Dear *|FNAME|*,

This is Martin and Tanja writing to you, Martin typing and Tanja checking. :-)

We are currently on retreat near Jyväskylä, in Central Finland, planning our future life and work together. This email shall be about work. :o)

We have become more and more interested in group collaboration lately. We have been working a lot with groups and organisations this year, hosting meetings and unconferences and helping people organise effectively around a shared purpose (or sometimes discovering that purpose). 

Our passion lies with effective, meaningful, intelligent, joyful, beautiful, engaging, collaborative work. We have found a way that we are practising ourselves, and we would like apply it further and share it.

This September, we will travel to the USA together, to participate in a training in Holacracy. It is an organisation method that facilitates a self-organisation process of a group, helping people work together effectively. We are fascinated with this approach because it brings together the best of defined, structured organisation (clarity of purpose, and in relationships and responsibilities) and of self-organisation (freedom and possibility for leadership by and development of the individual). It is also smart about using the "tensions" (disagreements, frustrations) that arise between people to learn and evolve the organisation.

After our return in September, we would like to meet people, groups and organisations who are interested in improving work and apply what we have learned over the last year:
  • Improving understanding, finding shared meaning and resolving conflict in groups using Circle Practise
  • Collaborating in engaging work meetings using Art of Hosting methods
  • Organising around a shared purpose using Holacracy.
This is where we need your help:
Could you recommend to us people, groups or organisations to who could be interested in what we are offering?
We are available for practical consulting work on specific situations; and for more general talks, workshops and trainings that teach the methods that we use. We are happy to travel anywhere, especially if it's south. ;-) Ideally there would be someone who you can speak to directly, introducing us personally, or a contact that you can pass on to us for us to engage with directly. We hope for very direct connections at this time, to fill up our calendar for September and October.

Also, do let us know if there is anything we can do for you directly. We'll be happy to help. 

Very much looking forward to hearing from you!

With love and excitement,

Martin & Tanja
