The capacity of a collective to make an intelligence superior to the sum of the parts emerge
Collective intelligence stems from an important work in social sciences and humanities to respond to the requirements of organizations limited in their functioning by the classical hierarchy. The Editions - Formations - Facilitations de l’Ode are using work from two international reseachers, Robert Dilts and Otto Scharmer. Solution© is intended to promote collective intelligence by the collective Vision 2021. The game was invented by Odette Gameiro >> see his curriculum, with the co-authorship of Johanna Arcangeli, Deborah Bacon Dilts (translator) and Christophe Delenne (illustrator).
The game Solution©, proposed by the Editions de l’Ode, is based on the teaching of Robert Dilts. This trainer, consultant and author of many books, has been working on NLP, neurolinguistic programming, since its creation in 1975. In 1980, he sets up what has become « Dilts’ logical levels », used internationally in most of the comportemental and cognitive therapies recognized for their rapid and concrete results. For several years, Robert Dilts has been concentrating his research, teaching, training, and conferences in the whole world. In France, he is at the origin of Vision 2021* along with Gilles Roy. In his last book, Success Factor Modeling, Volume 2, The Power of Generative Collaboration, Robert Dilts expresses all is interest for the game Solution. Solution belongs to a Collective Intelligence promoting movement.

Solution© also uses the work of an american (of german origin) Otto Scharmer, lecturer at the Massachussets Institute of Technology. Otto Scharmer is chairman and founder of a leadership program gathering institutions from business and organizations. www.presencing.com. Otto Scharmer describes four level in the progression of dialogue, that are synthesized in Theory U. The first level is characterized by non-listening because the personne doesn’t hear nor refers to anything but his/her own usual mindsets. The second level of listening is based only on facts. It allows to highlight diverging points of view and stimulates the intellect. This step allows to reach a third level of listening, empathic, taking into account the point of view of the other. The heart is used to develop attention to the other in its globality. This uses emotional intelligence. The fourth level of listening, even superior, allors to listen to the system in its globality. It permits the emergence of collective intuition, fearless, censureless, without pre-conceived ideas, which is the condition for collective intelligence.
In France, the organization Génération Présence explores the work of Otto Scharmer : www.generation-presence.com
Odette Gameiro, deeply involved in the Vision 2021* process, has invented Solution. She has gathered a team. The co-authors Odette Gameiro and Johnna Arcangeli, Deborah Bacon Dilts (translator) and Christophe Delenne (illustrator) have applied the methods of collective intelligence to create Solution. Odette Gameiro, practitionner in sophrology and facilitator in collective intelligence, has tried to synthesize the progress of Robert Dilts and Otto Scharmer while drawing on her rich experience in her private practice. Through this game, she has found a means to spread good practice of collective intelligence in the simplest manner, the fun and play manner.
Solution© is part of a game’s suit created by Odette Gameiro, named ROA for Reflexe Optimistic Attitude. All these games have the mission to translate through game the progress of cognitive sciences.
