It’s powerful when people share a vision together. When people have developed their capacity to “see collectively”. When they are united in the way they see the potential of the organisation and share a hopeful future together.
Developing a shared vision takes time
It is not just adopting what the boss thinks or says., It is about taking the time together to systematically reading the reality of the company and the world. This is what Building a Vision of Hope is all about.
“There is nothing in a caterpillar that is going to tell you it is going to be a butterfly.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
How does it work?
A small group of people (5-10 participants) come together for 8 sessions of 3 hours each. Based on the insights generated through systems thinking and inspired by the soul of the company, people can formulate a shared vision together that describes the desired future they wish to create together and how to achieve this.
The outcome of the Building a Vision of Hope workshop together with the results of Finding the Soul can be documented in one statement called the “Charter of the Company”. It serves as the guiding document for the organisation in the years to come and the centre that binds and inspires everyone within the organisation.
