Syntropic Mentoring and Coaching
Build a Syntropic Enterprise with support.
We do it for you
Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting uses an integral approach
Develop the Steward Leader
Development of our Steward Leadership capabilities and capacities is a journey not a destination. One clear indication of success will be that the leader will spend minimal time on internal relational issues.
Apply the Syntropic Principles
The Syntropic Principles are a reframe of almost every business-as-usual tool. It takes time to unlearn, learn and become fluent in the new models and language. The process is often ‘to go fast, slow down.” Like an exponential curve, once momentum is reached, we might fly.
Create a culture of collaboration, self management and integral development
The culture of a Syntropic Enterprise is one of the key indicators of success. Synergy – where the outcomes are exponentially greater than anticipated – occurring consistently because we have the relational dynamic in outstanding shape, is an intention we hold.
Create products and services that truly serve a Syntropic World
We are not aiming for perfection. We are aiming to step clearly and boldly towards products and services that leave everything better, in all domains.
Evolve the teams ability to respond to increasing complexity and emergence
Development of everyone and all of our services is inbuilt into our enterprise architecture. We get to grow up as we create and build a Syntropic Enterprise. Accountability. Responsibility. Integrity
We offer two pathways to Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting
1. Each year Christine McDougall has 4 places at any one time for 1-1 mentoring. Each offering is bespoke to the situation, to suit your need, timing and budget.
2. We have a global team of Syntropic Coaches to suit your exact needs. Many of them have their own speciality area which gives you the opportunity to find deeply aligned coaches fluent in the Syntropic Principles.
We do it for you!
This is for businesses that seek to bring Syntropic Principles into their workplace either in whole or a part.
1. Comprehensive understanding of the current ecology and the desired future.
2. A co-created design response that ensures an appropriate or minimal amount of distruption.
3. We get to work bringing in our Syntropic Coaching team as needed.
4. There is a constant iterative and reflective process. Not one strategy driven through, rather a step-by-step design that responds elegantly to emergence.

How Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting works
Complete the Application form
We keep it simple and easy to complete.
We schedule a mutually agreeable inquiry call
This call allows you to determine if Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting is the right fit for you. It also allows Syntropic World to determine if we are the right solution for you.
A Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting Agreement is prepared for signing
Most of our work is bespoke to fit timelines, budgets and cultural ecologies. While we might recommend a fixed term, our agreement never insists on a fixed term. The relationship needs to work. If it does not, it is ended before the end of the term without penalty.
We get started
Our work application is based on Syntropic Principles. While we might have a plan, each step we take changes the field of play. We work with emergence, rather than seek to impose a human timeline on a living system. It is a very collaborative, co-creative partnership.
Review is a constant
Our work together needs to work for all parties. Our relationship is based on Clean Communication – which means that we surface any possible issues with each other as soon as possible, including that the time for our work together is ending for natural or adverse reasons.
Syntropic Mentoring and Consulting is more than a commercial relationship
Integrity and care are embedded into the Pattern Intgrity of everything we do at Syntropic World.
While we have skills and experience in both the Syntropic Principles we are also humans, with diverse experience and our own peccadillos and foibles. We invite Clean Communication and wholehearted feedback within Syntropic World, from each other and in any of our relationships.
We do not seek perfection, nor to be held on any pedestal. In many things we too are trying to figure things out.
A great client relationship has care and respect encoded.
