I want to share a pattern that I have observed. Several times. Inside and outside of my organisation.
It's to do with people that have not yet had an epiphany that collaboration/trust/moderation and open governance / democratic organisations can really work for them or the organisations they belong to.
The realities of networked societies (Castells) or Collaborative commons (Rifkin et al) they might understand (or not) intellectually from their heads but these realities absolutely do not form part of their narratives.
They find themselves observing such these realities but not sufficiently aligning with them but nevertheless they are implicated either through work, governance or a perceived competitive threat or opportunity.
The reality I describe above is currently one in which most people on the planet find themselves. Most people will successfully emerge into a new paradigm an become staunch supporters. Not all will make it.
New paradigms only happen every few hundred years or so. Really new ones anyway. So what are the patterns to accelerate the transformation and to maximize the chances that people survive the change?
I have lots of case studies if you are looking for experimentation material!
