These are the Percolab’s principles of ways of working that we apply at Percolab right here, right now. We think everyone should work like this.
Principle #1 — OPEN
Keeping secrets slows things down, being open speeds things up.
Opaque and secretive ways invite in scheming, homogeneity and insular thinking. Openness invites inclusion, co-learning and integrity.
Principle #2 — ENLIVENING
Forget systems that are mechanistic, everything we do is alive.
Directive, plan and control work can drag on and produce flat results. When work integrates our autonomy, spirit and creativity it can be full of ease with kick ass results.
Principle #3 — CO-CREATIVE
Individual genius is overrated, the future is created together.
When leaders try to figure out for others it breeds apprehension and singular thinking.
Co-creation builds attuned pathways with legitimacy and collective energy and wisdom.
Principle #4 — HUMAN
Work doesn’t just solve problems, it develops human beings.
Treating human beings in extractive ways generates disengagement and suffering. When we trust and work consciously we grow and develop into more reflexive and capable humans.
Principle #5 INSIGHTFUL
Knowledge doesn’t come from one source, it comes from all around.
Siloed and linear approaches are unable to deal with complexity. Tapping into the myriad and multi-dimensional ways of listening leads to insightful breakthroughs.
