WORK NEEDS A
NEW OPERATING SYSTEM
(And we're not talking about devices.)
THE WAY WE WORK IS
We feel it every day. And yet, our organizational changes don't achieve their desired impact—there's a 70% failure rate (and has been for decades).
MOST CHANGE EFFORTS FAIL BECAUSE WE DON'T CHANGE THE OPERATING SYSTEM.
Our organizations are running the equivalent of Windows 95 — which is CRAZY in an iOS/Android world.
In a nutshell, this is what Helios offers — a new "energy-based" operating system for work.
HOW DOES AN ENERGY-BASED OPERATING SYSTEM (ebOS) WORK?
You can start to "hack" and replace the old system with just three things...
A PEOPLE MAGNET
This is a "noble cause," bigger than making more money and more than mission/purpose/vision. It needs enough gravitational, magnetic power to serve as everyone's singular boss, which helps replace top-down command hierarchy.
These are collectively-agreed-upon principles that must be externalized out of leaders' heads. They serve as "guardrails," allowing everyone to collectively move towards the noble cause in a coordinated way — with a LOT less friction.
Each person has a unique combination of activities that give them power and energy to sustainably do their best work. Opening our batteries to get each person in flow allows everyone to offer their optimal contribution to their team on a regular basis.
We want to be your organization transformation partner.
HOW WILL YOU START?
Everyone begins in a different place — choose your path and learn what it means to be part of the Helios tribe!
Still wrapping your head around this whole thing? No problem! Here's some of our latest and best thinking.

Last week I gave a talk in Los Angeles for International Coaching Week. As I was on the plane flying home I read through my feedback forms, and noticed a couple comments indicating the participants would have liked more examples of workplaces that help people work freely in their strengths. I’ve heard this request a … Read More
