Services and Support for Your Team or Organization

Results Washington is committed to making government more human. That begins with a fundamental commitment to helping Washington State Government agencies cultivate more human-centered organizations based on decreasing fear and increasing love in the workplace toward each other and toward Washingtonians we serve.

Consulting and Coaching

Everyone needs a sounding board. And maybe a little more. Sometimes you need someone with organizational expertise who will ask you thoughtful questions and really listen to understand what’s going on. It helps to explore research, practical frameworks, and realistic options so you can make a plan for moving forward. We can help you with a conversation, an exploratory facilitation, or a planning retreat. And we can partner with your internal staff and leaders to complement human-centered initiatives already under way.

 

Keynote Talk: Make Work More Human

What does it take to create a government workplace where the public is satisfied and public servants can truly thrive? It takes a radical transition from a fearful workplace to a loving workplace. Love? Yes love. In government? Yes in government.

Based on insights from 50+ research interviews and sharing practical experiences of real leaders and teams, learn what it means to make work more human. In this talk, Renee provides practical guidance to create a workplace where team members have a deeply gratifying work experience and deliver exceptional value for customers. 

  • Hear stories describing the sobering impacts of fear.

  • Be inspired by the results achieved in more loving, human-centered workplaces.

  • Understand the crucial difference between accountability and responsibility.

  • Learn how state government agencies are working to put this into practice each day. 

  • Learn more about A Human Workplace gatherings and advocacy

  • Walk away with practical strategies for leaders and for teams to make work more human.

 

A Human Workplace Workshops

We offer interactive, high-engagement facilitated workshops to explore your team’s questions and roadblocks. We help teams make breakthrough progress by facing their legitimate concerns and curiosities to become a human-centered organization. This is no canned, one size fits all product. Rather, we take the questions, concerns, and challenges your organization is facing and use those as a jumping off point to make real, lasting progress on the road to making your government organization more human.

Some workshop titles include:

  • Bring Your Whole Self to Work

  • Does Love Belong at Work?

  • What’s at the Center of Your Work and Why It Matters

  • Running the Business of Government

  • Put Love in Action at Work

 

Learning and Development Options

We can point you to sources for learning and consulting services to expand on what we offer such as:

  • Leadership Development Options from the Department of Enterprise Services

  • Employee and Team Development Options from the Department of Enterprise Services

  • Contracted Vendors readily available through the DES Government to Government Consulting contract

 

Human Resources Tools and support

It makes sense to hire new team members and leaders who will be contributors to a human workplace rather than hiring new employees or leaders who don’t actually share human-centered values. Soon we will make available resources and tools like language for job descriptions, search committee questions and criteria, on-boarding practices, and professional development plan suggestions.
