'Holistic culture: Wuwei for your business and team'



Cultivating an entity with intellect, knowledge and experience alone is limited. Such limitation results in numerous challenges that hinder the workflow, exhausts resources (both personal and financial) and impair longevity. 

Long lasting behavioral shift and awareness through communication of knowledge and practice, alone, never worked. 

Assuming that a holistic approach is the answer. Why and how would it be approached?

'While change management can be taught and learned, change-competency requires a fundamental shift in culture & Values. It must become part of the day-to-day operations and cannot be simply demonstrated in training or instructional material'

~ Jeffrey M. Hiatt & Timothy J. Creasey

Approach

The traditional/ normal way of learning is focused on accumulating intellectual knowledge and acquiring of concepts and beliefs. While this way is effective within the material and technical fields, it does fall short in the psychological field (where culture and our values operate). This is due to the nature of this learning, psychologically, in forming structures and systems that act as the truth for the one who holds them, which end up creating resistance and limitation for anything that is new, anything that challenges the systems in place.

A holistic culture and its approach are based on purifed perception not on systems of beliefs, rational were they or not. An approach based on direct contact with what is, without being mislead by accumulated experience no matter how valuable it may seem to be. Refer to Tripute's Initiative for more info.

'Methodologies cost a lot of time and money to acquire and they soon expire to be replaced by newer products, that is if they were to deliver the promised results to begin with. The holistic approach awakens a quality of perception that is beyond any methodology or technique'

This quality is not born out of a methodology, which ends up as a limiting structure. It is through learning attentiveness and understanding that the day-to-day interactions, together, that the flow of work and relationships are transformed.

A culture of action instead of pure reaction is then born.

'Serious efforts to change company culture can take five or more years to make stick, yet the median CEO tenure for the S&P 500 is only six years. As a result, employees can feel that a culture initiative is only a phase to endure' ~ Rich Lyons

So it starts with top leadership but won’t take root unless each employee is nurtured and empowered to lead as well.

Together, through various formats and setups including problem solving and brain storming spaces. It is a collective undertaking, not a periodic training that satisfies a KPI or two.

And due to this, the following program is proposed:

Program

ACTIVITIES: 

•  Executive coaching (4 sessions per executive )

•  Company-wide holistic approach and values open dialogue/ panel discussion (12 )

•  Individual coaching for potential culture leaders  (4 sessions per individual )

•  Ad-hoc values interview for future potential employees

FREQUENCY & DURATION

Option A - 3 months with weekly sessions

Option B - 1.5 months with half-weekly sessions

DISCLAIMER: 

The program can be assumed as a whole or in parts, depending on the needs of the establishment.

Benefits

These benefits are not to be expected in full or in sequence due to the nature of a holistic response which is beyond prediction:

  • Save future change management costs and time
  • Shifting from demanding growth to nurturing it
  • Manifestation of comfort in not knowing 
  • Shortening of learning intervals
  • Integration within the company
  • Resilience in conflict and resistance resolution
  • Empowered environment for trust and transparency

Ending Notes

'The common worry should be replaced by a new paradigm—one that recognises the inevitability of failure in today’s complex work organisations. Those that catch, correct, and learn from failure before others do will succeed' ~ Amy Edmondson

Trying something new, which is delivered in a new way every time sure leaves no room for comfort and security. It is a risk, but one I believe you should take, not one time, but every time. 

This program is an eye opener to the necessary risk to be taken every day and on every level in order to address that which our inherited instincts tell us to ignore.

This is more than just a thing to do for your work and business, to me, I consider this program to be an initiative tackled in the right context, where it matters most.

I am inviting you for us to see this through together in whatever capacity available to both of us .
