Today’s change agents are encountering an increasing number of challenges to effect change. One prominent challenge is the growing sense of separation amongst individuals, leaders, and organizations, even though there are frequent calls for more connection. What can we do differently to foster more connection and help co-create the changes that humanity needs?
In this interactive workshop, we will explore how you can expand your ability to co-create change by consciously operating with one foot in our 3D reality and the other in the quantum field. Debbie and Harper have built a model that outlines how to more effectively collaborate at increasing levels of complexity and will relate that model with basic concepts from the growing field of quantum mechanics.
- How might we invent new ways of collaborating in organizations?
- What could it look like if organizations intentionally identified, developed, and sustained collaborative processes?
- How might change agents more consciously operate in both the 3D and quantum worlds?
This session weaves together themes from various practices into a few simple concepts that helps address what they consider to be a core competency of tomorrow’s OD practitioners: the ability to facilitate the evolution of organizations that are hardwired to co-create instead of control.
