Join Michael Spayd for a session on Systemic Consciousness using the link below.

Systemic consciousness could be described as how a system — whether a team, group, or organization — makes sense of its world: what its “rules” are, how one remains in good standing within the community, what it values, what it believes. We can tap directly into this consciousness by tuning our own perception beyond our individual consciousness, by learning to read and skillfully articulate the emotional field in a room, and by using systemic constellations to see the effects of this consciousness on the system, which allows us to experience the relationship between different elements of the system and their dynamic tensions.

It is a self-organizing experience which releases the inherent creativity and leadership in people.

What’s open Space?

Open Space Technology (OST) is a method for organizing and running a meeting or multi-day conference, where participants have been invited in order to focus on a specific, important task or purpose.

In contrast with pre-planned conferences where who will speak at which time is scheduled often months in advance, and therefore subject to many changes, OST sources participants once they are physically present at the live event venue. In this sense OST is participant-driven and less organizer-convener-driven. Pre-planning remains essential; you simply need much less pre-planning.

The actual agenda-schedule of presentations is partly or mostly unknown until people begin arriving. The scheduling of which talk, on which topic in which room is created by people attending, once they arrive. At the end of each OST meeting, a debriefing doc is created summarizing what worked and what did not work so the process can go more smoothly next year.

About the Session:

We all have to work together. In a time of unexpected sequestration, there is a drive for us all to become individual silos, each plugging away at home. But, in order for professionals to have agency, build a quality product, and end the day fulfilled, they need to have clarity of expectation of themselves and their teammates. Rapid feedback loops are crucial for giving people clarity.  This can only come from collaboration.  We will not survive as armies of one.

Jim Benson will discuss collaboration, uncertainty, and team-centered approaches to create focal points for uncertainty, allow people to deal with complexity, reduce stress,  and focus more.
