Peter is a recognised public speaker on the theme of leadership and organisation in times of major transition – often referred to as non-linear change. When the traditional ways of doing things start to fail us, and the new ways are not yet clear, how do we as individual leaders navigate ourselves, our organisations and our communities through the turbulence? Linear change strategies no longer work.
Peter draws on a broad pallet of disciplines including quantum physics, transpersonal psychology, systems thinking, deep ecology and integral philosophy to help us see our current situation more clearly, feel its relevance to us and those around us, and inspire us to act. Given the current systemic challenges we are face, most recently that of the financial system, his message is more relevant than ever.
Subjects that Peter can be invited to speak about include:
- transitions in complex times
- organisational change in the context of societal change
- evolutionary leadership
- volution theory
- applying energetics to large scale systems
