Group Process: Work Team Development Using a Survey - AKA - Turning Employee Surveys into Morale Boosting Events

Please note this training is at the 2100 building!

Kurt Lewin, the founder of modern Organization Development, created Action Research. The process you will learn here is derived from Kurt Lewin and can be used with any survey. Many workplaces conduct an annual employee survey. Such surveys can increase or decrease morale. Decreases often happen rapidly. What most don't realize is that the survey does not matter. What does matter is the group process used to transform the survey in to action. 

This training will provide you with a process that ensures maximum positive benefit from any survey. Most survey companies are led by statistics experts rather than Applied Behavioral Scientists (ABS). There is a core ABS process that is simple and repeatable which practitioners can use to turn survey data into action.

Participants will discover how to use surveys in a way that does not demoralize the organization and instead does the opposite while addressing real work place issues

At the end of the presentation, the participants will: 

  • Learn an 11 step process to translate any survey data into action.
  • Raise awareness of common traps when using surveys.
  • Utilize a 12 question workplace questionnaire.

This training is limited to 20 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!
