Anders Verder

Dit boek is geschreven na jarenlang nadenken over het economisch systeem: hoe kan het beter, anders, met meer betekenis worden ingericht? Het is het resultaat van andere inzichten, opruiende ideeën, onbegaanbare paden, halsstarrig volhouden dat het anders kan, inspirerende aha-momenten en regelrechte eureka-gedachten. Hoe zou het verder gaan met deze wereld, die zo maakbaar leek voor de coronacrisis?

The existential dimension of transitions

“To further (economic) transitions in society as professionals we need a more fundamental and more complete understanding of the existential dimension of transitions. We need to integrate the idea of human consciousness as a driving force for change, and intervene in ways that mobilize the creative capital of people”.

Shinta uses interventions aimed at deep personal growth in relation to organizational development to invoke a new coprorate culture that gives a new direction to the role of business as a vehicle of value for people and society. Enabling her clients to move from business as usual in a conventional economy to business unusual in an ecosystem of regeneration.

A global community of business leaders, scientists, creative agents and social entrepreneurs is rising. They stand at the frontier of a new world as a bold community of practice. It’s their daily business to work on the re-envisioning and building of our society, our economy and our businesses around new values, awakening conscious leadership, social innovation and human flourishing. I am interviewing 21 of these forward thinkers, see-ers and doers during the Corona crisis to ask them: WHAT is manifesting NOW on EARTH? Take some time to share the space with professionals letting you in on their perspectives of the future.
