what we believe

 

 
we believe all learning is situated…


…so we seek to understand the spatial and temporal dynamics of each situation
 
…and resist the urge to assume that we’ve seen this before and know ‘the answer’


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe all behaviour is goal directed…

…so we seek to engage and understand people’s motivation
 
…and resist the urge to assume that we’re all here for the same reasons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe the future is emergent and uncertain…

…so we stay nimble and manage in the moment
 
…and resist the urge to predict the future and attempt to manage it with long term strategy plans

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe people are not machines…

…so we take an ecological approach
 
…and resist the urge to employ the reductionary management methods and production line processes of the industrial age

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe data is not insight…

…so we use professional judgement
 
…and resist the urge to be led by the allure of the algorithm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe culture is dynamic…

…so we attend to our role in the community
 
…and resist the urge to ‘manage’ culture with values statements and motivational posters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe hierarchy is emergent…

…so we work in fellowship and seek out challenge and dissent
 
…and resist the urge to take control or to seek comfort in allowing someone else to take control

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we believe in doing things ‘with’ not ‘to’ people…

…so we form partnerships and co-create the journey
 
…and resist the urge to impose or empower
