is in groups
We all (at some level) believe that humans are meant to connect; to live and work together in groups and communities*.
Groups are where collective work happens, where change happens, and where we're able to work with the complexity of our everyday world.
Groups are where we can experience the inclusion of community and true belonging: connected and free.
But, most people don't experience truly powerful and joyful group working because we generally live and work in a highly individualistic society, where we're conditioned to think we can (and even should) survive and thrive alone.
We disagree that it needs to be this way. We definitely disagree that it should be this way.
*You only have to look at all the names we have to describe how people gather in groups.
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
The alchemy is in collective adapt-ability
Few people now would deny that we need to adapt (or die). It's not news.
Our context is changing. Fast. Everyone is talking about the need to adapt to meet the challenges of perpetual and rapid change.
Ironically, the ways we're tackling change are not changing. Doing more of the same, faster, is not producing the solutions we need.
The key to thriving in a fast-moving, uncertain, and ambiguous world is adaptability and unleashing the power inherent in groups to create change, as they change.
“Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we never were able to do. Through learning we re-perceive the world and our relationship to it. Through learning we extend our capacity to create, to be part of the generative process of life.”
We're leading the field of group work and our clients are looking for something leading edge.
The people we work with believe there is another way. A better way.
