The DAVOS call for revolutionary action signals collective awareness that it is time to plug personal/professional decision making into how we collectively reinvent our relationship with the planet. Scientific principles serve to inform what systemic changes must take place, and how each can contribute including government, community, business and personally. A radical shift in worldview is required so we explore perspective that can, frame by frame, create a unifying view to guide our vision for what humanity can do when faced with adversity. Cocreating becomes a means for survival following nature's principles as a guide and teacher. This slide set was inspired by the participation of change innovation expert, Dawna Jones on the Systems Thinking group on LinkedIn.com

  • What is going on and how can alter the current trajectory? Environmental:Climate change: vast quantities of carbonFacing consequences of past actions. Disposal of radioactive waste in groundwaterGlobal sea level rising 1.5 X faster than predicted by the IPCC in 2001. Carbon emissions/global warming accelerating past predictions.Underwater stores of methane gas now being released due to accelerated warming.Biodiversity shrinking at an alarming rate. Loss of biodiversity at an alarming rate.
  • Offer insights into the beliefs and assumptions underpinning issues/opportunities;Outline the systemic principles that facilitate accelerated change.
  • Social: Gap between rich and poor; north and south driven by the structure of the global monetary system. Environmental: loss of biodiversity; Degradation of Ecological support systemsPolitical: Perceiving the global commons as territory.Business: Perceiving itself as separate from entire system.Institutional: Operating on outmoded
  • Quote from WorldShift 2012 by Ervin Lazslo
  • Mayan calendar was a systems plan for the evolution of consciousness. Same amount of change occurs in each cycle: 20 times faster. (Calleman, Lazanski)Integration of all systems> harmonious system.Arc: Analysis is replaced by seeing the system.Linear thinking is replace by creative.
  • From March 3, 2011 to October 28, 2011 we are in the 9th stage where the frequency shift is causing a break down of old structures: political, economic, etc. It is a time of chaos when humanity can choose to do its best by converting fear into care and empathy for others and for the planet we inhabit.
  • From war on nature (isolation) to being a part of living system.From competition to cooperation/collaboration.From profit as an end to profit as the means. From predictability to randomness and chaos. From business being accountable to its shareholders to being accountable to rising expectations of shareholders & community/society. From ignoring nature’s inputs & destroying ecological capital to finding solutions; returning to nature’s principles of closed loop feedback.War on nature: humanity above the system and controlling it.(poverty/income disparity) From irresponsible competition (win at all costs) to cooperative implementation of visionary ideas.
  • Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, AmbiguityDynamic: From duality to unified. Earth as a complex, mature eco-system. From control and domination to self-organizing (technology-social media)(either-or to both/AND)Forces rethink, trust in intuition over analysis. Demands new level of consciousness, awareness, agility, ability to see whole system and place in it. Function using ecosystem principles that Earth has been working with for over 3.8 Billion years.
  • Interruptions to Personal lifeAttempting to achieve balance: work with meaning; leisureLearning from those who see the world differently.
  • The French mathematician, Benoit Mandelbrot was the first to recognize that the geometry of many of Nature’s objects revealed a similar pattern regardless of the scale it was examined on. The more you magnify the image, the more the structure appears the same. Mandelbrot introduced the term “self-similar” to describe such objects. ….A structural characteristic of fractals is relatively simple to understand: fractals exhibit a reiterated pattern of “structures” nested within one another. Each smaller structure is a miniature, but not necessarily an exact version of the larger form. Fractal mathematics emphasizes the relation between the patterns seen in the whole and the patterns seen in parts of that whole. For example, the pattern of twigs on a branch resembles the pattern of limbs branching off of the trunk. –Dr. Bruce Lipton from an audio interview with Dawna Jones
  • Person, organizationCellular structure-microchip. Source; Audio interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton, June, 2006.Past leadership has been in isolation of the context in which business operates and hasn’t been tied to business outcomes. This must change so that the individuals can directly contribute to their networks of performance. Evidence: Social biology HP.
  • Personal - Conscious mind directs life’s results; Subconscious produces. Conscious-subconscious-higher purposeOrganizational change.
  • Growth within limits. Recycling of resources.Greater resiliency
  • Desire to be connected; know profession/quality of matters. (Jay Bradgon)Can achieve full potential.Life depends on living assets: intelligent, adaptive, generative, self organized, active, connected.
  • Non-linearRapid/RadicalInteraction: Connectivity Always shifts to a higher orderUses crisis or disruption to transform
  • Non-linearRapid/RadicalInteraction: Connectivity Always shifts to a higher orderUses crisis or disruption to transformThe start of each wave of consciousness (Mayan) began with an massive earthquake. (Calleman)12 April 2011 outlined three ideals for the recovery of the region.
  • Preparing for more.All opportunities to innovate post disruption
  • Connection between solar flares and human activities. From inspired action to aggression. Supports innovation and creativity.
  • When we are faced with uncertainty or the unexpected rather than become angry we have the option of becoming creative. Rather than surviving by consuming out of need or greed, we can survive by creating new solutions using nature as our mentor.
  • Increasing diagnosis of depressionAggression and anger an expression of fear, doubt, powerlessness, loss of control
  • Ability to center in heart’s intelligence.Expand mastery of sensing-feeling intelligences.Activate creativity; replace reliance on analytical rational (sees parts)Open to intuitive guidance
  • Sense of belonging to a successful team. Environment of safety and encouragement.

  • Thinking in evolutionary terms I see this as a major adaptation in capitalism; a radical departure from the bankrupt and now dying industrial model of capitalism where the total cost of this system now arguably exceeds its benefit.”
  • 4% of publicly traded firms are organized around core value of care/compassion & stewardship.Means aligned with end.
  • Networked Organization: Front-line empowerment: decision-making, self-organizing to changing conditions. SW’s culture works like a cluster of double helix: networks within networks swirling around an adaptive core structure. Managing by means: Building capacity that will strengthen the organization. Capacity to make and remake itself. Listens and implements employee feedback.Frugality: To survive and thrive, all life and living systems must be frugal in their use of energy and resources. Save fuel by operating out of less trafficked airports= quick turn around. Often have more cash than debt on balance sheets. Openness: All life needs to be continuously open to new information in order to survive and thrive. Information flows freely between employees and leadership everywhere, strengthening the company’s ability to learn and adapt on the fly. Sense of Purpose: Southwest’s symbiotic sense of purpose and its visionary goals transcend profit. Source: Jay Bragdon, Interview: www.management-issues.com.Their corporate culture is non-bureaucratic. People spontaneously support each other saving time and resources. Recycling is a way of lifeFrugality extends to their financial management - this has a lot to do with their staying power. “We manage in good times so our employees and shareholders will do well in bad times.” Openness:Southwest’s culture committee serves this purpose brilliantly by being open to feedback from all sources in all locations at virtually at all times. It is a key part of their learning capacity. Like all living beings the company understands that it is part of a larger web of relationships and the strength of that web is key to its ability to survive and thrive over time.
  • Communities of organisms have evolved this way for over billions of years, using and recycling the same molecules of minerals, water and air.“ Supply chain transparency
  • “Over a period of ten years or more , companies such as 3M, Chevron and DuPont have each reportedly saved billions of dollars from environmental cost-cutting initiatives.”
  • The basic pattern of life is a network pattern meaning that all the relationships are non-linear involving multiple feedback loops, the means for self-regulation. Use of authority is not necessary. Source: Web of Life by Fritjof Capra
  • Anne Murray Allen, Dennis Sandow: Hewlett PackardSocial networks of high performance. “We studied accomplishment in a variety of places and always found the same pattern. One of the fascinating things we learned was that when we mapped the networks to the organizational chart we saw that the only manager that anyone had in common with was the CEO. HP is a big company. That was a surprising bit of information. It underscored that while we have these vertical organizational charts, they do not display how work gets done in the organization. What they display is some sort of fiduciary responsibility, how reporting results occur and how resources are accounted for but it does not describe how work gets accomplished which is even more networked and horizontal. It cross cuts the entire organization chart. This was a real eye opener and had a lot of ramifications for discussing and learning more about performance.” Interview with Anne Murray Allen, January, 2010 Evolutionary Provocateur
  • “Something circulates through the system making predictable, linear extrapolations unreliable.” Lietaer.
  • Application to the Monetary SystemEfficacy: Capacity for the system to process volumeResilience: Capacity to adapt to different environments or a situation that is totally not normal.
  • Belief: Humans motivated by self-interest; quest for financial gain;Actions yheliding greatest financial retrun to individual or firm=benefit to society.Competitive behaviour is more rational and benefitical to firm/individual .
