We live and work according to ingrained patterns. We often think that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
But this is simply one filter with you can look at the world around you. There is much more to experience, enjoy and to develop. Competences such as intuition and creativity are still present in everyone, but during the first years of our lives we are “switching them off” under pressure from a society that still has its origins in industrialisation.
We simply don’t see or feel it anymore, which leads to phenomenas like dissatisfaction and polarisation. Under the influence of digitalisation and robotisation, this trend is continuing at a progressive pace. This while actually the opposite should happen. Machines take over the physical, rational competencies more from us while we as humanity should develop their consciousness, empathy, affection, intuition, amazement and creativity.
However, we have completely forgotten this because we have simply rationalised a number of steps in our evolution. By means of the Evolving Startup approach you can restore this cycle and you are able to take yourself and your environment (family, friends, society, organization, customers etc) with you to a state in which growth, cooperation, trust and harmony prevails again. Qualities that are currently dramatically lacking for a successful and hopeful future.
Our “What” – An integral approach
Hey, but Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle has a different order…? 😉
Nevertheless, we think it is more important to first set out our holistic view of organisations before we can go into the “How”. This “How” will of course be discussed further in our future blog posts.
Consciousness & Embodiment. Based on the realisation that we have to consider the theme of life, cooperation and organisation as inseparable from each other as inseparable units, we would like to demonstrate in various articles how important the heart and the “guts” of our employees are in addition to the head, why and how we have to pay attention to these areas and how we can use them successfully. The subject embodiment is very important to us, as is allowing and dealing constructively and positively with our feelings and emotions in business.
Anyone who is familiar with Agile will certainly be familiar with the subject of Purpose. Especially in the area of leadership and self-management, issues such as focus, purpose and value play an important role, with the right Purpose providing the necessary orientation.
Practices and principles complement the guidelines we believe modern healthy organisations should work with. These help to lay the right foundation for agile and responsive organizational forms. We derive our knowledge and experience from agile transitions, but also from experiments and implementations of alternative forms of organisation such as Sociocracy, Holacracy and Collegal Leadership.
Development towards a successful Culture and Mindset that enables adherence to practices & principles.
Leadership and Structures. There will always be a hierarchy – nature shows us why and how. The only question is which forms of hierarchy are useful. We want to offer help with which organisations can learn to develop independently.
Energy and Spirituality are absolutely necessary if we want to consider the themes of our present time in their entirety. This includes subjects such as universal laws, the integration of emotions and feelings, perception & use of intuition, attention for our soul, but also that of organization and meditation. Work & “life” (we also live when we work ;-)) are inextricably linked in our framework.
Flow is what is best created when we “do everything right”. To give room to soul, consciousness, feelings and emotions, to be able to act according to talents, strengths and possibilities, to have developed a mentality and a culture for successful cooperation. Achieving Flow should actually characterize our daily life 😉
How to achieve all this?
How the Evolving Startup approach can be applied will be explained in more detail in the upcoming blog posts.
