Work as a joy or drudgery? The level of energy and effectiveness – that is the "working spirit" of a company – is the factor that differentiates from dilettantes and adventurers to those companies that are successful in the long run. It is the factor that determines whether teams miss their targets, fail to produce outstanding results and exhaust themselves in the process or whether they perform brilliantly with focus and energy.
How can companies begin to channel their energy into specific actions and dynamics and use this to reach their objectives? This can be done by discovering the strengths of the individuals, teams and organisations themselves. It can also be done when the employees organise themselves and align themselves strategically with a joint objective in mind. It follows, that acting consistently becomes a fundamental factor for success. This generates a powerful drive to tackle tasks with commitment, to achieve objectives with ease and improve results measurably and with certainty.
With Working Spirit®, Sevgi Ates has developed a patented method for depicting and analysing performance energy flows in organisations. This analysis shows the interdependencies between people, systems and actions. It leads to the identification of the potential that would otherwise remain hidden. This potential is necessary for capitalising the inactive reserves where teams and organisations are concerned, this in order to make them generate values. The transformation can then begin. Instead of pressure from outside, strength comes from within.
Teams that raise their Working Spirit attain an increase in performance of up to 200 per cent. There is little time for anything unproductive, but a lot of time for important things, minimum bureaucracy, few explanations and no end of ideas, initiatives and consistent action. Everyone is not simply working in the company - they are working on it and above all for it. And all that with a focus on the big picture!
The Working Spirit® Quick Test is like a documented snapshot.
It shows the current state of the Working Spirit® in your department, team or company.
