At Syntegra we seek out leaders with positive aspirations and ideas for how people can work together more effectively.
These leaders are the key to a sustainable future. In order for this sustainable future to come about, systems or clusters of integrally designed and constructed organizations must be created. Any organization, on its own, would not succeed achieving sustainable societal change – it is too hard, too much effort, the challenges are simply too complex to overcome. If, however, we are able to create integrity within and between diverse organizations, then we have the basis for synergy and that allows aspirations to manifest and leaders to create sustainable transformations we seek.
We believe that solutions to many of the current crises (e.g. economic, educational, crime, health,…) can be found when we realize that the old order is collapsing because a new order is seeking to emerge.
Encrusted patterns of action and conventional ways of thinking have led to these collapses in the face of the new realities. The most important feature of these new realities is the scale of complexity of globally inter-connected systems re-wired by the internet.
To help a sustainable world to emerge, changes in consciousness, skills, cultures, and systems need to take place essentially in simultaneous patterns across parts of connected organizations. Such change can not and should not happen across all parts of organizations at the same time. Instead, we believe that the new approach must embed the following keystones of the future:
- It must be integral in that it addresses individual intention as well as skills and behavior, explicit systems and processes as well as cultures of the human systems
- It must use the insights and knowledge from complexity science
- It must take a mosaic like strategy to change in order to take into account the relative capacity of the different sections of those changing and those supporting the changes.
We see the need and opportunity for connected change to be so great and worthwhile that we have responded to the challenge by creating this consultancy in a new form: a social business (following the example of Muhammad Yunus who has created several Grameen businesses).
In order to facilitate the change of bringing about the emergent new realities across clusters or systems of organizations that are interdependent but of different means, needs, and nature, our profits are dedicated to enabling this change.
To attract and retain the best staff we pay reasonable salaries, offer meaningful and exciting professional challenges as well as development opportunities.
We believe that this business model enables us to apply our specialized expertise to all of the interconnected sectors that make up our society: Corporate, NGO, Education, Healthcare, Government, Faith-based, International Development Agencies
As a social business we are working toward the maximization of social benefit of what we do – not individual profit. We distinguish ourselves from Charities or NGOs in that we are financially sustainable and do not rely on grants. Much else we share in common – especially the focus on creating satisfied customers through sound service.
