Throughout the event we talked on differente aspects that, according to our particular philosophy, involve the individual and his/her capacity for commitment.

It is common that, in relation to the challenges faced by companies, the following conditions are considered the most relevant facts: increasing performance and productivity while attracting and retaining talent. Circumstances that we synthesize in a single concept: commitment.

Performance and productivity only implies improvement when they are faced with compromised performance.  The same one that makes it possible for talent to remain expectant to give the best of itself.

Should I summarize in a single sentence the essence of the seminar, this would be: you can buy their hands and their strength, never their mind and heart.

A friendly relationship (the heart); the style, respectful and enthusiastic of the ideas of each individual (the mind); the processes, information and appropriate incentives (the body); in tune with an environment that manifests direction and criteria (the sense). All of them arise as the essential ingredients of an organization so that, if motivation is present in the individual, it is reflected in a committed way.

We are talking about:

  1. organizational excellence: emotional and ethical bases of commitment;
  2. the cost associated with the introduction of incentives of an extrinsic nature;
  3. the different types of human performance: effective, efficient, and relational;
  4. the end of discipline as a management tool;
  5. on the need to “evangelize”;
  6. and finally, the essential role that, on commitment, leadership exercises.
