The Nine Minutes on Monday Workshop

Nine Minutes on Monday is a simple system to help you raise productivity, boost morale, and increase employee engagement. The number one reason why managers fail to increase productivity, and get the best out of their people is they neglect to keep their leadership priorities in front of them. In today’s environment it’s easy to become task focused, leaving work teams that are over-managed, under-led, and operating below their true potential.

Nine Minutes on Monday combines proven engagement drivers and principles of human motivation into a simple system of execution. No matter how busy you are, Nine Minutes on Monday will ensure your staff are motivated, inspired, and equipped to bring their best to work each day.
In it you will learn:

    • How to use the simple 9-minute template to keep your leadership priorities in front of you no matter how busy you are so your people are never without their leader
    • How to implement the top engagement drivers and identify which ones you need to focus on the most to create a motivated and high performance team
    • Increase motivation with the three simple questions that will connect purpose to pay by creating a clear line of sight between what employees do and how it affects the organization
    • A four-step formula for giving feedback that takes the stress out of addressing sub-par performance and drives complacency from the workplace
    • How to use the Recognition Codes to reward and recognize your employees so they feel valued, appreciated, and inspired.
    • How to apply the top drivers of engagement with employees who are telecommuting
    • Watch your employees performance and confidence soar with this simple coaching model you can use to develop your staff on a limited time budget
    • The one activity that takes only 10-minutes a week that is a proven engagement driver which most managers neglect




Follow Up

Follow-up to any program is crucial to behavioral change. For this reason, James offers a unique 10-week follow-up process after delivering the Nine Minutes on Monday workshop. This process helps managers stay on track, build good leadership habits, and continue to execute what they’ve learned so they can experience results. This follow-up process is included with every workshop James delivers.


Because no two organizations are the same, James works hard to customize the Nine Minutes on Monday Workshop to your specific needs. Over the years he has developed an efficient process for researching and tailoring the training to best suit your needs. Because of this, managers feel like James is speaking their language. Senior leadership will also be happy because James is able to incorporate any existing messaging or themes already laid out by the organization into his presentation.


At the end of the day, we want you to experience results. When your managers consistently implement the principles from Nine Minutes on Monday, they see an increase in both employee engagement and the health of their teams. One health care organization was having a terrible time with staff engagement. In fact, when they surveyed their employees, engagement was in the 21st percentile. They developed a comprehensive plan for turning things around, and this included training all of their managers in Nine Minutes on Monday. In only 8 short months when they re-tested their staff of about 2,000 people, their engagement scores had doubled and so had their number of High Performing Teams. While they still have a ways to go,  they are making great progress.
