I want you to know you are not alone as a business leader and entrepreneur as you go about the challenging work of building a beautiful business.
Together we will do far more than you will do solo.
I am an Integrity Architect for misfits, mavericks and change makers hell bent on creating beautiful businesses that supports a world that works for everyone.
I coach, consult, teach, write and speak on Integrity Architecture for beautiful business. Economics that actually does take care of the home. Currency, finance, money and flow that supports all human thriving. Organisational design that enables self managed, deliberately developmental teams.
And let’s not forget the messy human to human stuff – agreements, commitments, responsibility, expectations…because so often we step over the very glue of effective relationships and high functioning teams in our haste to build products and services.
I partner with my clients. Not in the traditional 9-5, but as an objective integrated member of the team. You are on my mind, after hours, on weekends, because I care…as in truly care, about your business. About you.
Beautiful business that serves the wellbeing of all of humanity has been my love for 3 decades.
Having been introduced to the work of R. Buckminster Fuller in my mid twenties, and remaining a student since then, I speak systems,design and the architecture of relationships and integrity with fluency. I have worked within the corporate, leadership, startup and future of business space with 100% focus since 1998 – in the early days as a coach, then evolving to create and lead businesses and partner with teams worldwide.
As an outlier and misfit, my world is the outliers and mistfits. Those rare few who are committed to a more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible.
What I can say about me that speaks volumes is that my life has been deeply informed, since my mid twenties, by Bucky Fuller. As in really deeply powerfully informed…model building informed….question everything informed…
What does this mean?
*All of my work starts with Integrity. Easy word to say, hard to live by, even harder to build a life and enterprise with integrity as the foundation. Integrity =wholeness = holds its shape = start with the Universe first. To be able to go to sleep each night knowing that you have lived the highest expression of your integrity…this is to have a good sleep.
*I build models. I help others build models. I like to co-build models most of all. “Argue with the model.” I am most passionate about building new models that make the old obsolete. I have built models of organisational design that enable people to thrive as they co-create awesome projects together, without human upset and entirely self managed. Check out The Trust Manifesto for Big Blue Sky. The result of 30 years of model building. It works. Or relational synergistic design.
If you want a team of people who are mostly self managed, take full responsibility, handle breakdown and upset with ease and speed, then I can help you create this.
*I see systems, human relational geometry… how to bring diverse people together to co-create awesome projects.
*I am constantly on the edge of the future, a frontiers person scanning the horizon for the emergent..I make sense of complexity…and as such I offer so much value to you by being able to see far beyond the now, the urgent.
*I know synergy. As an act. That alone my effectiveness is limited. Working in synergy my contribution has the potential to be exponential, able to co-create impossible things with you. The solo journey of the leader/founder/CEO doesn’t have to be a path you take.
*I know blockchain, and the thoughtful application of technology to enable human thriving. (In distinction to technology ruling humans.) I am on the governance board of Common.is to create a Universal Basic Income within a global virtual community using blockchain and complimentary currency. Because..well..we are going to need this and I am so exhausted by good humans, myself included, doing great work that adds value to all, and not being valued in our current capitalistic model.
*I am fluent in complimentary currency, accounting for value in multiple domains. Let us NOT reduce a shared sunrise to a transaction able to be commoditised. I have studied the global economy and monetary systems since 2006. Because…well because I love to know how systems work, and why the current system is failing so many people and the Earth. And I wanted to know how much of a pawn I was in someone else’s game. And why good people are so easily exploited, their value contribution often marginalised against some other weird measurement. (Amazon will be able to deliver you highly needed new obnoxico by drone, but people cannot access basic health care…?? In what Universe is that OK?)
*I know strategy, alignment, how to ask the hard questions that most people deliberately seek to ignore.
*How to facilitate groups and teams – through complexity, to develop strategy, to bring back coherence when there is misalignment. How to work with three levels of government, community, business, education, science…to bring people together to work on stuff that matters…because…well because it’s time we did that..
*Mostly I am in love with the idea of Beautiful Business. When beauty is present, in all domains, then integrity is as well.
