We are excited that you will join our 20th Model of the Month.
This time we will focus on “The Field”
“The Field has gone by many names down through the ages. We use the term to mean the interconnecting cosmic energy at the root of reality that conserves and conveys information. It is the constant and enduring record of all that has happened and will happen — the state of the system not just “at any given moment” as we describe it in the 22 Aspects of Memory, but at all moments taken as one Eternal Now. The idea suggests that the primary stuff of reality is consciousness, not matter, although the relationship between the two is complicated indeed!”
“Working while tuned into the Field is a fantastic experience. When you are tuned into it, your work is music to the ears. Your brain/mind/body is your instrument, your receiver. You just have to listen, then bring your energy into alignment with what is happening. When there is friction, the Field is disturbed and you can perceive the disruption. When there is harmony, magic can happen.”
The understanding of “GroupGenius” is a product of the experience with The Field. For that reason, the attached pdf not only contains the description of the model, but also corresponding Terms of Art. Please come prepared having read the materials provided, thank you.
Kindly come prepared to our session by having read the detailed descriptions of the model provided to you when you register for this workshop.
We not only share the model in discussion, but also corresponding terms of art to set the larger context.
Please plan to join us for a 90 minute facilitated session; we plan to stay on for another 30mins for informal discussions with Rob, Matt and Svenja thereafter.
What are the “Models of the Month” Webinars?
You may have found our organization because you believe in the power of intentional process design and facilitation to solve complex problems.
One key element of our work is based on the MGTaylor models, both as design templates for creating multi-stakeholder journeys towards concrete outcomes, as well as diagnostic or auditing tools to understand the current or future state of a situation, challenge, intention.
Given the current state of our planet and the complexity of humanity as a driving force within — and aiming at creating a future by design and not default — it is now even more important to collectively explore the models at hand, and how they allow us to navigate this complexity together.
How can we as practitioners become better at what we do in service of humanity?
We, therefore, invite you to join a monthly conversation about exactly that: exploring the MGTaylor models, sharing experiences and discussing their application in areas of great need.
Svenja is a facilitator and designer of large scale collaborative sessions. Her passion lies in building resilient communities and facilitating collaborative processes to solve complex challenges on a systems level. She cares a lot about the challenges the world is currently facing and wants to support connecting the dots in order to create impactful, meaningful solutions. She promotes listening to understand, not listening to speak, and holds the space for what is trying to emerge.
Being part the The Value Web, she took on lead design and facilitation roles for international engagements with the World Economic Forum, LEGO Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, International Red Cross & Red Crescent, INSEAD Business School, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Berlin Civil Society Centre, and many others
She believes in servant leadership, and that facilitation is all about making it easy.

Matt Taylor is a designer, inventor, teacher, facilitator, sailor and entrepreneur. He has focused his career on the application of architectural design methods to solving complex, systemic problems found at the intersection of physical environments, ecologies, organizational practices and visionary ideas. This work involves business processes, tool-sets and software programs, and includes their expression and utilization in the design, construction and use of virtual and physical environments for collaborative work and sustainable creative living. The components of these environments, and the environments themselves, are designed and built in regards their fit with, and long term impact on, social-economic-ecological systems.
