I spent much of my career in different organizational areas (1) of multinational companies, most often dealing with situations that impacted transversally the entire organization. When you operate across the boundaries you realize how important it is to loosen your grip on certainty and open to new possibilities that result from being in relationship with others – you open to new ways of seeing the world. By looking at situations from different perspectives, you acknowledge that the organization is larger than the sum of its parts and that only by overcoming fragmentation and separateness will it be possible to access the full potential of the resources.
As an advisor I want to share my experience and knowledge and help organizations address the challenges that need to be confronted to generate sustainable value in a world of transient competitive advantages. Organizations must not only look outward to strategically position themselves in the transactional environment, but they need to look inward as well and implement the actions that promote a culture of creativity, collaboration, and shared understanding on which all organizational processes rely.
Moving upstream and cultivating Awareness, Dialogue and Reflective Practices represents for organizations the path to success and sustainable value creation.

ConsiliumORG was founded knowing that to thrive in today's complex and rapidly changing business environment successful Organizations must always balance their focus.
Looking inward is as important as navigating the transactional environment, Long-term development is as important as managing interactions in the present, and cultivating the organization’s entrepreneurial nature centered on exploration, discovery, and innovation is as important as attending its operational essence based on order, stability, and efficiency.
The inability to manage the tension resulting from attending both worlds results in failure to leverage the full potential of the organization’s resources and in lack of clarity around overarching goals. Each individual must embrace the bigger picture and consider the organization as a larger whole. At ConsiliumORG, we guide organizations to holistically address interconnected challenges and opportunities, enabling them to leverage their full potential and navigate toward sustainable success. When operating in environments characterized by high levels of complexity, organizations cannot afford to operate fragmented.

We help you see the world differently by creating more space for dialogue, learning and interconnectedness. Only if new ways of perceiving the world emerge can organizations thrive. There can be no success without the generation of unique insights.

EMBRACING THE TENSION
Exploring different scenarios and understanding how different factors may influence the future will help you stay ahead of the curve and respond more effectively to unexpected changes in the business environment. Leaders must keep different possibilities open without converging to quickly on one solution.
What could happen? - What can we do? - What will we do? - How will we do it? - Who are we?
Critical in today’s fast-paced business landscape is the development of spaces within the organization that foster the embrace of dynamic tension between different subsystems. Rather than avoiding or suppressing these tensions, organizations can harness their energy to drive innovation, collaboration, and growth. These spaces serve as incubators for creative friction, where diverse perspectives, ideas, and approaches come together to generate the new.
By actively encouraging the exploration and resolution of tensions, organizations can uncover new insights, challenge the status quo, and unlock breakthrough solutions. Embracing the dynamic tension within the organization becomes a catalyst for adaptability, agility, and staying ahead in an ever-changing business environment.
ACTING FROM THE SOURCE
By cultivating Awareness, Dialogue, and Reflection, individuals and groups learn how to transcend their ingrained thinking patterns and redirect their focus towards what truly drives success. This intentional shift empowers organizations to embrace the potential for new possibilities to emerge.
The transformative journey resulting from attending these core areas engenders a mindset deeply rooted in collaboration across the boundaries and collective action.
Experience the profound shift that will elevate your organization to new heights of success, fueling growth and fostering a dynamic culture of achievement.
