What people see together, they solve together.
Who doesn't want to work in an organisation where work WORKS well?
A place where people are engaged... where information flows ... where good decisions are made regularly and with ease.
A place where most (if not all) of the time spent working, feels like time well spent.
Flowing together well matters. So maturing connection and collaboration in both people's motivation AND their systems of work is the key.
MANAGEMENT IN ACTION is a partner in this journey: helping people to take a moment to stand back together and genuinely see what they can build together... and then helping in the practical detail of making it their everyday reality.
MIA's in-business services are provided by Jennekin Dicks, a past architect who found herself passionately curious about the impact the systemic reality of a work environment (as opposed to the physical one) has on our collaboration inside and beyond that entity, and what this then means in terms of individual, company and industry achievements.
"HOW we work, is not as simple as a flow-on from WHY we work. There are important realities to deal with in this. Our assumptions and defaults don't always serve us best when we need to act as a group."
Initially focusing on building management systems and upgrading critical processes for mainly design practices (and then a variety of other business types), this work was the beginning of more than a decade of in-business study to understand what works to respectfully and successfully engage people together in a system.
Alongside specialised topic areas, the key outcome was a deep understanding of people in systems, with answers sitting across both the needs of people and the detail of the systemic reality they are in.
Jennekin is a compassionate and detailed thinker who uses visual simplicity to build the bigger picture, creating insights which engage people in impactful conversations and internal development initiatives.
