Hello. I work with Margaret Wheatley, Myron Kellner-Rogers, and Fritjof
Capra. I'd like to announce a couple of upcoming conferences.

Self-Organizing Systems
A Simpler Way

Over three days, our seminar explores the implications of the
self-organizing evolutionary paradigm as described in complexity science
and as observed in our organizations. We seek to create a new
understanding of living systems theory, and to examine the conditions and
leadership required to create an organization that can respond
continuously to change. Participants will be asked to do substantive
reading prior to the seminar. Each day will integrate presentations of
theory, principles and concepts with collaborative inquiry, in small and
large groups. We want to deepen our understanding of the meaning of these
concepts in our work, lives and world. Past participants have shifted the
nature and focus of their leadership and the design of major change
initiatives. Please join us for an inquiry that will change the way you
