Wat doet Hifluence? Welke problemen pakken we aan?
Our current society forces us to question everything like never before
We are in a whirlwind of change and never have we had to share our planet with so many others.
and that calls for a reassessment of really everything.
Hifluence builds on the power of change, finds the challenge in difficult questions and created waves
of positive energy from it. Why does every Hifluencer get out of bed in the morning?
We tell you with a lot of love.
A lightning-fast evolution
We all strive for productivity and control in our professional lives. And that’s very normal! This aspiration brought a lot of prosperity in the last century. Every day again, we notice we are pushing ourselves to our limits. In recent years, this has resulted – unfortunately – into heavy organizational bureaucracy, placing an ever-increasing burden on human performance and belonging.
For example, in a global study by CB Insights, 677 corporate executives indicated there are four main causes that are slowing down change and create a lack of innovation:
- Unclear strategy
- Slow decision processes
- Silo structures
- Lack of Ownership
The unique power of mankind throughout our evolution? That is our talent to connect groups of people around a common story. In other words: setting up organizations.
We like to compare an organization with an ‘interface’: this connects our internal environment (beliefs, culture, behaviour, structure and processes) seamlessly with our external environment (customers, partners, technology, the world). As long as the internal environment is suitable for the external environment, and vice versa, the organization will serve its purpose.
Stay up to date, keep your connection
Today we are looking at organizations with a 10,000-year-old view. This view is full of unique and indispensable insights into how our external world is constantly evolving and how we need to adapt our internal environment accordingly. But the latest major breakthrough? That was the Industrial Revolution. In other words: an old-fashioned, not up-to-date vision of the world.
And that is a challenge in every organization: the external environment continues to change fundamentally and continuously. The internal environment is outdated and can no longer follow. The result: you lose connection, create short-circuits – and fewer and fewer companies succeed in achieving their goal.
Restore the connection between internal and external
We therefore face an important and pressing challenge: adapting the internal environment of
our organizations to our constantly and exponentially changing external environment.
THE KEY QUESTION:
“what kind of organization does this new world need
and what role does it play in our lives?
Old versus new: we must make a choice … and quick!
We are in a divided world. On the one hand there are still big and old conflicts, both religious and politically driven. Within the framework of entrepreneurship of the modern 21st century, on the other hand, we strive for peace and tolerance.
This division brings us on the eve of great changes. The choice we now must make is at the individual level as well as at societal level. In any case, current technological developments are so rapid and far-reaching that we need a clear vision that gives us direction at all levels.
From Church & state to organizations & connection
We firmly believe that this clear vision will not come from religious leaders, politicians or other ideologies, as was mostly the case in the past. Not surprisingly: in our Western society, religious institutions have not been decisive determinants of values, beliefs, culture and systems for many years now. We also note that the relevance of – and belief in – politics is seriously declining.
RESULT: A social vacuum is being created and companies can and maybe should fill it.
In the past, organizations were formed in line with the views of Church and politics.
Tomorrow the reference point will be the world view of entrepreneurs.
Skeptical? Then look at the impact of giants such as Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook or Tesla on our society in the last ten years. When you add up the impact of all business leaders in the world, you will come to realize where the real levers to change our society are.
Today, there is no place or institution where we spend more time than at work.
Moreover, there is no other place where we are so intensely confronted with the realities of the technological revolution.
RESULT: Organizations developed into the ideal microcosm in which people work together, share visions
and set up new ways of communications. In short: a microcosm in which we live together.
And now? Revolution
At Hifluence we believe that this century will be revolutionary: this is the moment in history where our world view will be (re)shaped. In fact, we are already experiencing this change.
How we look at our place in the universe, in society, how we look at change, … it will all influenced by our experiences of the companies we work in.
And from there, we will integrate that view of the world into our lives – influencing politics and religion. And as with any world-shattering revolution, it won’t be top down – it’ll be bottom up.
Hifluence connects love with technology
We are looking for an answer to the question ‘how are we going to organize the companies of the future?
And ‘What does it mean to be human in the 21st century?
After all, it is the employees who will shape the new internal environment, one that is suitable for the external environment of the 21st century. It is employees – and not Church or state – who will have to make decisions and set forth the way ahead. After all, who do we want to be in a world where technology will match and surpass all human skills and intelligence? And what do we as human beings want to, can or should contribute in the short time we are here on this earth?
Hifluence looks for answers together with you
In everything we do, we strive to create a loving society in harmony with exciting new technology. We aim to organize a microcosm that reflects the loving and effective corporate culture and systems we are so much in need for.
Through consultancy and training, we plant as many seeds of this vision as possible in every organization that is willing and open to help develop this new reality.
We try to inspire as many people as possible, so that they in turn can inspire others. ‘Paying it forward’ as they sometimes call it.
Our purpose: the core, dreams, goals and expectations of Hifluence
By 2030 we want to inspire 200 companies with the same number of Hifluencers.
We do this because we believe this is necessary to have a significant impact on a world of love and joy, to help shape it and to influence the revolution from within.
