Shift your mental models transform your organization

Are you leading in a crisis with an aware state of mind?

There is no greater time to understand how a person’s mental models (the minds toolbox for understanding life, making decisions and solving problems) could be affecting business performance.

Taking the time to analyse mental models will help business leaders understand why they think, behave and react in a certain way, and how that mental framework plays a profound role on decision-making processes, productivity and the outcomes of their company.

Our Mental Models Strategy programme will take place from 7 to 9 October 2020, Reserve your seat today.

Covid-19 has propelled the necessity of OSH into the organizational spotlight. While in recent years, Health and Safety philosophies have lauded holistic cultural change and leadership of care rather than compliance, the pandemic shifts this evolution into high gear. But what does the evolution look like in practice?
