The old ways of working, are no longer working

The events of 2020 sparked a cultural/values shift that drove people to seek more balance & meaning from their work. In 2021 we witnessed The Great Resignation unfold as large numbers of  people left their jobs in search of a deeper purpose. The concpet of work, what it means and what we seek from it is changing rapidly. The old systems are crumbling, the expectations, working 9-5, feeling like a "slave to a company", all these things are driving people away from their workplaces. 

We need to remodel the way organisations are run and explore the role they play in a persons life. We need to go beyond quick culture fixes and ask questions like "How do we relate to each other?" or " How can we cultivate a way of working that feels more in line with our humanity?".

 It's time to ditch old, ineffective workplace practises that drain and devalue us and rebuild organisations with humanity, authenticity and purpose.
