Performance is driven by behaviour of people.  I worked with a call centre team in April and we improved first call resolution from 33% to 74% in 3 months by changing behaviours and attitude only!! Only 20% of our behaviour is conscious and we are directing it through thinking and reasoning.  This is

Sensory intelligence started in my head in 2000 after I returned from living in the USA for 3 years.  After loads of thinking, reading, more thinking and more reading I chose the name, opened my bank account and produced my first business cards.  Our google searches in 2002 showed no references to sensory

Change in work environments is constant and recurring.  Restructuring of teams, change in business operations and work spaces create uncertainty, stress and resulted performance issues in the workplace. People are different and respond differently to all these changes.  A great and non-threatening way to unpack and understand this and get people to move

Sensory neuroscience is understanding the brain and how it contributes to us working and living on a daily basis. Open plan office and call centre environments are traditionally busy, sensory overloaded, noisy with a high activity level.  The following are simple, yet effective strategies based on how the senses work in the brain at

The trend for the past 35 years in office design is to move towards open plan. It uses space more efficiently and is cost effective. It can be easily reconfigured and reduce construction cost. It further also encourages team work, sharing of information, and is seen as motivational for workers.  Nearly three-quarters of U.S

Sensory defensiveness is the result of aversive or defensive reactions to what most people consider non-irritating sensory stimuli. Due to a low threshold/low tolerance the brain over-responds. It often leads to tension, anxiety, avoidance, stress, anger and even violence. Basic sensations have the potential to put the brain in “high-alert”, which coincides with
