Create value on 5 levels

content GS Global Systemics_Triple Accounting

For a simple way to map value, click on the link just above here.
On every level, we have/create value every day:
value for the earth, material/financial value, emotional value, knowledge value, value for common good,…
We also have a negative, liability effect sometimes. We can work on it when we are able to measure consciously.

Then, we can “open space” to transform liabilities into assets, thus creating value. A sort of alchemy transforming lead into gold. The dream of all times. With human potential and creativity, well connected (read: contribute), we can achieve marvelous things for everybody, creating value for people by people.

Global Systemic Crisis: Fear or Hope ?

Global Systemics - Triple Accounting

Global Systemics - Triple Accounting

Markets are shaking, managements and companies are put in danger, employment is made vulnerable, people are heading unknown and stressing. Economic growth is slowing down. Well, isn’t it precisely the best option for the planet?
When we flash-back 3 years, let’s see what was the learning of this financial shock for people.
1. At first: fear and unknown rise: emotional and knowledge liabilities roze.
2. Then, we became more engaged, more creative, more respectful for what earth is giving us, for the “common good”.
3. We came up with new solutions, freed from conditioning and limiting beliefs.

When you look carefully at the “Global Systemics” balance sheets, there is, yes, a down of values because of liabilities that rize in a first phase. But every time, it stimulates people to innovate, get out of limiting beliefs, reconnect with their roots, resources, ideas, creativity, and respect a little more the “common project” and the earth which feeds us.

So I’m particularly optimistic in the perspective of the next months and years. We will be pulled out-of-comfort zones, and that’s exactly how we can become more creative. Urgency will mobilize potential and connect us with what’s truly important.

The center of the systems is the emotional balance sheet: positive heart values, trust, love, passion, engagement, motivation… By connecting us to our emotional intelligence, we’ll become more intelligent, use more of our brain, and come up with more connected attitudes and ideas.

With this content GS exel sheet, you can fill-in what is your personal situation, and potential, what is your companies’ and how it positions itself in your community, city or country.

So basicly I believe a shock is the best that can happen to us. It will stop frenetic growth addiction, stop pullution and toxin production, stimulate our creativity for new solutions, engance our love for people and earth, enhance respect for commun good project and earth.

Opportunities and dangers to measure Human Capital in hard currency

Triple Accounting attemps to calculate values and potential carried by people in the corporation. Intangible assets, emotional equity, knowledge equity, goodwill is mostly located in teams. But… if not well carried, these projects could slip into a negative spiral. Let’s check out why and how to avoid it.

Opportunities and potential:

1. Measure, monitor and benchmark impact of HR and CSR actions, as well as Sustainable Development projects, values and identity
2. Identify, valorize, estimate the amplitude of intangible value and potential (intangible/immaterial liabilities)
3. Enhance collective consciousness of where is the true value, within people
4. Explicit feelings and intuitions
5. Challenge financials and accounting with people issues
6. Recognize the value of employees
7. Reassure shareholders on long term
8. People’s strategy and perennity on long term


1. The figures and the “machine” enslaves people even more
2. People become a quantified tool to uniquely serve shareholder value
3. “Amortising ” and “charge off” of people as assets
4. It’s a little provokative to calculate people’s value in hard currency…
5. Never calculate individual financial value for people
6. Over-evaluation of people
7. War of egos and power


-> it has to be done in a benevolent way, with people as a value, not with people as an asset to “write off”
-> the exercice has to be done to create value for and by people, on 5 levels: earth, material, emotional, knowledge, common good
-> basic human ethics have to be respected
-> the core intention should be to create value for the people, for the corporate projects, for the surrounding

More pay – less performance…

This could explain why our so well paid leaders/bosses/poiliticians led us into such a mess !

They are very very very well paid. They have NOT found any solution inside the box yet, they are not willing enough to look outside the box. NOT performant.

In this video: evidence…

Deeply understand this evidence will change drastically our management mode: challenge + master + contribute = purpose => powerful engagement, innovation and problem-solving

The organization as a human being

The organization works as a human being

This is another way to look at an organization. Imagine it as a human being. Well then, who is who?

Brain: collective knowledge, corporate management and cockpit, KPI’s.
Blood: money
Mouth: marketing
Eyes and ears: corporate perception (web, people,…)
Legs and feet: production
Hands: services
Sexual organs: innovation and think tank
Heart: corporate values, vision, mission
Lungs: CSR
Stomach: resources supply chain
Kidneys: waste purification
Liver: waste recycling
Nerves: communication and piloting systems
Lymphatic system: values sharing

What would you think ? Do you have more ideas ?
Who is the belly-button and who is the tongue 🙂 ?

Corporate Acupuncture

Acting on an organization or company, to improve the efficiency, we can imagine doing “corporate acupuncture”. Put the needle on a point which will energize the whole system, like sending energy into a meridian. We don’t want any more to invade the body with surgery – this is expensive and time-consuming, a little shocking for some people too.

There are channels – medirians where we have to “sting” – which cross the whole organization.

1. Corporate Communication, internal & external

Effective communication is energizing the whole body of the company, especially if it is carried by strong and human values. It will mobilize everybody towards the same goal, vision and mission. It will make people learn from each other, sharing passion for the product and for innovation. It enhances recognition, internally for people, and externally for the brand. It will open up minds and mindsets towards improvement. It will activate the corporate perception on itself and on the outside world and environment toward more interconnectedness and sustainability.

2. CSR, Charity, Foundations

It mobilizes positive affection for the company as it engages for noble causes. It’s moving. In the 2 understandings. It touches the heart – and it moves people to engage for and with the organization. Far more than just greenwashing technology, it will create huge value for motivating people internally and will oblige to look at the brand differently, with an open heart. The art is to engage your own people to open their hearts and hands in these actions. It shouldn’t be isolated actions, disconnected, but connected to the business and carrying values of the business – with and for employees.

3. HR Development

Developing people and talent throughout the organization will empower the whole group. Everybody knows that. But developing the right qualities carrying the right values carrying the right corporate drivers is an art. Casting and putting the right people in charge – and giving them broad action scope, is an art. But it is always paying off largely more than the time and money invested into HR actions. When you see how much a payroll costs in the western world, it is a crime to consider people as a cost. They are your biggest asset.

4. Company Culture, Governance and Ethics

First your “north star”, mission and vision, then your strategy – regularly updated and benchmarked – and finally the “character” with which you will collectively act. Your ethics. Investing in these is a must because otherwise people don’t know where you are heading. They don’t vibrate with you on a “higher contribution” you may want to achieve. Then there is this kind of “societal politeness” with which you want to act: vulgar, aggressive, elegant, depressive, tonic, enthusiastic… what is your corporate character ? Investing in coherence with the values carrying the business pays off 100-times.

5. Sustainable Development

A collective project of respecting more our nourishing mother earth will mobilize everybody. Because everybody is worried about the planet for their children. It can be a fantastic opportunity to develop talent, performance and engagement. It’s a “north star” – and also an opportunity to give people a role, a goal, a transversal communication track to learn from each other and to work together. The positive human side-effects of projects around sustainable development are far higher than the direct profits from energy savings or recycling. Try.

6. Steps2HAV (steps to human added value)

It’s about opening space for emergence of “the new”. It can be attached to one of the 5 latter, or can be articulated around art (play music together), sports (healthy competition), social entrepreneurship (spin-offs with meaning), well-being and health (vitality, nutrition,…), creativity and innovation; mentoring (internal or external).

Here are a few conditions to make it happen:
regular time space – an appointment that we look forward to;
a physical hub or space;
values like respect, openness, trust, confidentiality, heart;
protected by the board;
during office hours;
process-controlled, not content controlled;
it’s a “journey” without beginning or end…

Corporate Meridians

Corporate Acupuncture

Acting on an organization or company, to improve the efficiency, we can imagine doing “corporate acupuncture”. Put the needle on a point which will energize the whole system, like sending energy into a meridian. We don’t want any more to invade the body with surgery – this is expensive and time-consuming, a little shocking for some people too.

Triple Accounting Corporate Meridians

Corporate meridians: business acupuncture for communication, social responsability and human development.

We just have limited resources and tools to energize the organization. So the choice of the moment, the place – the meridian, is very important.

But a needle pricks – it stings. We feel it clearly and sharply. That’s what the “feel-like” should be of corporate acupuncture. No anesthesia.

A very efficient way to do so is Triple Accounting. It detects and evaluates intangible values and especially intangible liabilities. Some of the latter are blocking as “glass ceilings”. These have to be stinged upon with precise “alchemic” approaches where a few keys have to be respected:

  • Give people a role
  • The Steps2HAV rules
  • Propose precise questions/intentions
  • Trust people
  • Bring outside elements to disturb and break existing belief patterns – or bring the group outside in an unknown context and… let them do – this means: let go (even if you have an agenda!)

Good luck !
