We are a people development and consulting company dedicated to unleashing the full, positive potential of individuals and organizations.
We have built our unique business on a powerful combination of decades of ground-breaking research, insight-filled books, and highly engaging, experiential workshops. Power - we help you, and your organization, to maximize your people power — the ability to influence and lead, to create positive impact and lasting change — from any level or part of the organization.
Systems - we help you, and your organization, to increase your ability to think and act more systemically to effectively manage the increasingly complex world in which we live and work. Our systemic approach helps people understand and leverage the predictable patterns that exist in organizations and the reflex responses that we, as human beings, often use to respond to them. Once people understand the systemic nature of organizations, they can identify more powerful strategies for success, and most importantly, put them into action.
Our company was founded in by Barry Oshry, a pioneer in the field of human systems thinking. Consequently, our work is solidly rooted in observations of how people can perform at their best within the context of an organization.
Through over four decades of research with all types of organizations, all over the world, we have built a powerful set of insights and actionable strategies that supercharge the ability of individuals and organizations to achieve their goals.
We help people see and act, with more clarity than ever before - in ways that will increase their ability to achieve their goals and fulfill the mission of their organization. Each workshop is a high-involvement, reality-based event that will unleash the productive power of your people and your organization. Each is grounded in our proven methodology and will give participants new ways of seeing and understanding the worlds in which they and others operate, and they will walk away with tools and strategic frameworks to put that into action.
The learning is impactful, powerful and lasting, because it gets participants in the gut and the head. The Organization Workshop is a highly engaging, experiential exercise based on decades of research and observation of the systemic nature of people in organizations. The workshop helps participants see new possibilities for increasing their influence and effectiveness as well as how to increase the vitality and success of their organization.
The workshop can accommodate groups of , or in a customized format, groups of The workshop can be delivered in a half-day, 1-day, or 2-day format. In order to survive in these turbulent times, organizations need competent, effective, and empowered middle management. Yet those in middle positions commonly report that their jobs are too demanding, stressful, and unrewarding. Leading from the Middle aims at transforming middle positions into the drivers of integrated and effective change in their organization.
When Cultures Meet is an insight-provoking, experiential workshop that helps participants navigate the challenges and maximize the opportunities that occur when two or more cultures interact. The workshop can be delivered in a half-day or full-day format. The Power Lab is like no other leadership development program. It is an intensive, six-day exploration of power and leadership that provides you with the perfect practice field for intelligent risk-taking and personal growth.
Is Barry Oshry’s Systems Thinking Still Relevant at the Teal level?
In my adult years I have been a bartender in Boston's Combat Zone, a waiter in a Greek restaurant, a cartoonist, novelist, playwright, husband, father, and grandfather. I am the developer of the Power Lab, a total immersion leadership development program that, since , has attracted adventurous learners and leaders from across the globe. Power Lab: Living in New Hope is a multiple prize-winning documentary based on that program. This program has become an essential component in the leadership development curricula of organizations throughout the world with a network of over trainers conducting it in the U. I am also a playwright.
TOTAL SYSTEM POWER
What each of us can do in our multiple roles as Tops, Middles, Bottoms, and Customers to create a system with outstanding capacity to survive and develop. Top, Middle, Bottom, and Customer are conditions all of us face in whatever position we occupy. We can be Bottom at any level of the organization. In other interactions, we are Middle, when we are experiencing conflicting demands, priorities, and pressures coming at us from two or more individuals or groups. And in still other interactions, we are Customer, when we are looking to some other person or group for a product or service we need in order to move our work ahead. In each of these conditions there are unique opportunities for contributing to total system power; and in each there are pitfalls that readily lead us to forfeit those contributions.
In organization after organization, regardless of their business, their size, the country they were in, I found the same self-limiting patterns of behavior: misunderstandings across organizational lines, misdirected energy, destructive conflict, stress, lost opportunities, disengagement, and customer dissatisfaction. They blamed their unique circumstances or the personal characteristics of the specific people involved. And since their explanations were personal, so were their solutions: fix, fire, rotate the people, or send them off to training. The only problem was: the same issues kept coming back. My observation those many years ago was that the vast majority of these issues were not personal; they were systemic, and that the path to developing sane, healthy, creative, and productive human systems lies not in changing the players, but in helping people at all levels and in all positions, understand and master the systemic conditions they are in.
