Humans have the gift to feel 𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 between the personal perception of a current business situation and the personal expectation of the same situation. Employees in an organisation can be regarded as “𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐨𝐫 𝐧𝐞𝐭𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤 (𝐇𝐒𝐍)” responding to business triggers. The HSN is an underutilized web with huge potential to drive in your organisation 𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧-𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠.
In Sociocracy 3.0 the term “Artful Participation” is defined as “𝘐𝘴 𝘮𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘣𝘶𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘐 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯?” Critical elements of artful participation and a fantastic basis to build a well-functioning human sensor network are:
-Being 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 at work
-being 𝐬𝐚𝐟𝐞 & encouraged to express tensions
-exploring the 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬 behind such tensions
-distinguishing between 𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐥 and non-essential tensions
