By Alia Aurami for Enlivening Edge Magazine This Editorial is based on the topic for the June Third-Thursday EE Community Conversation. For those inventing next-stage organizations, solstice is a natural time to pause, reflect, and pay attention to what we want to create. Whether you’ve just experienced summer solstice or winter solstice, this is a special “half-way” time of year conducive to reflecting on where you/we have been and where we’re going. Various Northern Hemisphere countries close down for the summer. We’re all slowing down, whether due to vacation time or due to the colder temperatures that naturally prompt a …

By Alia Aurami for Enlivening Edge Magazine This Editorial is going to be short and to the point. It’s going to express Enlivening Edge’s Evolutionary Purpose in a new context. Our evolutionary purpose is stated as Catalyzing relationships among innovators who are accelerating the evolution of organizations and social systems for human and environmental thriving. The past few years have been very different from previous years, for most people. To one degree or another, it seems as if many are discouraged, confused, disoriented, weary, apathetic, apprehensive, or disengaged. They have no understanding, no control. They can’t find the energy to …

People Need Peopleto-gather. (photo n.bateson)Nora Bateson 2022“We have been lost to each other for so long. My name means nothing to you. My memory is dust.This is not your fault, or mine.” — Anita Diamant, The Red Tent.Of all the necessities to human life: water, air, food, shelter — probably the most important is being in relationship with each other. We are furless, clawless and fang-less. We move more slowly than other creatures on our two feet instead of four, and the need for emotional and intellectual stimulation is physiological. Without each other our ancestors would have been cold, defenseless and unwell. In short, People Need People. …

By Shelley J. Doyle for Enlivening Edge Magazine The theme for February’s EE Community Conversation was Love, in recognition of Valentine’s Day. Host Doug Breitbart offered the group an eye-opening reminder of what intimacy really means: into-me-see. Before delving into our breakout rooms, we were encouraged to have honest and deep conversations, free from judgment, and with 100% presence. In the breakout space, we covered the topic of Love in relation to work environments. I shared a personal account of feeling love in the workplace around 15 years ago; at that time, I worked in London at a boutique PR …

By Samantha Slade for Enlivening Edge Magazine The under-estimated, under-utilized and inclusive potential of invitation Invitations and participatory leadership Invitations are part of being human. In fact, they are so rooted in our daily life that it is easy to forget the power and potential they hold. We invite one another to collaborate on an idea or initiative; to partake in events or special moments; to share information or a document. Despite appearances, invitations hold an underestimated potential in contributing to transitions into shared leadership or co-management. We will delve into four concrete ways you can better leverage invitations to …

By Julia Markish for Enlivening Edge Magazine The Teal Team idea sprouted over a couple of overpriced lattes at the Four Barrel Coffee Shop on Valencia Street in San Francisco. But its seed was sown several months prior, when—after I’d stalked him on LinkedIn based on a Fortune article he’d written—writer and Great Place to Work content director Ed Frauenheim invited me to meet for a coffee at his offices downtown. During that meeting, we bonded over our exasperation with the way most organizations are run (where was the humanity? the humility? the love?), and our desire to see people …

By Charles Ehin for Enlivening Edge Magazine As suggested by Peter Gray1 and other anthropologists our hunter-gatherer ancestors progressively practiced a system of “reverse dominance” that prevented anyone from assuming power over others. This was opposite to the alpha male and female patterns of some of our primate cousins. Regrettably, the introduction of agriculture about 12,000 years ago and with it the accumulation of wealth by some and not others, gradually brought into play what I call “sanctioned dominance.” I propose, we are now finally in a “reverse dominance reclamation phase.” Human nature didn’t actually change when we began to …
