ORGANISMS AND ORGANISATIONS

How healthy are you and how healthy is your team?

What if we are able to use natural resources that are very close to us, to create and develop ourselves, people we are responsible for, and organisations we are involved with?

 

I’ve been thinking about these questions for over five years as I work with people and companies who want to continue to improve, be more resilient, and appear seamless in the way they operate.

 

The answer to the questions has been interesting. It’s made me consider what we can learn from how our body works and by tapping into how natural functioning organisms work. I’m not a medical expert but it seems to me that making this link is obvious and we can use some of this basic knowledge to develop ourselves, our teams, and our organisations. And as we link organisms and organisations together, blending the learning from one to the development of another, the term double O© is born.

 

We can learn so much about developing ourselves and an effective organisation by exploring, and being curious about, how our own bodies work.

 

double O© is part of a personal journey that I would like to share with you. Over the next six months I’ll be posting a series of blogs on the double O© concept. We’ll look at the skin, neurons, brain, lungs, and heart, to consider what we can learn about how they function and think about how we can utilise that information with our teams and organisations. It will enrich our sense of purpose at work as individuals and how teams work effectively.

 

As you continue to read I hope that you’ll see there are many ideas that you can develop yourself to continue the journey.

 

I’ve found that people connect with this line of thinking when I ask the questions at the beginning of this blog. Do let me know what your answers are if you have time.

 

In the next Blog we will explore the definitions of ‘organism’ and ‘organisation’.

 

If we can find and identify the elements of natural resilience, then this will accelerate the flow of progression with individuals in the organisation and the organisation’s progression.
