Grow and Flourish
It’s our guiding principle and describes our approach to business and our company culture.
The Grow and Flourish concept
Grow and Flourish is our philosophy; it describes our approach to business and our company culture but it is so much more than that. It’s our guiding principle, a personal ambition that we all share in and runs through everything we do.
As an innovation group, we are no strangers to growth. We work to see our ideas and innovations grow and multiply. The biggest human factor for business growth and success is positive energy. Although the achievements of growth give us moments of sheer energy, the process itself costs a lot of energy. We understand that this energy needs to be replenished in order to maintain sustainable growth and success.
It’s a natural process
This process is comparable to a tulip. Soon after a tulip bulb is planted, it starts to grow and drains its bulb of energy. The plant utilizes this energy to shoot out its fresh green leaves. After a period of growth the tulip enters a period of flourishing; a beautiful flower emerges. The focus on growth is momentarily replaced by a focus on flourishing! The flower becomes attractive and uses this time to replenish its energy.
How we Grow and Flourish
We too need moments of flourishing to replenish our energy. Positive energy is found in joy and happiness, not in fear or pain. Essential for happiness is a sense of meaning and belonging. We must be aware of our purpose; we want to make the world a better place. We do this through our innovations. And we need to feel connected, a part of something. In our case, our tribe and our company’s unique culture.
Human flourishing comes in many shapes and forms, but it is always based on meaning and belonging.
In our case, we build connection and purpose by sharing “peak moments”. We make sure we value and use the different skills and qualities each of us bring to our tribe and we celebrate our successes together. We all get a lot more out of life when we contribute positively to the communities we touch and the planet that sustains us. We value this contribution and we have fun doing it too.
We have used our moments of flourishing to initiate a non-profit project based on our meaning: creating innovations that make the world a better place whilst being economically successful. As a team, we have come together to use our talents in this field to develop a strategy, technology and network to help entrepreneurs in upcoming economies to start recycling plastic!
Talking about meaning an belonging!
