Worldview Intelligence – St. Paul, MN – March 26 & 27, 2015

Worldview Intelligence: Transforming Differences into Progress

worldview awareness day panoramic

Building connectedness in a 21st Century world of highly divergent perspectives, experiences and cultures to work and learn together more effectively

Each of us has a worldview. It impacts how we see and interact with the world, events, situations and other people.  Our Worldviews influence our communication, decision-making and workplace cultures.  Most of this happens unconsciously.  Worldview awareness helps us explore individual and collective assumptions, beliefs and value systems with curiosity and non-judgment. This opens the potential for more comprehensive approaches and solutions to emerge on a range of issues and opportunities, including those that might be mildly oppositional to completely divisive to seemingly unsolvable. Experiencing and understanding the transformative power of worldview awareness often leads to more creative solutions to the human dynamics challenges we routinely encounter in all kinds of places.
