Accelerating Peak Performance
Never has an economy relied so heavily on its employees as a competitive advantage as the United States in the 21st century. The organizations that will succeed are the ones that inspire their employees to bring their best to work on a daily basis and reach their peak performance potential.
Organizations play a role in creating an environment where peak performance is possible. Leaders are critical drivers in the peak performance equation. Finally, each employee has a decision to make – whether to bring their best to work or to bring something less.
In this presentation, Don MacPherson will discuss the five people practices organizations need to have in place to make peak performance possible. He will talk about how leaders – both direct managers and senior leaders – can leverage the five common drivers of employee engagement. Lastly, he will address an issue that far too few employees understand…their role in accepting that work is an imperfect place. When we all accept that, we take a step toward success. Each person has an incredible amount of control over the energy, attitude, and effort they bring to work…they just forget they have that control. A reminder is in order. That energy, attitude, and effort will ultimately be their work legacy – a legacy that is accumulated over 30 or 40 years.
When the organization, leadership, and employees accept and execute on these responsibilities, peak performance is bound to follow.
Entrepreneur, traveler, athlete, and speaker are all labels that can be applied to Don MacPherson, but the label he is most proud to be called is mentor. In 1999, Don and his two partners each invested $1,000 to start Modern Survey. From there they have grown it into a multi-million dollar company serving hundreds of organizations. In his lifetime, Don has visited all 50 U.S. states and 59 countries around the world. One of those countries is Germany where Don played basketball in the 1990s. Presenting on the topics of employees engagement and the evolving global nature of business, Don has become a popular speaker among human resources organizations and companies interested in unlocking their employees’ performance potential.
Don has a rich work history that extends back 39 years when he got his first job delivering a weekly newspaper as a six-year-old. He went on to work delivering pizzas, retail, as a teaching assistant, on an assembly line, in a warehouse, and in financial services. His job working in an iron ore mine taught him that work is an imperfect place. Playing basketball in Europe turned him into a global citizen. And his time at Modern Survey has given him the opportunity to work with and learn from scores of organizations interested in developing their people into the best possible employees they can be.
During his 15 years as a mentor through Big Brothers/Big Sisters, he learned the powerful lessons of how recognizing, developing and filling his two Little Brothers with a sense of personal accomplishment were the keys to motivating them to become extraordinary.
Don has been profiled by best-selling authors Dan Pink and Harvey Mackay.
