- Suddenly self managed - Wellbeing in the FoW
As the pandemic descended awe entered an era of super VUCA with exponential change all around, and dramatic changes in the way we work, as 50% of the population suddenly found themselves essentially self managed; working from home, in charge of their energy, focus and schedule with heightened personal responsibility, while more disconnected from their team, and less availability of support and resources. How do we manage our time, physical and emotional health, productivity, and yes, even happiness, amidst these massive changes? How do we overcome challenges of eroding constructs of work, such as life separation, the 9-5 workday, and command and control management? Backed by science and filled with examples of organizations and individuals adapting and thriving..., this talk brings to the forefront the new emotional needs to thrive in our worklife, and offers inspiring stories and concepts to respond and adapt to these changes, becoming better self managers, and on the organizational level, opening to a culture that responds to these challenges and is not held back trying to preserve elements of culture and work that are no longer relevant.
- Starting scaling and sustaining culture for the future of work
As the world has been thrust into change and the work has dramatically shifted, many of our old reliable constructs such as the physical office space, have been turned on their head. And we are faced with challenges, but also an unprecedented opportunity to seize the tipping point of change to recreate the workplace in a higher, more human and more effective form. We’ve been talking the talk on creating better workplaces, by force of function we are having to walk the walk. How do we start, or restart, reimagining our workplace? And what do we need to scale and sustain our ideal culture in the new, increasingly adaptable world of work? This talk shares the journey of DH in uncovering how to build a sustainable culture, remotely, in the last 10 years, and lessons learned from 300 clients in 30 countries catapulted into the future of work, applicable now, to reinvent your culture, support your unique organizational needs, while responding to the demands of the new world of work from adaptability to innovation to, yes, happiness.
- Managing wellbeing: How leaders can support thriving in the new normal
An emotionally healthy, happy workforce is not just good for business, but is essential in the new world of remote, distributed and rapidly adapting work. Leaders who may have previously viewed wellness as outside their role and their control, are now in the position where their team’s wellbeing matters more than ever as they face the need to continue to innovate, collaborate and produce results with engagement. Leaders and especially managers continue to be the primary factor for their team’s engagement and resilience. So how can their role evolve to include supporting employees' new needs and emotional wellbeing, while managing remote and distributed teams in the Adaptable Age? This talk will highlight the importance of leadership in times of change and uncertainty and right into the future of work, and offer a framework and practical steps to immediately start building wellbeing into business as usual, to unleash and multiply employees effectiveness, while evolving to a more human and happy organization.
