Today I wanted to give you a little testimony from someone who participated in the The Dream Employee that we provide as a service to companies. I know you’ve heard me talk about it before. However, today, I wanted to talk about it not just as a concept of how it works or what it does, but rather share a real testimony of someone who participated in the program. This is their personal result for themselves and their organization.
So this is how it played out. About three years ago we presented the idea of The Dream Employee to a company. We had all the team members participate in it. Each team member filled out a card. They wrote down 3-5 goals or dreams that they wanted to achieve for themselves. One young lady who participated had a goal to go back and finish her college degree. Her second goal was to buy her first home.
Now, remember this was three years ago. Because of the way things rolled out and happened we have only been following up via email and some other support that we have. This particular person we had not seen in three years.
A couple of months ago we had another meeting at the organization. To our surprise this same woman walks in. In her hand was her Dream Employee card that she had filled out 3 years ago. She wanted to show us that she had not only finished her degree, but she had changed departments and was actually working in the department she had always wanted to work in. Also, she had just recently bought her first home.
She showed us her Dream Employee card. It was filled out with her goals, the steps she had taken, and what she had done. She was raving about how this process had helped her; not only in her personal life but also in her career. She feels like she contributes to her organization in a much bigger way now.
This is just a cool little story but one of many that we hear about all the time. We hope this shows you the power of this process within an organization. Reach out to us and schedule a free consultation if you’d like to hear more stories or would like us to demonstrate The Dream Employee in your company.
Start your New Year off engaging your employees in a whole new way — believing in them and helping them achieve their hopes, dreams and aspirations.
