A "Systems" Approach
At Involvement Systems,
Inc., we ensure a "systems" approach is used to obtain both
short and long-term productivity improvements. This systems approach
may include assessing the organizational environment, understanding
and articulating the need for change, designing and implementing training,
skill building, changing organizational structures, executing new routines,
measuring and tracking results, and implementing reward systems.
Increased Employee Involvement
When employees get actively involved the work becomes more interesting,
rewarding and fun. At Involvement Systems, Inc., we value skill building,
not just training. We facilitate teamwork and experiential learning
while teaching from the perspective that applied creativity is a mixture
of both imagination and logic. Process skills are a cornerstone of our
philosophy for increasing productivity in individuals and groups. We
facilitate and encourage these skills in group participants, all the
while recognizing the value of each participant's point of view.
Our workshop topics include
the following: Creative Problem Solving, Facilitation Skills, TRIZ-The
Theory of Inventive Problem Solving, Team Formation and Team Building,
Feedback, Coaching, Career Development and Leadership. We have used
inventories such as Myers-Briggs, Firo-B, Kirton A-I, and the Strength
Deployment Inventory to help individuals and groups enhance their awareness
of how to utilize their strengths and be more effective.
