Work as Tribe
Work is no longer just work – at least for many millions of us. The work we do within the organisations and businesses that harness our skills and energies enables our lives, ambitions, and hopes. Our work is also increasingly where we experience the longest periods of sustained human contact. The place we occupy in the team is where we seek to make a positive difference. This nourishes our sense of worth and fuels our need for relatedness. In a time where connectivity and social contact come more and more via a screen, businesses must focus on rebuilding cohesion and trust between team members.
Tickled Pink’s Work as Tribe methodologies examine what employees really value from their work experience and team culture, alongside what they want to contribute. Through a series of live or online workshops, we build a culture blueprint that is complementary to the business vision. Then guide your employees to bring this to life via a team-owned, values-based culture in action. This blueprint is customised to your organisation, and brought powerfully to life with an experiential launch.
Work as Tribe has been applied to organisations in New Zealand and Australia, and acts a powerful reset of your organisational culture that rebuilds team connections after the sustained disruption of the past 2 years.
This side of our work is strongly based on the idea of the Deliberately Developmental Organisation as described in the book ‘An Everyone Culture’ by Kegan and Lahey.
