Results after four years of research

Managers and guardians have more time to themselves, are more relaxed and more effective at realizing their goals. There’s improved organization, communication, productivity and finances in organizations. This is what a four-year research project showed about the effects of ECOintention. The research was carried out in 2014, 2008, 2007 and 2005 in projects run by the third and fourth year trainees in the vocational program to become an ECOintention Practitioner.

 

Healthy finances

In order to research the impact of ECOintention the Guardians were given a questionnaire with 11 statements about their well-being and the condition of their organization or project, at the start of the project, and after 4, 8 and 12 months. For example: “I have time for myself”, “I achieve my goals”, “My organization’s finances are healthy”. The Guardians assigned each statement a score of 1 to 7 depending on to what extent they agreed with the statement. In this way their opinions at the start and at the end of the project could be compared.

 

Significant results

The 2014 research showed that for all statements the score increased compared to the beginning of the ECOintention project. For 67% of the statements the increase was statistically significant. In 2005, 2007 and 2008 there were similar results.

 

The 4-year research shows that managers and Guardians experience improvements in a large number of areas for themselves and their organizations / ecosystems at the end of an ECOintention process. They have more time to themselves, are more relaxed, have greater self-confidence, feel healthier and are better at achieving their goals. In their organization or project, they experience improved organization and communication. In general things get better rather than worse. Productivity increases and finances improve..

Table with ECOintention results in 2014: there were 31 Guardians who completed the questionnaire at all four moments in the process. Green means a higher and red means a lower score than the initial measurement. Figures in bold represent a statistically significant change. The scale was 1 (poor) to 7 (very good).

 

 

Broad diversity of projects

There were 57 Guardians involved in the 2014 research (e.g. managers, leaders of organizations, wardens of land). They represented 49 very different projects, For example an energy company, a research Institute, a bank, a political party, a magazine, a publisher, a camping site, a beekeeper, educational institutions, agricultural organizations, natural areas, estates and public parks.

 

The third and fourth year trainees practised ECOintention on the project for a year. They made energetic interventions on average three times a week, on their own or together with another trainee. In order to bring the energy and flow back into their projects they used the resonance of different energetic items. Every 6 to 8 weeks they visited their projects to check up on the energy on location and to have a coaching conversation with the Guardian about the project’s development. Center for ECOintention supervised all the projects. The research is being continued in 2015.
