Engaging your team to actively participate in the business and empowering them to make improvements by eliminating waste to make their life easier
Our Workplace Advisors really understands the Behaviour → Attitude → Culture model. Before you can change workplace culture you first must change individual behaviour. This is done by creating work standards and defined ways of working, seeking the teams input in how a job is done. Once agreed it is locked in via standardised work which when followed, results in predictable and reliable outcomes. When this happens, peoples attitude begin to change and they become more confident to suggest improvements to make their lives easier. As these improvements become implemented the workplace culture begins to change. Workplace Culture is defined as “the way we do things around here.” Simply trying to change culture leads nowhere as you have not provided the stimulus to make and embed change.
Other benefits of this approach are that it engages the team in workplace improvement activities and empowers the team to make change become a reality. It also commences the building of trust between workers and leaders, a key ingredient if the organisation is to become successful.
Leaders get things done through people and if the leaders in an organisation don’t have the skill set to work effectively with and via people then staff turnover will increase, improvements won’t be suggested, and trust disappears. Our Advisors when working to develop leaders: build rapport, demonstrate empathy, dig deep to get the best out of the leader, seek approval to challenge, are able to give tough feedback in a constructive way, demonstrate active listening and are inspired to make a difference to people’s lives.
Workplace Partners offer a range of services from formal leadership development through to coaching and mentoring programmes depending on the clients’ needs. All Our advisers have extensive experience in business and are able to give advice or insights on most situations, putting different perspective ensuring the leaders actually thinks before they act.
