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.
I hope you can join me for “From Intractable to Possible — Supporting Non-Linear Change” on November 27 as part of Langara’s Community Lecture Series.

How can you — and your project, organization, or movement — be as effective as possible? How do we find ways forward in these challenging times?
This site introduces many tools and approaches for making light work whether you are a leader, front line worker, manager, activist, entrepreneur, parent, student or …
For working in groups, these are my top ten:
And for individual work, the tools I work with most often are:
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 a helping each other “make light work.”
