How do we create a Regenerative Business?
A regenerative business model requires the development of
A NEW WORK DESIGN
The new Work Design applies the core principles of Regenerative Leadership and redefines the HOW of the organisation (“how work is done”).
The implementation takes place in the following order:
Evolve People & Thinking Processes First
Evolve Business Work Systems
Evolve Work Structures LAST
Step 1 starts with a deep introspection & stakeholder analysis to understand
(a) shared values, needs and opportunities to create well-being,
(b) the bottlenecks which hold you back from activating your full potential.
Only until we understand the full scope of the interrelationships, impacts & challenges of the services you provide, we move forward to redesign.
Pentad Stakeholder Framework for Regenerative Businesses
We follow a 3-Step-Approach which is aligned with the procedure of strategic implementation by Carol Sanford and the U-Theory of Otto Scharmer (The Presencing Institute).
Regenerative Leadership puts the development of people first!
This is where we start before we dive deeper into the value creation for all stakeholders & the respective work systems that are required to reach your goals.
Read more here about the self-reflection journey that is essential to kicking off this transformative process. You can find more details about the specific steps of implementing a new work design in our SERVICES.
Educational Material & Regenerative Tool-Kit
The educational material of JR | Regenerative Leadership is a unique blend of existing frameworks and shared concepts among leading institutions of the regenerative leadership paradigm, as well as tools acquired & refined in the fields of Business Administration, Sustainable Development, Sociology & Social Transformation, Leadership, Taoism & Yoga Philosophy.
Our tools have been proven to bring about profound and long-lasting change, from the micro-level towards the governmental level. All tools make use of our cognitive diversity and promote whole system thinking. Among these are different visualisation & embodiment techniques, such as the 3D Mapping Tool from the Presencing Institute, which enables you to analyse your ecosystems from the perspective of Living System Design. We also let you explore the power of meditation for the sake of successful mindful leadership.
In short, we invest in your mindset!
