We discover and experience a growing amount of thriving initiatives by change-makers, awareness raisers, pollinators and bloomers who swing their bats, raise their hands or work in silence to change our habitats, behaviour, awareness and actions for the better.
Initiatives raised by cheerful and brave ones sprouted from the cores within. Initiatives by inspiring youngsters, adults and seasoned people who can do good and are willing to contribute valuably. Also, people with more fearful attitudes take the initiative. Fearful people who still understand the need to change to live a prosperous life of fulfilment and joy. Who change beliefs, attitudes and conditions to achieve an even better balanced thriving life for humanity and mother earth.
Climate change, lockdowns and conflicts; an increasingly dispersed multi-generational workforce crying out for meaning and belonging. The unrelenting pace of challenges demands an evolution in organizational thinking.
We discover a common path of reconnecting to life and living ecologic systems and organisations. We understand the challenges of overcoming planetary boundaries. Still, it also means rediscovering our capacity for wonder, understanding our intrinsic dependence on nature, recognizing ecosystems, observing the principles of cooperation and interdependence and being inspired by them.
Leading the regenerative economy is also about transforming organisations towards business models that create the conditions for flourishing living ecosystems.
It also applies to our jobs and matchmaking businesses. By understanding that every ecosystem or organization only exists because of the perceived value of its clients. In the contribution and ability to add value, we experience forward-thinking awareness that needs to exist to find matching criteria. When living ecological systems flourish, they add value to their habitat. The connections and interactions of all involved are solely based on interdependencies of individual requirements. And we can only understand, embrace and act successfully if we speak the same language to understand our interdependencies.
Using nature and ecological metaphors for raising awareness requires a common language to understand the why’s, how’s and what’s of this commonly purposed journey. Job seekers and businesses face challenges in speaking, understanding, and addressing the matching principles in a common language. Because if we can understand our purpose, we can match and join our tracks.
To gain insight into the practicality of this new language, we made a list of questions to be addressed in match-making conversations, whether you are a job hunter or an employer. When the answers match, you have the pre-conditions of a thriving co-creation of a valuable match.
Here is a random list of un-grouped questions that can support a language of shared understanding.
