Collaborative Circles

The book

Collaborative circles

‘The next Buddha will be a circle of creative innovators who dedicate their talent and soul to the well-being of all living and non-living beings on earth.’ (Rudy Vandamme)

Good news: a summary chapter will be published in the third edition of the famous Change Handbook (2019). As such it is recognized as a ‘method for engaging whole systems’

A new spirit emerges in this momentous era in which individuals find other individuals with whom they adventure development, innovation and change. These new kinds of groups are less ego-driven and align their collaboration to a higher purpose. Their ultimate goal is to act to the good of humanity and earth, including the global, ecological and spiritual dimension. Collaborative circles are society’s best hope to smoothen the path of organizational, professional, and social transitions.

Despite their good intentions, many of these groups end in frustration. It takes more than motivation and dreams to turn long-term collaboration into a real transition of existing practices. Collaboration requires design principles in order to succeed.

The book describes how you can design and facilitate a team that creates professional, organizational or social change. A multi-layered, ecological worldview is translated into a hands-on method of collaboration and circle gatherings. Social entrepreneurs, change makers, leaders and community workers can use these principles to establish an empowering long-term collaboration with an effective impact on larger wholes.
