Twenty-twenty culminated in a nexus of unprecedented human crises that challenged every aspect of business, technology, society, and humanity. The cataclysmic/seismic turbulence ultimately brought us to the edge by

  • challenging our fundamental notion of “normality”, forcing us to confront the paradoxical, and
  • ushering in a twenty-first century renaissance, welcoming us into the age of entanglement.

We can no longer embrace a traditional worldview founded on the orthodoxy of normality, at best, and abnormality, at worse, but must embrace an alternative worldview founded on the ubiquitous notion of the transnormal, transcending normality and abnormality.

We must re-conceptualize our experience of order and disorder, change and disruption, randomness and uncertainty and risk and crisis, complexity thinking and systems thinking and regenerative thinking, future-proofing and future-readying and becoming future-fit, business and technology platforms, gray rhinos, black swans, wicked problems, and other such concepts across business, strategy, leadership, culture, technology, execution, transformation, and other disciplines.

Through this emerging worldview of ecosystem thinking, every human enterprise must catalyze itself as an ecosystem (within a broader ecosystem) that embodies foresight, agility, sustainability, robustness, resilience, antifragility, and humanity while embracing the edge by

  • harnessing, beyond managing and navigating, the paradoxical and
  • flourishing (vs languishing), not only surviving but thriving, in the age of entanglement.

Join Si Alhir, a catalyst and alchemist, to explore how to leverage ecosystem thinking and cultivate an ecosystem enterprise that embraces the catalytic edge, harnessing the paradoxical and flourishing in the age of entanglement.

The Anatomy of Crises
We’ll use stories to explore handling crises and identify key concepts.

The Paradoxical and the Age of Entanglement
We’ll define, clarify, and situate core concepts (as a foundation) in the broader context (for a holistic viewpoint).

Ecosystem Thinking and Ecosystem Enterprises
We’ll use stories to explore how these concepts are operationalized in practice through ecosystem thinking.

Harnessing and Flourishing
We’ll explore practical, actionable, and highly impactful diagnostic and enablement tools, which together form a toolkit, for cultivating ecosystem enterprises.

Becoming an Ecosystem Enterprise
We’ll explore how the diagnostic and enablement tools culminate in a transformation strategy for cultivating ecosystem enterprises.
