"You really listen. And you link ideas and insights in ways that enable new thinking and innovation."

 

"Honestly, Raoul helped us learn to walk again – but always with mutual respect!"

 

"Didn't just help cope with the stress & tasks – also helped grow as a person."

 

"Deep and empathic – and yet delivering what he promises."

 




Raoul Pilcicki is an entrepreneur, advisor, facilitator, community-initiator and ever-learning student. He spends a good deal of his time focussing on Collective Learning, Innovation Strategies and Self-Management in Organizations and Communities. In a unique and participative way, his methodology links reflective and creative practices with cutting-edge approaches from the world of Communication, Organizational Design and Systems Engineering. Sounds crazy, but makes sense. 

 

Over the past 10 years, Raoul has internationally worked and trained with various masters and thought leaders from the fields of Agile- and Self-Management (Frederic Laloux et al), Peer-Learning and Co-Creation (Otto Scharmer et al), Systems Engineering (Tim Weilkiens et al) and Human-Centered Design. He was chairman of a non-profit association dedicated to the study and practice of Zen-meditation. Raoul has worked for Cities, Non-Profits and Businesses big and small. He works both in- and outside the EU. 

 

Raoul is a member of the German Society for System Dynamics. Apart from client engagements and his love for ceramics and painting, He is also involved in research projects with universities around the following topics:

• Trust & uncertainty in teams

• Collaboration in virtual communities

• Aesthetic practices in organizations


Latest loose thoughts

• High Tech is becoming a commodity and Innovation is being pushed more and more "towards the edges" of society, away from major players (according Joi Ito, MIT Media Lab, i.e.).

• Blockchain Technology is able to bring together Facilitation, Verification and Enforcement (of contracts) in one place.

• Our brains are tools from the stone age.

• Many (digital) tools seem to help us in the first place, but then tend to hinder & harm our capacity to focus, pay attention and empathize with others – which is becoming increasingly important as more jobs become automated.

• A reasonable strategy is not merely based on behavioural change, but structural support & processual ease.

• To generate Insight, a great way is to fuse practice and reflection into each other.

• We equally need the ability to trust (suspend uncertainty in order to act), as well as doubt (hold uncertainty in order to learn) > Both qualities deepen, depending on each other.

• The more we realize, the harder we have to apply ourselves (according to 17th century Zen Master Hakuin Ekaku).
