COMPLIMENTARY WEBINAR

Introducing the Systems View of Life into Organizations with Fritjof Capra

Wednesday, August 3, 2016
10am-11am Pacific Time

Fritjof Capra, Ph.D., is a scientist, educator, activist, and author of many international bestsellers that connect conceptual changes in science with broader changes in worldview and values in society. Over the past 30 years, he has been engaged in a systematic exploration of how the sciences and society are ushering in a similar shift in worldview, or paradigms, leading to a new vision of reality and a new understanding of the social implications of this cultural transformation.

Fritjof's most recent project is Capra Course, a new online course based on his latest book, The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision, written with his long-time friend and colleague Pier Luigi Luisi, one of the world's leading authorities on the origin of life and self-organisation of synthetic and natural systems. The result is a book that presents, for the first time, a coherent systemic framework that integrates four dimensions of life — biological, cognitive, social and ecological — and discusses the profound philosophical, social and political implications of this new paradigm.

In this webinar Simon Robinson, co-author of Holonomics: Business Where People and Planet Matter, will discuss with Fritjof the importance to global brands of developing their own systems view of life, and what guidance and inspiration change agents working with brands can learn.

What You Will Learn:

  • The critical role of systems thinking to solve the major problems of our global crisis, which are systemic problems — all interconnected and interdependent — and require corresponding systemic solutions.
  • How key insights from systems thinking can be applied in a business context, such as organization, communities of practice, leadership and emergence.
  • How businesses can develop a new generation of leaders leaders who are ecologically literate and capable of thinking systemically.
