Diagnostic


The most important thing that will help you live longer is the size of your social network - that has a bigger effect than anything, except giving up cigarettes. Your social network has a huge effect on happiness and wellbeing.
— Professor Robin Dunbar

Thompson Harrison, in partnership with Professor Robin Dunbar, has designed an organisational diagnostic that gets to the heart of the very human experience within an organisation. By asking a series of questions based on years of solid and original research, the diagnostic provides actionable insight into how ‘human’ the organisation is, how adaptable and creative it is and to what extent the so-called ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ will enhance, replace or augment current activities. The diagnostic provides robust data on levels of trust within the organisation; highlights the sources of long term resilience; looks at the drivers of human connection and thriving; and reveals the impact of social networks. 

Culture enables people to thrive. We believe that this is one of the biggest tasks of leadership in the 4th Industrial Revolution. We link our 4IR diagnostics to our strategic programmes and work with leaders to build organisational capital.
