Nature-based Frameworks

“The major problems in the world are the results of the difference between how Nature works and the way people think.”

– Gregory Bateson

The design principles Simoon works with largely draw from nature-based frameworks. Those take into account the innovative mind-set required for modern-day change projects and the role of nature in this. What can we learn from nature? As human beings, leaders, team members. And how can we (re)connect with (inner & outer) nature?

Simoon helps you increase workplace productivity, enthusiasm, and creativity while improving interpersonal relationships and revolutionizing your business with integrity and respect for the earth! In addition to creative problem-solving practices, Simoon also draws from Way of Nature and Theory U. Below you find a brief introduction to both.

Way of Nature

“Returning to the Source is stillness, which is the way of Nature. The way of Nature is unchanging.”

– Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching

Way of Nature is a practice and a global community of creative souls who are committed to exploring and sharing the liberating recognition of Source Awareness. It was founded by John P. Milton, a pioneering ecologist who embodies a unique blending of scientific grounding in ecology with the open heart and mind of a spiritual seeker. For much of his life, John has labored to open what he calls “Sacred Ecology” as a new cultural foundation for the West. He calls this foundation and path Way of Nature and has developed 12 principles of Natural Liberation.

As a student of John’s for many years, Simoon is an experienced practitioner and board member of Way of Nature NL.

Theory U

“The success of an intervention depends on the interior condition of the intervenor.”

– Bill O’Brien

The model, language, and framework of Theory U was mainly developed by Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer and aims to achieve sustainable change, based on the quality of how we pay attention.

Scharmer says: “Why do our attempts to deal with the challenges of our time so often fail? The cause of our collective failure is that we are blind to the deeper dimension of leadership and transformational change. This ‘blind spot’ exists not only in our collective leadership, but also in our everyday social interactions. We are blind to the source dimension from which effective leadership and social action come into being.”

The book “Leading from the Emerging Future” articulates principles of emerging organizations and ecosystems: openness, transparency, sharing, intention, holding space, conversation, awareness (from egocentric to ecological awareness), commons, playfulness, diversity, and symbiosis. As we know, “culture eats strategy for breakfast”. Now is the moment to work on a deeper and systemic level to bring about real change and lead transformation towards a sustainable future.

All credits and deep appreciation to the Presencing Institute. More information on Theory U can be found here.
