What is Holonomy?

The study of becoming whole

Holonomy, bringing the unique and diverse talents of individuals to work powerfully as a team.  The term originates from Cognitive Coaching™, and means to support a person’s development to wholeness by strengthening the sum of a person’s consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility, interdependence, and efficacy.

“Mariah helped our team work through some rather common yet very challenging interpersonal dynamics in the workplace. Mariah is a great listener. What I appreciated the most about her work was that she really customized a journey to address our particular set of concerns. I serve as my organization’s Chief Officer of Equity and Inclusion. Mariah worked with me to assure that her efforts were complimentary of mine and kept me engaged in her planning process to assure alignment.

Mariah is an excellent facilitator as well. Our team simply loved working with Mariah as she is as pleasant as she is skilled. The work that we hired Mariah to do was done at the highest level of our organization. The most important thing I can say is that Mariah left us in a MUCH better place than she found us and increased our capacity to continue the work she started.”

“We saw the effects of an issue at our school, but didn’t understand what was really at the root. Mariah’s approach helped us to engage stakeholders–students and staff–in diagnosing a precise problem to solve for. This helped to ensure that our time and energy were well spent addressing the root of the problem.

Engaging with the experiences and voices of our students and staff helped to ensure that we were collectively responding to the situation, as opposed to implementing a top down approach that might have been misaligned to the needs of our community.”

“The connections were incredible. Our connecting with each other was the result of intentional design, so thank you! The thoughtfully designed interaction, the scaffolded “dating” questions, the brief but meaningful interactions, the pair shares – all of it was brilliant!”

“The convening was – once again – amazing. Reflecting on the holding and ceding power was very meaningful. The opportunities to dialogue with colleagues during the convening are very engaging and energizing, especially with such meaningful material.”
