Human potential has long been underutilized.  When COVID interrupted routine in business and personal lives, it also opened the chance to collectively co-create a more successful future. Will we seize the moment?

Doing so demands a reframing of the pandemic from a threat to human survival to the opportunity for humans to thrive using chaotic conditions. Though probably not viewed as ideal, the pandemic is a milder precursor to what we can experience when a key species collapse takes place.  The loss of bees would wipe out food security; the loss of ants would result in ecological collapse. Yet bees have been sprayed by insecticides known to be poisonous. Clearly decision-making neglected to weigh the impact and systemic effects.

Humans are without question the most destructive species on the planet and the dominant species. What legacy would we prefer?

In the May 21st webinar jointly delivered by Emanuele Rapisarda and I (an absolute treat if only due to the musical contribution you’ll hear) you’ll see the underlying systemic driver behind Carpe Diem. See that program here.

July 9th, a series of three interactive workshops starts on site very affordably priced to provide a low-risk entry point to a new way of seeing and being in the world.

Register now for one or all three. You’ll gain a new outlook on where to from here, how decisions need to be made differently to better match complexity, and a closer look at the more advanced skills behind autonomous, self-directed organizations. Between racism, command and control, and metrics that don’t matter to economic or ecological vitality, it is time to rethink and co-create how we relate to one another.

Human vitality is not served through desperate moves to retain control, but by evolving into the challenge-skill gap. The design of the future is up to us all, individually and collectively.
