Five Principles Philosophy
T he Five Principles have their roots in both Eastern philosophy and Western psychology, influenced by 'learning with' Jan Mojsa, Satish Kumar, Schumacher College, and the Centre for Gestalt in Organisations.
- developing self-knowledge and self-expression for clarity and honesty in target setting, conversations about performance and relationships, influencing others, addressing conflict and more
- drawing on theory, knowledge and models as well as inner judgment and experience, selecting the most appropriate approaches for each unique individual and each unique situation
- developing self-awareness in order to better understand our own impact on ourselves and others, and to be able to access a range of choices in behaviours, management style and communication
- learning not to be attached to assumptions which can cloud judgement, to past issues affecting current work and relationships, and to potentially constraining outcomes
- developing understanding, acceptance and empathy for ourselves and others in order to work more effectively together, strengthening relationships and building collaborative teams
These principles are interconnected, and form a foundation for Gill's work with clients.
