However, the gap between the speed, complexity & magnitude of change and the ability of individuals and organisations to cope in this dynamic and volatile environment continues to widen.

 

Traditional coping strategies -such as working longer, harder and faster- simply fail in today's environment - a fact which conventional education systems fail to address. Crucially, the somatic fight-flight-freeze stress responses triggered by our primeval unconscious brain, designed to keep us safe in case of a tiger attack, are not only utterly inadequate in meeting and overcoming 21st-century challenges but are, in fact, making us ill.

The mismatch between the novel and shape-shifting nature of the external challenges and our brain's instinctive responses, combined with change-resistance and the lack of adequate new change capabilities, is increasingly leading to unsustainable levels of emotional stress and anxiety. 

 

Ever more frequently this results in depression, burnout, trauma, substantially decreased effectiveness and business failure.

4THSolution Workshops, Wingwave & Life Coaching address precisely this gap.

The 4th Industrial Revolution is ushering in change -and challenges- at a pace and scale for which there is no historical precedent. 

 

Revolutionary technologies are dramatically transforming our world; whilst promising vast new potential they also cause enormous disruption affecting all areas of our lives and create an environment of unprecedented complexity, volatility and uncertainty. 

 

As today machines by far outperform humans at any knowledge- or routine-based tasks, countless jobs and entire industries are at risk of becoming redundant and obsolete, new ones -requiring skills for which there is no formalised training- emerge at an unprecedented speed. 

 

Day-to-day business operations no longer fall into a static or predictable pattern. There is no more 'business as usual'. COVID 19 is exacerbating this already volatile situation. 

Today, constant fast-paced and fundamental change and extreme levels of uncertainty are the new normal, leading to an equally fundamental change in the skill set we need to not only survive but thrive. 

 

 

Key competencies & strategies for an agile, resilient and creative 

mindset - increasing the wellbeing success

of individuals & teams

4THSolution Workshops for Corporations -

New Skills for a

New Age

In 4thSolution workshops, individuals & teams learn to develop meta-cognition, mind mastery and new change capabilities which increase their wellbeing, resilience, creativity and productivity in today's highly dynamic and often stressful work environments.


Individuals and teams learn to anticipate and embrace disruption and look for & discover the potential for innovation in unforeseen circumstances. Metacognition and mind mastery enable people to recognise, substantially reduce and avoid unconscious, negative, self-sabotaging and productivity-decreasing responses (such as stress, anxiety, worry, anger, exhaustion, conflict) as well as change-resistant thoughts and habits* - and learn to replace these with new positive and resilience-building competencies and strategies. 

(*In the context of change processes these negative responses can amount to a loss of productivity of over 50%). 

Consequently, the mental & emotional energy and the time previously absorbed by negative re-actions become available for the proactive development of positive solutions & creative new ideas.

Individuals & teams are enabled to think, plan & act at the peak of their abilities, beyond the limits of convention, past experiences, conditionings, habits and routines. 

Increased wellbeing, performance & productivity - without any increase in your time or energy investment. 

Mental agility & space is created for the clear, critical, creative and innovative thinking, that is needed to not only master today's challenges but also tap into & unfold each individual's and the 4th Revolution's full potential.

THE COST OF POOR MENTAL HEALTH

A recent analysis by Deloitte in conjunction with mental health charity Mind (Feb. 2020) has calculated the annual cost to business of poor mental health. The findings are staggering:

  • £42bn to £45bn – annual cost of poor mental health for UK employers each year

  • £6bn or 16% – increase in cost of poor mental health since 2017

  • £7bn – cost of absences due to mental health issues

  • £27bn to £29bn – cost of presenteeism

  • £9bn – cost of staff turnover due to mental health issues

  • 9% – those who disclosed a mental health problem who were dismissed, demoted or disciplined

  • one in six workers will experience a mental health problem at any one time

  • stress is now thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health issues. 

  • the report makes a positive case for employers investing in mental health, with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.

Behind these statistics are the untold stories of the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people - families, partners, children. This exhaustion and depletion of human resources reflect the depletion of our resources in the natural world - of the very foundation of our existence. 

 

Our world of work is not working - neither for businesses nor the people behind them nor for our natural world. It's a situation in which nobody wins. 

The wellbeing of people is the foundation for sustained and sustainable success.

It is a paradox -and exciting- 'side effect' of the 4th Industrial Revolution that it increases the demand for our uniquely human abilities and powers: empathy, value-based decision-making, creativity and autonomous, critical & visionary thinking.

4TH Solution Coaching & Workshops build & nourish these skills.
