The workforce today is facing ever increasing demands for higher productivity, usually at the severe cost of decreasing quality of work life and private life. Inhibited by limiting beliefs, decreasing motivation and the burden of past negative experiences, many employees have a hard time coping, even with their normal, daily challenges. Motivational speakers come and go, people are "high" for a week or so, but then they dive back into despair.
This book addresses this problem, namely how to acheive higher productivity without sacrificing the quality of work life or private life. It also describes how this problem can be solved by utilizing Neuro-Linguistic Programming interventions. The research, which this book is based on, proves that lasting positive changes can be induced in a short period of time, and that a significant increase in work life quality has a profound influence on productivity.
This ground-breaking book contains descriptions of the research, the processes utilized, and the results achieved in an easy to read format.
