Helping organisations discover the unique & valuable gifts of their Highly Sensitive employees, and guiding them in creating workplaces where they are able to thrive.
Would you like to get the most out of your best workers? What if you could harness the under-utilised capacity of 20% of your workforce?
Every workplace needs a team working at their best. Your Highly Sensitive team members are among your most valuable assets, but often work in environments which make it difficultfor them to flourish. By harnessing the power of their gifts, your organisation can gain the edge it needs for greater success.
What does "Highly Sensitive" mean?
High Sensitivity describes a temperament shared by 20% of people (around 1 in 5) and many animal species. Highly Sensitive people are very responsive to their environment. They are aware of subtleties and take in much more than others through their senses, then process this information deeply.
People with this temperament are an important part of a healthy population, because they demonstrate valuable gifts which enhance a society's success. These include a high degree of conscientiousness, insight, creativity, and wisdom. They are skilled at seeing connections, noticing dangers & opportunities, andunderstanding others.
Because the term Highly Sensitive tends to be misunderstood, and the word sensitive has some negative connotations, I also use the terms High Sensory, (Highly) Responsive (used by biologists), and High Sensory Intelligence / Highly Sensory Intelligent (coined by Willow MacIntosh of Inluminance) interchangeably.
Highly Sensitive people are 'intuitive visionaries, able to see the big picture, creative, aware of and thoughtful to the needs of others, good influences on the social climate, vigilant with quality, highly conscientious, loyal, able to pick up on subtleties in the environment and in interpersonal communications, and are often gifted. In short, they are ideal employees'
(Elaine Aron, The Highly Sensitive Person, 1991).
Who doesn't want such people on their team?!
You could have a workplace where High Sensory people are thriving, able to give their best, with greater productivity and effectiveness for all. Do you have the right conditions, physical and otherwise, in your workplace, for the High Sensory people on your team to thrive?
I consult with medium-sized organisations to help in this process.
I take assessments of the physical environment and workplace processes, then give recommendations for adjustments which will help Highly Responsive team members to best utilise their gifts.
I also provide workshops, including workshops tailored for schools. Please see Services for an overview and links to specific services, or below if you want to go straight to an individual service (also available in top menu).
