The Work Lagoon

Many of us enjoy proximity to water; since ancient times it has been known that water brings well-being and has healing properties.  A lagoon is a good metaphor for the atmosphere in a successful working environment.

The water the workplace, should be rich in oxygen, a transparent and well-functioning ecosystem, where everyone can survive and thrive. In a well-functioning workplace, every person is equally valued irrespective of his role. We all are important to each other, we all have different strengths and we all need support.

Organisations that can see deeper under the surface are able run a better business in this changing world.  Understanding human behaviour helps companies to meet their goals and achieve a competitive advantage.

By exploiting everyone’s strengths we can maximise our performance. The Work Lagoon helps organisations to recognise and take advantage of the resources and capabilities, which their employees possess and, based on that, to create the best performing teams.
