The Vision:

We are all leaders, creating the world we want to live in.

We are an organization run by values, with the radical vision that everyone is a leader creating the world we want to live in. Through increased awareness about what is important both for oneself and in the surrounding context, the ability to create and shape what you want to see increases. We truly believe that this creates a more conscious, sustainable and prosperous world.

 

We want to walk the talk. We strive towards becoming fully self-organizing, which means we have no formal hierarchies nor managers in the classical sense. Instead, our coworkers are fully responsible for internal and external projects actively seeking support from colleagues and outside the organization when needed.

 

We also work according to the 1:1 principle in our digital tools. This means that for every trained individual by our paying customers, we offer a student or NGO coworker our tools free of charge. This allows for a much larger impact with relatively small measures.

Organizational Values

Lekregler

Live your truth

Being yourself at work is given when working with us. It is about being aware of what is important and living your personal values in everyday life. A prerequisite for breaking old patterns and challenging past truths, and also to allow multiple perpectives to coexist.

Radical trust and responsibility-taking

A requisite for being self-organizing includes practicing radical trust and also valuing the responsibility that comes with it. This means that we try to minimize management, instead practicing daily leadership where each and every coworker is fully responsible for his/her own projects and development.

Contribute to the whole

To regard whole systems and using a holistic way of thinking is among the hardest things there is. We believe there is a genuine need of wisdom in decision-making processes where we train ourselves in taking multiple perspectives outside our own preferred ones, defining the purpose or value we want to see and how we may contribute to this.

Listen to understand

We are fully aware of there being parts of truth and potential value creation in all perspectives and images of reality. Constantly seeking new information means that we also strive for practicing active listening towards colleagues, partners and inwards. The intention is always to try to understand what lies behind the observed, rather than too quickly coming to a conclusion.

Clarity creates freedom

Many falsely believe that creative thining requires total freedom, however it is usually easier to be free within a certain frame. By being clear internally and externally regarding expectations we create more freedom, creativity and flow for everyone involved.

Whole-heartedly or not at all

We genuinely believe that we feel and perform at our very best when acting from inner motivation. If we take on a project, we make sure to do so with full power and passion. Otherwise it is better to handle the short-term pain of saying no early on.

Fail fast, learn and have fun!

In a fast-paced and changing world, it is important to prototype. If we don’t fail it means we don’t dare to try new things enough. We believe in bringing up and celebrating victories as well as failures in order to have fun and be fully free in our continuous learning journey.

Kung Fu Panda

A panda by the name of Mjaua has been our mascot since starting 2009. She is a continuous reminder of being playful, present and always with tongue-in-cheek. We strive to bring body, mind and soul in important decisions. Even the most challenging situations have been transformed by Kung Fu Panda!
