Group of people positioned on a set of steps, collectively holding an upward arrow that's moving from bottom left to upper right.

We all yearn for meaningful and productive lives in our families, our communities, and our professional endeavors. Flexible Engagement addresses these yearnings by combining Prosocial, an entirely new approach to engaging in group endeavors, with the Matrix, a visual framework for increasing individual and group flexibility, thus equipping business organizations to achieve success throughout all aspects of their operations.

What is Flexible Engagement?

Flexible Engagement is the behavioral process of determining, implementing, and making warranted changes to sustain a productive course of action for individuals, groups and organizations, especially during emotionally challenging times.

Flexible Engagement enables organizations to find common ground and achieve shared purposes, while aligning individual autonomy with group responsibilities. It also prepares organizations to make warranted course corrections, to address the tensions and conflicts that inevitably arise in organizational life, and to interact productively with their external environments.

What is Prosocial?

Prosocial is the science of enhancing cooperation and collaboration within and between groups. It is based in the latest developments in Evolutionary Theory, which now recognizes that groups as well as individuals are selected for their ability to successfully adapt to their environments. Prosocial is based in the Core Design Principles (CDP’s) of Successful Organizations for which Elinor Ostrom won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics.

What is The Matrix?

The Matrix is a diagram used to clarify the three main skills necessary for individuals to stay on track with meaningful activities under trying circumstances: awareness of what actually is going on within and around us, openness to our emotional reactivity, and engagement in doing what matters even when doing so is difficult.
