Engaging Emergence: The Patterns that Make Sense of Turbulent Times

Guests: Peggy Holman and Liz Rykert

Peggy Holman, a Seattle-based author and consultant, has helped explore a nascent field of social technologies that engage "whole systems" of people from organizations and communities in creating their own future. She consults on strategies for enabling diverse groups to face complex issues by turning presentation into conversation and passivity into participation. In the second edition of The Change Handbook, she joins with her co-authors to profile sixty-one change processes. Her new book, Engaging Emergence: Turning Upheaval into Opportunity(Berrett-Koehler, September 2010), dives beneath these change methods to make visible deeper patterns, principles, and practices for change that can guide us through turbulent times.You can find her at Rykertis president of MetaStrategies,a Toronto-based consulting firm, and co-author of Working Together Online, a book designed to foster the skills of online facilitation and engagement. She began her career as a social worker interested in community development. She is a long-time student and practitioner of complexity science with a theoretical and practical knowledge of social networks and years of experience helping organizations and community groups use the unique dynamics of the online world to work toward their goals with greater interactivity and collaboration.
