A question of change

Article by Doula Theodosi, Return to Work Consultant, nb&a group
Published via LinkedIn

Looking back at the article published on Influencing Return to Work (October 2015), we explored asking great questions and the reasons why this is important.

We also acknowledge that, as leaders and managers, we are developing and assisting people to be the best they can be in their practice to achieve return to work outcomes.

Our position is often underpinned by the habits and patterns of behaviour we adopt, where sometimes we associate our success with habits that don’t necessarily work well. We become very comfortable with what we know and do in practice. At times, this prevents us from driving our own continuous improvement and assisting others to do the same, and compromises our potential.

nb&a supports 'butterfly children' through DEBRA Australia Ltd

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare, debilitating and sometimes fatal skin blistering disease. Suffers of the disease are commonly referred to as 'butterfly children' due to their delicate skin resembling the delicate wings of a butterfly.

DEBRA Australia Ltd is a volunteer-based organisation which relies on donations and grants to deliver programs and provide best-quality support and medical care to people living with EB.

nb&a are supporting DEBRA Australia Ltd to help them continue their fabulous work in this area.
