From Dissonance to Resonance

Bringing Your People and Organization Into Synch

by Cecile Alper-Leroux View author's profile page

Overview

Today, we increasingly find our organizations and workplaces are out of sync with the expectations and desires of our people, contributing to flat employee engagement, increased turnover and workforce instability. This is due in part to the way work is performed and our enduring beliefs about the work constructs at play in our organizations. As a result, the technologies, tools, systems, and process flows in our workplaces are no longer in tune with our natural frequencies. Resonance in the context of work describes a vision of a world in which people's experience at work resonates deeply with new ideas, changing norms, and new technologies, to the great benefit of organizations and people. (2nd Edition, May 2019) Proceeds after covering the cost of publication will be donated to organizations supporting up-skilling in the workplace.
