the organization

We live in the age of networking. Everyone is on the social media bandwagon, frenetically "friending" or "liking" each other. One would imagine that the world has woken up to the importance of relationships, and that the dawn of deep and meaningful human engagement has arrived. One would imagine wrong.

Relationships that are shallow and too quickly formed lead to increased misunderstandings, misperceptions, and disputes. Today, given how quickly we can make new connections, we don't do the hard work of repairing broken ones. Like the way we junk our cars if they require maintenance, or discard our clothes when they are torn, we walk away from our relationships when they are strained. This tendency has grave consequences for our communities and larger society.

Meta‑Culture is South Asia's first organization dedicated to making relationships more effective.

We are experienced facilitators, with the professional skills and experience to understand and address the complexities of difficult relationships. That's what we do - improve relationships. It's our business to break impasses, address conflict, and facilitate decision-making.

We know it's difficult to ask an outsider for help. Individuals and organizations hesitate to share personal information, and cringe at the thought of others learning about their troubles. As professionals, we respect such sensitivities. Like medical doctors and lawyers, we are bound by strict standards of client confidentiality.

Can all relationships be improved?
We think so.
Can all conflict be resolved?
Realistically no, not all.
Can all conflict be addressed?
Yes! Not addressing conflict hurts more.
Meta‑Culture makes constructive conversations happen.

    What is Meta-Culture's organizational structure? How is it funded?
    Meta‑Culture is made up of two entities: a private consulting organization and a non-profit trust registered in August 2006, under section 80G of the 1961 Income Tax Act.
    Meta‑Culture Consulting operates on a fee-for-service model. We generate most of our income through our consulting and training work. It was in August 2012 that the non-profit Trust first received any significant project funding from a private donor.

META SPEAK

The big problems in the world cannot be solved without skill and sensitivity. We should be experts, and we'd better be very good at what we do. If we're not, why should clients trust us?
