Welcome to our digital community of practice that gathers global thought leaders, practitioners, and world leading experts who are passionate about sustainable and regenerative business transformation through leadership development, experiential learning, and systems innovation.
We explore what it takes to be a sustainability and regenerative leader today – specifically, the skills, mindsets, and capabilities that are essential for success – and how to leverage a variety of experiential learning methodologies to accelerate personal and organizational transformation for greater scale, impact and results…before it’s too late.
A Sustainability Mindshift is:
What is “regeneration”? What is a “regenerative leader”? What is a “regenerative business”? Find answers to these questions in the video below.
This video was produced in preparation for a recent talk I gave at DisruptHR Portland ME. The format and requirement of the event was to create a pecha kucha presentation (20 slides x 15 seconds = 5 min each) to give the audience – mostly HR executives, students, and consultants – a sneak peek at emerging trends in the field of HR.
Regeneration is an emerging paradigm that is calling us away from the dominant but dying mechanistic mindset where people and organizations are treated as machines. In this worldview, efficiency, productivity, and profit are prioritized at the expense of the health, wellbeing, and thrivability of employees, society, and the planet. This has been a leading cause of today’s greatest environmental and social challenges. Many of today’s sustainability efforts have fallen into the trap of using this mechanistic perspective to try to “fix” our broken systems.
As Albert Einstein once said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
The emerging regenerative paradigm and mindset treats people and organizations as part of a much broader interconnected web of life, where there is a renewed sense of connection, wellbeing, and purpose that are in balance with the world around us. It is here that employees – the heartbeat of every organization – can collectively create a future in which everyone thrives.
Regeneration is nature’s way of cultivating the conditions for life to thrive. It is about aligning everything we do with living systems…with LIFE itself.
