If we want to create meaningful change towards a more sustainable, equitable and thriving future, it’s not enough to work on the surface with short term solutions. Real change means shifting our understanding of what’s important to us and acting on it. For this to work we have to start with ourselves and get clear about what really matters to us and then team up with others who share our values and support each other to make it happen.
We are an international and for-purpose organization based in Bonn, Germany.
We believe in the power of every individual to lead and inspire change. We passionately support more authentic and conscious ways of working, collaborating and leading.
Through our services we offer guidance and support in the process of actively shaping change and navigating through the increasing uncertainty and complexity that surrounds us. We create experiences and guide processes for individuals and teams to reflect and connect with themselves, others and the bigger picture, forming the base for positive, purposeful and collaborative action. Through our joint work with experienced facilitators across diverse areas of change management, we bridge generations, perspectives and cultures.
Our journey thus far has led us to build our own organisational structure and culture guided by the principles of the Teal movement: purpose-oriented and trust-based self-organisation. We stand for sustainable, innovative and caring solutions which support social transformation. Trust, purpose, integrity and transparency are values which form the foundation of our organizational culture, our partnerships and our services.
At the core of everything we do is our purpose of empowering people to lead and inspire change from the inside out. This encompasses three levels of reflection and action:
- Personal and inner development
- Meaningful connections with others
- Positive and collaborative action.
Our purpose is to lead and inspire change from the inside out. We believe that inner shifts create outer transformation, that every individual has the power to lead and co-create social transformation, and that we’re more powerful when we work together.
Our vision is to catalyze positive impact through more meaningful and conscious ways of being, working, collaborating and leading. In this way we want to actively shape and support a social shift: from fear to trust, from an ego awareness to an eco awareness, from scarcity to abundance, from competition to co-creation, from separation to connectedness.
The inside out approach
We believe that change starts with each of us.
We each have an impact every day - on the people around us, our surroundings, our communities and our environment. Every little action, decision and conversation can have an impact that ripples out. For us, the first step is acknowledging this: what I do has an impact.
The second step is get clear for ourselves what we deeply care about and what inspires us. In times of rapid transformation it is more crucial than ever to develop and nurture this inner clarity: to be able to navigate uncertainty and build resilience in ourselves and others.
Getting clear often means making decisions. Decisions about what stories we tell ourselves, about what we need to let go of, and about what we want to fully commit to and act on. The third step is to make decisions.
Change might start with us, but it doesn’t end there. When we team up with others who align with our values and we support each other to take positive and collaborative action, we have impact on a bigger scale.
