If you’ve ever asked yourself any of the questions below, you’re in the right place.

“Why can’t I get my employees motivated?”

“How do my competitors get more from their workers than I can?”

“Why isn’t my business growing as fast as I thought it could?”

“How can I persuade employees to be more creative?”

“Why is staff turnover so high?”

“How can I learn what motivation works when there’s so much conflicting information available?

I believe smart entrepreneurs and business leaders who want to win in today’s crowded marketplace MUST become masters at generating the highest levels of performance from their employees.

How can you find the time to work on improving your employees’ performance while running your business . . . and while raising a family? Instead of digging through hundreds of books, thousands of academic research papers, and wasting time on anecdotes and strategies by so called “experts,” subscribe to my newsletter (it’s free).

Bob’s passion is to improve people’s lives by improving the culture and practices where they spend much of their waking hours . . . at work. For business leaders, a more energetic, dedicated, and high-performing team to grow their business. For employees, a workplace where they will thrive and want to give their very best. And for both, to have a positive experience in the workplace and to achieve their life goals faster.

To that end, this website and accompanying newsletter provide simple and practical tips to improve business practices and to enable employees to operate at high levels of performance.

There have been large advances in the study of human motivation and performance in the workplace. However, most businesses do not implement what has been known in scientific circles for years. But that’s not surprising. There’s a lot of information available on workplace motivation, but much of it is rooted in anecdotal practices without much solid scientific backing. How do you wade through all this information and suggested practices and know which give you the top performance from employees that you need?

After a life-changing positive experience at a rapidly-growing startup, Bob sought to identify, for his own use, what it was about that work environment that fostered such a high level of employee performance. No single theory of motivation explained it, but combining the conditions required by two widely accepted theories did. Together they yielded four workplace conditions that described the work environment he experienced, and that produced the high levels of performance he knew could be generated.

After making this discovery he realized that these findings were too good to keep to himself; that others in management positions may be as unaware of this finding as he was. And that putting these ideas into practice could change their businesses and their lives. It was at that point that he decided to put this framework into a format that would be simple for any business to implement and labelled it the R.A.M.P. framework.

I was amazed how building such a high-performance environment could be boiled down to four simple and fundamental conditions. And that this simple solution could be implemented in any business, regardless of market or business type. – Bob Hessler
