Getting growth right with East of England Local Government Authority
Local Authorities face many challenges in the current climate and the East of England Local Government Authority is meeting these head on. The organisation held an inspiring conference for its teams and invited Laughology along to deliver sessions addressing growth mindset, happiness in organisations and FLIP.
The past five years have seen a shift in understanding of how people learn and develop new skills. We now know that all brains have the same ability to learn new skills, which means everyone has the capacity to develop and grow. Development is one of the key indicators of happiness in organisations and so, to create happy organisations, leaders need to look at how to help their people develop. Everyone learns differently and the key – as our sessions explained – is to identify the right learning process for the right person and to support that person in learning new skills. Getting growth right pays dividends in terms of engagement, happiness and well-being.
At the event we also presented a workshop on FLIP and how to utilise it to reframe challenges, create a growth mindset and use it as a coaching and mentoring tool.
