Collective Intelligence Consulting and Dialogue Facilitation
The Soul Purpose is a consulting company that specializes in dialogue and collective intelligence facilitation to help surface the potential that is blocked by unconscious counterproductive patterns of behavior. Through facilitation, consulting, design and coaching, we help organizations increase their effectiveness by increasing the quality of their thoughts and actions.
The power of the collective is infinite.
Unfortunately, we don’t always know how to tap into our collective intelligence at work. We get trapped into systems that cause us to behave in unconscious, unproductive ways. Under pressure, threat or embarrassment, we unconsciously create what are called “organizational defensive routines.” When these routines play out, they create counterproductive patterns and behaviors.
We know there is a better way to communicate and work together but we can’t see our way out. So we continue to do the same things we’ve always done, hoping things will change or get better.
But they don’t.
We get stuck in reaction which we disguise as “action” or “strategic planning” because we don’t spend time to understand how the problem really works. Without taking the time to really identify the lessons learned and patterns and behaviors over time, we’ll only recycle the same conversations and actions. At the end of the day, we beat ourselves up because we put in so much effort and hard work, but come out with the same or worse results than we were striving for.
Understanding the dynamics at play in a team or system is the critical component to achieving our goals and objectives.
When this happens, we remove the obstacles that get in our way. We increase our effectiveness, improve our systems, and unleash our potential. We do this through dialogue, mapping and employee communication and engagement.
