exceptional workplace culture

E is for Emotional Intelligence

EQ. EI. Whatever acronym you prefer, one thing I reckon we can probably agree on, is that having a high level of EI is absolutely crucial in order for someone to be a good leader. Quite frankly, if you don’t agree with that statement, I’m not quite sure what you are doing here reading a [...]

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. [...]

C is for Communication

Communication is the most critical ingredient of good, let alone great or exceptional, culture. There. I said it. Workology Co's Whitepaper found there are 6 key ingredients that make up exceptional workplace culture. Communication was one of the six. But in all honesty, in the absence of good communication practices, the other 5 ingredients  (such as [...]

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 [...]

Why hybrid working arrangements are just the start

However, this little workplace culture nerd is becoming increasingly concerned at hearing stories of organisations  latching onto the concept [...]

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 [...]

The Workology Co definition of Exceptional Workplace Culture

As I write this blog, it is early July here in Melbourne town. Early July =  several things. 1: It’s cold and often rainy. Man, do I desperately need to chase some cosmics.* 2: We are in the heart of footy season. But that’s all I’m gunna say about that, because I’m currently on a [...]

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 [...]
