Genuine Contact as a Holistic Approach to Organizational Development

Change is Constant

The Environment

Change is constant. Change cannot be managed. Solutions must be found quickly to complex challenges and opportunities. Solutions must be understood throughout the system so that individuals can make individual decisions to take on the new. Knowing what works is harder than knowing what doesn’t work. 90% of change efforts have failed. 70-90% of strategic plans have not been executed. Linear approaches to organizational development have not worked in these more complex times. A holistic approach that uses participative architecture works. The Genuine Contact program offers this holistic approach.

Our Holistic Approach Produces Beneficial Sustainable Results

Learning to work optimally with both tangible assets and intangible assets is included in our holistic approach. Tangible assets include finances, property, and other items that are normally included in a financial balance sheet as assets. Intangible assets include human capital, information capital, organization capital, and something that we have called Factor C: collective intelligence capital.

Learning to work with four levels of consciousness in organizations is also included in our holistic approach so that individuals and the organization make optimal use of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual consciousness of individuals and of the whole organization.

Learning to work with feminine and masculine energies, including feminine and masculine forms of leadership, are included in our holistic approach.

Within our holistic approach, change is led from within the organization. Knowledge, skills and capacity are developed within the organization to create the capacity to continually grow and change to optimize benefits from opportunities as they emerge.
