We empower evolving enterprises.
We believe that we are on the verge of an organizational renaissance. Organizations are emerging into a new paradigm that represents a coming of age of humanity where the masses are well-informed, well-connected, and ready to take ownership of their own work.
It is a shift from an organization where few at the top tell others what to do, to one where participants work together side by side, with a posture of learning and humility. To one where human energy is channeled through informed and voluntary participation, instead of through domination, guilt, and manipulation.
In this *new organization*, human potential is released at exponential levels and channeled towards increased innovation, creation of customer value, and results for your organization.
We facilitate the emergence of organizations into our new paradigm of work. Primarly focusing on China, we partner with internal change agents to develop a powerful internal culture of collaboration and innovation through designing distributed governance systems, networks of teams, and developing personal and collective capacities to support our transformation.
We believe that the overwhelming majority of leaders want to create healthy, thriving, collaborative, and innovative organizations. Yet many are stuck in habits of operating from mental models of “what is right” that originated during a time of humanity’s childhood, and in this age inadvertently create internal competition, hinder collaboration, slow innovation, and waste energy and resources. We will support you in your emergence towards our new world of work - either through a transformation process, or through building new capacities, habits, and practices one day at a time.
We invite you to emerge with us along this exciting journey ahead!
We love to connect with similarly-minded people!
In today’s global and technological age, organizations survive and prosper through continuous innovation. Innovation is the result of a culture that enables experimentation, initiative, risk taking, and safe expression of unusual and creative ideas. Organizations like Haier, Google, Netflix and others, grow by developing an powerful internal culture of teamwork and creativity. Developing this culture requires intentional and systematic work by top leadership.
All significant leaps of human progress have occurred through the mixing of diverse people - perspectives, cultures, and experiences. Diversity results in greater creativity and enhanced overall perspective. It’s critically important then, to listen in, safeguard and honor our different views, encourage diverse contributions, and celebrate our varied strengths. At the same time, when there is great unity around a vision and direction, anything can be achieved. Therefore, once we listen to and share our diverse views, we often need to sacrifice for the sake of unity, lend our unyielding support, and move forward as one body.
No one of us has the perfect ‘the answer’. In this quickly changing society, we are all on an uncharted learning journey together, to investigate and align our actions to the best ‘truth’ we can discover. Every person holds this individual responsibility to think for oneself and judge through one’s own and not through the eyes of others.
Our success and failure is interconnected and inextricably linked. We cannot disadvantage a few without eventual repercussions to the whole. Thus, distribution of compensation and our internal structures need to be designed in a way that supports social justice and shared prosperity amongst its members, enabling all to become owners of the enterprise and contribute unequivocally to its success.
With an attitude of abundance, we believe that there is enough for everyone. When we believe in abundance, we develop, encourage, and lift those around us. Successes of others bring us true joy. When we have the opposite worldview of scarcity, we become fearful that the progress of others will hurt our own progress. A scarcity mindset encourages us to put others down, so that we might get ahead, while an abundance mindset generates win-win relationships and collaboration.
