Workplaces and industries that shift rapidly and remain stable achieve big goals!
We teach leaders how to lead an adaptable, evolving workplace grounded in the 13 factors of psychological health and safety. In addition, we correlate and focus in on the evidence-based leader skills, competencies and workplace context that applies in your industry and to your business outcomes.
Culture informed leadership training is the newest, most relevant competitive advantage. We know that leading effective change today requires innovation and a deep understanding of people. We can help. We are a boutique learning and workplace development company focused on the science of the people side of workplace change.
What is better than science? Better, more recent science! The past five years alone has seen dramatic differences in what works to drive a psychologically-healthy work environment and positive business change. The practices that served workplaces 10 or 15 years ago do not help leaders with today's more complex, dynamic conditions. Our training is based on proven drivers of change and linking knowledge, competencies, skill-building, attitudes and behaviour.
The thing about hard things. They're hard. Change is hard. Working with people can be hard. Sometimes the best next step is to get another perspective and view the challenge from another angle. Leaders come to us for three reasons:
You know your business and your areas of specialty. We reframe the leader and team challenge based on the new skills needed today, behavioural science, psychological health and safety, and our 25 years, 17 industry sectors, of business growth strategy experience. This results in a learning approach that engages, inspires and also delivers practical applied insights.
The good news. We can build a program that results in learning doing double-triple duty. For example, the same behavioural-based science that helps leaders and supervisors become more adaptable in managing worker needs can result in high-performance. The answer lies in building programs that support "high-development" industry cultures. The second piece of good news is that high-development cultures result in engaged employees, exceptional collaboration, happy customers and significantly greater profitability. (Gallup December 2019)
Let's get specific. What if you are working to change a workplace or work site culture for continuous improvements in safety culture? What are some of the key things you can do when you hit an improvement plateau? 2019 research conducted in North American industrial settings shows that plateaus are reached when the focus of change has been directed at processes and tools and not enough focus on changing mindset and unique people skills; on the attitudes and behaviours of people inside the organization. That is our leadership training specialty. It is great to create a diverse group of employees, but the magic happens when they work amazingly well together. Specific, targeted leader and employee development can help you move past these typical collaboration roadblocks.
Let's connect. Let's discuss your goals and explore how we can work together. Our specialty is working with industries that have complex, evolving work environments that are looking to innovate and embrace change; like construction, manufacturing, engineering and innovation-focused industries. Our work begins with a conversation about the change you are looking for or the source of your challenge. Effective learning strategy like business strategy is both art and science. Coupled with root cause analysis, we bring both to the table.
