What makes your innovation unique?

Human inteligence and behavior are conditionated by perception. Human inhability to perceive nature inteligence & sustainability principles makes from entrepreneurial projets (based on sustainability design) a process in which only intelectual awareness is "the center" of the management process. If only intelectual inteligence is applied in management, projects have a great risk to set up goals and lead processes that do not belong to the emotional capacity of its members, neither to their awareness or natural behavior.Left brain management is based on 15% of human capacity.
Elements Management advance individual & organization capacity and peformance (decision taking, sustainability design, communication and colaboration), by transfering to teams,CEOs & entrepreneurs the hability to perceive nature principles,identify new possibilities & implement innovative solutions.
Elements management training is based on sensory-emotional awareness of nature principles,an "organic & emotional" understanding of sustainability.
"The Elements" are about 81 principles that are self organized (in 9 Mandalas or Perception models) following nature inteligence.
Students learn how to let nature principles do their work, instead of telling nature what to do, collaborating with nature. This guideline works also for human collaboration, as nature principles can be found and are ideal to support human collaboration, behavior and inteligence.
The elements management training starts by observing life principles operate in nature, individuals daily life, human collaboration (from relationships -couples- to teams,family, community,organization,culture,global development), and continues by learning how to utilize EM Methods, and EM900 standard (9 Development levels),in order to design and manage every aspect of the organization based on EM Sustainability.
Elements Management provides training, network & mentorship to organizations, communities & entrepreneuers that apply the EM Know How

Tell us about the social impact of your innovation. Please include both numbers and stories as evidence of this impact

Along 12 years of travels, in southamerica and europe L.D. Maldonado Fonken had the possibility to support and colaborate with NGOs, non-profit and for-profit organizations.
Based on the results of workshops, consultancy, mentorship and education programs, CEOS, teams and entrepreneuers show a meanigfull development of skills, change of perceiving and thinking and behavior habits and enhance management and design, now by understanding sustainability thinking.
CEOs of for profit organizations identify new risks and weaknesses into their business proces and planning, while understanding the lack of integral sustainability it expresses. A new kind of common sense and peception of their business activity arises.
Management of projects (with sustainability design), becomes more easy and more effective for entrepreneuers comming from professions like: arts, health, alternative health, eco farming, education, and others with more right brain activity along daily tasks.
In addition, other professionals comming from professionals fields like management, finnances, IT, industries, engeneering, tourism become more sensitive to human side of projects and its organic and emotional development process.
In youth it is possible to observe how to understand and apply natur principles becomes easy and natural, faster than in adults. Youth is able to integrate this sensory-emotional know how to their daily life faster.
In Education, faciltatores, highschool teachers, enhance their skills to transfer their knowledge to students and adults.
Within every discipline in which humans are envolved, an important change in the quality of the human collaboration experience, communication and cocreativity arises.

Problem: Describe the primary problem(s) that your innovation is addressing

Management of powerful and creative ideas, is daily challenged by human factor. As modern human beheavior and inteligence does not express a natural tendency to sustainability, projects design and development process fail in about 75% of cases becouse human factor.
By observing carefully the "quality of experience" teams and management experience along their collaboration processs, it is possible to identify a great lack of satisfaction, even projects goals might fulfill own visions and values.
The modern management push ideas and look for achieving goals, instead of leading process and caring for emotional and organic development of projects.
Sustainability is not about receiving new customers always nor about keeping the customers an organization has, but about transfering know how, experience and sucess to future generations.
Agreat percent of modern organizations shows a behavior able to survive for 1 to 2 generations.
What is missed, is the perception of the process development; and the capacity and methods necessary to adjust this process to nature principles, an inteligence of sustainability, collective awareness and quality of human collaboration experience.

Since he was a child, was motivated by a vision of a future human society in which humans collaborate with each other and with nature in order to cocreate an harmonious way of sustainable living, L.D. Maldonado Fonken decided to continue studies and experiences gathering all necessary knowledge in a variety of fields, science and social disciplines, human knowledge and understanding of nature and human experience.

Between 1993 and 1996 L.D. Maldonado Fonken did organize a workshop for university students, apply own intuitive and empiric know how regards human factor, nature principles, communication, collaboration and management.

While living abroad traveling, (1996/7-2008) applying own knowledge within a variety of cultural backgrounds and industries, the understanding of the triggers of the natural capacity of humans to tune and express nature principles through own way of thinking, perceiving, awareness, emotions and behavior.

While experiencing nature, by discovering, based on observation and perception, how nature applies truelly inteligent principles in order to sustain its own life, and how humans exposed to the same nature principles experiences, also, naturally, adjust own behavior according to this new state of awareness.
