“When you are clear, what you choose to have show up in your life will, and only to the extent you are clear.”
—Chris Attwood and Janet Bray Attwood

Clarity, expressed with elegant simplicity, ignites passion. Passion is the foundation of success.

How can we inspire our employees to be committed to our purpose and passionate about delivering value to our customers and clients?

A company’s purpose is defined by the Unique Contribution it delivers to customers, clients, employees, shareholders, and the world at large. Companies exist to enrich each of these specific entities.

The 5–10 things that matter most, and which excite, inspire, and motivate the company’s staff to deliver that Unique Contribution, are the Company’s Passions.

Every individual has a unique purpose and unique passions. When individual purpose and passion is aligned with corporate purpose and passion, magic happens. Employees are engaged, productivity soars and profitability is maximized.

How do we make our Company Passions a part of day-to-day decision-making?

What we do

We make your company’s Unique Contribution and passions living, breathing, vibrant parts of your everyday work life. Using the proprietary Passion Test process we help you define or re-express your Company’s 5-10 Passions—those things that are most important for you to deliver your company’s Unique Contribution. Out of this process emerges a statement of that Unique Contribution, expressed with elegant simplicity. And then we support you in creating a Culture Action Plan (CAP) that ensures these Company Passions become the basis of decision-making at every level of your organization.

Benefits

  • Alignment between employee passions and corporate passions leads to active engagement—engagement increases productivity, innovation, team cooperation, retention and profitability

ASAP Engagement—Drive the Passion

Advanced Solutions for Activating Passionate Engagement

“Whenever you are faced with a choice, a decision, or an opportunity, choose in favor of your passions.”
—Chris Attwood and Janet Bray Attwood

When the corporate mission becomes personal, employees become engaged.

Our company has a clear mission and we’ve identified our company passions. How do we engage our employees to fulfill them?

A company mission statement and operating principles that stay on the wall have limited value. These statements become valuable when employees take ownership of them.

The secret is to connect the corporate mission to individual employee work passions, to the things that the employee cares most deeply about.

How do we maximize our productivity, retention and ability to innovate?

What we do

Our Drive the Passion program is a customized solution for mid to large-sized companies that have already defined their Unique Contribution and core operating principles. The process is fully scalable. Starting with the areas of your company that are your core differentiators, each group, division, department and team can identify their Unique Contribution and departmental Passions, as they relate to those of the company. Then the process aligns team members with those values. We support you in creating a Culture Action Plan (CAP) for each area of your company to drive passion into every corner of your organization and train your own trainers to deliver The Passion Test for Business.

Benefits

  • Passion Test training ignites passion and engagement among your staff
  • Culture Action Plan provides clear responsibilities and timetables for accountability
