Workplace Jazz – Coming Soon

Workplace Jazz – Coming Soon

Workplace Jazz teaches the strategies and steps professionals need to emotionally connect with their teams and execute for optimum results. According to McKinsey, “Research shows that hurtful workplace behavior can depress performance, increase employee turnover, and even mar customer relationships. And that Workplace relationships may be fraying as fewer employees work in the office and feel more isolated and less respected.”

The gap between workforce engagement and workplace productivity is widening. In a study conducted by Kronos and Future Workplace, “The biggest threat to building an engaged workforce in 2017 is employee burnout. The newest study in the Employee Engagement Series conducted by Kronos Incorporated and Future Workplace® found 95 percent of human resource leaders admit employee burnout is sabotaging workforce retention, yet there is no obvious solution on the horizon.” When teams are emotionally connected and supportive, burnout is reduced, and engagement goes up.

What should leaders do to address this emotional burnout? Should companies keep implementing culture improvement processes and procedures that do not address the emotional connection that teams need? Should they just accept the status quo and try to keep moving forward?

Workplace Jazz offers a step by step process enhanced with stories, research, mini case studies, metaphors and a strategic blueprint for developing emotionally connected teams based on the author’s experiences as a professional musician and certified business consultant. The author will also include stories from a highly skilled set of guest contributors who are both musicians and some well-known business authors and consultants.

Emotionally Connected teams are critical to your workplace because they enable your staff to work well under pressure, they are less defensive, are more open to feedback, and they want to understand each other and are more supportive. Workplace Jazz offers insights into how to help your teams grow in the area of Emotional Intelligence and experience the connections that professional musicians achieve when they’re performing.
