Remember when quality became the focal point for improving performance?
When Dr. W. Edwards Deming introduced this concept, he literally changed the way the world thought about leadership, management and innovation. His approach was so revered the New York Times labeled him “the high prophet of quality” and US News & World Report said Deming was “One of the Nine Hidden Turning Points in World History.”
Dr. Deming’s principles for transforming business effectiveness begin with individual transformation. He understood a transformed person brings new meaning to life, events and interactions with others – both in and outside the work environment.
It’s this concept that led to PRINT®.
Inspired by one-on-one research with Dr. Deming, Dr. Paul Hertz developed PRINT as the only available method for revealing the core motivations that drive people’s actions.
You see, people rarely perform close to their highest capacity. And, most often, performance lags without an understanding of what’s preventing productivity.
You’ve seen the effects. They, of course, vary by industry:
- Lost profitability
- Ineffective leadership
- Bad communication
- Slow self-development
- Trouble adapting to change
- Limited motivation
- Poor employee engagement
- Unhappy customers
- High employee turnover
- Lack of innovation
Assessments such as Kolbe, Myers-Briggs, MAPP, DISC and StrengthsFinder may be able to pointpoint these problems.
BUT…PRINT® is the next step that fixes them by addressing the root cause of most destructive forces – or what we refer to as Unconscious Motivators®.
Simply put, the behavior detracting from your organization’s improvement initiatives is instinctive. Trying to change your organization without satisfying each person’s internal tendencies (or hidden needs) only leads to failed attempts and frustration.
So what causes this dysfunctional behavior – and how can you correct it?
That’s what our customized tools, training, and one-on-one and team coaching uncovers. Using our proprietary PRINT methodology, we help you …
- Recruit and retain excellent talent,
- Develop exceptional leaders,
- Build high-performance teams, and
- Create an awe-inspiring workforce.
Only after uncovering each person’s set of Best Self (positive) behaviors, Shadow (not-so-positive) behaviors and Triggers (hot buttons) can you develop strategies that boost positive tendencies, while eliminating the negative ones.
