Hi, I'm Fabrice Gagnant

a 34-year-old Roman Catholic anthropologist from France. Specialized in systemic, I am passionate about analyzing human structures and building lightweight solutions which protect life.

I help organizations reducing their internal and external losses and sufferings, while serving their raison d’être. This might concern losses of materials, of energy, of budget, of opportunities… and physical, psychological or environmental sufferings.

methodology

.

To reach this goal, I use 6 main tools:

  • field immersion
  • theological understanding
  • minimalism
  • consciousness boost
  • margins exploration
  • systemic levers

.

1. FIELD IMMERSION

.

After clearly defining the reason of being of the organization, I spend time in it to analyze its functioning and set up a full diagnostic.

.

2. THEOLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING

.

While studying theological sources, slowly emerge a divine logic, very different from the usual human one. This invites us far beyond the simple strategic level – mainly woven with ruses, calculations and fears – towards consistency, authenticity and a self-giving horizon, for Love. It is crucial for me to fully integrate this divine logic in our life and work, to not loose our soul on the track.

3. MINIMALISM

.

Trying to grow sales to increase the organization’s profit results in more energy and resource consumption, more waste and more competition. Instead, I focus on reducing sufferings and losses. Doing so, brings sustainability, profitability, lightness, wellness and joy.

Many try to heal the symptoms of their hyperactivity by doing more, ending up as a hamster in a wheel. But true solutions often lay in removing the inessential. Therefore, the solutions I design reflect this minimalist spirit.

Savings you will make will largely cover the costs related to my mission.

Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,the solutions remain embarrassingly simple

4. CONSCIOUSNESS BOOST

.

Each organization runs on a certain level of consciousness, restricted by the own level of consciousness of its CEO. (The teal approach being the highest level identified so far.) Members who occupy a lower position in the organization chart, but who have a higher level of consciousness than their line managers, will see their potential persistently restrained and may suffer constantly. Confronted with this, systemic anthropology – by offering a global and deep understanding of our world – provides an amazing tool to raise the level of consciousness of CEOs, which may then free the potential that lies within their organizations.

.

5. MARGINS EXPLORATION

.

Challenges we’re facing require deep adaptations for organizations which plan to survive (88% of F500 companies vanished since 1955). And adapting requires minds which can think outside the box.

However, most educational systems aim to shape implementers – not radical thinkers, and let alone wise individuals – making conformism the main criterion for graduation. As a result, in a recent report, French National School of Administration (ENA) has been alarmed about the “stereotypical way of thinking” of their candidates for admission.

Again, systemic anthropology helps to step out of conventional frameworks and to reconnect with solid bases.

.

6. SYSTEMIC LEVERS

.

In contrast to usual approaches, what I call a “systemic lever” is a sharp solution which produces maximum impact with minimal effort. By identifying and acting around hotspots, systemic levers unlock great transformation forces.

SHORT BIO

I early adopted an extremely light life style that allowed me to travel the world for years with barely no money – walking, hitch hiking cars and boats, sleeping under the stars and sharing the life of people of all conditions.

After graduating in political sciences, I studied systemic anthropology for a decade and, then, theology, thanks to Maria Valtorta.

Beside work, I play Go, love long hikes and enrich my gardening skills.

I also launched the shared university LZ, run the W studio – an UX and digital enterprise – and volunteer on different ecological and social projects.
