2023 will bring dynamic changes in our society. For hundreds of years, we have lived in separation – separating our personal life from our work and spirituality. However, it hasn’t worked well for us, despite all of the achievements by humankind.
Moving towards Integration
Slowly but surely we’re integrating everything back together. This kind of integration and approach to life, requires us to be in touch with the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of our being. Requiring us to speed up our journey to self-mastery regardless of our standing in the social hierarchy. In our society today, support for this kind of integration.
There have always been a few organizations on the fringes of our daily lives who have been teaching and preparing us for the new integrated thinking and the kind of leadership that is needed now. You know them, they talk about support and challenges. They host retreats and training programs that on the surface look a little weird. Over the past 20 years, the coaching industry has exploded as leaders look for support to meet the challenges and fast pace of change happening in their organizations and their lives.
Everything is Changing
So, how do we plan in the midst of such chaos and change? Creating and planning in an environment of change requires clarity on goals with less attachment to the “how”. We have to stay flexible and nimble as to how we will meet our goals. This allows us to pivot and flex as needed and keep our eyes on the prize. At MKM Management Consulting, we’re utilizing planning and management processes that are participatory and flexible to capitalize on the wisdom of the group paired with strategies based in scenarios with tipping points so that you know how to move and when to pivot. These processes are grounded in Gestalt Organization & Systems Development (Gestalt OSD)theory and method, the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) Technology of Participation (ToP), and Life Mapping. This allows us to work at every level of system and create plans that are implementable, flexible, and practical.
It is time to prepare yourself, your family, and your business or organization for change in 2023. Be intentional and forward-looking. This will not be business as usual. 2023 will be business unusual.
