Caring is the new unfair advantage.
As we navigate the digital revolution, workplaces can seem less human, and yet we all yearn to feel accepted for who we are. We want to be part of a supportive team, have a purpose that excites us, and have the opportunity to grow. FactorC is a mathematical term which we apply to address this. It is THE CARE EQUATION. When we apply caring to how we manage and lead, we thrive.
FactorC is designed to be a simple and proven mental health leadership mentor… as close as your phone.
Our program uses THE CARE EQUATION to multiply better outcomes for our leaders via the FactorC app and learning portal. It provides training and the just in time support managers need to help their team and promote psychological safety (proven to be the #1 indicator of high-performing teams).
It delivers data analytics for continual improvement and the identification of trends in your teams, tribes and organisation’s mood.
Managers complete approx. 90 minutes of contact time in the course section of the app. This is made up of interactive micro-learning moments, action-focussed workplace activities and custom content for your organisation. The app embeds Graeme Cowan’s iCARE framework into every day leadership activities, with a micro-credential awarded upon successful completion.
SCENARIOS AND TOOLS
The FactorC app provides just in time, just enough and just for me performance support. It uses an index of short videos, management tools (such as the Moodometer and Action Plans), tips, articles and stories to prepare leaders for uncomfortable conversations e.g. “Is this a mental health or performance management issue?”
Related curated content (videos, podcasts, articles and interviews) provide users a means to explore more. This section is highly customisable for other related wellbeing initiatives or specific content for your organisation.
If you watched the video, you appreciate the size of the mental ill health issues faced by so many people at work. There is massive potential to improve our organisations, both commercially and qualitatively, when our managers are enabled to build caring and resilient teams/cultures.
The Learning Hook joined with Graeme Cowan to co-found the FactorC app and learning portal. Graeme helped start R U OK? Day and after ten years, continues to be an active R U OK? board member and thought leader in mental health and resilience for leaders. For much more detail, visit our brand new FactorC website…
