• The presence of an absence

    The presence of an absence

    May 2nd, 2016 | Expressive Change | Allan Kaplan | No Comments

    The recognition – that we are all now so close, our global footprint so large, and all our processes of life so befouled – releases increasing tendencies towards management and control. We appear caught in a vast paradox that exceeds our capacity for irony – we foreground ourselves as the solution to the problems that we have created through foregrounding ourselves.

    “It is only when we don’t have a social purpose that we’re truly serving the world.” That’s a pretty mind-bending statement, especially for those of us who are working in social purpose organizations. What exactly do you mean?

    “My name is Tolulope Ilesanmi, I am a Cleaner. That is not a confession. It is a celebration. It is also a protest. I was a banker. That is a confession.” These were my opening words when I spoke at the Desautels African Business Initiative conference in […]

    What if, in research, we paid attention to how we paid attention? What if in strategic planning we were as introspective as we are analytical? What if our work were a true expression of our humanity? Would our capacity for innovation grow? I want to find out. So, I’ve launched […]

    Film release- An intro to expressive change

    * Now subtitled in Español & Français *

    The short film that we’ve been working on over the last year and a half is finally finished! The 16-minute film is intended as a conversation starter for staff, volunteers & funders of social purpose organisations. Through a compilation of crowd-sourced interviews, it challenges us to pay closer attention to the link between an organisation’s social purpose and how that purpose is lived inside the organization on a daily basis.

    Podcast: Emerging from hibernation

    July 29th, 2015 | Expressive Change | Podcast | No Comments

    In 2012, we hosted a podcast with Aerin Dunford of The Berkana Institute about the organization’s decision to go into an undefined period of hibernation. Given its focus on promoting ‘living systems’ principles in social change work, we were curious to learn how they were putting these principles into practice internally. Berkana recently resurfaced from its restful state, and so we followed up with Aerin to find out what the experience has been like for them.

    “Oh and of course as part of the job you will also have to clean homes and offices too”, Tolu said, his twinkling eyes examining me. Mhm. Interesting. We were sitting in his office after my job interview to do the communications and marketing at Zenith Cleaners, which had turned into a 2-hour long conversation.

    Becoming human through human-centered design

    March 9th, 2015 | Expressive Change | Rachel Griner | 2 Comments

    After years of practice, a pivotal moment came when I realized human-centered design could actually be an expression of our humanity. To drive true innovation, I could blur the line between designer and user and create the space for us all to advance our human potential. This happened during my Executive on Loan assignment to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

    A conversation with Dayna Cunningham

    February 23rd, 2015 | Expressive Change | Tana Paddock | No Comments

    I’m just finishing up a fascinating six-week on-line course on Theory U. I found this 10-minute excerpt from Otto Scharmer’s interview with Dayna Cunningham particularly moving. She shares about her experience as a civil rights lawyer and how she came to understand the importance of developing an individual and collective capacity for empathy in social change work.
