For many businesses and organizations (Charities, Third Sector Organizations, NGO's) in the 21st Century, the workplace, the culture of work and the work ethic is rapidly changing.
Business owners and their staff want to have meaning and purpose in what they do.
Financial profits are important, but social impact, ethics, well-being and the environment are equal driving forces in measuring a successful business.
So what about your company? What are it's values ?
Are you and your teams highly motivated ?
Do you feel connected to your work, does it align with your personal purpose?
Transformation and Change
Taking the approach where you discover what is working well for you and then build from those strengths is a different way to change your business. Accentuate the positive rather than focusing on the negative. Using Appreciative Inquiry (AI) interviews and the whole (AI) system approach I can support your business or organization to shift focus in a dramatic way.
Communication Skills - Giving and Receiving Feedback
If you did an analysis of your business or organization and the current communication styles and systems what would you discover ? At the heart of every good business or organization are good communication skills. A well operating business is where
- everybody knows how to give feedback
- Everyone is able to stay current with topics
- All staff knows where to go with information and to get information
- Employees keeps great working relationships with each other
- Communication flows well within teams
- With management
- With external suppliers
- With clients
What's the communication culture of your business?
I am skilled at supporting businesses and organizations get a better handle on their interpersonal communication skills and policies, including appraisals, feedback sessions and constructive evaluations.
What is your management structure? Do you have a hierarchy ? How inclusive are you when implementing change? Using change management procedures based on Dynamic Self-governance (DSG) or sociocracy could support your business or organization to change while keep everyone included and involved.
DSG involves setting up structures and procedures for highly inclusive management strategies. Your organization can move from and "us and them" culture of management and employees to a "we are" collective and collaborative force, whilst still retaining the knowledge of who is in charge, where the decision making power rests.
How effective are you as a leader? Be it of your team, your whole business or organization? I also use as the rock bed of my work - The Work of Byron Katie - with leaders and team leaders of any business or organization to examine stressful thoughts, blocks or beliefs that are preventing them from moving forward. You are invited to question what is stopping you from being the leader you want to be, a leader in the 21st century that leads with heart, soul and passion.
I work with businesses for 1/2 day, 1 day or longer workshops, individual coaching for senior management and/or on an ongoing consultancy basis.
