Organizing Principles

Emprogage Way of Working

Our organizing principles define our way of being and the way we organize EMPROGAGE as well as ourselves. The principles, our attitude, and the way we act are in line with our joint purpose and supporting our values.

We choose EMPATHY before sympathy, PROACTIVITY over reactivity, ENGAGEMENT before attendance and LOVE before fear.
We also choose AND and BOTH instead of either or or. INCLUDING WE as entity instead of we and they. We choose DISCUSSION and DIALOGUE instead of debate and polemics. And we LISTEN and pose questions to UNDERSTAND instead of questioning.
We CLARIFY, ILLUSTRATE and ADJUST rather than explain and correct.

Openess

We are open for questions and ask questions to understand and create mutual clarity under any circumstance. We are curious and present, to endorse mutual engagement. We promote life affirming set ups. We challenge/explore power play behavior and seek to find the life affirming needs behind it.

Choice / Responsibility / Participation

We create opportunity and connect desired consequences with responsibility. We as individuals are competent and capable of making conscious choice. Decisions are collectively distributed. We take responsibility for ourselves and the larger group We share responsibility for the results and support each other in creating progress. We prioritize according to our values and purpose. We choose freely and in absence of prestige – each individual is assumed to be responsible and capable. We embrace and select our behavior to learn and improve the group’s performance, by clarifying and adapting rather than explaining and correcting.

Learning

We act as co-creators, grow with each other, and choose mutual learning. We encourage change, improvement, and renewal in pursuit of what is best for the world. We share knowledge, learn from each other, and develop together. We use reflection and vision as tools to enhance the viable and experiment to learn. We create proactive habits to help us follow our purpose. We identify and stimulate behavior, patterns and language that moves us to become creators of possibilities. We identify and reduce impact of processes, tools and language that moves us to victims of circumstances.

The I Context

I work from the perspective of: What I do gets done What I take responsibility for I can influence Through personal reflection I see choices and choose improvement. We believe in transparency in all matters – create insight, clarity, and sustainability I self-organize and self-govern In reflection of myself I continuously find what is important for me and what I want. I focus on increasing my self-awareness to become comfortable with I choose to see the good, see opportunity and see myself in that context.

In Relation To Clients

We see people and organizations we meet as creators of their own experiences and environments. We are not observers – we intentionally create what is best for the world. We see man as a part of nature. We include the client in the design, invite for co creation (transcendental marketing). We see the individual as having higher level of consciousness level than the organization. We see the human in the client rather than the client in the human.
