration result in:

  • increased tension and conflict among staff

  • blaming between generations/team silos

  • presenteeism

  • absenteeism

  • decreased productivity

  • increased medical, pharmacy, mental health and EAP costs

  • increased disability claims

  • higher turnover

  • costs associated with hiring, training, temporary staff, etc.

An organization that values collaboration creates a culture where managers and employees are encouraged to work together to make better use of resources, knowledge, time and effort.

A Collaborative Culture will respectfully address the differing expectations and needs of Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials (and incoming Gen Z). Addressing the unique needs of your employees allows them to feel understood, validated, appreciated and supported, resulting in a healthy and thriving workplace.
