"We see you even when you no longer see yourself"

 
 
OUR MANIFESTO
 
Want to Volunteer?

Our purpose is to unlock the Intrinsic_Identity© of all people in service of more impactful and positive futures by empowering all people to realise we each have something unique and wonderful to contribute towards society and thus, our future. As a diverse world, WITH recognises that every single human being has something powerful and unique to contribute and that the emerging future ‘has’ to include all of us. Not only is this fair and equitable, but we believe it is the only way the world can operate in equilibrium and interdependence as part of its natural design. This requires that we make space for each play our part as a more equilibrated and interdependent world emerges. If one part of a system is dysfunctional, this dysfunction becomes systemic. This is why transparency is one of WITH’s greatest values, so we are able to see and view things at a much deeper level to ensure a healthy equilibrium. 

We see ourselves as a Social Enterprise promoting the services of trained Strengths Coaches in order to facilitate Strengths & Interdependence Adoption & Coaching Programmes, which include workshops, Coaching and ongoing Development. We aim to impact various environments including, but not limited to, Corporations, Education, Families & Individuals, covering environments which fit into the STEEP acronym - which we believe has the potential to change the future of the world by creating foundational programmes that act as a ‘Global Language of Understanding’.  

WITH entire premise is about creating significant global social & environmental impact by giving people agency over their own lives and environments. We teach each individual about their Intrinsic-Identity© and why this is an important ‘language’ with which to understand each other’s unique intrinsic value, motivation, and where our energy is derived from. Knowing one’s Intrinsic-Identity© we can also learn to manage our negative energies, and so mitigate conflict, building on our positive energies and thus, map people to roles and environments where they are more likely to thrive. This sets a foundation upon which to build a future with immense positive impact. 

 

Recognising that we are our happiest when helping others, our Social Responsibility Programme was formed with the intention of matching those in need to Mentors and/or Sponsors in order for these individuals to develop into their full potential. The programme is a cross sectoral partnership between business leaders and young people in need of guidance and a ‘hand up’ either through mentorship and/or sponsorship towards studies or micro business ideas.  This is a highly reciprocal learning process, building awareness, growth and, through the Strengths & Interdependence intervention WITH offers, gives both parties insight into the intrinsic value and motivation behind people, their contributions, purposes and helps to establish their ‘why’ in order to become self actualised people who are purpose driven. 

 

The partnerships have the possibility to unlock the most remarkable benefits - beyond just the network benefits, towards the connection of needs. They create and build extraordinarily close relationships between people who otherwise may never have engaged creating agency and hope and satisfying our deep longing to assist in building a better humanity. 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM VOLUNTEERING

We see the world is emerging as a collaborative energy where each person is able to volunteer their contributions and in return be part of something purposeful and greater than one’s self, whilst gaining useful experience which can then be utilised as credentialed information on their resume. Further to this, we believe that in order to build WITH Global into something more purposeful, we require people from all walks of life to bring their unique Intrinsic-Identity© and value to make the whole greater. This may be in the form of knowledge and ideas, methodologies, frameworks and tools that can help us to create greater value and expedite our purposeful vision in the world.

Our commitment to you is to offer a support group of intentional and conscious people who commit to see you for your Intrinsic-Identity© and commit to assist you to be the best version of yourself whilst creating an environment for you to develop and thrive whilst volunteering. We buy into the concept of a Deliberately Development Organisation (DDO) which looks at growth paths for all people where possible. With this in mind, should any of our volunteers require Mentoring and/or Sponsorship for their personal development and growth, over and above their volunteer work, this will be made known to WITH by the individual and we will make every effort to ‘match’ you to the correct person in as short a time as possible as our mission is focused on unlocking the positive untapped potential of all people including our volunteers. We would require that you write your ‘personal story’ which we will share on Social Media. WITH also commits where possible to unlock the Strengths of all of our Volunteers and match you with a Strengths Coach in order to continue your own individual learning of Strengths and Interdependence and this may include inviting you into one of our online Strengths Mastermind Groups and/or leading such a group. 

For relationships to be effective, one is required to be honest & open with each other and engage in WITH's Interdependent Rules of Engagement© as follows:

Our Commitment to You

As part of our commitment to working collaboratively, our rules of engagement adopt the premise of Interdependence. Therefore, in our working together, we'll assist in your learn of ‘Interdependent Rules of Engagement© and as well as ‘Strengths’ as a language of understanding and hope you'll endeavour to use the strategies taught to you in your day to day activities where possible.
