Description

The Business Parables Program is an innovative program that helps participants get the big picture through short stories....

Business leaders often complain about lack of accountability, drive and ownership in their teams. While these are grave issues, they could very well be symptoms of an even bigger malaise.

“The bulk of employees worldwide -- 63% -- are not engaged, meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organizational goals or outcomes. Another 24% are actively disengaged, indicating they are unhappy and unproductive at work” Gallup ‘State of the Global Workplace’ study conducted across 142 countries

So, how do we get employees engaged?

“…one of the stronger engagement drivers is a desire for self-development. But the real game changer is…..to feel a sense of belonging…” State of Human Capital 2012 – McKinsey Conference Board

“skill development, while important, may not be enough….there is need to engage employees in a way that nurtures a sense of belonging….provides them a clear idea of ‘the big picture’ and how they fit into the ‘context’..” Talent Management Experts

“…based on my short stories book, The Business Parables Program is an innovative attempt to simplify business with the help of intriguing stories. Five easy-toread short stories allow everyone to explore the big picture…” Venugopal Gupta, Author & Program Host
