The Omnes-Win Theory expands on the win-win concept where actions must be a win for both parties. Further expansion reveals a win-win-win. However, the goal was to provide a cyclical system of wins, and so the 4-Win concept was developed.
Win for Self – A win for self means that everything we think, say and do must produce a win for the self. At first this may sound selfish, but think of traveling on a plane. If an emergency event should occur and you do not place the mask on yourself first, you have no ability to help another. Thinking of the other first can have profound positive impact on your life.
Win for Other – Since we are not alone in this existence, we must be a respecter of others. When we move beyond our individuals needs to possess concern for others, we expand our existence..
Win for the Environment / Planet – A win must exist for the self, the other and for the environment. This quadrant addresses all things in the physical world not addressed by the first two quadrants. A win for the environment is our individual commitment to protect the world we need to survive.
Win over Time –This quadrant is the crucial piece that keeps the other quadrants in motion.
When a win over time is integrated into any practice, a simple and easy commitment for continuous learning and development emerges.
Filtering all events and experiences through the Omnes-Win rotating quad, practitioners find improved vetting and outcomes.
