Biomimicry Image - CRTApplying Nature's Genius to Building Healthy, Adaptive and Resilient Organizations

Friday, May 20, 2016 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM

Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, Sweet Room (UR 241)

CRT, Great Lakes Biomimicry and Conscious Capitalism NEO are happy to collaborate on this event.

Since the industrial era, we have designed organizations like machines, built for predictability and control. While predictability and control are essential in certain areas of business, machine models fall short of meeting the needs of organizations in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain and ambiguous.

What if we looked to 3.8 billion years of natural systems intelligence to create a better model? A living systems model? By the conscious emulation of nature's genius and strategies refined over billions of years, we can learn powerful ways of creating conditions in our organizations that promote thriving human ecosystems.

This session will explore how a living systems model can help us create new insights and innovations for organizational design, development and leadership. It will also highlight alignments between this approach and the philosophies of the Conscious Companies.

Introduction by Pablo Guevara, executive member of the Conscious Capitalism NEO Chapter.
