3 WAYS TO ENGAGE A COLLABORATIVE MINDSET
Wire Your Brain for Trust and Clarity
OUR MINDS DETERMINE THE WORLD WE COLLABORATIVELY CREATE
People are messy. Our minds are often focused on problems. And when we collaborate, our messy minds interact with other messy minds.
Designing healthy interactions begins by creating healthy minds. Our collaboration tools help you wire your brain for less stress and better interactions.
Off-the-shelf ways of working together aren't working for you.
You're ready to custom design it your way.
We’re proud of our years of executive coaching with individuals, but COACHING GROUPS IS OUR SWEET SPOT.
Years of working with groups taught us that brilliant, self aware individuals don't naturally make for healthy collaborative spaces. As social scientists, we use the neuroscience of collaboration to wire the group for more clarity and less stress.
NOTE: All our Blueprint of We design templates come with 90 minutes of Collaboration Coaching.
The Blueprint of We Collaboration Process
The Blueprint of We is a co-written design document and ongoing collaboration process that builds trust and reduces anxiety in groups. The simple structure harnesses the innate social nature of humans and builds the skills and capacity to get things done.
The co-written design document gives people the space to exchange information about who they are and how they work best.
The collaboration process builds on your written design document and introduces tools to develop collaborative leadership behaviors, calming messy minds and improving on what is already working.
It is currently used in many languages and cultures in 100+ countries worldwide—from entrepreneurial start-ups to non-profit organizations to global corporations. Watch the video below for a quick look at how it works to create a design document for your collaborative relationships. MORE
Problem-Solution Model is brilliant.
Just don't use it with people.
Our world was built using the Problem-Solution Model, which encourages the brain to focus on problems. It’s perfect when you are fixing a car, yet our current, more complex landscape requires us to reevaluate using it as our default mode.
Collaboration requires a new model to collectively engage our creative energy: The Desire-Invention Model.
It enables groups to rewire their brains to harness group stress, rather than avoid it, and use it to accelerate progress and purpose.
When we're not actively doing a task, the default network of the human mind is social. We're continually thinking about ourselves in relation to other people. Do it mindfully.
