The AOE questionnaires

Is your organisation or team experiencing symptoms such as those shown below?

  • Poor performance, however measured
  • Persistent resistance to change (Some resistance to change is healthy.)
  • Distrust
  • Repeated storytelling relating to past events and/or people
  • Newcomers being unable to find their place in the organisation

Diagnose the ‘invisible dynamics’ that are causing the problem

Restoring sustainable organisational health and flow starts by identifying the Adverse Organisational Experiences that are giving rise to the observed symptoms. Simply treating the symptoms does not address their underlying cause.

The AOE questionnaires, developed by Brilliance Unlocked Ltd, are designed to help identify the potential sources of unresolved trauma in an organisational system (whether the entire organisation or a team). From these, it becomes possible to identify which systemic principle(s) have been violated and, from there, develop a plan to restore organisational health and flow.

For a comprehensive assessment of all the systemic principles, the organisational system needs to be viewed through three lenses, each has it’s own questionnaire:

  1. Historical perspective
  2. Current culture perspective
  3. Leadership perspective

After completing these diagnostic questionnaires, the next steps to take depend on which of the organisational systemic principles are found to be out of alignment.
