Program Description:
In the shifting global environment, old patterns and paradigms of organizing are crumbling.  A new paradigm focused on interdependence, synergy, and collaboration is needed to build stronger organizations and social institutions.  As Gen Y’s enter the workforce in large numbers, virtual teams work across continents and time zones, and leaders rely more on coaching than solo-heroic practices, new forms of organizing are needed.

Higher Consciousness Organizations that embody 21st century values and vision provide an alternative to the Industrial Revolution era bureaucratic form of organizations. Higher Consciousness Organizations (HCOs) embody such values to engage, inspire and sustain employees through turbulence and changes.  HCOs build resiliency and unleash human potential based on social contracts, team synergy, and interdependence among participants.  In this session, Dr. Linda Ferguson will outline qualities of Higher Consciousness Organizations from her book, “Path for Greatness”.  She’ll offer ideas for how these qualities can lead to greater engagement, creativity, and commitment of employees in your organization.
