Embracing Regeneration: Unlocking Nature's Wisdom for Transformative Leadership

The word sustainability made it into the mainstream vocabulary in the 1970s around the time of the first Earth Day. What's happened in practice?

It is a term that has been thrown around to make the actions of businesses more appealing without much data or proof to demonstrate their effectiveness. Sustainability is a term and practice that is designed to meet the needs of the current generation and has been adopted at the top levels of government - e.g. United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainability has become a buzzword. In this episode with Author Giles Hutchins we discuss regeneration as the new paradigm, that when defined well and understood, can be measured and transcend the test of time by living and learning to work in harmony with the very essence of life itself - nature.

Giles states it simply. Regeneration is about working the way life works. By recognizing that we as busy consumers have fallen out of sync with life, and now it’s important to allow ourselves to remember the inherent grammar that is innate within nature.

The deeper response goes into three levels of insight that will help unlock our potential as leaders and to reimagine organizational consciousness.

Join us on this transformative journey as we take a deeper dive into the power of regeneration and learning from living systems, broken into three interconnected levels.

  1. Understanding nature, nature's patterns, principles and processes, including disciplines such as biomimicry, circular economics and systems thinking that help us work with the principles and processes we find within life with an open mind.
  2. With an open heart, systemic participation within living systems;embody experience working with systemic dynamics within the organization as a living system and immersed within life.
  3. The third level is open will: Leading to an existential shift tuning into nature's wisdom, and knowing that there is actually much more to life than meets the eye. It is not only the biological understanding of life, but a bio-psycho-spiritual receptivity and opening into life, which allows us to work with the inherent wisdom, innate within life. Together, these work to create an embodied regenerative leadership consciousness.
