Challenges Contain Opportunities

How successful is your organization in creating trust and building relationship?

When does your organization shine and when does it get stuck in the complexities of today’s business environments?

This is an invitation to come together to build new understandings and effective ways to work on key issues that might include:

~ Diverse and competing views – internally and externally.

~ Impasses caused by conflict between departments, professions, cultures or business partners.

~ Customers and employees taking advantage of increasing choice and movement, making retention and recruitment more difficult.

~ An increasing number of mergers and acquisitions.

~ Environments were diversity and inclusion initiatives failed or undelivered on expectations.

~ Polarizing social issues like immigration, politics and racism impacting productivity in the workplace.

~ Global trends that disrupt traditional power dynamics within and across businesses, unions, NGOs and governments.

You can’t eliminate complexity or the “increasing noise”… but what if you could transform it into an advantage?

The Worldview Intelligence Advantage

Worldview Intelligence gives you new skills and knowledge to lead teams, organizations and collaborative partnerships through complexity, giving you a competitive advantage.

WVI offers a structured approach, framework and language to confidently address increasingly diverse environments you may be encountering – at work, in community or elsewhere.

It does this by revealing the hidden dynamics that nourish conflicts and by opening the door for a new dialogue, changing your outcomes. It provides a different path to transform conflicts into potential avenues of cooperation.

What You Will Leave With

You will gain insight into where worldviews come from and the skill to make sense of the impact of them.  This will give you a strategic advantage in building trust and relationship. The WVI Theory of Change planning model will provide a road map for you to change the outcomes of your conversations, meetings and partnerships.

You will also discover ideas to mobilize your team around a shared vision, aligning individual and collective views, leading to a sense of belonging, greater engagement and better utilization of time and resources.

Who Will Benefit From This Program

This program is for leaders, managers, directors, working in rapidly changing business environments, focused on intercultural issues, mergers and acquisitions, diversity-equity-inclusion, or conflict resolution in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

About Kathy Jourdain, MBA; Jerry Nagel, PhD; and WVI

Jerry and Kathy are recognized thought leaders on worldviews. Through extensive research and analysis, they have translated theory into practical application in a wide variety of client and community contexts.

The philosophical origins of the WVI framework came out of the 1990s work of Leo Apostel and the Worldviews Group at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Where and How the WVI Approach Has Been Used

We have used the WVI Approach to support:

  • Culture shift in NGOs
  • Changing member relations in two large education unions in the US
  • Mergers and acquisitions in health care
  • The illumination of diverse views that contribute to challenging communication in and across communities, especially where different cultures are present
  • Innovative, leading edge initiatives in health care and regulatory environments
  • The exploration of changing demographics and the impact on workforce recruitment and retention
