Imagine a world where every one of us can come to work as our authentically human best self — and can bring our best self home each day.
This vision is possible -- and desperately needed! Our new book details 5 Key Rehumanizing Principles, our framework for restoring hope, wellbeing, and performance in the workplace.
Our rapidly changing world is becoming increasingly complex and disruptive. While it brings many opportunities for innovation, it also triggers people to operate from a place of scarcity and self-protection, creating disconnection and eroding wellbeing – for both organizations and individuals.
Workplaces have become increasingly dehumanized and are now the 5th leading cause of death in the United States.
The good news is that there is a revolution already underway where organizations are breaking the mold and finding success by honoring what it means to be human.
Rehumanizing the Workplace highlights some of these organizations and provides actionable suggestions for how everyone – regardless of their role or title – can show up as a leader and influence positive change.
“An important and engaging guide to building workplaces that work in the modern world. The five rehumanizing principles are compelling and actionable.”
~Amy C. Edmondson, Professor, Harvard Business School and author of The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation and Growth
“Rich with ideas, richer with practical steps, it’s a worthwhile read. But beware, you might run out of reasons to avoid bringing more humanity into your own business.”
~Wendy Lynch, PhD. Co-founder, the Heart of Human Capital Blog. Co-author, Get to What Matters: Tools to Transform Conversations at Work
“…let this book guide you in building a team or company through which people have the opportunity to become their best selves!”
~Bob Chapman, author of Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring for Your People Like Family & CEO, Barry-Wehmiller
“Imagine using words like ‘compassion,’ ‘purpose,’ and ‘belonging’ to describe your culture. Imagine a workplace where you deeply trust the people around you. Rehumanizing the Workplace teaches us how to create this kind of world.”
~Kristen Hadeed, Founder of Student Maid and Author of Permission to Screw Up
THE 5 KEY REHUMANIZING PRINCIPLES
1. Build a Lighthouse. Illuminate and clarify for employees the organization’s purpose, vision, and core values
2. Create fearless environments where people feel safe and supported to take the risks required to do transformative work.
3. Wade in the messy middle. Embrace change knowing growth comes at the edge of discomfort.
4. Show up as a leader, regardless of your title. Leadership is a behavior, not a role.
5. Find your tribe to build connection and community. People are more likely to support what they help create.
Rehumanizing the Workplace is published by Conscious Capitalism Press. Thriving workplace cultures are an important start in moving away from old paradigms, but truly advocating for more humanity at work can help elevate all business. It was this shared value that made Conscious Capitalism the perfect partner to help bring our latest book to life.
Is your organization a place where people want to come to work?
In our first book, published in 2014, we challenge the status quo and reveal fresh, new thinking about why workplaces have been stuck when it comes to organizational and employee wellbeing.
