Underlying Assumptions

  • The future is born in webs of human conversation

  • Compelling questions encourage collective learning

  • Human systems – organizations, families, communities – are living systems

  • Networks are the underlying pattern of living systems

  • Intelligence emerges as the system connects to itself in diverse and creative ways

  • We collectively have all the wisdom and resources needed

Our Principles of Engagement

We listen for what matters in the community, where engagements can maximize returns on all kinds of capital – financial, physical, social, and natural.

 

We ask what is realistic, attainable and measurable, in businesses, governments and communities.

 

We act as catalysts among government, faith, business, education, not-for-profits and grass roots leaders to synergize and leverage collective assets. We connect ‘connectors’ – nodes of networks – with networks of networks.

 

We focus on values, behaviors and actions to affect large system change and what Arnold J. Toynbee saw is the ultimate function of civilization – a deeper spiritual understanding.

 

We cultivate innovation, creativity and inspiration by circulating news of what’s working locally to globally, recognizing that dramatic shifts occur within local and regional networks.

 

We support conversational leadership, nurturing an emerging collective intelligence, leading to wiser actions.

 

We learn from perennial wisdom and scientific research to re-discover innate principles of life that supports prosperous, flourishing communities of agape love.

 

We address the question, “How do we live together and remember who we truly are?”

 

We follow what shows life.

 

We recognize that we live in a world of transactions, while adding transformation and transcendence.

 

We do not fix problems, things or people.
