About WEmindset™ Services.
Getting stuck in a ME mindset.
When we’re stressed we can get stuck in a ME mindset. This is when we go into our own heads and our empathy switch is turned off.
When we focus solely on goals, tasks or stress – we can often overlook the way by which we get there. We value ‘process’ before people. It feels lonely and our decisions begin to come from fear. Our human empathy is switched off, and we cannot read the people around us.
Shifting to a WE mindset.
Workplace Empathy (a WEmindset™) is having a curiosity to understand your own and other people’s experience of the world, and using that understanding to guide your actions at work.
We move into a WEmindset™ when we shift our attention towards meeting everyone’s needs – including our own. When we work from a WEmindset™ our wellbeing and productivity improve, we feel less stressed, and we start to see positive impact upon our life outside of work. Fear is no longer in the driving seat. As teams, we become more confident collaborators – more resilient, and capable of making better decisions.
Where it’s already working.
These are just some of the organizations where the #WEmindset is being spread today:
ME WE Program™.
How to start spreading the WEmindset™ with in your team? The ME WE Program™ begins with one conversation within your team.
This leads to a series of ME WE Program™ activities that take place over a period of 10 weeks. The activities are designed to help individuals reflect on their behavior, and learn about how they are impacting each other.
They focus on how you:
The activities are short, simple and practical, and they can be completed as part of the day to day work. Every two weeks the team comes back together to share the stories of what they’ve learned through the activities.
As more and more teams and leaders come on board with the WEmindset™, a community begins to build within the organization – one that’s spread across all functions (not just the HR department), and is geared towards valuing collaboration over competition.
My hope is that by spreading the WEmindset™, the places where we spend most of our days can promote a healthy work environment – moving beyond seeing our differences as something that sets us apart, and towards seeing them as a way of adding value to organizations.
What people are saying.
Head of Product Management and Lead Product Owner, DWP
"The impact of COVID-19 across the world and in our own communities both at home and in work has highlighted the value and importance of showing/demonstrating empathy towards one another. The ability to listen and genuinely engage is one of our greatest skills, we possibly all know or know of someone that may have lost their life or who has struggled greatly during the period we find ourselves in. By providing a space where people can be themselves, be seen, be heard and listened to is a place we aspire to work towards. The values and beliefs of the ME WE Program enables and provides the framework for organisations to create and recognise 'the' culture and environment we want to work within."
