Human Flourishing for Empowering High Growth Cultures
Tony Holmwood, Culture Strategy & Change Facilitator, Outperf4m
About this talk
For a person, flourishing is the ability to grow as a human being through good times and through life struggles. In the process, they seek to live lives of meaning and aspire to fulfill their potential. William James, the founder of modern psychology stated that the greatest discovery of his generation is that human beings can alter their lives by ultimately altering their perceptions and attitudes.
Emerging developments in the field of neuroscience, moral/social psychology and behavioural ethics, are challenging our understanding of the ‘rational human.’ While we may have choices, collective social forces easily eclipse values such as personal integrity. The reason is our need for ‘social belonging’ influences both behaviour and mindset. Research supports 50-70% of an organisation's culture is influenced by leadership behaviour. But for employees to flourish, HR and leaders may need to change their mindset to inspire future pathways and rally employees behind a bold vision.
In his book “Best Behaviour”, Tony Holmwood uses behavioural modelling and research to prove how environmental perceptions and social connection influences self-value. In this presentation, Tony examines how by engaging, motivating and empowering employees, HR and leaders can coach:
- Job characteristics, circumstances like having more autonomy and job security for positive personality change.
- Environmental perceptions by creating open, safe, secure workplaces that have a profound effect on employee self-control and confidence, wellbeing, productivity and engagement.
- With reference to his behavioural development framework, how aligning behavioural learning to functional and professional development objectives will supercharge growth.
