Skill


Both by design and by their intended ‘natures,’ squareONE’s tools range from bread-and-butter discovery tools to very precisely aimed dialogical tools.

Custom designs produce powerfully capable learning programs aimed to support the growth of self awareness, and, social awareness in teams. All such applications are by design advanced beyond conventional  assessment and training. The main focal points of squareONE’s capabilities in the professional and organizational development arenas are:  (1) building exploratory and discovery capacity, (2) increasing understanding about human system dynamics, (3) humanizing organizational awareness by deep diving into its human equation.

Discovery-oriented tools implicate broad opportunities for application in small groups or one-on-one. These fun and often amazing applications emphasize exploration, novelty, and playful interplay and integration of learning.
