A CO-WRITTEN DESIGN DOCUMENT
Capture who you are, why you're in, and what you want to do together.
The Blueprint of We starts with a co-written design document that gives people the space to exchange information about who they are and how they work best.
When we have information straight from the source, rather than making assumptions about other people’s behavior, our brains engage the neural networks that build trust and lower anxiety.
The simple structure harnesses the innate social nature of humans and builds the skills and capacity to deliver on your goals. It is currently used in many languages and cultures in 100+ countries worldwide—from couples and start-ups to non-profits and global corporations.
Your Blueprint of We is a living, breathing document that evolves and changes over time to reflect the needs, agreements and design of the group.
AN ON-GOING COLLABORATION PROCESS
Don't avoid group stress, use it to make you better
The collaboration process builds on your written design document and introduces tools to develop collaborative behaviors, calming messy minds and improving on what is already working.
Through a method we refer to as Noise in the System, you learn to clarify and communicate your awareness of what matters, how you operate collectively, and how those behaviors become cultural patterns.
From that awareness, we give you simple, daily tools to help you question, and ultimately change, the pattern thinking that causes anxiety and stress. Stress, when used as a messenger, can give you clarity of direction, ease of decision-making, and resiliency in the storm.
The iterative design process offers an on-going learning cycle about self and others in relation to how you get work done together.
