Workplaces are comprised of humans, not machines; yet many of our workplaces have become dehumanized, destroying people’s physical and emotional health and impeding company performance. Humans crave purpose and connection. They want to find fulfillment and effectively integrate their personal and professional lives. They want to know they matter. At the same time, our brains are wired to seek comfort, familiarity and certainty. The problem is that we have entered a new reality where disruption is the new norm - a “VUCA” world full of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. However, it is possible to reconcile the human condition and this new reality. But it requires rethinking our work and moving past self-limiting beliefs. You don’t have to be a C-suite executive or expert in Organizational Development to influence profound change. This session will explore how you can move beyond implementing programs and help shape a more human employee experience from the ground up.
1. Describe key ways workplaces are impeding individual well-being.
2. Understand key principles required for people to thrive in a VUCA world.
3. Describe how to hard-wire attributes of a thriving organization into your workplace.
