How is awareness being applied to transform organizations?

Conscious organizations dedicate time, energy and resources to:

Self-Awareness

inspire mindful leadership

Higher education continues to seek new ways to bring more meaning and purpose into the learning experience for students. Recognizing this need, Kellee designed and facilitated a fellowship with faculty across academic disciplines around reflective practices. The collective conversation resulted in system-wide institutional recommendations using the whole-person paradigm: Mind, Heart, Body, and Spirit.

These ideas were presented at a cross-campus dialogue — and, Kellee served as a featured presenter at a national conference on contemplative practices in higher education. The academic institution now has adopted reflection as a core learning outcome and is exploring other ways to integrate various forms of contemplative practices within each discipline of study.

Systems-Awareness

put ideas into action

Innovative ideas must translate into action for organizations to realize their benefits. Kellee partnered with an international private health services provider on an innovation integration engagement. This effort required a whole-systems approach to align their business and technical priorities. The experiential nature of the intervention allowed for the collective wisdom of the system to design a holistic technical roadmap while cultivating a culture of innovation for the integration of cutting-edge technologies.

The CIO is now a 'strategic business partner' with his internal customers — and, the entire executive team makes decisions about new and emerging technologies by considering the systemic impacts on the broader enterprise.

Societal-Awareness

identify sustainable solutions

The interdependent global marketplace necessitates businesses to think and act more systemically. Kellee has supported a variety of clients with a global reach, including those involved in health and security. The complexity to coordinate activities and understand the potential long-term political, economic, and social consequences of important decisions in these areas requires a holistic approach.

Simulation exercises and collaborative technologies, like gaming and modeling, provide engaging methods for leaders to actively experience how their decisions might impact broader systems and empower them to make more mindful choices.

These action-based exercises and collaborative technologies have been used across the globe to address the pressing issues of our times: HIV/AIDS, pandemic influenza, man-made disasters, natural disasters, economic considerations, environmental concerns, etc.
