Our objective is to help organizations make better decisions by gathering, analyzing, and mapping multiple, contrasting perspectives of a situation. The more perspectives taken into account and clearer the relationship is between them, the greater the maturity of decisions made, and the more precise troubleshooting of a dilemma can be.
One can think of perspective maps as a “GPS Map” for human communications.
There are many situations that could benefit from explicit perspective maps, from clarifying quarrels between clients or colleagues, to teasing apart contradictions between legal, ethical and psychological perspectives, to preventing sabotage and one-upmanship in meetings or debates, to even taming belligerence between nations in a violent standoff.
While a lot of systems are already in place to provide feedback systems, our work is based on a framework on Integral Theory — an omni-disciplinary focus that includes all facets of human inquiry, including psychology, meditation, human communications, and data analytics. Our data collection process combines low-tech in-person face-to-face interviews and email surveys to high-tech data mining and statistical analysis of big data with text, semantic, and syntactic analysis tools based on SAS and R.
What We Offer
Our core service is creating for you a 360 perspective map, through a combination of in-person interviews, feedback and surveys, and various data mining techniques. This map can subsequently be used by managers, counselors, clients, lawyers or employees themselves to make far, far more informed decisions.
In addition, we offer a variety of other related services including communication skills consulting services, policy consultation, IT / systems consultation, meditation instruction to ensure your minds are open enough to hear other perspectives, workshops, mediation, meeting facilitation, and focused data analysis and research.
What We Claim
We never guarantee you will be able to ‘resolve’ a particular issue. The final step is still up to you. However, we do guarantee you will gain significant clarity on your issue by leveraging the greatest depth and breadth of human perspectives available.
