If you think of yourself as a change agent, or if solving conflict is a significant part of your work, you may find inspiration in the challenge that was presented to a group of experts in organizational development, how it was framed to them, and their tangible promises to meet it head on. This narrative offers highlights from the conference during which Power+Systems presented that challenge to its trainer community. Using immersive experiential exercises and a proven methodology, Power+Systems focuses on helping people see and better understand the world they operate in rather than fix people. Their goal is to enable people to build robust partnerships up, down and across the organization in ways that make them and their organizations successful.

    • 2 What does it take?
    • 3 How can each one of us, as individuals and as a community, influence the world in a way that creates positive, focused, engaged communities, organizations and people?
    • 4 BEWARE Everybody wanting to move the world ahead always feels a little lonely. Source: Peter Block, highly regarded author, consultant and authority on organization development, community building, and civic engagement.
    • 5 We’re stuck in the deficiency, needs-based narrative that dominates our consumer world. “What I have is not enough.” “Who I am is not enough.” “No matter how much you’re doing, I need more from you!”
    • 6 Part of our blindness is not being able to see our own grace and gifts.
    • 7  CON FLICT
    • 8 We need to bring sincerity to conversations and get people focused on how they are touching each other positively. We need to help the world to say: “Thank you, I like hearing that.”
    • 9 By helping people see the world in a new way Recognize situations that happen with surprisingly great regularity [PREDICTABLE CONDITIONS] Understand the predictable ways in which we respond in those situations and contexts [PREDICTABLE RESPONSES] And get in front of the very familiar outcomes that make us feel unappreciated and discouraged [DISEMPOWERING SCENARIOS] Source: Barry Oshry, visionary, academic, writer and speaker on a lifelong quest to unlock the mysteries of power and powerlessness in social system life.
    • 10 Shifting blindness to sight creates partnership and prevents destruction. Barry Oshry: www.powerandsystems.com
    • 11 “By helping people see systems better, we help unleash a tremendous amount of energy.” Source: Angela Sebaly, Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Personify Leadership and member of the Power+Systems community.
