WHAT IS THE EVOLUTION FLOW AND WHY DOES IT WORK

The Evolution Flow is the very core of how we work with the evolution of human systems at Cocoon Pro. It is a discipline. It is what we have devoted most energy and care to since we have started our journey together: 10 years of beautiful experiences working for months or years with very different organizations all around the world, 10 years of deep study across many decades of work and methodologies left to the world by outstanding giants, and — not least — a decade of exchanges and collaborations with experienced and passionate professionals in the domains of org development, change, strategy, org design, psychology, team work, and much more. …

The inextricable nature of the multiple crises humanity is facing is confronting all of us with the realization that a radical shift in perspective is urgently needed, in all domains of human life simultaneously. When the challenge is so daunting, where should we start? At Cocoon Pro, we have been doing our best to hold this question during the last several months, looking for actions that could support a major adaptation in world-views, work dynamics and culture, and help to start raising the new.

This is how, in June 2020, Care4 — aka C4 — was born. C4 is a platform where you can access world-class content live, experience moments of different worldviews, and interact with people who care about where the world is going. The form could be webinars, courses, events or workshops, but the underlying thread is common: the intention is to stream perspectives with deeper roots into the livelihood of being. …

This is the story of a continuous oscillation between fragmentation and coalescence. A young and well performing organization which felt the need to find new centers of gravity. It’s a story where many polarities — strategy and operations, internal and external, people and tools — bring about a new step of evolution.

Non linear path
After participating in the Organization Design Masterclass with Paul Tolchinsky and Stelio Verzera, one of the founders of a small but excellent tech Italian company decided to join our Open Governance. He spent some months with us, sharing our Jam and participating in our meetings, until he decided to experiment Nalu, our spin-off dedicated to personal and professional growth, with the aim of helping people in his company improve their facilitation skills. The Nalu experience gave them the need to advance at the organizational level too. …

Nel 2014 abbiamo sviluppato la metodologia CORE² e da allora abbiamo sperimentato e imparato insieme a molte persone diverse per genere, età, ambito di esperienza.

A maggio 2020, in pieno lock-down dovuto al coronavirus, abbiamo deciso di continuare a esplorare questo strumento e raccogliere storie e punti di vista di chi, dopo mesi di lavoro, poteva ormai condividere in profondità cosa aveva notato e scoperto: cosa significa vedere la realtà e il proprio contributo attraverso una nuova lente, cosa significa risuonare con il proprio ecosistema e fiorire davvero come persona e come professionista. …

We are living in challenging times, indeed. By now, we all know in our bones what living in times of “VUCA” means. Working within Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity is a different game than the one learned in decades of management designed for stability and based on planning and control.

In this scenario, we hear many companies saying they have to focus on execution in order to survive, they have no time for anything else, let alone innovation. At the same time, we also hear many companies calling for transformation as an absolute need, in order to be apt for the coming tides of challenge. …

COME FUNZIONA L’EVOLUTION FLOW

L’Evolution Flow è il cuore del modo in cui lavoriamo all’evoluzione dei sistemi umani in Cocoon Pro. Dopo aver visto nei precedenti articoli che cos’è e quali sono le sue radici, esploriamo ora come funziona nella pratica.

Accanto al Modello del Fiume e dello Spazio di Evoluzione troviamo un terzo elemento essenziale dell’Evolution Flow: il suo quadro di applicazione. Applicare l’Evolution Flow nel mondo reale è un viaggio iterativo, e si basa sulla ripetizione attenta di tre passi. Primo, disturbare il sistema umano, introducendo qualcosa che richieda un adattamento del sistema. Secondo, scoprire come il sistema lo digerisce, come reagisce in tutta la sua profondità. Terzo, indirizzare l’energia prodotta da questa variazione verso l’evoluzione desiderata, generando anche lo slancio per la prossima iterazione. …
