Organizational Consulting and Facilitation

organizational counseling alchemy of erosIf there’s any area of life where most of us are in need of more Eros, it’s the workplace. So much of our time is taken up by our efforts and needs to make a living, and yet so many of us end up feeling drained, consumed, overwhelmed, or bored by the work we do. This is not only a loss for our own sense of fulfillment and happiness, but companies lose out, too.

Innovation and creativity thrive in environments that allow for a diversity of people, perspectives, and ways of expressing ourselves; places where we can bring our ideas and passions without the fear for repercussions or shaming; teams that are made up of people who know how to build honest and real relationships, resolve conflict, and build on each others’ ideas to create and innovate together; places of work where we can experience a sense of belonging, inspiration and aliveness.

Achieving goals and results, earning an income, fulfilling your ambitions, or having an increased sense of status by climbing the ladder — as much as all of these realms are valid and important — if that’s all there’s to it, then our work life can become boring, draining, and will start to feel meaningless.
