Systemic vision: your company has Body, Mind, and Soul
Nowadays, many companies are already discovering that there is no more financial profit alone in the business world.
Values and ethics are an urgent concern — a commitment to “People, Planet and Profit.” Employees and the environment are seen as important as the economy.
A survey published in the USA in 2013 revealed that 6 out of 10 entrepreneurs developed techniques for balancing the triad Body, Mind, and Soul of their companies. However, this does not happen naturally, it requires different management: a systemic view.
Systemic view consists of the ability to understand systems according to the General Systems Theory approach, that is, to have knowledge of the whole, in order to allow analysis or interference in it. The systemic view is formed from knowledge of the concept and characteristics of the systems. It is the ability to identify links to particular facts of the system as a whole. It was developed out of the need for complex explanations required by science. But to understand the systemic view, we first need to outline the main characteristics of a system, among which we can mention:
A system is made up of parts.
All parts of a system must relate directly or indirectly.
A system is limited by the point of view of the observer or a group of observers.
One system can house another system.
A system is linked to time and space. (Source: Wikipedia)
The Systemic Vision brought these entrepreneurs the ability to concentrate time and effort on what the company really needs to achieve balance. With structured theoretical knowledge, techniques, tools, and practices, we can make a difference when it comes to innovation, quality and competitive intelligence.
My story. My school with a systemic view
After a few years, working with teenagers and adults, I realized the urgency to understand more deeply the personal needs of each client, identify them, and work on them one by one. This requires knowledge of different methodologies and backgrounds. I started attending courses and seminars on coaching, communication techniques, accelerated learning, leadership, motivation, neuroscience, neuroeducation, in order to have a solid background that would enable me to serve different audiences. Today, we use the best tools with agility during our processes, obtaining transforming results. Our goal is to implement value generation, aligning expectations with effective and evolutionary quality within the company’s processes, optimizing flows and structures, uniting businesses and ideas for processes

How large companies help balance their employees
There is a wide range of important perspectives. Bringing ethics and values to the workplace can lead to increased productivity and profitability, as well as employee retention, customer loyalty, and brand reputation.
In the Social and Business Financial Performance report, Mark Orlitsky of the University of Sydney (Australia) and Sara Rynes of the University of Iowa (USA) reviewed studies over the past 30 years and found a significant relationship between social and sustainable business practices, which resulted in “moderate” to “very positive” opinions.
A study was done at the University of Chicago by Professor Curtis Verschoor and published in “Management Accounting”, found that companies with a defined corporate commitment to ethical principles had better financial results than companies that do not make ethics a key component of their management.
Business Week magazine reported in a recent survey by McKinsey and Company in Australia that it achieved productivity and improved turnover when the company incorporated meditation and yoga techniques for its employees. Business Week also reported that 95% of Americans reject the idea that a company’s sole purpose is to make money.
A survey by business professor David Lewin of the University of California found that “companies that took part in actions to help the underprivileged community showed an improved financial picture over a two-year period.”
A growing movement
Today, companies are going through a stage of knowledge-based economic and social history. Some companies invest in expanding their employees’ Intellectual Capital because they believe that the process of organizational growth and evolution is directly linked to the development of people’s intellect. Human potential is the agent of transformation. The main value of this transformation is to invest in human development, thus generating greater operational efficiency, strategic conditioning, positive representation in the market, quality of life for employees, and economic and financial results.
When employees are encouraged to express their creativity and lead a healthier and more positive life, the result is a more satisfied and committed workforce. Happy people work harder and are more likely to stay in their jobs. A study of business performance by the respected Wilson Learning Company found that 39% of the variability in company performance is attributed to the personal satisfaction of employees. 47% of people mentioned that health and well-being are important elements for their happiness at work.
