It's time 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.
HELIOS OFFERS A NEW
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.
The idea of having “company values” is nothing new. In fact, these days, it’s downright rare to come across an organization without them, even if the organization is very small. But the near-ubiquitousness of company values seems to be equally matched with the unsureness leaders have around how to actually make them useful in practice. … Read More
Culture is complex. By its very definition, “culture” is almost unreasonably complicated — read just a few lines in a dictionary, and you’ll quickly trip over phrases like “manifestations of human achievement regarded collectively.” Oof. Complex. The intricate nature of “culture” itself is actually one of its largest challenges, as its complexity makes it difficult … Read More
It was a morning like most weekday mornings, which is to say everyone in my family was running around trying to get ready to leave the house. And as you may know, some mornings are better than others when it comes to little kids listening versus dawdling — this particular morning was kiddo procrastination in … Read More
