Values @ Business:
Reigniting "why", values, and purpose
According to Harvard Business Review, 9 out of 10 people are willing to earn less money for meaningful work.
Meaning-making and doing work linked to our core values is an essential feature of human existence. Proactively reflecting on "why we are doing what we are doing" and aligning our values to work strategy creates a fulfilled personal and professional life.

Reigniting Values in Business
Most of the companies have their values statement written and communicated. However, as the companies grow and the functional landscape changes, the values need to be reassessed and reignited in the organization's DNA. In this program, we work with leadership teams and key stakeholders (internal & external) to reconnect with their values and purpose. Reignited values enable companies to build trusted brands, leading to loyal customers, engaged employees, and aligned shareholders.

TRANSFORMATION MANAGEMENT - 0.5 day
The Why of Transformation
In 2018, businesses spent $1.2 trillion on Digital Transformation. Each program has a "Why" to start, however with time, the focus shifts to "How" and "What" we want to achieve. In this program, we go back to the "WHY?" and understand the meaning and purpose of transformation and design a story for a wider stakeholder group. Providing the convincing "why of transformation" ensures that the leadership team keeps the big picture of the project and connects the wider stakeholders.
WHAT COMPANIES SAY
“We are in the middle of a major transformation. It will have major impact on hundreds of employees. We know how difficult it is to embed change. Hence we invited MQ Learning for a workshop to shape the WHY-story for the transformation. They were able to embed the seed of “meaning” and triggered a strong ownership for the change in the whole leadership-team. I am super grateful for the support and can highly recommend them to make your team even stronger.”
