navigating conflict with claudia butler
It might surprise you, but Claudia says we should be aiming to navigate, not eradicate workplace conflict. “You want people to disagree, not to be of the same opinion. You want people to challenge each other and not just say yes to everything. The evidence shows us that that is ultimately creating much healthier and better outcomes. But how to do that well?’
building cultural alignment
On Tuesday 20 August, Helen Rees presented on behalf of the Change Management Institute on Building Cultural Alignment.
She says, “Cultural alignment is the hardest but most powerful thing for organisations to develop. Culture resides in teams. Organisational alignment is based on building a network of communication and consistency across those teams.” Our challenge now is how best to go about this.
LEADERSHIP: IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK...
Having recently returned from study at the Harvard Kennedy School, Helen shares her thoughts from her inspired time whilst attending the Art and Practice of Leadership Development (APL) programme led by Professor Heifetz.
BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS - KNOW YOUR STYLE
26 SEPTEMBER 2019
In this thought-provoking interactive workshop, leadership consultant Nicki Hayward unpacked our natural behavioural styles and the intentions behind our behaviours in the workplace. We learned better ways of dealing with the people we don’t naturally get along with, built tools to identify personality styles, and gained a better understanding of how to interact with each other to achieve a better result.
If you want to problem solve... put those phones away!
There is now a plethora of research showing the cost of being part of this permanently connected world.
Why workplaces don't work… and what to do about it.
Sometimes it seems that if you wanted to design a workplace where people can't do their best work, you would design the 9-5 office model.
On Completion and Renewal
As we come to the chaotic end of the year, when everything has to be done, it becomes too easy to lose sight of the big picture. When we are caught up in the minutiae everything becomes urgent. We lose sight of what we have achieved and think only of what is still to be done.
Frameworks’ senior consultant, Claudia Butler, is now a certified Map of Meaning practitioner. She is only one of 19 practitioners worldwide, and one of six in Australia.
The Map of Meaning is a powerful research based framework that can be used by individuals, teams and organisations to create successful workplaces. It brings onto one simple diagram all the dimensions of intrinsic motivation. It gives a lens through which we get a sense of understanding and control. The Map helps us to stay inspired, whilst dealing with whatever reality we are facing. It reminds us of what matters most, releases our own wisdom and leads to practical steps.
Claudia is specialised to use the Map in the context of planning the future, managing diversity and resolving conflict.
Contact us to find out how the Map of Meaning can contribute to your workplace culture.
More than enough managers, but where is the management?
For many years now, we have been seeing this push to leadership. It's been the new black for quite some time and we see a massive amount of resources thrown into leadership programs. But, I wonder... are leadership programs delivering the results we want, or are we missing the point?
What is conflict doing to your workplace?
If we allow unresolved issues to fester we develop a toxic relationship culture. This becomes a perfect breeding ground for bullying behaviours. How can we avoid being sucked into such an unhealthy dynamic?
WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE
Frameworks has come a long way since its inception in 2003 and changed even more in the past few years since we set up an office in town. Then it was Marg and I and the Frameworks brand was largely about the consulting work one person could do. Since then we have grown and morphed into something different...
