The BRIDGE Overview

The concept of The BRIDGE from
a bird’s eye view.

SUGGESTION: watch this module from the perspective of twenty years in the future.
Some of these concepts are somewhat abstract and may be difficult to imagine, especially from our current perspective of society.

Along this pathway of The BRIDGE, three areas of society are explored –

Aikido Economics explores economic potential,

Coordinated Effort explores community potential, and

Wakie Wakie explores individual human potential. 

 

All of this is done by running various social and business initiatives. 

Without actually doing anything different we’d never know if The BRIDGE model works and we’d
just end up perpetuating the same toxic systems we see in the world today. 

 

Each one of these social or business projects, not only unlock financial,
community and/or individual potential, they do so by putting The BRIDGE
to work. This gives us practical feedback to help refine and develop the
model. It also holds us accountable – we didn’t just come up with a
good idea for others to try, we literally practice what we preach. 

 

For example: Skid Markz are locally owned businesses that practice Aikido Economics

while bringing operators a viable income.

The B-Team focuses on interpersonal skills development while exchanging theories
and findings from various organisations who also practice The BRIDGE.
And the Monkey Wrenches book
is not just a resource to help people along their personal development
journey it also utilizes the Metabolism method of distributing monies
within an organisation and it practices the Coordinated Effort style of
collaboration between separate businesses. 

 

So you could say: “Activate Us explores human potential, practicing The BRIDGE is just how we do it”. 

And so far, we’re happy to say, it works! 

 

Thanks for being interested.
Please take a look at our video modules below and browse through the rest of our website to learn more about
The BRIDGE, our team and all the other fun stuff we have on the go! .

VIDEO MODULES

 

 

 

Community Plan

 Outlining best practices on how to implement The BRIDGE within your community and what it would mean to the average household.

 

Metabolism

Based on how energy is distributed within the human body, Metabolism is how The BRIDGE distributes money within a community. This module also begins connecting dots between various aspects of The BRIDGE. 

 

 

 

 

Connecting the Dots

Starting to make connections between various aspect of The BRIDGE

 


Aikido Economics

Like pulling the ole’ switcharoo on capitalism, Aikido Economics increases standards of living on the way to societal abundance and individual sovereignty. Or as Michael Tellinger says: “using the tools of enslavement as the tools of liberation”.

 

 

 

The Cascade

How a network of businesses can unfold within a community and how that system can bring us to a more evolved type of society.

 


Walking the Talk

We’ve never been fans of “you go try our great idea”. We much prefer the “come with us” method. In this video you’ll see what societal transition may look like and steps we ourselves have taken a.cross The BRIDGE

 

 

 

Getting Started

If you’re picking up what we’re putting down, here is some guidance on how you might like to participate.

Training Workbook

So, you’ve surfed the website and watched the VIDEO modules. You’re pickin’ up what we’re puttin’ down and want to dive deeper into key aspects of The BRIDGE. Terrific! The BRIDGE Training program is for you.

We’ve created a thoughtful workbook that will help bring specific aspects, as well as various nuance, of The Bridge into focus. Certainly, this workbook can be completed individually but it was designed as a group initiative – practicing collaborative techniques and confronting personal challenges as a team.

Each person should have their own workbook to document interpretations of the subtler aspects of The BRIDGE so please contact us for bulk pricing.

GLOSSARY of TERMS

Aikido Economics™

Unlocking financial wealth previously siphoned off by the shareholder model. Rather than swimming up the proverbial stream Aikido Economics harnesses the momentum of our current Finance Based Economy to not only reclaim worker control but also increase standards of living along the way.

Worker Owned

Rerouting money and ownership back to the workforce. The Co-operative business structure is a perfect example

Accounting Switch

A simple reordering to the accounting process that accelerates the above rerouting. This is an adaptation of the commission payment structure

Pay with Product

Drastically reducing business expense by eliminating the majority of costs associated with packaging, shipping, inventory, sales, advertising, spoilage, and other inefficiencies. At this point the acceleration of the rerouting of money and ownership back to the workforce becomes exponential. This in an adaptation of the “pro deal”

Coordinated Effort

An interdependent network of resources and innovation with the purpose of supporting a common goal. Think of the world network of commerce as we have it today…now swap competition for collaboration.

Cascade

A three dimensional map showing linkages between businesses and how they support and rely upon one another. An evolutionary leap in community strategic planning

Metabolism

Modeled after energy distribution among the cells within a human body, Metabolism is the order in which money is distributed among individuals within a community 

Self Organizing

Adopting the “Teal” philosophy of self management, organizations are receptive, nimble, agile and can easily adapt to external changes without the use of hierarchy or central control. All in all creating an extremely resilient organization and never losing focus on the people

Wakie Wakie

Where Aikido Economics addresses the logistical systems of society and the Coordinated Effort addresses interpersonal connections, Wakie Wakie looks at the individual – the basis of the previous two sections. Wakie Wakie will no doubt, be challenging to some people’s perceived limits, but know that everything contained in this section is experience-based, unless otherwise stated as theory.

Monkey Wrenches

A place for disrupting conventional thinking. Here we highlight common occurrences that happen all around us and look at them from different perspectives and through different filters. The purpose is simply to help dismantle the layers of stagnation and acceptance we’ve all accumulated throughout our lifetimes.

Accounting Switch

A simple reordering to the accounting process that accelerates the above rerouting. This is an adaptation of the commission payment structure

Pay with Product

Drastically reducing business expense by eliminating the majority of costs associated with packaging, shipping, inventory, sales, advertising, spoilage, and other inefficiencies. At this point the acceleration of the rerouting of money and ownership back to the workforce becomes exponential. This in an adaptation of the “pro deal”
