Anna McGrath Shares Essential Steps Companies Must Take to Move Beyond Emotional Intelligence to Whole Body Wisdom

A new collaborative book by members of the “Great Work Cultures” (GWC) movement aims to transform organizations and create more humanistic environments for employees to work in. Joan Blades, a prominent activist for positive change who launched the movement, praises the contributors to the book as “brilliant innovators and leaders who know how to structure workplaces that sing”.

Statistics show that the average worker is disengaged and that most workplace productivity is a fraction of what it could be. Members of the GWC movement believe, however, that workplace environments which are deeply respectful of all workers will be productive and experience very low turnover. This book is an outcome of their intention to accelerate positive change at work.

In this interview, book contributor, Anna McGrath, discusses her chapter, “Beyond Emotional Intelligence to Whole Body Wisdom”. Since 2003, Anna McGrath has supported organizations globally to build response-agility into their cultures and transition into self-organizing structures. She has worked with the full continuum of organizations, from traditional hierarchies to bleeding-edge start-ups, and is a popular speaker on Holacracy™, transformation, and whole-body wisdom practices. After 14 years of incubation and experimentation, her company, WonderWorks Consulting, was acquired by Godfrey Dadich Partners, where Anna is currently Partner, Culture and Transformation.
