Whitespace offers advisory sessions for both corporate groups and individual executives, who need to confront and indeed, ‘metamorphise’ into a happy and productive entity. Metamorphosis comes from the Greek, μεταμόρφωσις, to transform, transforming. This is not the typical ‘embrace change’ and ‘overcome team resistance’ to new corporate strategies, but an emotional inventory of the upsets caused by our human proclivity to maintain the homeostatic balance, in other words, stay the same.
”There is nothing permanent except change” HERACLITUS 4BC
Whitespace believes that business leaders need help to successfully ‘change often’ and we use the term ‘metamorphise’ because, like the biological transformative process from tadpole to frog or catepilllar to butterfly, executives need to address their natural emotional resistance to change and embrace their new responsibilities in order to expand their effectiveness. The transformation required from executives who need to confront the increasingly frequent corporate events of downsizing or mergers with the accompanying change of reporting lines and critical objectives is always challenging.
Whitespace combines group exercises with individual consultations in order to build consensus, as well as, understand particular feelings, which may impede a successful transition. Our methodology allows your key executives to articulate and confront their emotions, which promotes a successful transition. Many times an executive’s personal life may carry over to the workplace and tragic events at home such as divorce and death as well as, the more mundane household changes may prevent the required executive metamorphosis. The confidential and safe environment of Whitespace will mitigate the upsets and resistance, which may be unseen and hidden from senior management.
Whitespace will review and refine the key objectives for your management team. The clarity and definition of the corporate priorities is always more acceptable when delivered from an experienced, objective Whitespace professional. We would be pleased to design a bespoke program to your budgetary and time requirements.
