Creating Self-Aware Businesses
At ET we assist corporations to become self-aware of all aspects of their collective being...how they are showing up in reality, not just focusing on the bottom line. We help them develop the skills and processes to automatically observe their normally unconscious behaviors and belief systems which are internally limiting their productivity and success. These are the invisible factors that crystalize into “glass ceilings”. They are the valves of the corporation’s hidden vatic power of creativity and magnetism which turn on and off mysteriously. We help you understand how these subtle, innocent, "self-sabotagings" manifest, and how to consciously graduate from their influence. The "challenges" of business (whatever they are) are the mystical thread, that if we pull at it unravels the hidden core values and integrities that influence life opportunitiesse. These are treated as valuable expressions of that business’ collective consciousness. Observing our reaction to questions like, “Do our actions align with our core values?”, reveals limiting beliefs and practices as they truly are, which normally is hidden. We look at these as indicators and expressions of the corporation’s internal integrity and energetic alignment. Creative powers are limited by these “corporate blind spots” and we mentor you in how to cultivate awareness and graduate from their influences and live in “alignment” and integrity as what you corporately truly are.
As corporations increasingly become self-aware, they become more uniquely what they are, and more expressive on all levels. This lack of fear and increased creativity invites a response by Life that corresponds to the quality of the alignment. When a corporation learns to honor that level of consciousness as something more seminal than even their most cherished core values, their ability to be in relationship with all of Life, becomes increasingly without limitation of any kind. Their ability to contribute to a certain quality of life here on planet earth will become increasingly harmonious in unpredictably magical ways. The bottom line reflects this new relationship. The ability of a corporation to cultivate consistently fearlessly facing their collective unconscious, and then productively integrate the hidden needs that these behaviors reveal, is the mark of a conscious corporation. This is the birth of a new consciousness-based business model. We at ET believe that this is the “phoenixlike” invitation behind the recent financial disintegration.
With our combined 60 plus years of experience inside organizations, we find a special place in our hearts for businesses. As the focus of attention shifts more and more to the effects of states of consciousness in performance, individuals, organizations, and corporations are ever more being looked to for new being-based models of leadership and influence. There is the opportunity for businesses to experiment with and model self-awareness leadership as the missing key to responsible harmonious financial success. We help them do this through powerful, awareness-based processes that lead to creativity, success, and transformation.

Transformation Into A Conscious Organization
Extraordinary Transitions is most effective in assisting organizations and businesses who see the advantages of being committed to becoming increasingly conscious in their interactions with their clients, the world, and Nature. In the search for meaningful impact and financial success, many organizations are looking for new models of conscious business practices. We help these businesses explore new ways of showing up to doing business that have positive impact in their business sectors and world consciousness. The consciousness: the self-awareness, processes, values, impact energetic and energy) that a business acts from is vitally important…if a business conducts its activities in an effort to be more conscious, then life itself responds pro-actively by bringing it opportunities that are of like energy. These are the magnetics of success that are rooted in an organization being fully who they are…just like an individual being who he is fully without limitation.
Extraordinary Transitions supports your businesses become conscious and most effective in its role in global society through a number of increasing self-awareness services, the most important of which is assisting you and your organization clarify and maintain alignment with your core values. If the personal/private and public "persona" images are in sync, and consciously rooted in the core values, where actions and values are consciously in alignment with an effortless magnetism is created that irresistibly attracts a certain quality of people, clients, and opportunities of the highest order and effectiveness.
Clarifying Core Values
We also assist organizations to become aware of the principles by which they have traditionally operated and the effectiveness of those models and shift those that are less effective than they would like. As in individual transformation, we present processes and methods that enhance the opportunity to view organizational behavior through alignment with the core value of loving behavior (is this action loving or fearing). We urge experimentation with defining those values and behaviors in light of environmental response and bottom line successes (which too are examined in light of the core values and goals). These processes allow the culture to own its heritage and to clearly see the differences between unchangeable core values, and the changeable policies and practices.
We have the means to assist the Organization discover and implement values based practices even inside the corporate structure. Example: Organizations dedicated to living their core values have assigned a Board of Directors position (which is rotated and has veto power) of Corporate Conscience to give teeth to the commitment to maintaining alignment.
Conscious Communications Processes
Through conscious, respectful group communications processes (Synergy Communications) the group consciousness is allowed to freely and openly explore all the possibilities and opportunities available. Harvest and distill the organizational wisdom in a new way. Through unique processes, the collective higher consciousness of the group identifies various needs, and engages in exploration of options and creative solutions without the high maintenance dominance-over system (usually requiring policing by leadership). These unique communications processes tap the heart of the organization’s members, and involves them in voicing organizational needs, root causes, and creative solutions that ordinarily wouldn’t be explored when the seminal idea pool is limited.
Leadership Style Transformation Support
We also help leadership make the personal transition from dominance over systems of leadership, into lower maintenance yet highly creative and effective values based group participation. This shift usually liberates leadership to shift into higher realms of creativity and productivity. It also requires leadership be courageous enough to fearlessly look at their personal involvement, and be willing to relinquish behaviors and practices that may be getting in the way of a greater effectiveness, higher invitation, and way of influencing. We also show how the organization at various stages of its growth requires different responses to keep it conscious, happy, and flourishing.
Once the corporate consciousness is well established and shaped, we assist in processes that give it responsiveness, and external recognition through our editorial, marketing and publicity skills.
The Invitation of Challenges
The same basic underlying themes challenge all organizations dedicated to manifesting excellence, regardless of their size – this is especially significant in relation to listening to dissent and handling conflict. If delicate or unpleasant issues are left unaddressed… if comfort (don’t rock the boat) becomes the unconscious criteria of behavior, ...if leadership and the core values don’t expect, and evoke excellence from the heart of every member, then those distresses only grow larger. The challenges of conflict are a courageous invitation into expansion of awareness. Many organizations that don’t learn the skill of listening to the voice of dissent for its hidden gold, miss tremendous opportunities for true creative transformation and new excellence. If they stay reactive, over time they can become dogmatic, and succumb to invisible rampant growth of inner negativity. Without a true commitment to self-awareness that is automatic and built-in, the reactivity seduces collective energies into bureaucratic, fearful, and controlling actions. In unconscious organizations, this energetic contraction is justified by another core value that has become unconscious and hasn’t fully been owned by the present generation… all of these contribute to an innocent slide into mediocrity, a preoccupation with survival, and an overlooking of the higher invitation for fiscal and social excellence. This can even cause premature death of the organization.
Especially now, as the focus of attention shifts more and more to the effects of consciousness in performance, individuals, corporations, and especially spiritual organizations, are ever more being looked to for new being-based models of leadership. We help them do this through powerful, awareness-based processes that lead to lasting transformation.
