Episode 12: I Want to be Human – Also in Organizations

In this episode we speak with Mariëlle Cuijpers, one of the members of the Genuine Contact Organization about her experience working with this holistic approach and how it's contributing to her lifelong learning journey. In our conversation we touch on the importance of spirit as part of what gives meaning and how Genuine Contact allows for spirit to show up in work situations. Mariëlle shares her experience and understanding of Genuine Contact from her rich experience as a public policy researcher, a Yoga Teacher and student of Humanistic Studies. She speaks about what it was like to work as a member of the facilitation team that undertook the Strategic Plan Refresh for the Genuine Contact Organization and how it has been for her to incorporate what she is learning into her current consulting work. Through its twists and turns across many areas of life Mariëlle shares with us her joy and wonder at exploring the interconnectedness of things, and how Genuine Contact provides beautiful ways to do just that.
