“My company hired LifeWork Systems to improve our culture and overall performance. Our turnover has dropped by over 50% and employee morale and trust has never been higher.

What Makes Our System So Different?

The #1 competitive advantage for the ‘organizations of tomorrow’ is investing in a human system that creates a NEW KIND OF TEAM in which people are motivated from within. These organizations have developed a RESPONSIBILITY-BASED culture.

Judy Ryan, CEO Lifework Systems

A RESPONSIBILITY-BASED culture is one where you have buy-in from everyone at EVERY LEVEL. Only then do your people show up STRONG. Everyone works together collaboratively, embracing a common mission. The environment is supportive and inclusive, so work gets done quickly and efficiently. Your organization THRIVES and you see rewards everywhere. Other firms provide a one-time training session or campaign.

LifeWork Systems IS DIFFERENT…

We instill into every person common professional behaviors for extraordinary cohesion and results.

We expand human potential to maximize performance.  We are pioneer in applying behavioral sciences to corporations and institutions by implementing scalable, diverse and sustainable “Human System” platforms that have successfully created POWERFUL, responsibility-based behaving, with profound and mission-aligned outcomes.

I also read Judy Ryan's book "What's the Deal With Workplace Culture Change?" Within it are proven processes and tools that ensure employees reach their potential and achieve quality results."

Kevin Shrake, VP & COO


Industry: Healthcare

"MDR is a resource for many healthcare organizations. One of the best practices we have found in the marketplace is LifeWork Systems.

It CAN happen at the same time using their responsibility-based culture model."

Lauren Kolbe, Owner/CEO


Industry: Marketing/PR

"We had problems with employees and teamwork. People were gossiping, sabotaging and lashing out for reasons we couldn't grasp. We thought we had a good culture. Yet things were off. LifeWork Systems has made an incredible impact. Our company now has a REAL CULTURE - one we're all proud of."

Lisa Meyer,  RVP Ops


Industry: Long-Term Care

"A competitor acquired our company and we were struggling to understand our new identity. LifeWork Systems helped our senior executives and then our front line employees. We greatly improved by utilizing a responsibility-based workplace model in multiple facilities within my 1000+ person region, improving our growth and revenues."
