To stand out from your competitors, your people require understanding and involvement in the company mission, vision and values. However, getting your people to live by the company values is a challenge regularly faced by many organizations. The answer is Speak Up, Speak Out, where delegates explore and take ownership of company values and critical success factors. A series of thought-provoking statements is tabled for discussion, for example: “Must be a team player”, “Stop at nothing to win”, or “Not just a trait but a lifestyle”.
Participants indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with the statements and express the reasons for their opinions. This generates a discussion which each team member takes a turn at leading, ensuring that everyone has a voice.
Speak Up Speak Out challenges your team to instill a practical application of your corporate values, and deliver an understanding of how to utilize and implement the values in everyday work situations. Our highly interactive and engaging approach has consequences far beyond the conference room, creating an excellent reference point to guide actions back in the workplace.
