Now more than ever we need collective intelligence, wisdom, and capacity — the way many hands make light work of cleaning up after dinner. I invite you to join me in finding ways to transform our meetings, companies and communities.

  • Price-less Words

    Here’s a sample chapter from my book on tools to revolutionize how we work together, and also the Two Block Diet UnManual — ways to grow more food and more community.

You may be wondering: How can I — and my project, organization, or movement — be as effective as possible? How do we navigate in these challenging times?

This site introduces many tools and approaches for finding your way through whether you are a  leader, front line worker, manager, activist, entrepreneur, parent, student or … The tools mentioned below help to unleash collective genius, based in our collective intelligence, wisdom and capacity. I hope they help you feel that “We can do this!”

For working in groups, these are my top ten:

  • Appreciative Inquiry — Sample Chapter
  • Chaordic Design
  • Generative Dialogue
  • Adaptive Cycle
  • Enterprise Facilitation
  • Theory U
  • Process Oriented Psychology
  • Integral Theory
  • Systemic Constellations
  • Conscious Co-Creation

And for individual work, the tools I work with most often are:

  • Automatic Writing
  • Flirts
  • Setting the Energy
  • Coin Toss
  • Muscle Testing
  • Guiding Image
  • Inner Guides
  • Framing
  • Burning Your Wook
  • Multiple Options

There are, of course, many other tools. These are just the ones I personally have found most valuable and versatile. Some are better for decision making, and others for visioning or dealing with difficult people. Others are dynamite for priority setting and making best use of your time, and still others for accessing collective wisdom in groups.

Ultimately all the tools tap into the same one thing — the clarity and wisdom available to us when we include the interior dimension of our outer activities. I call this “inner work” — ways of working based in intuition, perception, intention and consciousness.

Inner work doesn’t replace logic, experience and practical know-how. Rather it amplifies and quickens them, a kind of “X” factor that revolutionizes how we work, individually and in groups.

I hope you’ll join me in revolutionizing how we work in groups, and growing our confidence that We Can Do This!
