Allowing Human Ingenuity to Unfold

It is our conviction and credo that human beings carry the gift of being ingenious. However, this gift requires certain conditions on various levels in order to fully unfold:

Our work is based on the understanding that we operate in living systems. Understanding these properly and addressing them adequately is the basis of working with a real impact (read about how we understand the work in living systems). Our interventions take place on three levels, which are all interrelated:

  • On a micro level – i.e. in an event like a workshop, a meeting, a gathering – people must find a climate, culture and opportunity of dialogue, understanding, space to unfold, respect and authenticity. We can promote and shape such events through facilitation (which includes the purposeful design of events);
  • On the meso level – in the workplace, in an institution, in an organisation – people also need a culture and environment of possibilities, of sharing and cooperating, of contributing to meaningful purposes, of recognition – many aspects are dealt with under the umbrella of knowledge sharing (and innovation management for that matter) and we can actively manage parts of this;
  • On a macro level – in society at large, people need to have their rights fulfilled – human rights define the conditions that human beings need to unfold their full potential. These include all aspects: social, economical but also personal rights and freedoms, which allow them to think freely with a full stomach, to be promoted (through education and a lively culture); in short to live a life in full dignity – we can contribute to the creation of such a society by promoting human rights.
