What is HUMAN AND ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE?
At it's core, Human & Organizational Performance is a fundamental shift in how we view people – it is the move away from viewing people as a problem to be managed, and the shift towards viewing people as problem solvers. HOP is an operating philosophy that teaches us that error is normal, blame fixes nothing, context drives behavior, learning is vital, how we react matters, and that organizational approaches and tactics counter to these beliefs often move us away from the so needed learnings we require to innovate and improve, and hinder our ability to be transformational leaders.
HOP IS Built on 5 key principles
Error is normal
Blame fixes nothing
Context drives behavior
Learning is vital
Leadership response matters
Our Approach focuses on operationalizing HOP through 10 actionable ideas...
Start from a place of trust
Do things with people
Learn deliberately & often from those nearest to the work
Pain points are starting points
Become obsessed with the things that matter
More tools, less rules
Stop trying to comply (or punish) your way to excellence
Give up on "safety fortunetelling"
