I Want to be Human – Also in Organizations

I Want to be Human – Also in Organizations

In this episode we speak with Mariëlle Cuijpers, one of the members of the Genuine Contact Organization about her experience working with this holistic approach and how it is contributing to her lifelong learning journey.

In our conversation we touch on the importance of spirit as part of what gives meaning and how Genuine Contact allows for spirit to show up in work situations. Mariëlle shares her experience and understanding of Genuine Contact from her rich experience as a public policy researcher, a Yoga Teacher and student of Humanistic Studies. She speaks about what it was like to work as a member of the facilitation team that undertook the Strategic Plan Refresh for the Genuine Contact Organization and how it has been for her to incorporate what she is learning into her current consulting work.

Through its twists and turns across many areas of life Mariëlle shares with us her joy and wonder at exploring the interconnectedness of things, and how Genuine Contact provides beautiful ways to do just that.

How Inviting Multiple Intelligences Benefit the Whole Person

How Inviting Multiple Intelligences Benefit the Whole Person

In this episode we talk with our colleague Dr. Helga Hohn, a psychologist based in the Netherlands. She introduces us to Gardener’s concept of multiple intelligences and we speak about the alignment we experience between his approach and the holistic worldview of the Genuine Contact way of working.

Gardner's theory goes beyond IQ and EQ and distinguishes at least eight different intelligences: Visual-Spatial Intelligence, Linguistic- Verbal Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Intrapersonal Intelligence, Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, and Naturalistic Intelligence.

During our conversation Helga draws on her large body of theoretical and applied knowledge to shed light on the value of recognizing the unique mix of intelligence and wisdom within each person. She also talks about how Genuine Contact has enriched her work providing insights into creating learning containers where all intelligences can come out fully when people work together.

Helga is also a founding Board Member of aMI, the association of Multiple Intelligences (associatie van Meervoudige Intelligenties) and was active on the Board until January 2020. She supports her clients through her organization Mantra Coaching and Personal Development.
