We are in a continual quest to discover ways to find leaders who can take us where we really want to go (as opposed to those “representatives” who are failing us miserably in congress, polluting our world, and keeping harmful conflicts alive). Today’s guest, David Isaacs, BA, PD co-developed The World Cafe with Juanita Brown, PhD. The World Cafe is an approach to “source” the leadership from collective intelligence and the collective wisdom of a group.
David, Cofounder of The World Cafe, is president of Clearing Communications, and has been an international leadership consultant for more than 30 years. We will explore the how and why of designing, convening, and hosting conversations around the most important questions in the service of nourishing life for all the stakeholders, how to move from over-focus on the current problem to the development of “possibility thinking.” We will also examine the all-too-common problem of separation – of how we as individuals have become separated from the collective we, and how the cultivation of relationship can be healing and transformative. David will present the 7 principles used in the creation of The World Cafe, and how they relate to the awakening of the inner leader.
