Synopsis:

Peter Senge. C. Otto Scharmer. Joseph Jaworski. Betty Sue Flowers. This remarkable group of leaders met in a Cambridge, Massachusetts, living room for a year to discuss the nature of transformational change—how it is brought about, and how it changes people. This book is the result of their wide-ranging conversations, and introduces the idea of “presence”—a concept from nature, that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts–to business. In making this transition, they ask themselves, and the reader, “What question lies at the heart of my work?” and “How can I set aside my narrow viewpoint and understand the larger whole?” Each author shares deeply personal stories about ways in which they made themselves present in the world, and in doing so, became part of the larger whole.

Drawing on a diverse supporting cast of 150 scientists, social leaders, and entrepreneurs including Rupert Sheldrake, Buckminster Fuller, Lao Tzu, and Carl Jung, Presence explains how profound collective change occurs. This astonishing and completely original work will richly reward readers with an understanding of what it means to be an authentic agent of change.

Book Description: Crown Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Currency. 236 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. Presence is an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning. In wide-ranging conversations held over a year and a half, organizational learning pioneers Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers explored the nature of transformational change--how it arises, and the fresh possibilities it offers a world dangerously out of balance. The book introduces the idea of presence --a concept borrowed from the natural world that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts--to the worlds of business, education, government, and leadership. Too often, the authors found, we remain stuck in old patterns of seeing and acting. By encouraging deeper levels of learning, we create an awareness of the larger whole, leading to actions that can help to shape its evolution and our future. Drawing on the wisdom and experience of 150 scientists, social leaders, and entrepreneurs, including Brian Arthur, Rupert Sheldrake, Buckminster Fuller, Lao Tzu, and Carl Jung, Presence is both revolutionary in its exploration and hopeful in its message. This astonishing and completely original work goes on to define the capabilities that underlie our ability to see, sense, and realize new possibilities--in ourselves, in our institutions and organizations, and in society itself.
