Learning To Work In Cha-Order
July 8, 2011 § 2 Comments
Some learning to share after my conversation yesterday with Charlotte Millar from WWF.
To foster innovation, creativity and emerging ideas, we must learn to work in the intersection between chaos and order. This means neither a free-for-all – as we are held together by a strong common purpose, but nor are we seeking to fully control precise outcomes and structure.
Movements can either be controlled, or they can grow. Currently, we do not have the size or strength to challenge the power structures that prevent us from building a sustainable, equitable world. That necessitates building our movement, and therefore allowing ourselves to work in cha-order.
