Unlock the Full Human Potential of Your Company
In this blog, we will be discussing the fifth stage of our work readiness model: Kinetic Performance™.
Aduro’s Work Readiness Model™
The Work Readiness Model comprises five stages of “readiness” starting with “Not Ready” and ascending all the way to “Kinetic Performance,” which is a sustainable level of peak performance for individuals, teams, and the company as a whole.
Stage Five: Kinetic Performance
In Stage 5, either the spread of COVID-19 has been contained, or we have moved on to a “new normal” defined by a strategy to “coexist” with the virus. Regardless of progress on treatments or vaccines, at some point in the future we will know with greater certainty what we are dealing with and how we must adapt in both our personal and professional lives. At that time, there will be a significant shift from crisis management to performance management. Companies and workers alike will say, “We know more now than we did then, and we have a unique opportunity to emerge better and stronger than before.”
The goal of stage five is to return to pre-COVID-19 levels of individual, team, and company performance.
In Stage 5, companies and workers alike will say, “We know more now than we knew then and we have a unique opportunity to emerge better and stronger than before.“
Stage 5 represents a full restoration of the aspirational energy that drives great performance. People will crave resources and guidance to unlock their full potential, both in their personal and work lives, and will need help shifting gears to an optimistic outlook.
Companies that are committed to building a culture of sustainable peak performance — what we refer to as Kinetic Performance — must stop thinking about well-being as a loose category of “nice to have” tools and techniques (like meditation apps and weight loss programs) that may improve employee engagement. Rather, companies must embrace the philosophical and cultural shift that peak performance is rooted in holistic well-being.
That means elevating the conversation within your company from wellness interventions focused on individuals to a peer-connected network focused exclusively on maximizing human potential. We do this by empowering managers to deliver effective coaching alongside a mix of well-being tools that address every dimension of work-life satisfaction.
In the Kinetic Performance stage, a holistic approach to building a culture of sustainable peak performance should include solutions for:
- Health surveys
- Behavioral health coaching
- Well-being resources
- Peer-connected well-being network
- Manager-led coaching support
Are You Stage Five Ready?
At some point in the future, we will know with greater certainty what we are dealing with and how we must adapt in both our personal and professional lives to the COVID-19 pandemic. After struggling with when and how to reopen physical locations, support the psychological well-being of employees through a phased return to work, sustaining support for mental health, and bringing pre-pandemic individual and company performance back, you’ll be ready for pursuing the aspirations of peak performance.
We created Aduro’s Return-to-Work Handbook to offer practical guidance on what should be considered when deciding when and how to reopen your offices all the way to regaining aspirations of peak company performance. We hope you find it to be one valuable source among many to help guide your decisions during one of the most challenging times in world history.
