The Four Directions :
Moving From Emotional Fragility to Passionate Sovereignty
In order to actualize the fundamental business changes required to thrive, grow and prosper in 2021 and beyond, organizations must address a new "way of being" in business.
There are FOUR DIRECTIONS for this change and three conversions per direction. When businesses understand, master, and implement these changes across their organizations they are measurably better at:
- Reducing and eliminating emotional fragility
- Engaging employees and diminishing isolation
- Dealing with people problems
- Mitigating conflict and increasing trust
- Navigating unexpected change and culture shifts
- Re-skilling and up-skilling their teams
- Providing thoughtful access to diversity and equity at work
- Offering support for mental health and grief
- Creating bottom line results
Awaken Your Wild Wisdom + Tell Your Story
The starting point for this work is to look at the story behind what's happening at work. What brought these individuals and these teams to the place they find themselves in today? What bad habits were formed? What strengths overused? What difficulties ignored? How do the individual stories of the people on a team cohese to create the reality they are operating from when they come together to work each day?
Redirecting Energy + Changing Direction
Next we analyze the need for change. We check the start state, the experience of volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments, and the need for transformation and we begin to map what they are doing and changing the focus to how they are showing up every day. We look at individual performance and group dynamics and offer specifics on what needs to shift in order to make room for more beneficial patterns to come in.
Creating Cohesion by Listening + Manifesting
Then we review cohesion. We take a look at relationships, hybrid work models, management styles, personal leadership styles, and team dynamics. Together we create a custom formula out of what is beneficial, where boundaries need to be drawn, and how the group can be courageous, authentic, and extraordinary.
Writing a Vision for the Future + Passionate Sovereignty
