Finding your essential purpose with Maria Bäck and Jeff Vander Clute

Have you ever had a strong intuition about your business but were unsure how to incorporate that into your business planning? International consultants Maria Båck and Jeff Van Der Clute help their clients sense into the invisible dimensions of their practices – to be able to make better more conscious business decisions.

Being able to connect to your essential purpose – at the deepest level of your self, your partnership or your organization, gives you a transformative tool to use in shaping the future.

International consultants Maria Båck and Jeff Van Der Clute are back for another podcast interview!  Jeff and Maria co-founded Sourcing the Way to help their clients sense into the invisible dimensions of their practices – to be able to make better more conscious business decisions.  They use a unique blend of intuition, values clarification, strategy and data recording to guide their clients into purposeful dialogues about what actions are most relevant and resonant with the business.  From that place, easier, more aware and more effective decisions can be made.

Recently, they’ve been working with their clients to access the power that comes from uncovering one’s deepest essential purpose. The work is now being done with individuals, partnerships, and organizations.

Some gems from the interview:

“When we really get to the deepest level of the why, the essence, for an organization, a purpose, a relationship, then suddenly all the ingredients of one’s life, or an organization’s – that have been present –  that have been floating around – then suddenly it’s like the magnet’s been turned on – and all of these pieces starting flying together there’s  a sense of unification, clarity  and flow that emerges from being able to articulate the essential purpose.”

“As we allow the space for what truly brings us joy, we go deeper – into a safe space where we can explore.”


 Listen to these reflections on the show:

What is essential purpose work? Discovering the deep “why” behind an organization, partnership or person..

How one simple question, “What brings you joy?” unlocks something in us; using this to map the field of one’s joy.

Tapping into the essence of an organization, and sensing what brings it joy – as a platform for dialogue.

Using resonance mapping to systematically feel the quality of what comes up when a person, partnership, or an organization starts to talk about its joy.

How spreadsheets and data can be viewed intuitively so that new patterns become visible and how resonance mapping allows one to feel and explore the energy underneath what is being spoken.
