The BLOCKBUSTERS Vision

The BLOCKBUSTERS Vision and Dream

Today's ecological, institutional, and spiritual crises call upon all of us to give our best selves. It takes emotional agility to deal with both the stress and struggle that goes with our journey towards a future fit society. It takes radical honesty to also know what it is you can do.

BLOCKBUSTERS is a consultancy, facilitator/partner network, and corporate community. Our programs help people at all levels to shape systemic change — people back on track, back in business.


WHY SYSTEMIC CHANGE?


Businesses operate in complex, multi-layered environments that need continuous adjustment to meet today's and tomorrow's needs. Everyday interactions change the wider trends. Wider societal trends on their turn are like mirrors to the souls of ourselves and businesses. How do we manage corporate responsibility and freedom? Outlooks show:

almost no global industry is profitable and sustainable
when all current externalities of their supply and delivery chains were included in their pricing(s)
30-70% of earth's life support systems is lost and impaired
endangering human survival; due to human and business intervention, exploitation, or commercialisation
40 % of the Fortune 500 companies will not exist
in 10 years; due to their in-capacity, in-ability, or un-willingness to adapt to system-wide dynamics and risks

WHY EMOTIONAL AGILITY?


Emotional self-regulation is key to seeing reality as it is. How do you stay in touch while intervening in underlying group dynamics? What is beyond the emotions and expressions of others? What is mine or yours? Being agile at emotions in a business context, empowers you to make clear, transparent, and widely-supported decisions with a concrete impact.

quarter employees view their job as the number 1 stressor
in their lives; career concerns, work roles, interpersonal relationships go before financial and family problems
25 % of workplace conflicts lead to sickness and absence
and nearly 10% reported project failure and over 30% of conflicts result in employees be fired/quit
50 % of today's corporate value lies in intangible assets
like the value of customer loyalty and the value of brand awareness; these dictate stock market valuation

WHY RADICAL HONESTY?


Radical honesty in business ensures long-term growth and development, employee and customer loyalty, and industry leadership. When you are radically honest about where you come from, what you bring now, and what future you want to build, you and your brand are more trustworthy — you speak with your action whilst your action speaks for itself.

5% of annual organizational revenues are lost to fraud
and when executives commit fraud, the median is 10x higher than the 75% workforce who steal regularly
60-90% of restructurings fail because of business cultures
while 82% of the employees do not trust their boss to tell the truth and 46% do not feel respected either
25% of millennials expect a work culture with honesty
to be one of the most important values a business should follow in order to have long-term success

STAKEHOLDER CAPITALISM AND SYSTEMIC STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT


At BLOCKBUSTERS we advocate stakeholder capitalism as a way toward sustainable company growth. It provides a mindset and way of running the business that supports you to continuously re-design your business interactions and impact. Time has come to fully integrate sustainability and corporate responsibility into your own and the industry's culture. We empower everyone in your organization to 'bust' the 'blocks' in your business culture and societal context. What breakthroughs do you need with stakeholders? For complex, multi-layered, multi-party issues, change needs to address the root cause. Once we zoom out and find the underlying dynamics that drive both internal and external stakeholder behaviour, we can change it. That is also why we believe in: people back on track, back in business. Our vision makes BLOCKBUSTERS the world's first systemic stakeholder engagement consultancy, as defined in the below:

SYSTEMIC
System-wide. Symptoms at one level in the organization reflect dynamics at the top or wider industry trends. Challenges (e.g. burnout, conflicts) that arise from these "unconscious dynamics" can be solved only when the big picture is seen.
STAKEHOLDER
Any party with a 'stake'/interest in a matter or venture. Stakeholders can be primary (e.g. customers, employees, suppliers) as well as secondary (e.g. government, activists, media) and contextual (e.g. the earth, past/future generations).
ENGAGEMENT
A multi-dimensional tapping into a stakeholder's essence and wisdom. Involvement can be on a rational, pragmatic, physical, emotional, energetic, and spiritual level. The key lies in moving head, heart, and hands of people and collectives.
