  1. 1. Regenerative OrganizationsGrowing prosperity, celebrating community,enhancing the health of all species for all time John Hardman, Ph.D. Founder jhardman@regenerativeorganizations.com http://regenerativeorganizations.com © 2009 Regenerative Organizations
  2. 2. Two core premises:• Behaviors may drive change, but they can only be as effective as our awareness, understanding, and skill in working with the systems in which they operate.• We need to focus as much attention on the causal level of our consciousness as we do on the effects produced by our behaviors. This is where truly regenerative change is made possible.This requires a mindset willing to radically redesign itselfbefore it can truly restore the present or redesign thefuture. © 2009 Regenerative Organizations

  6. 6. Development of increasingly higher levels of awareness andunderstanding of systems that translate into behaviors that:• Go beyond preserving existing natural and social resources;• Restore and create new resources that have become depleted through overuse or misuse; and• Ensure a healthy bottom line.Regeneration results from radical innovation, which wedefine as the capacity to do and make things in entirely newways unconditioned by prior assumptions. This calls for anintegral, systematic and systemic approach to everything anorganization does. © 2009 Regenerative Organizations

Through Regenerative Organizations, weprovide private enterprises and communityagencies with the tools they need to redesign theiroperating model in response to:• A genuine desire for innovation to reposition themselves in a changing economic, social, and natural environment;• Regulatory, social, and market pressures and demands. © 2009 Regenerative Organizations
