Safely sharing employee spirituality in the workplace can increase performance and their perspective of an organization.
The Drexler/Sibbet team performance model (A comprehensive tool for understanding the stages of team development developed by Allan Drexler and David Sibbet) identifies seven stages which teams move through to be highly productive. Two of these stages which I often reinforce in my corporate training deal with trust and renewal. We focus on trust in Stage 2. This is learning to trust yourself (your own inner wisdom) and trusting others. Trust in the workplace is critical to being engaged and feeling good about the work environment. Another important stage which is often overlooked in the workplace is Stage 7, focusing on renewal. We identify how we evaluate and renew after a project is completed. How well organizations plan for this aspect of each work strategy and outcome is a good indication of how well they nurture team member. Without renewal, we push employees to burnout or shut down and ultimately low production.
