Liminal Transformation for Organizations

There is ample evidence that an obsessive focus on process improvements is failing to deliver.  And in this modern, incredibly fast changing environment, we still cling to these 150 year old ideals like a drowning man to a punctured life craft.

The pressure to adapt is only going to increase in the coming years. We predict that the companies that create soar-away value from unbeatable competitive advantage will be those that have massively increased their ability to collaborate and cooperate. Nurturing a workplace that understands the importance of consciousness, organizations will enable and leverage the higher functions of the neo-cortex rather than the swampy limitations of the primitive brain.

Nurturing human consciousness in organisations is the next major leap forward in competitive advantage.


Inducing a Liminal State

Savvy leaders recognize the reciprocity between the growth of the individual and that of the organization as a whole. 

The end result is an organization of empowered individuals who are more capable of meaningful and creative responses within and especially at the boundaries of the organization.

Which is why we work at a deeper level by inducing a liminal state using a variety of programs and tools at many levels within your organization. The core of all of our programs is built around one-on-on liminal coaching sessions that utilize focused concentration, imagery and suggestion to calm the instinctive mind and encourage a voluntary, positive re-framing of the problems our clients face in today's business environment.

Creativity gives purpose to our existence, our work and our world. The research concurs. And yet, every industry faces the same challenge: legacy dominance of the left brain. The logical, reductionist, executive part of our brain dominates the workplace.

The subconscious parts of the brain are capable of doing massive parallel processing and are quite comfortable dealing with enormous complexity. Creative insights, novel solutions, and those precious shifts in perspective all flow more easily when we encourage and welcome this part of our unconscious. 

And this is where we come in.

Mike has been working with the whole team at our innovation consultancy. Our work requires us to maintain a high level of empathy, deep listening, and quick thinking in order to effectively support our clients to navigate complex challenges.

We are more resilient to stress and more able to tap into a creative and collaborative mindset.

Liminal Coaching for Business Packages

Our business packages are custom tailored to meet the specific needs and challenges of your workplace. But the end result is the same.

We look forward to providing a tailored and more detailed breakdown of what your program might look like.

I’ve been working with Mike on becoming a better leader: improving my listening skills, focusing on the important rather than the urgent, maintaining a calm, relaxed, upbeat attitude, not getting distracted or annoyed by little things.

So far the results are quite astonishing. I find all the little things I usually procrastinate on are getting done. My office is clean, bright and organized. My mind is clear and fresh for work, I’m more proactive and much more productive with my time. And I feel great.
