Creating an Integral Culture

Monday, July 11th, 2011

In my view there is a coming together that we have yet to achieve, which represents our ability to support the world through a difficult transition. For me that will be a sign of our maturity, and of our ability to take these wonderful maps and brilliant theories and apply them.

Spiritual Intelligence

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Are you spiritually intelligent? I sit here having planned for this blog to be about multiple intelligences.    I have a swollen black eye with two small cuts, having failed to control the release of a bungee chord that was tying up a bundle of timber in my car.  Blame it on cold fingers as I [...]

Polarised thinking

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Whatever the arena, the speed of change and the requirement to balance a wide range of societal or business forces demands flexibility and responsiveness. Thus the ability to see polarities not as an “either-or” to be decided upon, but as a “both-and” to be managed will be critical to our future success.

Preparing for Global Bankruptcy

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Despite the apparent ability of the world economy to survive, bankruptcy is already here. By way of reminder, global indebtedness exceeds ten years of global production. If you need another statistic, the UK national debt is now £77,000 for every inhabitant of this country. We have mortgaged our own future and that of our children.

Friday, March 18th, 2011

There will be a recurring theme through this series of blogs on social dynamics.  That theme is complexity.   Integral and Spiral Dynamics approaches both portray our time as one of major transition, driven in large measure by an evolutionary crisis.  Our ways of thinking and being are challenged to attain a new level in order [...]

Who will deliver the Big Society?

Friday, March 18th, 2011

The Big Society is on its way. Big government will be minimised and in its place something new must manifest. It is a huge cultural change. Our view is that it emerges as a part of the criticality in life conditions which propel the predicted requirement to “leap” into second tier. Whether we can meet that requirement will depend on our collective ability to understand how to deliver complex systems, meshworks and flex-flow capability.

The end of the Linear

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Einstein is quoted regularly for his view that you cannot solve a problem using the same thinking that created it. While this has always been true in regard to the need to bring more information and changed assumptions into our analyses, what we are now encountering goes beyond that and requires an octave-shift in our thinking style.
