For nearly 30 years we’ve partnered with leaders and organizations to help them work through their biggest challenges, achieve their most important strategic goals, and evolve to meet the demands of a fast-changing world. Over those decades we’ve held a simple but important truth at the core of everything we do: we’re all still human beings at work, and when we design our conversations and our systems with that in mind, everyone is more vital, productive and connected.
A few years back Robin talked about Love as “the most human of resources.” Love is a normal, natural, empowering human emotion and yet we don’t talk about it at work. Why is it so hard?
As Robin and Michele share, there is a history that explains our traditional separation of work and personal life, and with it a separation of a worker’s results and their emotional and social world. That history has also encouraged a model of fear and domination as an operating system for getting things done. It is well known that fear is a contracting force, so if we’re hoping for growth why would we let fear lead?
COVID-19 has turned everything upside down, including organizational structure as businesses have had to trust and empower their employees to get work done remotely. Collectively we’ve also had to wake up to how interconnected and interdependent we are. What if those connections were built on something other than fear, something expansive and liberating?
It may sound like a dream, but we’re committed to making it a reality for ourselves and the organizations we partner with. If you’re of the same mind we would love to connect with you—send us a note or connect with us on LinkedIn.
