Picasso had a perfect technical grasp of painting. He was thoroughly versed in the tradition from which he chose to deviate in expression of his otherness, his different view of reality.
Picasso is reported to have said ‘Je ne cherche pas, je trouve’ (‘I don’t seek, I find’).
Even when an employee perfectly understands the requirements of his or her job with regard to the technical aspects and the content, it can still happen that he or she fails to ‘connect’ with an organisation. The philosophy that drives our method of working with people is not geared towards clear-cut, uniform results, but rather towards the ways in which people can contribute to an organisation by virtue of their different qualities.
Diversity bvba helps people, both individually and within a team, to understand the tensions between technical performance, functioning in relation to others, and the need to deviate from the prescribed methods. After all, it is in this deviation that we experience the need for creativity and realise what it means to be ‘different’.
Diversity bvba helps organisations to understand the tension between technique and innovation as a productive tension.
Who dares to make the difference and to be different?
Who understands his or her own difference?
Who understands the ways in which an organisation can travel a different path?
