There are universal processes in individuals, teams, families, and organizations.
The relationship between a person and his/her environment is vital - one cannot be considered without the other.
Organizations sit within wider systems. Systems are multi-dimensional and not linear.
An integrated system is most likely to be healthy, functional and high-performing.
The network patterns of the outside world mimic a lot of the network patterns of the internal world.
