Optimise team performance by giving voice to the unspoken.
Explore the elephant™
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...
In uncertain environments,
our narratives are commonly fear-based.
Disconnection, withdrawal of effort, stress, skepticism & suspicion, feeling unsafe and untrusting, protectiveness, resignation to dysfunctional patterns, reactive vs responsive.
Fear drives contracting behaviours.
Assumptions are biased by our own narratives.
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.
The unknown is filled with assumptions.
Let's open the gift of the elephant together.
Hi, my name is Veronica.
I help work teams shift from ignoring to exploring the unspoken enabling increased trust, collaboration, innovation and bottom line results.
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.
