the Theory U process of a deep dive into generative listening – beyond
bias, facts and empathy – Martin will take you on a journey to meet your
own blind spots to being a listener who can lead facilitate a group
into leading out of the future rather than the aged solutions of our
past. The theme of spiritual intelligence will provide the grist for us
to confront our closed minds, feelings and blocks to action. This will
be a space where the content and observation of each others declaration
of inner position on the subject can give us a nudge to finding what we
need to do to open the mind, heart and will to generate new prototype
solutions in community. Spiritual intelligence, along with intellectual
and emotional intelligence (to name but a few other layers of our mind
body complex) is fast becoming an essential skill set in scientific
discovery and social renewal – but, what is it?
This evening will take you on a journey to listen to your own
meta-paradigms and hopefully open a few new possibilities about the
nature of the world we live and work in.
