SHIFT YOUR PARADIGM
We help clients tap their hidden power to adapt, respond, and excel
in an ever-changing landscape.
SHIFT from PROFIT to PURPOSE
Purpose unlocks passion. It fuels collective power. It’s also the hidden “Ingredient X” that drives human and organizational peak performance. People who care contribute more. And more easily. Additionally, research proves that purpose-driven companies adapt and innovate faster, attract greater investment, serve their internal and external customers better, and generate greater impact than organizations that focus on profit.
When organizations align with purpose, and allow that purpose to ignite their people, teams become cohesive, responsive, and adaptive. Success becomes profitable, repeatable, and scalable. Best of all, rewards are actionable, sustainable, and fun.
SHIFT from HIERARCHY to NETWORK
Collaboration, engagement, appreciation, commitment. These are hallmarks of a thriving network. Compare these to the currency of hierarchy: ego, authority, scarcity, turf — top-down power-over that creates competition, isolation, fear, and fiefdoms. Hierarchy is a dead-end program. When teams shift from hierarchy to network, they unleash their true potential — shared power that delivers initiative, energy, inspiration, and solutions, all within a vibrant, living process.
Networks hum with connective wisdom — a collective intelligence that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Networks also uncork initiative, creating elegant, sustainable feedback loops, transparency, and contribution. When the connective wisdom of a purpose-driven network shines its light intentionally on a vision — magic transpires.
SHIFT from COMPETITION to COLLABORATION
Physics and neuroscience consistently demonstrate that we live in a connected universe — an indescribably complex totality in which every component gives and receives as an integral part of the whole. Put simply, we are not independent. We’re interdependent. When individuals, networks, and organizations shift from Me to We, a cascade of positive outcomes permeates the entire collective.
Conversely, when competition reigns, flow-states are stymied, mindsets shrink, systems calcify, and scarcity prevails. But as social creatures, we are wired to connect. Our desire to belong drives collaboration. 21st-century change-agents know our problems can’t be solved by the siloed thinking that created them. Collaboration unlocks innovation, allowing organizations to amplify their capacity.
SHIFT from PLANNING to IMPROVISATION
Improv. Improvisation. The word conjures potent associations: comedy, jazz, creativity elevated to art. Intuition, spontaneity, trust, surrender, and fun — are the hallmarks of organizational improvisation. They’re also the guideposts of play.
When organizations nurture the power of play, individuals and teams harness their full spectrum of intelligence, cultivating situational awareness, contextual responsiveness, and artful co-creation. Conversely, if they remain locked in proscriptive planning, control dominates, creativity withers, and potential wanes at the expense of security. Nature provides a flexible pattern-language for life. By integrating this pattern, organizations can navigate their own responsive evolution without being thrown into chaos.
SHIFT from INDIVIDUAL to COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE
Collective intelligence generates a multiplier effect. Better, it can be engineered by design. In an organization, collective intelligence is the height of synergy. It’s a connective system that leverages the vertical wisdom of each individual, creating an amplified state of efficiency and capacity that is more than the sum of its parts.
The flow of ideas through any organization directly relates to its overall performance. When this flow is hampered or unbalanced, potential lurks in the shadows. By engineering conscious work-flows, enabling diverse perspectives, nurturing equitable participation, and fostering connective engagement, organizations create synergistic, high performing teams.
ADAPT. RESPOND. EXCEL.
