Does Love relate to management?

Decades of research produced a management methodology that operationalises the newest approach to management. The newest approach to management is scientifically named Organizational Learning (OL) while in the market at previous attempts to operationalise it has been named “lean”, “agile”, “the Toyota way”, “Kaizen”, “knowledge managements”, “participative management”, “self-organisation”, “systems thinking” and other names. It is a way of evolution using the collective intelligence of your organisation. It is a way for remote strategic planning in less than a day – no matter your size. It is a way to make your vision a reality fast and easy. But above all, it is a way to apply love-based management since collective intelligence operates at the love level.

Let me explain: Research proved that 70% of our communication is energetic and only 30% is through languages. Peter Senge explains that this 70% is an energy that gets communicated beyond space and that there are three types of energies (named “stances”); the learning stance, the knowing stance and the needing stance. He suggests that the stance from where we can materialise our highest potential is the learning stance (or learning energy if you prefer). There is however a fourth stance/energy; the love stance/energy. This is the stance that is achieved only through going to the depths of the learning stance and with a lot of meditation. This is the stance that yogi souls have attained and support everyday people to gradually attain too. This is about our individual organism. But what about our organisations?

Is there a way to reach the loving stance at a collective level?

OLSET (Organisational Learning Self-Evaluation Tool) provides your organisation with a learning stance that if attained can shift into the loving stance/energy/level. One of the pioneers of this approach to management is Maslow who introduced the concept of “Enlightened Management” in his book named “Eupshichian Management” (1965) from the Greek words translating as “Good Soul Management”. Thus there is a management that is good for the soul and indeed scientists are studying it during the last 60 years. Another great scientist of this management approach is of course Peter Senge who with his book “The Fifth Discipline” (1990) made this approach more widely known. It is a management approach that allows the leaders of organisations to manage both long-term evolution and everyday management.

We managed to operationalise this approach to management and we offer the single user version to all for free for ever because we believe that even a poor kid in Africa has the equal right with the richest person in the world to use our cutting edge tools to materialise his/her vision.

As a response to the COVID-19 crisis we would like to contribute also a completely free 3-months’ group subscription (no matter your size, culture, industry or sector) to a limited number of organisation in order to assist as many as possible to shift to remote strategic planning. Just contact us at info@olset.org with the discount code LVRTCLCODE1 at any time. During these difficult times we hope that OLSET’s remote and asynchronous use of Systems Thinking tools will help organisations become more sustainable.
