The organisations, teams and leaders we work with are becoming increasingly aware that many of the conventional approaches to growth, change and development that they’ve been using (and have been investing significant resources in) are not sustainably-effective. The Harvard Business Review tells us why that is:
“For the most part, the millions of dollars organisations spend on learning ($160 billion in the United States and close to $356 billion globally in 2015 alone) doesn’t lead to better organizational performance because people typically revert to their old ways of doing things”– HBR (Oct 2016)
The reason this happens is because the vast majority of the development programmes and initiatives that organisations use to adapt and grow, have not been built on a fundamental understanding of human behaviour – the very thing that needs to be targeted to ensure that people don’t revert to their old ways of doing things.
The Developmentally-FIT© model emerged from a four-year intensive R&D process with teams in New Zealand organisations, exploring how to translate the very latest thinking in behavioural science into practice within the workplace. It has been validated through a continuous process of implementation and user-feedback/refinement and is therefore an evidence-based, best-practice model.
Developmentally-FIT© is a methodology that helps individuals and teams learn how to take responsibility for driving their own long-term growth and development with precision, accuracy and depth, building a successful and meaningful long-term future both for themselves, and for others. Importantly, once someone has developed a Developmentally-FIT© mindset then they have also developed a process mindset setting them up to respond to modern complex work environments with flexibility, agility and innovation.
