Explore the Kintla® Approach
Clients define their desired change outcomes and reflect on the past to identify what individuals and teams need to do to make those changes happen. Outcomes may involve closing gaps in performance and implementing strategy, or more fundamental goals such as increased creativity or innovation.
TripleRC helps people learn and apply neuroscience principles to become aware of ways to optimize their productivity and to identify and avoid their emotional tripwires. The four elements of TripleRC℠ are 1. Recognition: noticing and naming stress and emotions; 2. Regulation: enhancing how we manage our stress levels and influence others to do the same, 3. Reflection: improving how we think about and learn from experiences; and 4. Change: converting our learning into durable changes in Daily Operating Rhythm.
Daily Operating Rhythm
Daily Operating Rhythm is a tool that builds a bridge between learning experiences and daily habits to help embed learning and change in the daily patterns of its users. Individuals using Daily Operating Rhythm identify what they can do more of to enhance their day and what they can do less of to improve their effectiveness. Daily Operating Rhythm targets small, attainable, persistent changes every day that add up to significant shifts over time.
Don't Take the Bait
Emotional tripwires activate automatic and sometimes extreme reactions. We help people review their past patterns, identify their hot buttons, and look ahead to identify problem areas proactively. Techniques may involve top-down or bottom-up regulation to manage defensive and reactive neurobiological reactions.
More Versus Less
Changes in Daily Operating Rhythm are not absolute. Behavior changes from day to day and change goals must be flexible. Participants learn to identify the pattern shift they want to make by generating a list of behaviors consistent with the shift (more of) and not consistent with the shift (less of).
3 Minute Conversations
The 3-minute conversation is a quick practice to change interaction patterns with others. We help people plan several 3-minute conversations each day to ask others around them what is going well and why. These conversations help people reflect on their successes and provide an opportunity for positive communication.
High Performance Teamwork
The High Performance Team (HPT) process engages natural teams in aligning their collective Daily Operating Rhythm to improve effectiveness. Team members strengthen their relationships by learning to question and challenge in a constructive way in order to reach agreement on how to improve.
Our reflection tools intentionally shift thinking by helping people: 1. notice and learn from experiences, and 2. make sense of existing knowledge to solve problems or develop new ideas. People learn to codify their experiences and thoughts, consider their meaning, and generate actionable ideas. Through brief practice sessions, they learn to review stored ‘facts’ and knowledge and re-process information to make creative connections between previously disconnected content. Our approach does not require “off line” meditation or long quiet periods; reflection can occur many times a day and in minutes, seconds or milliseconds as part of the Daily Operating Rhythm.
Group reflection sessions bring together small groups to review what is going well and what can be improved. Individuals share their own experiences and listen to and comment on the experiences of others. Facilitators stimulate discussion, balance participation, and encourage participants to identify learning from their experiences.
