Dialogue transcripts published

The Integral Leadership Review is publishing the series of dialogues that I have been having with Nish Dubashia inspired by David Bohm and J Krishnamurti’s dialogues.

Leading from the Field talk

In this talk I describe the twelve principles of energetic stewardship from Leading from the Field. If we assume, as both the new scientists and ancient wisdom traditions tell us, that all of reality is actually composed of interlocking dynamic energy fields, that life is a continuous process of organising energetic information into form, then what does that mean for the way we need to lead our organisations, be they business, civil society, government, community or even family systems? This talk goes into the broader perspective as well as exploring twelve specific principles for taking into account the subtle dimension of reality as we lead our initiatives. Peter’s latest book, Leading from the Field, provides an illustrated guide to this work.

The talk:
