Is it time to choose a new Power Dynamics Model?

We are with the many dealing directly with the Covid-19 pandemic. Large scale natural disruptions tend to simultaneously highlight major gaps and new opportunities too coalesce on a global scale.  
 

we are with the many adjacent…

We are with the many who are adjacent in time and space dealing with the accompanying Financial, Logistical, Analytical, Biological, Social (FLABS) shockwaves. Many communities (micro, meso and macro in size) nested among the world’s many cultures and subcultures are currently facing making long-lasting FLABS decisions in very short amounts of time. Nothing in their life (personal or professional experience, training or education) has prepared them to negotiate what to do next.  
 

LinkedIn members time to lead…

It has long been our view the ± 250 million active LinkedIn members are this planet’s go-to set of thinkers, deciders and doers. You are the key to moving this Planet back into good FLABS health. How you think, decide and act as individuals, and within your micro, meso and macro cultures, will make a meaningful difference. To that end, isn’t it about time we drop the notion current business models and their associated FLABS power dynamics—each sharing a similar underlying, narrow-casted premise of how business “should run” as a machine, or other industrial frameworks and platforms treating time, space and resources as commoditized modular parts—are sufficient for what the world faces now?  
 

nature as shot caller…

We see a basic flip emerging in how time, space and resources relate creating open space so more meaningful models can emerge and thrive. We express this phenomena to ourselves as:
Allowing Nature to be the shot caller: in time, space and resources. In other words, treating business, and its FLABS power dynamics as a single living organism spanning the globe…
 

dropping seeds of innovation

With this in mind, we drop the following notions, each designed to seed new experiences and organizational models capable of working with Nature to self-heal through self-balancing:

1) The What: Exchange follow-the-leader cultures and their go-along-to-get-along mindsets and behavioral patterns with polyphony alternatives.

2) The How: We suggest starting with flipping the notions of how time, space and resources relate within your community’s Power Dynamics—As presented by @Kelly Bates, @Cynthia Silva Parker and @Curtis Ogden in their article Power Dynamics: The Hidden Element to Effective Meetings, and more…

…In our view, the Interaction Institute for Social Change’s power dynamic notions can be extended more broadly to include all human interactions systems: human-to-human, human-to-technology, human-to-physical world, and back again℠.
