The Good Life + Work Project exists to 'unflatten' leadership and team development, and Change Management. Unflattening means that we shed the constraints of the past to look at leadership and change through fresh eyes.
We start by bringing managers and leaders to understand motivation and how purpose powers purposeful actions, and why people want to experience a good life - a feeling that needs are being met, where they experience more positive feelings on a daily basis than negative.
Life + work are intrinsically linked, you are still living life when you are at work, and what makes your organisation work is you.
Who are you, and what is in your BASKET (Beliefs, Attitudes, Skills, Knowledge, experience & Talent)? What brings you meaning? What brings you a sense of connectedness with people and places, and what brings you a sense of fulfilment?
Imagine the power of those insights when applied to a change programme or in understanding the cultural intelligence opportunities within a diverse and inclusive team.
For example, you could use this intelligence to improve your ability to listen to and understanding people, improving empathy, which develops rapport and trust, leading to increased influence and impact (positive change) as a change manager or leader.
When we talk about impact, we mean positive change linked to productivity, innovation, engagement, collaboration, inclusion, wellbeing, decision-making, learning agility and, ultimately, measurable high-impact outcomes.
The Good Life + Work Project is about you and your team enjoying life, which means enjoying work because purpose powers purposeful actions.
Years of Experience
WE WORK WITH ALL TYPES OF ORGANISATIONS
Everything we do starts with you: your ability to choose your own direction, your skills, and your level of connectedness with people and places.
Instead of focusing on outcomes, we help you understand the power of influence and impact created by engagement, involvement, purpose and purposeful behaviours.
To have an impact you need clarity of purpose, or goals. We focus your mind on what you could do, want to do and will do. We keep you on track using FAST & FAIRR feedback.
A Good Life + Work experience requires an understanding of the connection between mind, body and soul. We tap into the benefits of ecopsychology to fuel your motivation through blue and green exercise.
Mindblowing! I have never had a learning experience like this. This is what leadership development should look like and I can honestly say that it is the best professional development I have experienced. Ever.
Senior Project Manager
...my thoughts go not only to the past year, but an entire 33 1/2 year career...the opportunity to get to know, and work with, you was certainly one of the highlights of my career. I learned a lot and cherished the opportunity to know you on a professional and personal level.
