Peter Koenig on source, money and consciousness

... from thinking of it as a light hypothesis, called it 'source hypothesis' beginning, then after about six times I had this experience, I called them 'principles', maybe, and then after about 12, times, I started suggesting might even be 'laws', but I thought that was too strong, so I backed down to 'principle...more

... when I talk to people and when I've seen your work discussed out there. So perhaps a good place to go from here then is for you to share some of the principles that you've developed over the course of testing this out, some of the things that seem to be common around this role of source.

.... Peter Koenig: Gladly. So the work started in 2009, what I call 'sourcework', (I like to put it in one word), and at the beginning I didn't have any principles, I was just sharing what seemed to me common sense until a good friend, Charlie Davies said "You need to put numbers on things. Come up with 10 princ...more

... My standard version is now 26. But many of them, (it may sound long), but many of them are interrelated. So it's a body of work which has numbers of principles which interrelate with one another. So the first one, (and they're all pretty simple, actually), but the first one is that for every initiative, for ...more
... could be the source, identifying that person and understanding the role there. So that's the first and quite important principle. And then the other principles look at the role then of the source. Is it okay just to carry on talking like this, or do you have another question?...more
... or something stronger, that you feel what your life is about. You can create a party or you can invite people for dinner and you're using these same principles. But when it comes to your life, it requires a certain level of development in a development of what you could call your connection to your inner sou...more

..., there's an atom and then there's a molecule, and then there's a cell, and then there's a body and then now extrapolating from that, of course, same principles, it's a self-organising organisation. But the other things we're looking at nature, and here we're looking at a human created enterprise, like a huma...more

Aaron Dignan on being complexity conscious and people positive

...d, you know, open organisation, and all these different kinds of grand theories about how we work. And they each have their own lexicon and their own principles, and mindsets. And I felt like it's too much to bear, when I made a list of them. I mean, you can easily write down 48 or 50 principles that suddenly...more
...and their own principles, and mindsets. And I felt like it's too much to bear, when I made a list of them. I mean, you can easily write down 48 or 50 principles that suddenly become overwhelming, and how can anyone be sure that they're in alignment with that on a day-to-day basis? So the thought was how do we...more

And when they tell us the answers, the practices, the principles, the policies, etc - we just pinned them to the wall, both virtually and physically. And as they begin to coalesce around different groups, we realis...more
... relate to each other and mindsets. How do all of these things need to shift and what do we need to learn and unlearn in order for these new kinds of principles and practices to really take hold? What are your thoughts on that? Aaron Dignan: I mean, it's an age old debate in our world, and it certainly comes ...more

Nand Kishore Chaudhary from Jaipur Rugs on love, collective consciousness and self-management

...ow that there's proof, right? So what advice would you give to people who are listening? Who, like you, are interested in introducing self-management principles to fulfil the purpose of their organisation even more strongly? What advice would you give them in terms of what you're learning so far? NK Chaudhary...more
...hink this is something that I'm learning more and more that if we really want everyone to flourish and create an environment based on self-management principles, it's not going to happen by chance. And it's not going to happen only by introducing new structures. But it's so much about intention and habits. An...more

The main one is the mindset shift from "what do I believe is the best thing to do" to "what is most likely to work for everyone". And it is li...more

Another principle is that when I'm trying to make a decision, I focus on the underlying criteria and principles, and what's important, not on the specifics. Again, if you look at this mosque situation, it was either "they come in or they don't come in", but th...more

The first one is: how to speak the deepest truth, which means owning it more within myself than it being about you. This is what's important to me, ...more

Amy Edmondson on psychological safety and the future of work

...y’re on some stage of that journey. It would be great if you could share some advice or wisdom in terms of some pitfalls people can avoid or some key principles that might help them on their way… AE: I think the biggest pitfall is thinking you’re supposed to be perfect. Now no one thinks that consciously, bu...more

So, for example, a principle might be: it has got to be focused on the work. Another way to say that is focused on the custome...more
