QUADRANT ONE-VALUES – KEY QUESTION: WHY

“Why is respect and trust so crucial? 

How many people do we trust? 

On the answer to that hangs the whole design and structure of the organization.”

Charles Handy in The Learning Organization.

People derive their self-esteem from knowing rather than from learning.

Are there collaborations and new teams that we could create?

Why do we fear change if humans are always in transformation? 

QUADRANT TWO-IDEAS, KEY QUESTION WHAT? 

Diversity is not only honored but also sought and celebrated.

Authentic conversation is generative: connecting, and inventing.

Communication must be free and open.

We need to admit to each to each other the things we don’t know. 

We need to continually check our underlying knowledge base. 

QUADRANT THREE-ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEMS, KEY QUESTION HOW? 

People work best in communities of practice tinkering with ideas and processes.

We need a system for constant inquiry into the systemic consequences of our actions.

Coaching needs to be a way of life. 

QUADRANT FOUR-PERFORMANCE, KEY QUESTION WHAT IF? 

Assessments are multiple and diverse.
