what is the blueprint of we?


The Blueprint of We, created by the Center for Collaborative Awareness, enables groups of any size custom design healthier, more resilient business and personal relationships.

In an increasingly complex world, where the old ground rules are no longer reliable, it gives you the power to mindfully create your life and work, rather than squeezing into pre-established relationship models.


You personally write the document along with those involved, whether 2 people or 20,000+. It captures what draws each individual to the situation; enables you to let others know how you work best; helps you mindfully design the framework of the collaboration; and provides a path back to peace when the need arises.


As an on-going collaborative process, it wires your brain for more connection and compassion and enables groups of all sizes to continually find clarity. It is often being used to replace or enhance traditional legal contracts.

 Adopting the Concept Organization-wide 

Best case scenario, spreading the Blueprint of We through your organization begins when the leadership team senses the need for deeper, more dynamic and resilient interactions. They lead by example; creating a Blueprint for their team and with their direct reports. As the concept begins to permeate the organization, everyone is invited to create their portion of an organization-wide Blueprint of We.

Even if you’re not part of the leadership team, your spark and energy can move mountains. Sometimes it takes one or two people to start using the documents, building more effortless relationships, and then others start to notice. The adoption process is infectious and exciting. Whichever path your organization takes, decide today to custom design and build your business relationships, making them more vibrant and effortless.
