Resilience Power Skills for the Future of Work
Roddy Macmillan Herbert CEO Koru International
"When Resilience Power Skills are used
in a synergetic way, the positive impact
is far greater than just the sum of the
single skills - it is the antidote to poor performing individuals and teams"
Koru International is an international award-winning performance, health and wellness consulting firm specialising in the development of personal resilience. It was founded in 2003, and focuses on empowering individuals and teams by developing the skills and knowledge to flourish during the many changes that the Future of Work will bring. We recognise that individuals will need to be equipped with more than just academic and technical qualifications in order to be more effective in the workplace, where increasing levels of automation, artificial intelligence and robotics are becoming more widespread.
In the Future of Work, individuals need to be charged with a number of key Power Skills so that they can be resilient to pressure and potential overwhelm. These tools will enhance an individual's capability to perform and empower them with inner energy to become healthy, happy and highly productive. These Resilience Power Skills are now a mission critical resource to improve employees' behaviour for the Future of Work within your organisation.
Our CEO, Roddy Herbert, works with multi-cultural and multi-generational audiences in workshops, speaking engagements and executive coaching. He shares the latest science, research and best practice concerning the synergetic use of Resilience Power Skills. On larger corporate projects Roddy also teams up with industry recognised experts who co-present and facilitate with him.
The Resilience Power Skills Synergiser
Before Koru International, Roddy had a successful career with roles on main boards and senior management in the Corporate, SME and 3rd Sectors. He is a certified Mental Health First Aid Trainer and also has professional qualifications in Business Management, Executive Coaching and Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
This mix of experience, professional qualifications and verifiable success gives Roddy a valuable and unique perspective when relating to how Power Skills can be synergised to best effect. As well as working with adults, Roddy is also passionate about harnessing the potential inner energy of students and young children. These new generations entering the Future of Work, through education and experiential learning of key Power Skills, can create a growing society of high performing, healthy, happy intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs. Moreover, Power Skills can encourage and enable future generations to exhibit behaviours that are compassionate, innovative and forward focussed to the benefit of society.
The word Koru is the New Zealand Maori term for a fern plant that has curled up shoots which unfurl to become a leaf in sunlight. It represents encouragement of new growth, life renewal and improvement. Koru International supports clients to successfully embody this metaphor.
