I am always in awe that nature offers so much rich teaching on how to approach complexity with elegance.
It’s easy to forget that the very thing that I work with my clients to “protect” has a 4 billion year advantage of learning to adapt, respond, evolve. Mother Nature has a thing or two to teach us when it comes to operating at conditions that are far from equilibrium.
When we gather people together to collaborate on complex problems, we are doing more than giving them a meeting space and a participatory process to engage. And our goal isn’t just to find “the answer” or set of answers that can be immediately implementable.
