Maria and I had a great time last week discussing Holonomics with Olivia Parr-Rud, host of Quantum Business Insights, a show which is broadcast each Friday at 12 noon Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica, the number one internet radio channel in the US.
The show goes out this week, Friday 28th August (5pm UK time), and there will also be a podcast for those who are not able to listen in live:
Listen and download the podcast: Holonomics on Quantum Business Insights
Back in May when we first appeared on the show, we introduced Holonomics as our book had just launched, discussing its relevance to strategy, organizational design, change management, innovation, sustainability, human resources, brand management, and communication (listen here).
In this second show we were able to explore a little deeper the inspiration behind the dynamic concept of wholeness in Holonomics, which is of course the philosophy of wholeness conceived by Henri Bortoft, who in the 1960s studied the problem of wholeness in quantum systems under David Bohm.
In the second segment of the show we discuss how to give people in business an experiential sense and intuition of the dynamics of wholeness, and so Maria explains two of our techniques – modelling blindfold with clay and her meditation on starlings.
In the final section of the show we explore the role of universal human values in organisations. This was a great dialogue with Olivia, and we discuss how human values provide the ultimate foundation not just for resilient and sustainable businesses, but also for agile processes, since when human values are present, very little bureaucracy is required.
We hope you enjoy the show, and do please check out the podcast if you are not able to listen in live.
