co-creating exceptional workplace culture

D is for Difficult Conversations

Picture this: Jason is a member of your team. He’s been with you for a few months now, and he’s a pretty good addition to the team. Ok, yeah, you’ve noticed a couple of times in team meetings that he says something that doesn’t always seem to land well with the rest of the team. [...]

B is for Belonging

What is belonging in a workplace context, and what does it look like? Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand with  what a sense of belonging looks like in workplaces. You’ve probably heard Vanessa Meyers infamous quote, and if we add belonging in, it looks a little like this. Imagine thanks to Quozio [...]

A is for Acknowledgment

Recently I was asked to submit a Bio for a prospective new client, along with a specific request to include examples of client testimonials. Whilst collecting testimonials is not one of my strengths (insert awkward cough emoji), I reached out to a few clients to enquire about their willingness to provide me with something I [...]

Problems with workplace culture aren’t always obvious to spot

Are you pulling your hair out because another employee complaint just landed on your desk? Will you have to spend (yet more) time and money on recruiting and onboarding another employee this quarter? Have you just received yet another customer complaint because one of your staff was rude or unhelpful?  Or maybe, your frustration is [...]

The typical Workology Co client looks a little like this…

Picture this: Six out of seven members of a particular team in your organisation have just permanently exited the building. Ostensibly, they are telling you it is something to do with not being happy about your insistence that they return to the office full-time. You have heard some rumours that this might not be the [...]

Exit Interviews: The Why and The How (not to)

Many years ago, a good mate of mine worked in a role that ended up being the shortest one of her HR career. Looking back, the warning signs were there from before she even started. Exhibit A: her new manager cancelled their scheduled pre-start-employment meeting half an hour before she was due to arrive. Just [...]

‘Human Centric’ – a term you won’t find Workology Co using apart from within this blog

One of the things I try very hard NOT to be, particularly when wearing the Workology Co hat, is overly political or controversial. Having spent two and half decades assisting clients to manage conflict or its fall out in one way or another, I don’t like to invite it into my working world where I [...]

Why a people-first approach is no longer just a ‘nice to have’.

When most people think about how to successfully run their business, I warrant that for the most part, they intentionally plan to adapt a profit maximising approach. However, there is a growing number of business leaders who understand that a people-first approach is what makes the difference between surviving and thriving. Which is why I [...]
