Ways to Work Within Organizations Today
Longer term for on-going results
From the first analysis, a program is designed loosely, as things will come up to be addressed which allows for flexibilty making the program about them and not about the binder.
Shorter Term for basic changes – working with depression, stress, etc.
Here is where the stress, anxiety, depression, etc. would be looked at first to help employees, dissolve those barriers, and be back at work with a more positive outlook and a willingness to work.
Once employees are back on track, then a program can be made from the analysis, keeping in mind these general topics.
- Inspire, motivate, listen and communicate

- Goals team decided with leader that align with the organization

- Where you want to be and are all valued?
- Understanding of vision and goals are understood at all levels
- Where everyone fits in?
- Contribution to bottom line from all

Successful communicating, on any level, will be received much differently if it comes from the heart as well as the head. These are not separate and it takes whole body communicating to bring things to a higher result, and greater satisfaction for all levels. That is why, putting in some parts of life coaching into the mix, here and there, pays big dividends.

“From the moment I met you Lynne, I knew you were someone different than the pack of consultants that I had known from my past life. You got it! You understood that beneath the labels like leader or manager or welder, or whatever – the thing that we sometimes forget is that we are all people. You can teach all of the techniques in the world, but without a bit of empathy, without truly communicating on a human level, you will fall short.
I am so pleased you worked with this wonderful group. You taught them, you challenged them, and most of all you inspired them.
