Employee Engagement Training | Lyons & Associates

By: K. Lyons & Associates  09-12-2011

Employee engagement training initiatives have been around for a long time. Chances are you’ve participated in formal and informal employee engagement programs in the past. They’re popular because most managers and owners see the potential value of having employees more engaged in the business. The benefits of these programs if implemented well extend to everyone involved and so we support the concept.

Despite the popularity of employee engagement training it’s very unusual to see an employee engagement initiative that focuses on how to make the business more profitable. This seems somewhat ironic when you consider the primary purpose of a business is to make money. It seems even more unusual when you consider that most organizations have never provided any coaching or training around how everyday decisions impact profits. As a consequence most employees have a very limited knowledge and skill level in this area.

Therefore employee engagement training that’s simple and easy to implement and focuses on growing the business profitably has tremendous upside and very little downside risk.  The challenge is to make it simple, easy and part of the culture rather than a time consuming initiative that is characterized by formality and meetings. We’ve seen countless examples where employees literally start to get more engaged after one day of working with them.

To learn more about our approach to employee engagement training and find out how you can implement these concepts in a simple efficient manner then purchase our DVD. Good luck and we look forward to hearing about your success stories.

The one percent difference DVD program consists of the following four modules:

If it’s possible to improve your margins by even just 1%, the difference between your current margin levels and potential margins could result in significant unrealized profit. Training and more specifically this module will give you the focus and show you how to implement these principles in the near term without consuming a lot of time.


Competitive Pricing Strategy Training - Business Volume

Sales representatives often make price concessions to attract more volume from customers and if they don’t, customers usually ask for, or demand a lower price at certain volume levels. With the right type of training you might also discover that from a profit perspective you might be better off by raising your prices and giving up some volume in the process.


Pricing Optimization Strategies - Product Pricing Strategies Course

Price optimization strategies and decisions are often the most important decisions a business makes since small changes to pricing usually have more impact on the bottom line than any other decision. Achieving margin gains is one of the most common outcomes our customers experience and we hope you’ll watch the videos and apply the principles to your own organization.


DVD - The 1% Difference

In the past we’ve always worked onsite with our clients and now for the first time you can experience firsthand many of the tips and techniques we share with our clients.


Business Financing Books - The 1% Difference

Purchasing affects costs of goods sold; managers, supervisors and employees affect expenses; other employees affect the utilization of assets such as inventory, receivables and fixed assets; and everyone affects productivity. In many businesses, sales representatives have the greatest influence on the financial success of the business since their decisions directly affect one of the most important lines on the income statement, the sales line.


Products | Lyons & Associates

At Lyons & Associates business acumen training is more about understanding how to effect the income statement, balance sheet or cash flow statement rather than focussing on how to read it. Managers and employees walk out of a room knowing a little more about business but often don’t know how those principles specifically relate to the decisions they make every day.
