The ‘E’ of real estate podcast will help you to create a positive impact by rethinking the learn/work environment of a university campus to maximise human potential. A human-centric environment to learn and work, that is a better place for organisations, people and society. A place that is adaptive to changing user needs. A place that gets the best out of its users and a program that creates a bond between users and the university environment.
The environment enables people to grow in their abilities. It is an eco-system consisting of 3 interconnected areas: the Physical environment of real estate and facilities, the Digital environment of ‘smart’ building plus online learning hubs in a digital classroom and the Social environment of usage and behaviour agreements. For an ecosystem to stay in balance the parts should be in harmonious interconnected service to the whole.
Of course, the design of the environment doesn’t solely determine behaviour, but they do shape, enable or encourage or hinder it.
The workplace is also a state of mind. The environment is a catalyst for human performance and therefore has a strategic impact on the core business of any organisation. But also, on the health, well-being and consciousness of people, on a body, mind, heart and spirit level. Consciousness is the state of being aware (or sensitive) of and responsive to one’s surroundings.
This podcast is a community for the discovery journey, how the 3 environments, physical, digital and social, can be used as an integrated means to maximize human potential in a sustainable way. We spend 85% of our lives inside a building and it is therefore essential to living in a healthy environment. Places and systems that work instead of solely workplaces and work systems.
I talk with experts to explore new perspectives and their practical implementation on cutting-edge topics in using a learn/work environment as a management tool to thrive. A tool to support achieving organisational goals and health & well-being for students and staff by placemaking. A kind of GPS, to tell you where you are on the way to your desired targets.
The ‘E’ in the name of this podcast stands for objective measurable coordinates of:
“An exploration odyssey where Real Estate and the Real State of people meet.”
An exploration odyssey about REAL ESTATE and the REAL STATE of people. The interface and interaction between the state of the built environment (physical, digital, social) and of the health (body, mind, heart, spirit) of people using the built environment. Places where the inner and outer world collide. The environment is influencing how you think and feel. The human mind and body are not separate and distinct from their environment. Together we can create the difference in unlocking and unleashing human potential to thrive as organizations and as humans.
This podcast addresses questions like:
- Can I work and study here effectively — Are we doing the right things? (Effectiveness)
- How does the learn/work environment affect me? (Engagement)
- Is the learn/work environment manageable and in control? (Evidence)
- Is the learn/work environment used efficiently — Do we do things in the right way? (Efficiency)
