The Rhizome approach treats every individual like a rhizome node. A rhizome node is complete in itself and able to link with others in a massive energetic lattice. It is at its best, when it recognizes that, it is indeed complete in itself. Rhizome works with the individual or leader to awaken or align the internal sense of awareness, completion and wholeness. And simultaneously supports them in creating conditions for connection and attachment within their teams. The net outcome desired is an increased level of trust and engagement.
When one is secure and joyful within, with the appropriate emotional and cognitive mechanisms working together, there is an urge to feel motivated and to live life to the fullest. This spills over to the domain of work and personal life.
With appropriate boundaries in place, one finds in themselves resources to be of value to the world and connections where one desires to go. An individual’s world is constantly evolving and he or she is constantly ready to make new connections, as per their current requirements. Rhizome aims for its clients to enjoy this process of continuous growth and transformation.
Rhizome’s tools are backed with sound constructs of brain science, psychology, coaching as well as principles of adult learning and unlearning.
