Resources for Teams and Organizations

Seeing Things Whole is developing a suite of resources for working with teams and organizations that desire a more explicitly values-based approach to planning and decision-making. These resources will help you adopt a multiple-bottom-lines orientation to thinking about your team or organization and its work in the world.

Many of our resources for leaders, including the Three-Fold Model of Individual Life and Seeing Things Whole Profile, are also helpful in your journey toward wholeness as a team or organization. We encourage you to explore our individual resources as a way to better understand your identity, purpose, and stewardship.


Three-Fold Model of Organizational Life

by David Specht and Dick Broholm

This piece invites you to explore a three dimensional understanding of organizational life—the intersection of the dimensions of identity, purpose and stewardship. Each dimension symbolizes a cluster of stakeholders, core values, and way of exercising power that are characteristically present within institutions. This piece is useful for exploring organizational dynamics and offers a framework for mapping values-based tensions and dilemmas within our organizations.
