A Holistic Approach to Productivity
Humans and organizations are multi-faceted by nature. We’ve found that the most effective approach to productivity involves looking at a person or organization as a whole.
This is true, even if the ultimate goal is to focus on a specific area. For example, if you want to increase your productivity at work, it’s important to note that your effectiveness at work will be influenced in a positive or negative way by, for example, your health and your home environment.
What is Productivity?
Simply put, productivity is all about producing the results that you want, either as an individual or as an organization.
To be productive we believe that it’s important to look at the big picture, while also developing structure to support the day-to-day tasks and projects that ultimately bridge the gap between dreams and reality.
The Wheel of Life is a tool we use in coaching to evaluate your current level of satisfaction in various areas of life.
Similarly, when you impact one area of your life in a positive way, this positive impact will also be felt in other areas of your life.
For example, if you’re happy at work you’re more likely to be healthy and happy in your family life. The same philosophy can be applied to organizations.
Even if the goal is to transform a particular department within the organization, it’s important to remember that the people that make up that group exist as part of a larger team.
Any improvements within this department are felt throughout the entire company and the success of this department is influenced by the performance and morale in other areas of the company.
