“Co-Thinking means for you that, for a certain period, someone is on your side, who thinks critically with you in organizational terms.
A dialogue partner who thinks along with the development of your organization and your projects.”
Our modus operandi is Co-Thinking. We advise in organizations, in which managers and executives are responsible for the economic and idealistic success of their company, for the satisfaction of their customers with the products and services, and for the well-being of their employees.
For you Co-Thinking means that for a shorter or longer period someone is standing next to you, thinking along with you from an organizational point of view. Supervision and coaching is offered as needed for change processes. Expert feedback creates impulses for movement.
Because it is difficult to see the big picture when you are involved in detail, professional, external comments can be innovative and decisive. A dialogue partner, therefore, who thinks along with you in the development of your organization and your projects.
For us, Co-Thinking means that we always develop an integral perspective with regard to the factors that are essential for a project. Many of these factors transcend what is explicitly said within the context of the organization. The way people think, speak and work has a lot to do with habits, just as a river always follows the same stream and erodes its bed more deeply. Our experience is that change projects – organizational or project-based – become easier when myths such as ‘resistance to change’ and ‘new concepts are always difficult to implement’ are dispelled.
We like to describe our approach as the flow of a river: A river naturally finds its way meandering through the landscape. A river naturally meanders its way through the landscape, snatching a piece of the bank here, carving out a new channel there, and further on allowing the sandbank to wander or sediment to adhere to the bank along the way. The current thus influences the shape and location of the river, and conversely, the river influences the current.(https://scheldeschorren.be/)
To change the flow of a river or to make the river flow again, there must be knowledge of the undercurrent, the bed and the banks. Knowing about these, taking advantage of the opportunities and removing obstacles will make the river flow (differently).
Does that sound complicated? Yes. Developing car tires, making paper, managing building codes, managing a healthcare service, designing heterogeneity and inclusion, installing photovoltaic systems or designing trade show booths also sounds complicated. You can do that, we can do that other.
