Goal: To Break the CYCLE OF DEPENDENCY
We are a group of educators from academic, corporate, and financial backgrounds seeking to create holistic change in various organizations. Our goal is to train people to use inquiry style analyses in everyday practices, understand the results, and formulate a plan to produce desired outcomes.
According to most social theories, culture is a generational mindset, and thus, in order to reverse undesired patterns, an individual or organization must literally discredit what they have come to know as truths.
The Inquiry Bridge Institute is a fluid developmental exercise (23 STEPS) in expediting this learning curve. The idea of the bridge first came from Dr. Fred Anderson, a professor of early colonial American History at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Dr. Anderson utilized the basic design of a suspension bridge to help students to deconstruct any given historical narrative... One of the most important ways we understand the world is through the stories we use to describe it, but not all stories are the same, because not all are created according to the same rules.
We have taken the suspension bridge model, applied inquiry based theory, and developed a practical symposium for individuals and organizations to talk about the rules, create a common framework and vision, and inspect the steps towards positive development.
