An experiment is a test of an idea or a method. It is used by scientists and engineers to study how well the idea matches the real world. In a broader sense, an experiment is all you do without knowing the result. Before an experiment you typically ask one of three questions: Is it true? Will it work? What emerges? From the answers you learn and adapt.
You can experiment with energy on a small, medium or large scale.
The small experiment involves one or a few people. The focus is on improving the personal energy to become more resilient, flexible and energetic. It’s also about finding personal meaning and pleasure in a relative and complex world.
The medium-sized experiment typically focuses on the social energy in and between groups, crews or teams. The aim is to improve the working atmosphere, collaboration and collective action-power. How can we create resonance and positive interference?
The large-scale experiment is for the whole organization including customers and external partners. The focus is on synchronization and integration. How can you balance frames and freedom to unfold the potential in fulfilling ways?
The size of the energy experiment and the risks or consequences are not directly related. Most often we perceive an experiment as dangerous or risky when we know only little about it or fear to become too dependent on an unpredictable outcome. The energy perspective lets you go beyond the normal limits to find new unexpected answers.
