Anne Caspari's curator insight, December 30, 2016 12:16 PM
Worth while reading! Good knitwork, weaving in sensitivity to place, language and archetypes, calling attention to things so conveniently unnoticed, unillumined. Dealing with the lost art of being present to what is actually happening in our lifes, our health and the wider ecologies. Inviting leaders to work with the system as it is, understanding the underlying dynamics and to drop idealist positions of future desired states.(YES!)

100 Ways to Save the World | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it
This is a grim spring for those concerned about our warming planet. Last year was the hottest in recorded history, eclipsing 2015, which in turn beat out 2014. In December, climate scientists collectively freaked out after recording temperatures in the Arctic 36 degrees Fahrenheit above normal. This latest sign of global heat rash came just weeks after the election of a U.S. president who has called climate change a hoax, who vows to put bankrupt coal giants back in business, and who recruited his secretary of state from ExxonMobil.

Dave Snowden on complexity theory and astrology - Boss Level Podcast | Generative Systems Design

Dave Snowden on complexity theory and astrology - Boss Level Podcast | Generative Systems Design | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it
Today’s guest is Dave Snowden. Dave is the man behind Cynefin, a decision support framework that’s based on complexity theory and cognitive science. | Generative Systems Design
Anne Caspari's insight:
I recently wrote about this big feeling of relief and elation when coming across a meta-theory that delivers such a powerful perspective that it 'reorganizes' your current world-view of things into a much simpler and more elegant way? So it releases a lot of built up energy or effort that world-view was holding? For me, about 12 years ago, that was Ken Wilber's AQAL framework. It freed me up from reductionisms in my thinking and unreferenced data suddenly had a place to go. In the last 5 or 6 years I have noted being very impatient or sometimes even rebuked around this framework, also about Scharmer's U-Theory and other change frameworks. Tonight, while listening a talk by Dave Snowden I realized what this impatience and resistance was: When you collect data and then organize it through a framework, this helps to see patterns like constraints, blind spots, resistances to change, attractors and detractors, and your knowledge and your next steps are being organized. NB: The data comes before the framework. When a framework becomes the lens you are seeing things through it becomes a categorization framework which "produces a very different psychology" (Snowden) It leads to all kinds of hidden biases; confirmation, developmental and otherwise. What's more, it becomes a tool of subtle and gross reductionism once more - all in the name of a cutting edge super tool (teal??). That is a fake. This is what has been triggering me as I saw the frameworks being applied as prescriptive categorization frameworks over and over again in the last years. I now have a name for it.

RELEASING COMPLEXITY November 4 - 6, 2016; Germany  3- DAYS with BONNITTA ROY  - An invitation to step into a new way of understanding organizational life and to think and do from a whole new mind IN THIS COURSE, WE PRACTICE NEW WAYS OF THINKING BEYOND SYSTEMS THINKING INTO THE DOMAIN OF COMPLEX RESPONSIVE PROCESSES, AND CRITICAL VIEWS…
Anne Caspari's insight:
Do you remember the feeling of relief and 'enlightenment' when you last came across an explanation, a meta theory or a different perspective that was so powerful that it "reorganized" your current world-view of things into a much simpler and more elegant way? So it RELEASES a lot of built up energy or effort that world-view was holding? It is exquisite... Bonnitta Roy is offering such a new view on organizational life and its challenges. I am thrilled about her second workshop for early adopters in the field of organizational development & complexity thinking. "Releasing Complexity" will be dealing with complex adaptive systems; the application of solid design principles, flexible governance structures and real practices that foster self-organization, emergent behavior and action logics, novelty and innovation. She leads us to a realist stance and has a look what is actually happening with people in organizations and what gets in the way of authentic participation. And she also avoids the traps of developmental biases. Shout if you are interested!
