Two insights that I wanted to share two insights with you that have emerged for me while participating in the OC online conversations.
It seems that our collective way of thinking (which we are usually unaware of) is what can collapse the movement's potential. I believe the following transitions of awareness are crucial to OC's ability to create and sustain true transformation and change:
1- A SHIFT OF FOCUS FROM DIRECTED LEADERSHIP TO INDIVIDUAL EMPOWERMENT
- A change FROM eliminating the idea of leadership that is based on a perceived need for unified direction and authority, TO allowing and empowering all individuals and groups to author themselves based on common intent, drive, and passion.
2- A SHIFT OF FOCUS FROM UNIFIED ALIGNMENT TO INTERDEPENDENT CONNECTION
- A change FROM the idea of everyone needing to be aligned under a unified mission, TO allowing people to gather in many ways while keeping threads of connection to all other clusters. The focus becomes how to connect rather than who's idea is best. This allows a fractal network of actionable ideas to emerge, rather than a fractured set of directed ideals.
Maybe we begin an online list here at OC.org that becomes a set of guiding principles for sustaining OC's ability to create change. Is anyone interested?
