We want you to take an
ENERGY-BASED APPROACH TO WORK*
✱This is how you help people #lovework
THE WAY WORK HAPPENS IS
And we know we need to evolve, but 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" (OS) OF HOW WE WORK.
Our organizations are running the equivalent of Windows 95 — which is CRAZY in an iOS/Android world.
The Helios Approach offers an Energy-Based Operating System (ebOS) — and it's revolutionary.
THE FUTURE OF WORK IS HELIOCENTRIC
The Helios Approach gives us a new way to work —
one that GIVES people energy (instead of sucking it out).
How much more will our organizations achieve when every person
is working on things that make them energized and at their best?
Put energy at the center of the way you work —
you won't believe the amazing new conversations
and ideas that start to happen.
How do we "install" an ebOS?
Organizations today are feeling similar pains, but the entry point to "install" an ebOS varies. What's something people-related that senior leaders care about and has a strong business case for addressing? That's where we start.
Don't try to boil the ocean; we just need to get started and run an experiment together. What's a project that can be moved forward quickly? An energy-based organization has a strong bias for action.
Together, we discover what's working, what's not, and evolve your processes and systems toward what IS working. This approach moves you quickly towards the desired state, and provides a strong natural "gravitational pull."
As quickly as possible, we enroll influential change leaders in the Helios Launch experience. Ideally, this includes both HR leaders and team leaders, providing them with the full ebOS Helios Toolkit.
After the Launch, HR and team leaders are supported every step of the way via the monthly Helios Academy on Zoom, a Dropbox full of resources and tools, and ongoing access to Helios advisors.
You can start to "hack" and replace an old organizational OS with just three things...
A "noble cause" with enough gravitational, magnetic power to serve as everyone's singular boss
Collectively-agreed-upon principles allowing people to move toward the noble cause without friction
Open each person's battery to get them in "flow" and offer their highest and best contribution
Still wrapping your head around this? No problem! Here's some of our latest and best thinking.
Burnout at work is quite literally everywhere. Perhaps you read the recent article in The Washington Post, or saw how companies are adopting four-day workweeks to try to combat this problem, or checked out the piece in BuzzFeed about how Millennials are “the burnout generation.” Or maybe you just looked in the mirror, or into … Read More
I love creating learning experiences. When I stumbled into this line of work many years ago, I had no idea this was even a “thing” a person could do as a career, but it’s turned out to be a deeply fulfilling fit for my strengths. We’ve been the official certifying body for Strengthscope® in the … Read More
Performance is an important topic in most workplaces. Presumably, there’s a fairly typical, usually implicit, assumption that when you come to work, you’re going to perform your best. Companies spend massive amounts on “performance management” programs, compensation plans, feedback technologies, and incentive structures, all in the name of — you guessed it — greater performance. … Read More
