Making Sense of Work - Icebergs and Organisations
Making sense of the world of work
This free session introduces the metaphor of the 'Organisational Iceberg' as a way of understanding the relationship at work between Task (what we are there to do) and Process (the way human aspects impact on the way the job gets done).
20 - 80 training is dedicated to offering online courses that share useful models, frameworks and practical techniques to help us understand and better manage the people side of work. We aim to help individuals, managers and staff groups to develop their own 'inner psychologist' so they can:-
- be more resilient,
- have better wellbeing,
- improve relationships and decrease friction
- increase effectiveness
- manage and be managed in a way that people want to do their best,
- build better teams,
- communicate more clearly and with greater influence
so that the task can be done more effectively, efficiently, willingly, and at less human cost.
Chris has been fascinated by people, what makes us 'tick', get on with each other (or not) , and what affects our behaviour and performance, since his teenage years. He has spent 40 plus years enthusiastically exploring and studying individual and organisational effectiveness, wellbeing, resilience, relationships. With over 25 years experience in management training, consultancy, personal development and coaching, Chris has looked for the 'difference that makes the difference' to find simple models and effective techniques and strategies that are easily learnt, and work in practice.
Chris has qualifications in organisational analysis & behaviour, psychology and social work, and is a certified NLP trainer and Master Practitioner. He lives in Lancashire, UK, with his wife Glenda, who is equally passionate about people, learning and wellbeing.
