As society moved towards knowledge work over the past 5 decades, the ability to understand how a company worked by looking at its assets and physical operations decreased significantly. Services have replaced widgets as the source of value; currently, about 80% of the Fortune 500’s market capitalization is held within intangible goods.
Management that has been anchored to a set of expectations derived from the past has been struggling to keep up with the change from the deterministic complicated models of the past to the probabilistic complex environments that they manage today.
The shortest path to clarity
This change has redefined the needs of the organization and, in order for leaders and peers to understand what is happening around them, requires the operations of your organizations and teams to be seen through a new lens.
Thrive’s ability to create a space for honest, open conversations is the answer to the question “how do I understand the needs and concerns of my coworkers quickly and accurately?”
Thrive uses all of the familiar devices to allow ongoing conversations about important issues while introducing advanced learning techniques and advantages into the process with no required training on those methods.
Thrive guides conversations over a specific time frame in defined and designed intervals that ensure maximum consideration and retention.
How to “see” the change
Thrive’s unique ability to measure underlying levels of confidence, for instance, can show when a group is ready to make a decision. This feedback is represented by a model that is designed to your environment while being grounded in highly validated theories from neuroscience, behavioral economics, and cognitive neuroscience.
We define this type of Thrive model as a “tactical” model. It is designed to emerge from your situation and is tightly contextualized to your content to increase accuracy in the moment and provide the most specific information possible.
The other type of model Thrive provides to our clients is called a “strategic” model, which are universal to all environments and can be very useful as broad indicators of the norms and values that make up the culture of the organization, group, or team.
Some of Thrive’s most powerful Strategic Models are Subjective Well Being (SWB) and Self Determination Theory (SDT).
The Strategic Models are the models with the broadest use; they can be applied horizontally across teams, departments, and organizations and longitudinally across long time frames. These measures are built on solid theories and have been validated as critical measures in the understanding of behavior change.
Measuring What Matters
Thrive’s system makes it possible for people and organizations to incorporate modern methods into their decision making processes that will increase their success rate, reveal the largest practical set of options, and validate assumptions. Thrive can encourage all of this by simply conducting a conversation over time, just like humans always have through evolving media – from paintings on cave walls to dynamic messages that show up in the palm of your hand.
