Systemics ... the Final Frontier

Systemics... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the systemic practitioner J.R.Still. His continuing mission to explore & help strange new systems. To seek out new tools and understanding, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Captain's log, stardate 0902.2012.1900. A talk to the people of the FOAM Galaxy, they seem to speak complexity and systems thinking, more research is required in their grasp of emergence, relationship mapping and constellations. The Cynefin story continues.....

Mail to mannaz on their requirements for Global Leadership requirements

Dear Mannaz,
i have been in the fringes of your organisation for nearly five years, waiting for evolution to turn the next corner.
I am mostly rejected by Mannaz people as being too unconventional, difficult and challenging.
If now is the time to embrace some leading edge thinking and new tools emerging in the world of global leadership then i would be happy to talk.
I applaud and support your list or requirements in Global leadership facilitation. In itself it is a challenge for the entrained thinkers and linearly trained managers that populate the majority of businesses around the world.
The leading edge of the next generation of these requirements throws down an even bigger challenge.
Ways of thinking will soon be seen as a requirement; Many words have been said on systems thinking, but that's only the beginning. Systemic thinking brings together systems,complexity and learning.
Next up will be an understanding of cognitive processes, at its heart cognitive filters, and the systemic nature of the relationship between Intellect, emotion, the physical body and the spiritual dimension.
Finally the next generation of tools requires a new set of skills; collective - distributed thinking and decision making, self organising systems, collective emergence and organic and systemic maturity amongst the more important.
I understand the notion of patience, resonance and attractors so hopefully i will still be available to talk, when you are ready.

This is a blog on the systemic perspective of the Belgium political crisis, and a re-awakening of this blog.
I'll translate it if anyone is interested?
