Building and implementing an Adaptive Culture for Wellbeing and Performance

Building and implementing an Adaptive Culture for Wellbeing and Performance

18 October, London - facilitated by Professor Derek Mowbray

Background

Psychological presenteeism (people coming to work but under performing through lack of concentration due to stress) is the major challenge for organisations. The costs of this form of presenteeism are estimated to be between 1.5 and 3 times the costs of sickness absence and staff turnover.

The approach to preventing psychological presenteeism is to build an adaptive culture that promotes commitment, trust and engagement. This will heavily influence the way managers and staff interact with each other, and is evidenced as reducing and eliminating psychological distress which results in improved engagement and performance.

High Performing Culture

  • purpose that is clear and unambiguous, expressed as a simple ‘big idea’, an idea which all the staff relate to closely, and are proud to discuss with friends and colleagues.
  • atmosphere of confidenceof sharing responsibility for the future success of the organisation, where all the staff are encouraged to think independently, are attentive to each other, are kindly and support each other, and act with humanity.
  • behaviour of individuals that demonstrates Psychological Responsibility, is respectful towards others, demonstrates the value of the ideas, views and opinions of others, enables teams to be places of mutual support, where anything is debated without a hint of humiliation, where the critique of individual and team work is welcomed, discussed and where lessons are learnt and implemented.
  • staff who project a confidence towards clients and customers, who‘go the extra mile’ by providing unsolicited ideas, thoughts, stimulus to each other, and where their interest in their customers offers something more than is expected, beyond courtesy, and beyond service, offering attentiveness and personal interest.
  • leaders and managers who challenge their staff, who provide opportunities for personal development through new experiences, and who treat everyone with fairness and understanding.
  • an organisation that is driven by its values towards organisational and personal success, intellectually, financially, socially and emotionally.

An adaptive culture provides the conditions in which managers and staff freely interact with each other, and their clients/customers in a kind, humorous and helpful way.

This seminar provides an overview of the steps and approaches to implementing this form of culture, including the creation/use of a Charter for Wellbeing and Performance which provides a basis for changing culture.
