CULTURE NUDGE IN THE WORKPLACE

We help organisations and Senior Executives by providing:

- Organisational development

- Executive coaching & Mentoring

- Leadership cultivation

- Nurturing cognitive diversity

- Harnessing disruptive talent

Our Executive Coaches will support you to define and solve challenging problems in your working life.

 

OUR APPROACH

We champion the two-way transition between psychotherapy & executive coaching. Psychological wellbeing and work performance both sit on a continuum, and are inextricably and dynamically interconnected.


Unlike most other executive coaching providers, we acknowledge the undeniable influence of an individual's personal life on their working life and help to nudge both aspects in the right direction.

We will offer alternative perspectives on issues and concerns, and provide genuine support in times of crisis.

Workplace culture tends to emerge from the personalities of senior leaders in an organisation's hierarchy.  On a systemic level, we can discuss opportunities to engender a workplace culture that inspires maximal engagement and productivity. 

We can help you to identify the strengths and talents in your executive team, fostering productivity and success.


Salient themes that we would cover include: leadership, sustaining top-level performance, and agile working.​

 

THE POWER OF WORKPLACE CULTURE

Conformity and obedience research reveals the human tendency to comply with the status quo.  This can sometimes occur without the full awareness of those involved.


A perceived pressure to 'go with the flow' can give rise to cultures that inhibit engagement and creativity. 


Employees can feel disincentivised and discouraged to apply themselves in enthusiastic and tenacious ways.  Such cultures can culminate in employees learning to play the system to their personal advantage, even to the point of parasitising the organisation. 


Insightful chief executives recognise that imbuing a psychologically safe culture and a shared sense of purpose is likely to increase engagement, reduce absenteeism, and raise the bottom line.


Empowering employees to proverbially stick their heads above the parapet can inspire commitment, thought leadership, and productivity.


The Culture Nudge process endeavours to create a workplace culture in which potential is developed to its fullest, for the benefit of all.

 

PSYCHOLOGICAL WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE

  • ​30% of the UK workforce have been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime.​

  • Psychological problems are the 2nd highest cause of sickness absence.

  • Stress is thought to account for almost half of working days lost due to health issues.​

  • For employers, the costs of poor mental health in the workplace are substantial.  It costs businesses on average between £1,300 - £2,277 (depending on region) per employee per year of poor mental health.​

  • There are also indirect costs of poor mental health to employers such as the adverse impact on creativity and fellow employees.​

  • Employers have a legal responsibility to protect the health of their employees.

  • There is evidence to show that mental health programmes can create a return on investment of up to 800% for businesses.  Preventative measures are particularly effective.

  • A 2019 report by Deloitte found that, for every £1 that a business invests in mental health initiatives, there is an average of £5 return on investment.  Furthermore, investment in a range of measures could lead to up to £11 ROI for every £1 invested.​
