Sylvia Lafair, PhD, co-founder and President of Creative Energy options began her career in psychology to explore why people do what they do in personal relationships. Seeing the connection between how families behave and how work teams operate, she developed corporate team building activities to stop office politics and enhance team communication and collaboration.
She loves to tell the following story:
“My husband, Herb Kaufman and I had developed one of the most well respected personal growth centers in Philadelphia.
A participant in one of the seminars asked Sylvia if she would work with his senior leadership team. Her surprised response was “Why?” His response was ‘They’re fighting.” Her retort was “So what.” And what he said next led to a career change that has been amazing and totally unexpected.
He was thoughtful when he responded “Look, you work with families and you help them learn to get along better. My team is like a family and they need to learn to work together more effectively.”
“That,” as Dr. Sylvia Lafair said, “was when the light bulb went on. No one else had put the two together. Think of it this way, there are bosses like parents, co-workers like siblings, salaries like allowances, and even time outs called performance improvement plans.”
"My research shows that much as we like to believe our behavior is entirely rational, our thoughts and actions are often driven by the roles we learned in our families as children. And under pressure, we tend to revert to old patterns, often creating workplace drama that diverts attention from the business and undermines productivity. Once individuals see how their stress behavior shows up at work and what to do about it, they immediately take these new insights home with them.”
Sylvia Lafair, Ph.D. is President of Creative Energy Options, Inc. (CEO), a global consulting company that
targets and transforms workplace patterns for success. Sylvia has hiked the Inca Trail into Machu Picchu, has eaten indiscernible stew in the Amazon, and bungee jumped in New Zealand. When she lands long enough, she writes books, gives speeches, and leads seminars. Sylvia, ever the pioneer, retooled her skills as a noted family therapist to become a leadership expert and executive coach. In the workplace she helps teams find the sweet spot of cooperation and productivity.
Dr. Lafair’s programs and executive coaching helps decrease conflict and increase cooperation in the workplace. Her award winning book ‘Don’t Bring It to Work’ (Jossey-Bass 2009) is listed as one of the top nine books for every boss to read; one of the top twenty books for emerging leaders, and has won ten awards nationally and internationally.
Dr. Lafair’s research shows that, much as we like to believe that our behavior is entirely rational, our thoughts and actions are often driven by the roles we learned in our families as children for safety and survival.
