Alternatives to Business-As-Usual

Alternatives to Business-As-Usual

SenseTribe is currently supporting the Wellbeing Economy Alliance with the launch of ‘The Business of Wellbeing’ Guide. The guide is written for decision makers of mid-sized organisations and aims to offer an overview of dimensions and solutions to consider when making your business part of the transition towards a wellbeing economy (one that considers people and the planet as part of its intrinsic purpose).

What is special about the guide?

From the beginning the guide vision has been to include different stakeholder perspectives. In collaborative creation sessions the purpose and strategy was elaborated, while different stakeholders, decision makers and solution providers were consulted in qualitative interviews.

As a result, the guide consolidates a number of different options for each dimension and gives a clear overview on considerations to make, without focusing on a specific context or region.

A series of articles and case studies will be published over the coming weeks on the WeAll website and towards the beginning of the coming year, a complete guide will be made available.

Strong teams talk about elephants training March 2020

Strong teams talk about elephants training March 2020

In a time where more and more teams are expected to work in an autonomous way, facilitating team dialogue about interpersonal tensions might well be one of the most crucial aspects of leadership. And one of the most challenging.

Description:

Many teams and organisations struggle or fail to collaborate effectively because of tensions and conflict in teams. These interpersonal tensions often take up team energy and can lead to disengagement when they are not addressed.

Instead of ignoring the elephants in the room, strong teams are capable of dealing with interpersonal issues in an open and transparent way. They know that conflict is part of (work) life, and have the skills and awareness needed to have these challenging conversations with each other about team elephants. As a result the safety and trust in the team increases.
