Make Work Suck Less Jumpstart

If you're ready to pull your head out of the sand, let's work together to make work suck less

What it is
An offering that uncovers what actually matters to your team.
We'll find out what sucks the most and what's driving people to look for greener pastures.
We'll train you on change leadership and help you develop realistic improvement plans.
What it's not
Recommendations for kombucha taps, trust falls, casual Friday, or a 12x12 matrix of transformation that will never be achieved.
What makes our program different
We focus on change leadership.
We enable you to make positive change instead of depending on us.
What you get
  1. a hitlist of problems to solve
  2. the skills to drive lasting change
  3. a realistic, actionable project plan that you can run
We don't make you dependent on us. We give you what you need to drive continuous improvement yourself.

We can do this later
Engagement has hit its lowest point since 2008, with no indication of improvement.
It's not really a problem
Let's validate that. If your company is the exception, we'll generate a case study that showcases your success!
We can do this ourselves
Great! Why hasn't it happened? We can help get you kicked off.
Isn't this HR's job?
It can be, but continuous improvement and taking care of your people is everyone's responsibility.
It costs too much
We've priced it so that you get >10x ROI. Besides, it costs up to 2 times a person's annual salary to replace them.
We can't fix it
52% of voluntarily exiting employees say that their company could have done something to prevent them from leaving.
Why Pod2?
We answer that on our consulting website.
