The 4E’s human change principles

In our experience, people can only truly align and engage with an organisation strategy or culture change initiative where they are properly supported along the journey. 

But what does this mean in practice? It’s more than just briefing people at your team meeting, or setting up some training sessions. 

To achieve culture alignment throughout the organisation, in every team, division and location, the 4 principles of Educating, Engaging, Empowering and Enabling people are key to success:

Educate
Providing people with the understanding and rationale behind actions.

Engage
Ensuring individuals are motivated and support the organisation in a positive way. 

Empower
Encouraging employees to take ownership and responsibility.

Enable
Creating the environment and structures to ensure people take action.

Our 3-stage methodology is our go-to tool for creating cultures for business success.

The GC Index® 

The GC Index® is a unique way of measuring how individuals and teams impact and contribute to your business. Standard personality or people diagnostic tools cannot measure what The GC Index® measures, which is why we use this method when working with clients.

The GC Index® is based on a common language and framework. It identifies five key ways in which people can make an impact to a role, team and/or organisation. These are:

The strategist
The game-changer
The play-maker
The implementer
The polisher  

This method is the world’s first Organimetric – it connects people and business with data that organisations have not had before. It enables leadership teams to align their organisation to the business objectives,  and helps people articulate where they want to make an impact and contribution – and where they don’t.

Psychological Safety Index

Psychological Safety (PS) is the belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. This is the definition of Professor Amy Edmondson at Harvard Business School, who has been researching and teaching how the effect of psychological safety, or rather the absence of it, affects performance and effectiveness in teams and organisations for over 30 years.

The other 4 factors (Dependability, Structure & Clarity, Meaning and Impact) only proved to be valuable when a team is psychologically safe. Research has shown that of the five key dynamics of effective teams, Psychological Safety is by far the most important. 

We use this method when working with clients to gain insight into an organisation’s culture. We are huge advocates for this approach, and our own team have undergone the Psychological Safety process.
