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 Doug Breitbart and Fabian Szulanski and originally published on medium.com FIRST READ Part 1 of this article here. The question is, what fundamental changes in mindset on the part of those currently in leadership positions would be required to take power and control out of the co-creative collaborative equation within large organizations? How might we provide the safety, and peace of mind for leadership to let go of their need for control as the essential active ingredient required, in order to “manage?” The question for the employed is, what operational changes must be made to enable the regaining of …

Unless this is the first time you have stumbled across this blog by accident, you might have come across the idea of “the Wiki”. This usually does not refer to The Big Wiki but to the Cynefin one, which is a labour of love by many in the community and an attempt to ensure openness, authenticity, and rigour for the Cynefin framework and the methods that are associated with it. Today, my mental journey started on this wiki, specifically the “Glossary” section, where translations for critical terms are crowdsourced in several languages (ten and counting at the time of writing). The Greek language …

So I’m back at the desk in my study, driven home from two weeks walking and cycling in the Lake District by Atlantic storms a day early.  I’ve found a perfect self-catering location that is reasonably priced and within 90 minutes of the bulk of the walks.  I’m on a mission (the obsessional collector aspect of my nature) to complete all the 214 Wainwright fells in 40 days and as of today, I am on 98 in 17 days.  But for the storm, I would have been 102 in 18 days so somewhat frustrated and if it hadn’t been for …

From time to time someone, knowing my interest in narrative sends me a link to yet another website collecting people’s stories.  One popped up in slack as I was writing this offering a “magic formula” to change the world.  It has some powerful stories all carefully curated by the design team.  They are organised into categories and you can find ones suited for their need, and then you can sign up children (as long as an adult is present) to follow the four-stage magic formula to create more of the same.  All worthy, all valuable in its way but I …
