A highly motivated, competent work force is vital to an organization's success. Creating Productive Organizations is an interactive manual that challenges and encourages readers to assess and develop a clear vision of their areas of competence and interest in order to enhance productivity.

Basic, common sense information about people, jobs, and the workplace is presented using simple descriptions, methods, contemporary examples and illustrations. Readers are skillfully guided through the process of identifying and defining their skills, abilities, beliefs, values, work methods, knowledge, and strengths. Step-by-step guidelines enable readers to evaluate and more closely match their talents, goals, and visions with current and future demands of the constantly changing workplace.

Written for supervisors, managers, leaders, mentors, work teams members, academicians, students, and anyone striving to learn more about themselves in order to increase job satisfaction and overall performance. Creating Productive Organizations is an excellent stand-alone resource-however, the facilitator's guide is recommended for industry training or classroom use.

Facilitator's Guide

The facilitator's guide is a multilevel, experiential teaching tool that provides activities, inventories, questionnaires, surveys and discussion resources for individual and group use. Its content follows the same format as the manual and is designed to supplement and reinforce material presented in each chapter.
