The power of the circle for the fluid expression of our intelligences

How is it possible to unleash the full potential of team members in a company? The empirical researcher Jean-François Noubel (TEDxCannes 2021 speaker) talks about holomidal collective intelligence because it is distributed, as opposed to pyramidal collective intelligence with its "single point of failure" due to the concentration of power on a very small number of people.

It is possible to achieve a creative and liberating social optimum in organisations that is much stronger than usual. The adoption of round tables, in a circle, in a holomidal collective intelligence mode, allows everyone to have a "voice".

In the field of entertainment, the practices of Michel Laprise (TEDxCannes2017 speaker), writer and director at Cirque du Soleil, fully include the roundtable, the circle, which is the place for the most creative exchanges within the teams he leads.

Interacting in a circle will take your projects to the next level.

If the interactions are done remotely, the power of the circle can be found in the ability to exchange through the conferencing tools in an egalitarian and collective way. Prior awareness of what is happening in the physical world will help participants transfer their practices to the remote world.

Talk with English subtitles (click on the wheel) and French as original language.
