The work of CoFORM Consulting is based specifically on bringing together and further developing the following theoretical and practical approaches.
Collaboration - Self-organization - Holocracy - Sociocracy - Collegial leadership
Leadership and decision-making concepts
Regardless of whether you are interested in a complete restructuring or just experimenting with more flexible formats: In more and more organizations, classic hierarchy and communication structures are being supplemented or even replaced by network formats, elements of self-organization and decision-making in teams and roles.
Leadership is not always superfluous, but it can mean new tasks and also new assignments. CoFORM Consulting supports you in evaluating which approaches make sense and are feasible for you, as well as having a space to practicing new formats.
Systemic organizational development - Systemic coaching
Reflection and change processes
"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
- Maulana Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
Reflection processes, whether individually or in a group, are often the beginning of changes. Whether in 1-to-1 sparring or in the moderation of team formats, we support you with reflective methods, the structuring of processes and technical advice for discussing current issues, researching the current status, developing future images and starting realignments together.
Diversity Orientation - Social Justice - Empowerment - Emergent Strategies - Postcolonial Management Theory
Social justice approach
Issues of "diversity" and anti-discrimination in organizations are gaining attention. The work of CoFORM Consulting builds on many years of experience in anti-racism / anti-discrimination education, diversity-oriented organizational consulting, as well as post-colonial perspectives on management theory. This view, which flows into all further approaches as a cross-section, characterizes the consulting, coaching and moderation work of CoFORM Consulting in particular. You can read more about this here.
For people and groups who work in the field of social justice themselves, our experience in designing empowerment spaces as well as our power-critical / power-conscious work, which is based on the teachings and approaches from movement building such as Emergent Strategies, can provide helpful support.
Theory U - Social Presencing and Forum Theater - Emotional and Body Intelligence
Leading from the emerging future
"Emerging future (...) is a future that we can feel and actualize by shifting the inner place from which we operate" - Scharmer & Buyer
In the western world, too many people center knowledge that the focus only on cognitive processes of understanding alone. This does not reflect our full reality and thus leads to incomplete solutions. The challenges of today require that we reflect on and practice our ability to be listen, to empathize and to connect with our various forms of knowledge. The above approaches offer various methods that can support you in your solution processes.
Agile Methods - Design Thinking
Take a deep dive into complexity
Design Thinking is an incredibly effective method to explore problems and develop creative collaborative solutions. Having the courage to try things out before they're perfect can make a big difference in contexts where things can look entirely different tomorrow. With methods like Design Thinking we can promote multiple perspectives and joint thinking. Through co-creation we develop ideas and solutions with you in a dynamic and exciting way.
