Today, we often find ourselves struggling to make sense of the world around us. Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) provide stimulus to expand our capacities. At the same time, the tools and methods we used to get by with often fall short of delivering what we need. To make good decisions and take actions that will move us forward, we need new insights that get to the core of matters. It is from this context that Core Insight has been developed.
Core Insight is a sensemaking process and tool. Sensemaking as a general method has evolved into a growing movement over recent years as a way of understanding the dynamics of complex systems and how to best intervene to support positive progress. It emphasizes a holistic understanding of human beings and how we navigate the contexts we are part of. To understand human behavior in teams, organizations and in other societal groups, human sensemaking processes have proved to be of great importance.
CTL has been working with sensemaking tools and methods in a variety of contexts;
- generating insights on complex organizational issues such as onboarding, compliance and management worker relations,
- bringing an appreciative inquiry approach to understanding the needs of youth,
- supporting university students in developing reflective skill practices.
Our experience is that this approach enables clients to get ‘unstuck’ and move forward on difficult challenges in more adequately informed ways.
The Core Insight process involves a new way of approaching making sense of issues. You can read more about this process here. The combination of this process with our tool enables you to get very rich data (combining narratives with quantitative data), is easily scalable and adaptable to your context. It is also very participatory, with the ultimate sensemaking being done by those most directly involved.
