In a world facing increasing complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty, it is both good and necessary to be reminded of deeper truths and practical principles for creating lasting change. This book is for leaders, groups, communities, and networks desiring to increase our human capacity for creativity, well-being, and social change. This is a foundational book for anyone exploring the higher potential of groups or wanting to find personal ways of being a better leader, organizer, or collaborator. Readers will be impressed by the depth of insight and accessible style that offers both inspiration and practical real-world knowledge. “When you connect your dots, good things happen. When many find their dots interconnected, great things can happen. Collective wisdom doesn’t imply convergent thinking. An intra-connected group gains traction by respecting its members’ diverse perspectives. Intra-connected groups function with a picture window view, so decisions are based on what’s best for all.” Supported by the visionaries of the Fetzer Institute, this book is required reading for anyone interesting in collaborative social change. Based on nine years of research, The Power of Collective Wisdom shows how we can reliably tap into the extraordinary co-creative potential that exists whenever human beings gather together. The most significant challenges of our time- social, economic, and environmental- are calling for leaders to understand, trust, and draw upon relational and co-creative capacities. This inspiring and practical book points the way. Not only have authors written about collective wisdom, they have created it.
