How we do it
Our facilitators detect the relevant patterns outside the system’s awareness which are maintaining the status quo and reflect this information back to the system without judgment or blame.
The system then updates and evolves its own solutions. By doing this so openly the system is taught to self-model and detect its own ‘stuck’ patterns thereby maintaining greater flexibility in the future.
We use feedback, interviews, training sessions and coaching.
Wisdom in the System – ‘What would you like to have happen?’
When a client presents a desired outcome, our modellers ask ‘clean’ questions in order to detect the ‘system’ within which the issue has developed. This system can be within an individual, a partnership, a team, a group, an entire organisation or community.
We know from experience that quick-fix solutions to problems will need to be refixed at some point in the future because the structures replicating the pattern have not been addressed. We seek to work at a high enough level of systems thinking so that the system does not incur that class of problem again.
Beyond quick-fix solutions
Any organisation adopting this approach can use it to detect and model patterns of strength, competence or creativity and replicate these in other parts of the system. As the system begins to detect its own patterns it becomes increasingly independent of the need for Training Attention and its’ modellers. Using clean feedback, systems thinking trains the system to train itself.
Our Clients and their stories
Because this process is not about importing a technique but about exploring what is presented by a client, each application is unique to the system it models. The best way to understand this process is across a number of case studies in contexts relevant to your needs. What is presented here is a wide range of the individual stories, case studies and delivery models which have evolved out of Training Attention’s unique systemic approach.
The Clean Feedback Model
The clean feedback model is integral to our work, and together with the constructivist paradigm of systems thinking forms the basis of organisational training.
