Murrimatters views complex challenges as those which often shift and change and defy simple one-off solutions. We aim to improve organisational cultural capability by resetting relationships and ways of communicating. Through Engoori®, Murrimatters supports the development of organisational cultural capability.

Engoori® facilitates the necessary dialogue to reset relationships, cultures and strategic directions. It is a strengths-based, conversational process for dealing with complex intercultural challenges. Its approach is to first gain a shared understanding of how we want to be together. From there, people are better placed to discuss the actual challenges they face, to frame the problem, and understand the assumptions driving constraining attitudes and practices.

 

The management of people and organisations, particularly in cross-cultural contexts in conjunction with environments constrained by political, financial and temporal criteria, often present complex challenges. A key requirement in working with complexity is the creation of robust organisational cultures, within which the topics listed all play a significant part.

 

Critical to Murrimatters’ approach is to start from a position that builds on the existing strengths of the people we work with. Our approach requires participants to be reflexive of their own practices and to actively challenge themselves and shift their behaviours and assumptions if required. 

Murrimatters provides opportunities through a structured process to learn from other self-motivated people who are already doing great work within their sector. We recognises the knowledge and skills already present in the client group and work with those strengths to enhance individual and group capacity to successfully meet the challenges that people face. In view of this, we work with people to enhance their ability to participate in processes to:

  • Understand personal perceptions, thoughts, judgements, actions and responses to inter-cultural contexts. 

  • Interact and engage in dialogue with people who hold differing perceptions, thoughts, judgements, actions and responses in a variety of contexts to move forward.

  • Identify specific group patterns of perceiving, thinking, judging, responding and behaving that are enabling and those that are disabling 

  • Work together to create other ways of moving forward that acknowledge and honour, local heritage and cultural specifics. 

 

Our approach engages participants in strength-based conversations that focus on both individual uniqueness and on group cohesion and connectivity. We engage participants in reflective and conversational processes to:

  • deepen self-awareness, 

  • build robust group cultures 

  • enhance connectivity and trust, and

  • set personal and collective leadership challenges.
