Custom-fit to your dynamic human system

With Project Community you won't get a one-size-fits-all approach to your unique situation. We use a broad range of methods to bring the best tools to your job. A few approaches we use include:

  • Living Systems, Second-order Cybernetics, Social Constructivism, and resolution-focused systemic approaches work with organizations as living systems, not as machines. Founded on systems theory, biology, communications, and linguistics, these perspectives bring about inside-out systemic change
  • Dialogue and World Cafe™ group methods - Based on the work of Physicist David Bohm, Peter Senge, and Juanita Brown these methods create deep, focused, and constructive conversation and change
  • Family Systems - Our organizations are more like families than any other group. Family systems models, based on the work of Virginia Satir, provide tools for resolving conflict and working within dynamic human systems.
  • Myers Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI) - The most widely used personality indicator, MBTI helps us understand our differences in communication and work styles, and helps us work more effectively with others.
