Social Sensemaking Program
The team at Dolphyn continue our work with BlueScope, piloting our Social Sensemaking program across sites in NSW and QLD.
We start with the MiProfile Survey (developed by Dr Rob Long, see – https://www.humandymensions.com/services-and-programs/miprofile/) which helps us better understand how sites or the organisation as a whole, think collectively and unconsciously.
Rob Sams, along with Gab Carlton from Resilyence (https://resilyence.com/) who has many years experience in conducting the survey, work with Hayden Collins from Risk Intelligence (https://www.riskintelligent.com.au/our-people), who’s analytical and critical thinking skills mean that we can challenge assumptions and support organisational learning through conducting the survey.
The outcomes of the Mi-Profile are then presented to the site along with recommendations for a tailor made program that is aimed to address challenges, and support strengths, identified within the organisation. These programs are delivered by Dolphyn’s experience team who all have post-graduate qualifications in The Social Psychology of Risk.
One of the keys to the success of our program with BlueScope is the upskilling of their internal team as we progress through it. BlueScope’s leading manager on the project, Stephanie O’Dwyer, who is now studying with the CLLR (https://cllr.com.au/), has been co-facilitating many of the workshops with Rob Sams. This provides a more holistic learning and change program for BlueScope that will also ensure its sustainability.
Stephanie recently started a session in Brisbane by asking; “what’s the riskiest thing you’ve done?”.
The learning started from there.
