027 Voices from WorkHuman 2018

Dr. Heidi spotlights some of the interesting conversations captured at Globorce’s WorkHuman 2018 event in Austin, TX.

Kim Christfort, Deloitte Greenhouse Experience Group lead, interacts with senior executives struggling to tackle a variety of business challenges. At their core they often share a common problem: ineffective team dynamics leading to suboptimal engagement, productivity, and performance. Typically at the heart of this problem is a lack of understanding about diverse working styles.

Her team has spent years researching work styles to shed light on how individuals prefer to make decisions, solve problems, work with others, and even respond to stress. In response, we developed and formalized the Business Chemistry® system, which identifies four core work types, flags ways that these different styles can potentially create conflict between individuals and within teams, and puts forward strategies to more effectively adapt and manage these styles day-to-day.

Michael Bush, CEO of Great Places to Work for All, where he leads the global enterprise of more than 50 offices around the world.

Jess Klay, Senior Director of Design & Creative at Globoforce and Andy Swan, Founder of Simple Better Human on creating an amazing workplace and successful organization is a combination of strategy, design and action across people, place and activity. Who you are as an organization and the way you work impacts the type of environments you need to provide to enable everyone in and around your community to thrive. Because when people thrive, the organization thrives too!

This episode is brought to you by my wellbeing tech of choice, Oska Pulse. It has helped relieve my chronic pain caused by Lyme disease so that I can get back to work, and life in general.

Oska Pulse is a Pain Relief and Recovery Device using Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF). It creates an electromagnetic field that pulsates while it modulates the damaged cells to squeeze the toxins out and opens the cells to allow nutrients (potassium, sodium and magnesium) to flow into the cell. The Oska Pulse puts the damaged cells in the best situation to repair themselves and then replicates the electrical signals your body creates to fix the damaged cells.
