Unity Effect Connect UG
We believe that leading change starts within us. It becomes powerful when we work together in teams. And it becomes systemic when we work in and leverage the power of networks and communities. Unity Effect builds capacities and guides the process of leading change at every step of your journey from purpose to meaningful impact.
We envision a world in which every person, team and network is empowered to have an impact beyond themselves and take conscious, compassionate and collaborative action to create a just and thriving world together. Making a difference We are driven to make a difference for others and to support others on their path to make a difference. 1 Collaboration We believe we are more impactful when we work together and we value collaboration based on trust and appreciation. 2 Growth We create conditions for healthy growth and we practice self-awareness, reflection and proactive curiosity and learning. 3 Courage We practice choosing what is right over what is easy, showing up with vulnerability and being bold to dream and act. 4 Simplicity We focus on what really matters and we recognise the power of simple things to create an impact.
