"In mid-life, you're beginning to maximise the ability to use the entirety of the information in your brain on an everyday, on-going, second-to-second basis.
Biologically, that's what wisdom is". George Bartzokis, Neurologist
Wisdom. 'The ability or result of an ability to think and act utilizing knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight'.(Collins Dictionary)
We advise you about what your organisation can do to harness the full potential of employees over 50
We Need Wiser, intergenerational organisations
We have Information overload and wisdom scarcity
Technology is advancing at the expense of social skills
We are losing perspective through 'busyness'
Advancing technology is encouraging work overload and anxiety
We have the advantage of an ageing population with the potential for wisdom
Many organisations are missing the opportunity and strength of intergenerational groups working together
Are You Developing Future Strength?
In the next 20 years, we have the advantage of an ageing population with the potential for wisdom and organisations have a unique opportunity to use this ... or not.
We Offer Support in Four Fundamental Areas of Wisdom Development
1. Make changes for employees that will enable wisdom and enhance well being at work Sleep well to work well Maintain and build stronger minds Develop soft skills in leaders
2. Create Leaders as Elders (Employees aged 45+)
The role of Wise Elder has been lost at work but it is important in a human enterprise. All wise people are old but not all old people are wise! Wisdom is a learned characteristic. Intergenerational working depends on employees over 45 developing and contributing their unique wisdom . Many leaders over 45 have the potential for wisdom but have not realised it. We help people who are open to learning make the most of their age and wisdom by developing perspective, emotional and social maturity. This is a skill that younger people cannot offer and is a huge mine of untapped value within most organisations.
These leaders are then able to role model and offer reverse mentoring to others
3. Emerging Leaders Leadership (aged 25- 40)
Building a successful organisation employing four or five generations depends on leadership. We help young people and elders to develop a framework for combining wisdom with the people skills needed for working seamlessly together. The framework is based on self-awareness, social skills, perspective, intuition and character. This builds a life-guidance framework for future wisdom and offers young people meaningful growth and development through their 30's and 40's. Young leaders learn how to work with older and younger colleagues through empathising and being flexible with their diverse needs and capabilities. Workshops and coaching for emerging leaders aged 20 - 35 compliment the work we do with older leaders and set the culture on a path to intergenerational success.
Build leadership confidence in dealing with multigenerational issues
