Emergent Associates' Unique Technology

Emergent grounds its coaching, consulting and training in the framework of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a powerful change methodology developed at Case Western University, and based in principles of social constructionism, image theory and grounded research. Imagine benefiting from techniques that have helped foster success for large corporations (British Airways, Verizon), universities (University of California Berkeley) and global initiatives (United Religions Initiative), as well as for individuals of all backgrounds and personalities, and for families and communities throughout the world.

Now imagine those techniques enhanced even further to help you make the right moves as you step toward satisfaction. Within this framework of AI, we synthesize insights, tools and methods, such as:
  • Emergent Communication Techniques that combine methodologies such as Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), the SET model, Carl Jung's archetypes and Appreciative Inquiry's 4-D Cycle
  • Human Systems Emergence Mapping, a dynamic model of personal growth that integrates:
    • Individual asset schema such as the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI), Enneagram, Carl Jung's typologies, Gallup's StrengthsFinder, People Management's System of Identifying Motivated Abilities (SIMA) and Appreciative Inquiry's Positive Core
    • Models of universal human needs such as Maslow's hierarchy of needs
    • Positive psychology, including the study of flow and optimal experience
  • Human System Dynamics, including concepts from Systems Theory, System Dynamics, Complexity Science, Complex Adaptive Systems, Chaos Theory and Systems Thinking
  • Other Related Systems-Based Knowledge such as Evolutionary Theory, Network Science, and Ecology
