Maybe you're a person who's busy with their lives, but nonetheless unsettled by all the unprecedented conflict swirling around us. Maybe you're a coach or consultant who's aware of all the disruptive trends alive in the world, and want to reshape the way you're thinking about these threats into a new framework that's more useful for your work. Or, perhaps you're a senior executive who's acutely aware of these disruptive technological inventions, polarizing political dynamics, and anxiety-laden conflicts, and consequently have no choice but to look for more effective ways of responding to them. Whatever's prompted you, I'm glad you're here.
In September,TLO is going to sponsor a Dialogue Session -- titled Comprehending the 21st Century -- that will be designed to give those who participate the opportunity to explore and discuss at least four issues;
- The threats, challenges, and opportunities that the 21st Century is bringing into our lives [Lost In The 21st Century],
- The ways in which the complexity of these phenomena are overwhelming our ability to comprehend and respond to them [Leading in the 21st Century],
- The various ways that are currently available to us to address these complexities [for example, the interventions discussed in TLO's January 2018 Blog 7 Signs -- 7 Doorways, and those you'll find in thought papers titled TLO's Three Circles of Awareness and Concern).
- The steps we can take to develop the new mindsets, modes of thinking, and adaptive skills we need to deal with all this 21st Century complexity [TLO's Learning Resource Center].
Essentially, Comprehending the 21st Century is going to be, for those who design and participate in it, an opportunity to explore our worries, face up to our spooky anxieties, and take a direct look at the ways each of us can strengthen our our "back-of-mind" awarenesses. It's going to be an opportunity to expand our meaning-making abilities in ways that make our lives more meaningful.
