Capacity is limited. We can't afford to settle for doing more with less because it leads to unfocused work and discouraged teams. This consult facilitates emerging your organizational WHY that anchors all things. It gives clarity and consistency in decision making and offers focus when challenges arise. Clients develop filtering questions that offer additional confidence and equity, allowing organizations to determine with intention where they will place resources and energy. Discovering how to leverage a relevancy-impact assessment tool is a third component of the consults that guide conversations on next-steps and resource stewardship. Clients report increased clarity, focus, engagement, energy, and productivity.
Design and implement strategies that shift from an exhausted existence to aligning how you live and work to create balance and direction. "It's just me, it doesn't matter." Wrong. Even if you are the only employee, when you ignore designing the culture you want to grow, one will show up and it will influence your client's experience and directly impact profitably. Relevancy in why, how, and what you do is at the root of an organization's culture, even when you are a solopreneur. "Thanks, but I already have a business plan." Not enough. Your business plan is likely for the logistics and necessary for that part of your organization. This deeper work with Sandy is about exploring culture questions that set you apart, developing resiliency to face the challenges and identifying what is relevant so your energy is conserved for what you want to grow. All by design, not default.
One conversation. One exchange of words spoken, written, typed, texted, or posted can change the direction and ultimately the outcomes, whether it’s in the workplace, home, faith community, coffeehouse, or a country. And yet, the skill and practice of conversation is given little attention and less intention in organizations. An environment dependent on conversations, not only to get work done but to recruit, retain, and engage people [team, clients, customers, vendors, partnerships], directly impacts the sustainability of the organization.
To have authentic conversations that lead to sustainable solutions and connection we need to guide and guard the table. Teams that give attention and ongoing intention to these ten principles can create the safe and brave work cultures. Cultures that offer the environments needed to face challenges and make decisions with greater resiliency, relevancy that lead to results!
The challenges seem to be mounting both professionally and personally as our capacity seems to deplete. Sometimes we can get stuck and settle into the struggle versus leveraging it to fuel forward. This interactive training explores specific ways resiliency can be elevated through practical strategies and stories. It offers the space and time to practice ideas for progress not perfection. To fuel resiliency, relevancy and relationships even in the middle of challenges.
To design environments that inspire transformative work and teams we need to engage sustainable strategies that grow, protect and represent the desired organization's culture. Do you know what culture you want or are you settling for a default version that is likely costing the organization on multiple levels? Recruitment. Retention. Engagement. Ultimately impacting livability and well-being for your team and clients you serve.
Where there is ongoing conflict, frustration, confusion, office politics or signs of disengagement there is a fractured culture and the loss is costly to your people and your brand. Your work culture is your brand. Period. Your brand influences team recruitment, retention of quality team members and workplace engagement. It's all connected and needs brave conversation rather than a one and done workshop.
