‘Connection is the energy that is created between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement’ – Brené Brown
Imagine your team collaborating greater, addressing differences and challenging assumptions in leadership styles, communication, working practices and day-to-day interaction. Solutions for Balance helps develop connection and fosters inclusiveness between gender, generation and culture.
Gender connection – there is a growing bias on developing women in leadership positions and providing them with a platform to benefit the profitability and performance of organisations. Yet at the heart of any remarkable team is inclusiveness between members – men and women. Solutions for Balance helps organisations achieve an effective balance between genders by supporting connective working, and identifying and improving processes to recruit and retain outstanding talent.
Generation connection – as the age of retirement extends and the generation mix within organisations becomes greater, Solutions for Balance works to improve communication and interaction between generations so an organisation benefits from different but equally valuable skills, attributes and approaches to work and the wider world.
Cultural connection – most organisations face issues of cultural difference on a day-to-day level – internally or with customers and suppliers. Solutions for Balance facilitates smoother communication and interaction between cultures by improving awareness of the impact of cultural diversity and identifying strategies for collaborative working.
