What is TrailPaths…
TrailPaths is a community that is focused on the “People and Human” side of the future of work, the future of leadership and the future of workforce development. We are a group of like-minded practitioners who want to trailblaze the paths that will allow organizations and individuals to develop, engage within and sustain meaningful environments. This work is looking into the past, present and future to disseminate and leverage our collective lessons learned while attempting to build meaningful work environments guided by principles of Dignity and Respect.
What we believe
Technologies and changing population demographics will change the way we do work. Therefore, workforce development, work design and leadership strategies need to be modernized.
People have choices relative to where they work. People are no longer satisfied working in environments that are not meaningful.
The future will be about meaningful cultures, where cultures are founded on principles of dignity, respect and the uniqueness of all individuals.
Therefore, we need to:
Develop organizational cultures that are built within the fundamental principles of dignity, respect and meaningful environments.
Build Human Resource structures and processes that recognize the uniqueness of the individual.
Create organizations that are based on the principle of One System – One Team.
Support and teach people to fully engage within this new One System – One Team environment .
