Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI”)

Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI”) is a model with 5 guiding roots and 20 touchpoints designed to break one’s preconceived notion of the “other” or those who are different from us. IZI is based on peer-reviewed research and the experience engineering techniques used by corporations across the globe to convince people to part with their money. Instead of using these techniques to develop a more efficient way to imbed consumerism, we have taken the underlying concepts and applied them to create the environmental conditions necessary to promote openness, authenticity and connection as we engage communities in important conversations and initiatives around education, social justice and integrative and community health and wellness.

Detailed Description

Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI”) is a model with 5 guiding roots and 20 touchpoints designed to break one’s preconceived notion of the “other” or those who are different from us.

IZI is based on peer-reviewed research and the experience engineering techniques used by corporations across the globe to convince people to part with their money.

Instead of using these techniques to develop a more efficient way to imbed consumerism, we have taken the underlying concepts and applied them to create the environmental conditions necessary to promote openness, authenticity and connection as we engage communities in important conversations and initiatives around education, social justice and integrative and community health and wellness.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
