Wisdom is the ability to take the right decisions and actions in each situation with kindness and compassion
We Need More Wisdom
We have Information overload and wisdom scarcity
Technology is advancing faster than social and human skills
Advancing technology encourages work overload and stress
Hello, my name is Janis Grummitt I have spent over 30 years working with leaders and cultures to create practical wisdom in all types and sizes of organisations. I have worked and studied in the UK, Europe, Japan, USA, Australia and New Zealand. I am a qualified Social Anthropologist. Ten years ago, after several brain operations I needed to regenerate my brain. I started to learn how simple it is to maintain and build a strong brain that is ripe for wisdom in middle age and beyond. I continue to research and build my knowledge of our most amazing free device, the brain. Today I work in my community helping others build better, wiser brains and I use all my learning about our brain's potential and practical ways to use it in my leadership programmes with organisations. This year I am combining and sharing all my accumulated experience and learning though five programmes. In my experience these five areas are fundamental to creating Wise Leadership and Wise Cultures.
Wisdom is the Holy Grail for Organisation Development today, it can transform a culture but it cannot be taught. However, it can be guided within a framework for growth.Through this process, each person chooses the right direction to find their own personal and unique wisdom within the culture of a wiser organisation. Wisdom is physically age regulated in stages by our brains but does not develop without work. We help to ignite and accelerate that process in five fundamental areas of development. We also choose the best time for age related brain development to avoid wasted energy.
Five Fundamental Areas for Wisdom Development
1. Emerging Leaders (aged 25- 40)
Wisdom is a learned characteristic. We help young people (25 - 40yrs) to develop a framework for wisdom. This framework is based on self awareness, social skills, intuition and character.
2. Leaders as Elders (aged 50+)
Many leaders over 50 have the potential for wisdom but have not realised it. We help people who are open to learning can make the most of their age and contribute wisdom. This is a contribution that younger people cannot offer.
3. Soft Skills for Hard Roles (all ages)
People who are highly skilled in technical areas usually have an intellectual focus. The brain builds more cerebral connectivity and specialists in areas such as engineering, accounting, and IT are unlikely to develop softer people skills. We help them to find the balance to attain extraordinary wisdom.
4. Renewable Energy at work (all ages)
Time is finite but energy is infinite. Many people are failing to take advantage of their personal renewable energy source leading to stress and lower performance. We help uncover each person's available source of renewable energy.
5. Creating Collective Wisdom in Key teams - Executives and Boards (all ages)
Some teams have a significant impact on all others in an organisation through their influence and role modelling. The collective wisdom of Boards and Executive teams affect everyone else. We help key teams work together with more wisdom.
