Purpose & Principles
“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”
– John F. Kennedy
Our purpose is to help people, organizations, and institutions learn how to apply and harness the power of peer networks, authentic communication, and change readiness practices so they can organize, collaborate, and connect in more trusting, engaging, and meaningful ways to drive successful outcomes.
We will help them shift from outmoded 20th century practices (e.g. a command and control mindset) that are incapable of meeting 21st century demands to that of a fully connected culture, where all members are empowered to make a difference, and new solutions and innovations are emergent, enabling them to better meet their own purpose.
What we believe (our core principles)
At Future|Shift Consulting, we believe...
...that all employees matter and should be treated with respect, deserving of transparent and open communications.
...in the importance of human fulfillment in building and sustaining an engaged workplace.
...in the power of business to make a difference in the world through the role companies play in their local communities and their relationship with the environment (i.e. doing the right thing for people and planet).
...that the future of business will revolve around communities, open collaboration and networks, over traditional structures, closed loops, and destructive competition.
...in always thinking big and grand with no constraints and then adjust from there to deliver what’s possible.
...that successful engagements begin with taking a futurist’s perspective and then co-creating that future together with our clients; exploring the future is crucial to an organization’s survival.
