Work Expectations Workshop


Work expectations are those things people consider likely to happen in their job situation, either now or in the future. Whether spoken or unspoken, expectations are the key drivers of our attitudes, impacting our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Research shows that people who have clearly defined, well-communicated expectations find more satisfaction and success in their work than people whose expectations go unspoken or unrealized. And companies that employ satisfied, successful people reap the rewards of increased productivity and reduced turnover.

In a typical employment situation, certain expectations, such as, salary, hours, and job duties, are clearly understood by both employer and employee. Other expectations, however, are so intimately linked to an individual’s concept of work that they often go unspoken or unacknowledged. The workshop will explore 10 key expectations that impact today’s employment relationships:

  • Recognition
  • Autonomy
  • Expression
  • Career Growth
  • Diversity
  • Teamwork
  • Structure
  • Environment
  • Balance
  • Stability

When combined with the Are You a Coach or a Referee? Workshop, it provides a manager or supervisor with the tools necessary to ensure that he or she better understands the expectations and needs of each individual employee who works for him or her.
