My name is Max Schupbach. In 1999, I founded a consulting group, which today is called maxfxx inc. maxfxx is active on six continents in over 20 countries. My colleagues and I work as organizational consultants, trainers, facilitators and coaches within a wide range of organizations and communities. The basis of our work is Worldwork, the sociological daughter of Processwork, which is the overarching paradigm that the researchers Drs. Amy and Arny Mindell developed. Processwork explains how awareness, flow and “reality” are connected and create process. The Processwork paradigm is characterized by theoretical rigor and scientific exactness on the one hand, and an emotional inclusiveness and love for nature and life on the other. In our work, we aim to show that according to our paradigm, these characteristic are inseparable and complementary.
Worldwork brings is a new way of thinking about and working within the complete spectrum of collective life and its organizational forms. At its core is a theory that links research in consciousness studies to fresh interpretations of findings in modern physics. Concepts that you will encounter in the introductory article below, such as Deep Democracy, Organizational Myth, Edge, etc., shed new light on our perceptions of organizational life. Worldwork allows a participatory view, as well as analysis and facilitation of emergence and change within groups on a variety of different scales; from global processes to local events, and from the public space to various organizational forms, including businesses and communities.
In the links below you will find a theoretical overview and three case descriptions that demonstrate the application of these methods in various settings: the diverse environment of a Fortune 500 company, a town meeting style open forum with conflicting stakeholders organized by the city of Zurich, Switzerland, and a study on process-oriented organizational development in a large correctional facility.
