Untuitive: think differently

Many of the challenges we face at work – whether emotional, relational, or technical – emerge from thinking about problems in a way that doesn’t match the nature of the problems themselves. This set of workshops supports you to think differently. It will open up possibilities, optimism and opportunities for growth.

  • Unlearning 

Humans are creatures of habit- and undoing those habits is the first step to change. 

We explore the neuroscience, psychology and practice of recognising and acting on what needs to be unlearned. 

  • Be more inefficient 

Efficiency is great in light bulbs, but in humans things are far more complex. 

These sessions explore efficiency across economics, history and business science. We show how a more expansive approach can improve relationships, productivity and problem-solving.

  • Occam’s Spoon: the dangers of simplicity 

Making things simple is great if you’re working with genuinely simple problems. But in the working world, a continual desire to simplify risks creating a reductive set of beliefs and practices that just don’t match up to the reality of your situation.

We explore complexity science and human nature to help you and your team navigate the tightrope between simplicity and complexity.  

  • How to let it go 

Change is inevitable, but too often our resistance to it means we miss out on immense learning and growth. Our desire to cling on and keep control means innovation and development is stifled.

In this workshop, we explore how to make change a catalyst for learning, development, and thriving.

Humanagement: lead differently 

Leadership is a vital component of cultural change. But it’s nuanced, sticky, and finely balanced. Most quick-fixes are too broad, too simplistic, and ignore vital nuances on which success is dependent.

Mokita works with leaders to develop approaches to power, management, and progress that navigate these complexities. This creates organisational success and – just as importantly – a kind, honest, humane culture.

  • Taming the Leader, Unleashing the Work

The challenges of management can bring out the worst in us. Without realising, we become micro-managers, bad communicators, and overly self (and other) critical.

We explore the systemic and psychological nature of leadership in your context, helping your team re-think and re-build ways of relating and leading.  

  • SMART Goals – Silly, Myopic, Anal ReTentive

Purpose and shared goals are vital for teams and organisations, and yet – done badly – mirror the behaviours of people in the throes of addiction: narrowing focus, ignoring truths, and creating long-term pain.

Looking at the sociology and neuroscience of motivation, we explore alternative ways of making progress for business and wellbeing.

  • If You’re Right, You’re Wrong –  Contradiction For Better Decision-Making

In a complex, changing world, how do we move forwards when there are no ‘right’ answers?

We use complexity science and psychology to improve conflict, power, and decision-making processes in your context.

  • Dictators, Revolutionaries, and Clowns – Power at Work

Power is the force that gets things done – but can only be optimised if we are having honest, frank conversations about it.

Exploring the impact of diverse forms of power on our brains, behaviours and culture is a necessary step in making best use of it  – building kinder relational dynamics and stronger teams.

Emotion matters: feel differently

Emotion is the fundamental lens through which we experience the world. However, our failure to take this seriously creates endless problems – conflicts, blockages, disengagement and – at worst – misery.

Mokita can help your organisation develop the knowledge, skills, and practices to better understand, work with, and improve the emotional realities of your organisation. This leads to smarter, quicker, and far more rewarding work.

  • Feel Worse at Work

Happiness? Resilience? No – the first step to a healthy environment is working out how to make space for difficult feelings.

Through psychology, philosophy and anthropology, we will consider the emotional norms of your culture and support a more honest, healthy, and accepting space for all emotions

  • Stop Trying So Hard

Perfectionism is linked with a plethora of mental illnesses, yet our drive to ‘do more’ continues.

We explore psychology and sociology to build practices that allow your team to improve – not by doing more, but by making the most of ‘good enough.’

  • Make Yourself Uncomfortable

Discomfort is at the root of so many of our behaviours.  Changing our relationship to it can open up vast amounts of learning, flexibility, and growth.

We explore discomfort through a theoretical and applied lens to support individual and collective change.

  • The Importance of Unprofessionalism

When professional identities aren’t continually re-evaluated, they create rigidity, illusion, and even dehumanisation.

We look at the history and psychology of professionalism to support you to create a more flexible, human, and intelligent workplace.
