A Learning Platform to Develop 21st Century Transferable Soft Skills

20th century legacy includes fixed mindsets, organisational hierarchies, bureaucracy slowness and risk aversion. All this negatively impacts creativity and processes that results in slow improvement.

Individuals, teams and organizations are not keeping up or ready for the critical changes.

We discovered that most of us want to spend more time on meaningful work and work with teams that are engaged in making that happen. Projects where our skills and practice strengths are working well together that encourage us to learn, improve and thrive.

This is a book about how we can take ownership of ourselves, our team and our organisation by taking micro actions to shape the desired culture and behaviours to insert meaning into what we do.

Three Pillars to Make Meaningful Work

In this course, you will learn the connections of 1. Character refers to the values and moral qualities that act as our inner compass. Character is made of the traits that describe who you are. 2. Leadership does not come from title or ranking alone. Everyone can embody a leadership spirit and this can manifest in different forms, times and places (Contextual Leadership).  3. Culture is made up of the interactions and relationships between people at work.

Enhancing Cognitive Adaptability to Lead Innovative Cultures

In this course you will learn how to spot the transferable soft skills (practices) that you need to enhance, practice effectively using contextual micro actions to “insert meaning using practices to the moments that matter” at work based on the Make Meaningful Work book’s framework and tools.
