oUR mission is to develop robust human systems
Robust human systems are groups of people: teams, organizations, families, communities - in which all members, regardless of role or position, are fully engaged, using and developing their unique talents, learning and growing, working both independently and in partnership with others, united in purpose, with mutual understanding and respect throughout.
Through decades of research and work we have learned how often people are blind to the powerful patterns of behavior that exist within almost all organizations. We help people see the systemic nature of organizations and learn how to individually and collectively use that awareness to greatly increase their influence and impact. We serve our mission by transforming system blindness - with all its costs - into system sight with all of its productive possibilities.
WE SERVE THIS MISSION IN THREE WAYS:
through visceral and transformative workshops.
The Organization Workshop: Creating Partnerships Across Organizational Boundaries
The When Cultures Meet Workshop

through readily accessible books that fundamentally shift how we see and understand human systems.
