Invoking Emergence in Times of Uncertainty

This is one of the best posts / articles I’ve read in a long time on emergence. Peggy Holman, the author, has a unique gift of giving voice and applying it in practice.

I love her story — transforming a prison system where the leader must work with both the tradition needs of a board and yet the visionary needs of the system.

I lover her description of emergence, including the qualities of the new that show up when connected. “Mom’s nose, Dad’s eyes, but still something unique in and of itself.”

I love the three questions she asks to invoke the emergence of the new…

1. How do we disrupt coherence compassionately?
2. How do we engage dissonance creatively?
3. How do we realize novelty wisely?

Her post is here. Enjoy
