Changing the Nature of Change

To create a resilient and adaptable business environment, organizational leaders and members need to examine their relationships with change (as natural and ongoing instead of as events), resistance (which, in most cases, is not because employees have bad attitudes), confrontation (as productive and healthy instead of win-lose), and collaboration (multi-level involvement instead of top down).
 
Through a process developed by Imaginal Wisdom, organization members learn to liberate themselves from fixed ways of thinking to create possibilities, actions, and outcomes neither previously conceived nor accessible through rational, analytic approaches. Only then can sustainable, transformational change emerge.

Inspired 21st Century Leadership

No learning or change occurs at the organizational level without first occurring at the individual level; an idea seldom recognized by business leaders or consultants. Discovering how to acknowledge and resolve the resistance, anxiety and fear of change through inclusive cooperation is central to becoming an inspired leader within your organization.
We all have inner wisdom, but few call upon it to effectively guide their creativity, relationships, and personal leadership visions.
