MeshWORKS, a core technlology
developed by Dr. Don Beck, enables the essential process of integrating,
aligning, and synergizing resources, to meet the needs of people
at different stages of development, by mobilizing all resources
like laser-beams on specific challenges, goals, objectives or
By their very nature, MeshWORKS
foundations search for a central objective for which it seeks
to ‘mesh’ people, organizations, and other resources.
Such a transcendent purpose gives the foundation the high levels
of trust, integrity, legitimacy, and respect that it will need
to attract high levels of funding and also bring diverse elements
together in common cause.
MeshWORKS-type foundations will
thus be able to actually do the following that other models cannot
or do not accomplish :
A MeshWORKS foundation will
learn how to align its own resources, stakeholders, clients,
and customers so that internal operations run in a smooth,
positive, and additive way.
A MeshWORKS foundation understands
the decision-making ‘codes’ inherent in all of
the other six foundation types, to enable it to mesh them
in common cause, enlist them in cooperative projects, or elicit
funds from them for the larger, transcendent mission. This
skill in marketing and fund-raising also extends to other
funding sources, media interests, and technological assets.
A MeshWORKS foundation thinks
in a time-line fashion in that it meshes the past, present,
and future into an integrated wholeness to avoid generational
gaps, historical cul-de-sacs, or total focus on dealing only
with contemporary issues, problems, or situations. It both
sees and takes the long view while dealing in tactical issues
on a daily basis.
A MeshWORKS foundation is
more interested in what is right rather than who is right;
who has competency rather than status; and stresses what is
natural (rather than artificial or contrived). This thinking
occurs in highly functional flex-flow states as it is synchronized,
and even harmonizes what appear to be discordant chords, frequencies,
and conflicting forms of energy.
A MeshWORKS foundation measures
and assesses itself based on what it is able to accomplish,
whether it has been successful with the unique win:win:win
(The Third Win) strategy, and to what extent it has created
greater abundance (wealth, technological knowledge, greater
access to resources, higher life quality, more people being
helped in better ways and at less cost, a healthier family,
community, society, or world, etc.)
A MeshWORKS foundation always
has an eye on building something for the future; contributes
to a growing body o knowledge; creates innovative ‘skunkworks’
initiatives; and searches for ideas, concepts, and solutions
from far beyond its own discipline, boundaries, or spheres
of influence. Such a ‘WORKS’ is always a project
A MeshWORKS foundation continues
to renew itself, absorb fresh ideas, tap-in to new resources,
redefine its macro and micro goals, learn from mistakes, and
be open to constant change, transitions, and transformations.
A MeshWORKS foundation possesses
an uncanny ability to morph itself to find rapport, identify
with, and shape itself and connect with a number of different
organizations, interest groups, political groupings, and professional
societies. This capacity is essential since it must mesh with
these resources to accomplish the Third Win objectives.
Thus, MeshWeavers are able to
infuse into the Constructive Dialogue an understanding of the
deeper value system codes so that efforts can be tailored for
specific situations and different levels of thinking in the people
involved. Such an effort can provide the cohesive principle that
is missing in the age of fragmentation. This approach can generate
transpartisan approaches to policy formulation that are vastly
superior to either partisan or bipartisan efforts.
The key technology here is to
place competing values system codes on the ends of the paradox
to demonstrate how both/and thinking is superior to either/or
ultimatums. This would be a creative way to demonstrate how pro-growth
and pro-quality of life can often find ways to accomplish both
in a synergistic fashion.
