From Ego-system to Eco-system Economies

Massive congratulations to Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer of the Presencing Institute on the release of their new book: Leading from the Emerging Future: From Ego-system to Eco-system Economies ! A brief overview:

“We live in a moment of disruption, death – and rebirth. What’s dying is an old civilization and mindset of maximum “me” – maximum material consumption, bigger is better, and special-interest-group-driven decision-making that has led us into a state of organized irresponsibility, collectively creating results that nobody wants.

What’s being born is less clear but in no way less significant. It’s something that we can feel in many places across planet earth… It’s a future that requires us to tap into a deeper level of our humanity, of who we really are, and who we want to be as a society. It is a future that we can sense, feel, and actualize by shifting the inner place from which we operate…

It is a shift from an ego-system awareness that cares about the well-being of me to an eco-system awareness that cares about the well-being of all, including myself…”

“The book applies Theory U to our current moment, the transformation of society, capitalism and self. If you want to read more, and if you would like to support the ideas and the new economic framework that this book suggests, check it out on Amazon.
