Increased resilient responses in majority of staff on post assessment.

The Challenge

Kate Burke of Thinkagri used the R@W Individual Scale when consulting to a small not for profit cropping company undergoing major structural and strategic change. The workforce was unsettled by the changes and there was a lack of cooperation and high levels of stress.

The engagement

All staff took the R@W Individual Scale as  part of a full day workshop and developed action plans. Each team member was supported with a one on one session and some members received mentorship and coaching over the next 10 months. The scale was repeated to 12 months later and a refresher was provided.

The impact

On re-assessment, the majority of participants were functioning at a more resilient level, particularly those who had received coaching. A cultural shift from blame to personal responsibility was also evident and the staff were more united and better able to manage with the disruption caused by a change in CEO. The work became a catalyst for other team development workshops and a team charter was developed.
