With the pace of change at an unprecedented level,
elephants (i.e. the unspoken) are present more frequently due to
uncertainty and fear in change.
It's how we approach the elephant that shifts it from being a threat to a gift...
And, the power is in our hands!
The threat of the elephant in times of change.
It's far more than just an awkward moment in a meeting...
The unknown is filled with assumptions.
Assumptions are biased by our own narratives.
In uncertain environments,
our narratives are commonly fear-based.
Fear drives contracting behaviours.
Disconnection, withdrawal of effort, stress, skepticism & suspicion, feeling unsafe and untrusting, protectiveness, resignation to dysfunctional patterns, reactive vs responsive.
Contracting behaviours negatively impacts bottom line.
Loss of productivity, revenue & profit, decreased new idea generation, increased errors & risk, lower quality of client service delivery, increased absenteeism & staff turnover.
The unspoken is the unknown.
Let's open the gift of the elephant together.
Hi, my name is Veronica.
I help work teams uncover untapped potential. To co-create the culture they want to be part of through opening up new human, heartful dialogue and practices that shifts habits.
Teams embrace the elephant in the room through curiosity, compassion and courage. They shift from fear, mistrust and limited performance to safety, trust and collaborative empowerment.
I believe the metaphorical elephant finds itself present in our workplaces at different times for different reasons - it's part of being human and a natural part of the change process.
It is the necessary messiness that creates shared clarity. The releasing of control to enable true innovation, collaboration and growth.
Like any skill, I believe teams can consciously learn and practice ways of working together where the unspokens can shift from feeling like a threat to being an opportunity.
“Veronica’s openness, honesty and raw display of vulnerability through her programme was exactly what our team needed to help bring out the best in our individual and collective selves. Being collegiate takes courage and the trust and support that Veronica conveyed through the process was central to helping us develop positive change.
