How we work

Insperocenter is a nonprofit, value based foundation that supports individuals, groups, leaders, communities and organizations within a context of systemic, narrative and strengths based development and knowledge.

We look for people’s recourses and reach out for unexpected potential. Our aim is to spread systemic and strengths based work and to support people and systems to give their best related to a good life, dreams and mission.

Our values are closely connected to a social-constructionist worldview and philosophy. We believe that we as human beings co-create our world and our understanding. We become within relationships to each other. Through relational and communicative processes we are always emerging as individuals and groups.

We also create our worlds and understanding through the words we use and the stories we tell about ourselves and others. These stories and the words we use could be more or less helpful. People can be stuck in more or less helpful communicative and relational processes and patterns. Our work will be to help people move into helpful patterns and stories.

We believe in human capacity and that everyone have unknown potential. We sometimes call ourselves inspire-actors and want to inspire into action.

Our approach is to build on skills and to involve people in their own goals and dreams. We encourage individuals and groups to explore and grow their skills while involving them into a process of reaching their potential. We value the importance of clear goals in focus and collaborative, appreciative and creative methods.

 

Our aim

Our aim is to:

* Co-create contexts with our collaborators that will increase growth. Contexts that will capture human and systems’ strengths.

* Support the creation of contexts that will bring out the very best of people, groups, communities and organizations.

* Contribute to a sustainable development where individuals and groups through their own resources can move on towards the future they would like to see.

 

Our approach

Our ways of working are:

* Work with systemic, narrative and strengths-based processes. We have our own unique Arise process which includes a resource and potential analysis of the organization and also a process for strengths-based change. This is a process which also is inspired by Appreciative Inquiry ideas.

* We aim at supporting leaders in their leadership so that they in their turn can support the members of their organizations to be able to give their best; increase motivation, engagement, potential, responsibility and goal focus in organizations. With the aim to increase a healthy and value based organization which in its turn can give its best towards clients and communities related to their task and mission.

* Support schools in a way that enables children and teenagers to develop their social and emotional skills to be able to use the school system and their own potential in the best way. To be able to manage and succeed in their own unique way in their natural environment.

* Development programs at schools – Strengths based work with school systems, inspired by Appreciative Inquiry and our Arise process.

* Parents program that we call parent power groups. Groups that encourage parent’s abilities and potential. The aim is to encourage parents and to highlight for them important issues by creating a multi-resource group within which they can support each-other to support their children in the best way.

* We offer education, seminars and coaching within the positive powers of systemic and narrative, practices, theory and strengths based method.

* We also support organizations and companies to develop their social corporate responsibility

Insperocenter is a value based foundation that aims at supporting development projects around the world based on strengths based methods. Insperocenter works mainly by building on peoples and groups own recourses to support people to arise from their recourses, become more confident and strengthened to take actions towards the future they want.

Insperocenter works in a way that brings people in to the strategic planning and brings the universal strengths into the context of development.
Our appreciative approach is based on the belief that people give meaning to their world in their own unique way.

We believe that it is important to appreciate people’s social constructions.

We look at the world and people’s understanding with the eyes of wonder. With the view of being friendly foreigners we will be able to visit each other’s understanding. Through helpful and strengths based approaches and questions we support helpful stories and patterns.

We put relational and communicative interactions in the front for development. We also highlight the importance of language and believe that “words create worlds”.

The appreciative approach value people’s good intention, highlights what people value in life, honors their understanding and dreams of the future.
