ENERGISE TEAMS

“Being confident and believing in your own self-worth is necessary to achieving your potential”

 – Sheryl Sandberg

The past few years have brought a tsunami of change for most teams:

  • Virtual working has become a “new normal” for many
  • Traditional boundaries between work and home have disappeared: writing a blank cheque for constant stress 24/7
  • Mental health is on the agenda, like never before. But is it being used by some people as an excuse for non-performance?
  • It can be difficult for managers and colleagues to give feedback, when they don’t have in-person time with each other
  • Operational restructuring is inevitable, brings waves of anxiety and a loss of belonging
  • How do you manage / energise / inspire a team, who may be suffering the effects of “organisational long Covid”?

    Key SWA Insights / Approach

     

    Recognise that many people have lost the reference points that have defined their self-esteem

    A fresh understanding of self-worth unleashes new energy and transforms how people behave (for example, in meetings)

    While self-esteem often leaves people chasing validation, self-worth empowers them with the courage to focus on value

    Your value depends primarily on usefulness – not evaluations, experience, skills or technology. Not even nice comments about you!

    “What’s important is HOW we are valuable, not how valuable we are”

    – Edgar Friedenberg

    SERVICES FOR TEAMS

    A deep sense of self-worth changes how people engage with each other. They bounce back from setbacks and are free to focus on being interested rather than trying to be interesting. Self-worth is a key that unlocks creativity, resilience and better team relationships.

    “The timing of this course coincided with a new job, a new project and an imposed quarantine (COVID-19), so not an easy period. The self-worth approach helped me to gain respect for my time. I can now exercise choice about how I take care of my attention, my work, myself. As a result, I have more energy and less anxiety. I am more focused and productive.”
