Employee Culture Development
WAYS TO USE UPWARD EMPLOYEE TRAINING
1 — ONLINE SCREENING FOR APPLICANTS
If an applicant for a position at your business isn’t interested in learning about creating wealth by producing value for others, you likely don’t want that applicant becoming an employee.
So why not screen for those kinds of attitudes right up front?
The mere willingness to go through the online Upward program reveals that an applicant is willing to invest time in learning the foundational ideas that make your business successful.
The willingness to invest a small amount of money, should you choose to have applicants pay for Upward training, reveals even more about an applicant’s desire to join your value-producing business team.
And the opportunity to discuss the ideas presented in the Upward program provides you, the employer, an opportunity to learn much about the attitudes and personality of a potential employee before you offer a job, rather than after.
2 — ONLINE TRAINING FOR NEW HIRES
Why not set the right tone right when an employee is hired?
The online Upward training program can be used as part of new employee orientation, reinforcing the fundamentals about how an employee can help himself and create new wealth by producing value for and helping others, and how your business is the perfect opportunity to create value and help fellow employees, managers and supervisors, the business owners, and customers and clients.
After all, that’s what your business is: an organized effort to create wealth by providing something that your customers value and that puts smiles on their faces.
3 — ONLINE TRAINING FOR CURRENT EMPLOYEES
Many employees today think in terms of “us” versus “them.” “Us” means the employees who think they’re entitled to far more than they are currently getting at work.
And let’s make no bones about it: “Them” is you, the business owner. Many employees see the business owner where they’re employed as the enemy, the bad guy, the one who is effectively stealing and taking what should belong to the employees.
So … Do you want to improve the culture among your current employees?
The online Upward training program can be used to inspire current employees and hep them to think in a slightly better, more positive way about their job and the business where they work.
Online Upward training can remind and reinforce the ideas to current employees that they have great control over their own futures. Upward training reminds current employees that they can help themselves by creating new wealth, and they can create new wealth by producing value for and helping others.
Upward training also emphasizes that your business is the perfect opportunity to create value and help fellow employees, managers and supervisors, the business owners, and customers and clients—and that is the path for employees getting more of what they want and improving their own lives!
4 — IN-PERSON COACHING FOR MANAGERS AND EMPLOYEES
Online training is good. Online training reinforced with live, in-person discussions is better.

5 — CONSULTING: ATTRACTING VALUE-PRODUCERS TO YOUR BUSINESS
Your business is more than what most people consider merely a business.
And a job at your business is more than what most people consider merely a job.
Your business is an organized team that creates wealth by providing value for people.
A job at your business is an invitation to join that team, create wealth, and help in the work of providing value for people.
Speakeasy Ideas will help you craft language and a strategy to market new job openings in your company that will attract those from outside your company who are most interested in producing value.
After all, with few exceptions, most skills needed at most jobs at most businesses can be taught on the job. And that teaching is far easier and more effective when an employee has an ambitious attitude oriented toward creating wealth and producing value.
