ARE YOUR EMPLOYEES ENGAGED ENOUGH?

OUR WORKFORCE IS CHANGING

  • DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

    A strong diversity and inclusion strategy has become a business key for success. Tomorrow’s workforce will be even more diverse than today’s. Empathy, assertive communication, and adaptability are necessary skills for everyone to develop. 

  • PROLONGED WORKING LIFE

    The average retirement age has increased as workers are staying in the labour force longer. Taking care of the employees' wellbeing to sustain their performance in the long-run is a must. The need for inner motivation increases constantly over time.

  • EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE

    EI, Leadership, Growth Mindset and Social Influence are among the top key skills for the future workplace performance. Employee Experience Desing is the modern tool of workforce empowerment - higher productivity through better EEX.

  • GENERATION GAP

    We are managing the most multigenerational workforce than ever before. Millennials believe employers are lacking in developing skills including EI, which is also needed to bridge the Generation Gap in the workplace.

  • INTERNAL MOTIVATION

    People's behavior at work are more driven by internal motivation rather than external motivation.  80% of employees with poor manager relationships are disengaged, while 50% of former employees left to get away from their manager.

Today's most effective managers excel at the people skills - those who show empathy, energize the team, and inspire those who follow them. To become such a leader, you need to be able to understand the complex human needs and patterns of influence, values, emotions, and power up intrinsic motivation.

ARMELA TOTAJ

Founder of Cherish Your Work

For 13 years, I belonged to the corporate world and worked in complex and matrix companies with an international environment and different leadership styles. During this journey, I have been studying Organizational Behaviour, Human Resources & Operations Management, Total Quality Management, Multicultural Communication, User Experience, Leadership, and Service Design. While using design thinking to bring transformation initiatives across the Group´s reporting process for a multinational corporation, I learned about the difference it made to business when team leaders focused not simply on strategic goals but also on the human factor enabling those goals to be achieved. Companies place a great deal of attention to their customers - understanding people`s needs to offer products that increase customer satisfaction. We should not forget that those who are designing and selling these products are people too – all with different personalities, needs, and drives. The human-centered leaders know what it takes to tap into human potential - they have a natural understanding of human emotions and what behaviors drive high performance. Cherish Your Work is a business that helps corporate executives to boost business success by developing human-centered leadership skills of emotional intelligence and emotional experience design.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

TO UPSKILL YOUR LEADING TEAM

USING DESIGN THINKING AS A LEADER by developing skills of emotional intelligence, learn methods and tools of experience design, and embody a coherent style of leadership.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

While climbing the corporate ladder, a high Intelligence Quotient is not enough to succeed - a high Emotional Quotient becomes a must. What you think is how you feel, what you become, and how you behave. Emotional Intelligence is the driving force behind every success story, and also behind every failure of leading oneself and others. Learn more here.

EXPERIENCE DESIGN

Experience is the process of directly perceiving reality. What sets the experience satisfaction is the gap between expectations and reality; when those match then people feel content, happy, innovative, and empowered. Experience design is the knowledge needed to craft those experiences for employees where work motivation is generated. Learn more here.

COHERENT LEADERSHIP 

Research in human physiology is revealing that when the heart and brain work together, we enter a coherent state that can lead to a more effective and authentic leadership style for the business. Cultivating a coherent leadership culture means more collaborative, productive, and innovative teams working together to achieve great results. Learn more here.
