Reimagining the Future of Developmental Power: Coaching and Facilitation in Human Development

The profession of coaching has radically expanded and diversified in its reach over the last 40 years. Driven by technical, social, and dynamic complexity in virtually all economically wealthy societies, coaching has broadened in application having attained a significant role and status within numerous professional domains such as healthcare, business, personal development, and governance. Coaches, facilitators, and transformative leaders each foster transformative learning with client systems in distinct ways depending on context, professional domain, and system level.

The course explores the coaching and facilitation relationship along with the competencies needed to foster client outcomes associated with states of well-being, transforming mindsets, developing meaning structures, shifts of habits, leaps in performance, and paths to living a creative and purposeful life.

Unfolding Understanding: Making Worlds with Dialogue

We live in times of deep relational chaos and complexity, where the information revolution is morphing into a deluge of propaganda and disinformation. As a consequence, it is becoming more and more difficult to cohere a foundation of facts and meanings necessary for collaboration and co-creation. This issue is a challenge to relationality at all living system levels: Individuals, families, teams, organizations, communities, societies, and geopolitical systems.

The effectiveness of any living system is linked to its dialogic capability which shapes both the intended and unintended consequences at all system levels. As dialogic capability is developed the system becomes more coherent, adaptive, and creative.

Integral Voices

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold" wrote Yeats about 100 years ago in his poem “The Second Coming.” While in the deafening incoherence of an unraveling center, inquiring and transforming conversations necessarily move to the edge. Edges are associated with danger, crisis, complexity, possibility, the unknown, and unknowable. We are now in edge times as never before.

Protected from the noise, a dialogic commons is a place that nurtures generative listening. A listening where the powers of resonance foster the emergence of creative imagination and a re-sacralizing coherence. Integral Voices convenes dialogues at evolving edges to catalyze a renaissance of real human development and the seeding of possible worlds.

Making Possible Worlds thumbnail

Making Possible Worlds

Human beings thrive on meaning and purpose. Bringing meaning and purpose together into a coherent professional livelihood is a challenge. In part, this is so because the professions paradoxically and often tragically undermine their purposeful intentions to meet human needs in support of the flourishing of individuals, communities, and societies.

The Dancer and The Dance thumbnail

The Dancer and The Dance

Individuals, families, teams, organizations, communities, and societies are all human systems nested within larger systems. Living systems change for better or worse without intentional or deliberate efforts, sometimes in profound ways. However, a portal to transformative change also opens when a system begins to be aware of itself. There is power and magic to systems change through collective intention and collaborative learning when there is systemic awareness of possibilities, including unintended consequences.
