If we assume, as both the new scientists and ancient wisdom traditions tell us, that all of reality is actually composed of interlocking dynamic energy fields, that life is a continuous process of organising energetic information into form, then what does that mean for the way we need to lead our organisations, be they business, civil society, government, community, or even family systems? To growth, differentiation, and intellect, we need to add stillness, oneness, and intuition. This book is a short beginner's "field guide" on how to perceive, interpret, and enhance the energetic fields of the collective systems that we lead. The illustrations and accompanying text are designed to remind us of the core principles and practices of resonant leadership and energetic stewardship.
Every living system, everything with a boundary and name-from family to community organisation to department to multinational-has an energetic field associated with it that is continually informing what happens in our visible material world. If that field is not well integrated into the organisation, or carries stressed or blocked energy for example, then the relationships in and around the organisation and its performance in the world will suffer. As leaders of organisations, we have the greatest influence on that field. Through our attention and intention we enhance or detract from the quality of that field. It is not something we are generally taught in business schools or on leadership courses, yet it carries huge potential for us to cocreate organisations that inspire people, serve life, and get things done.
This book with its accompanying illustrations of sacred geometry is designed to be something you can carry around with you, to help you reflect on the core principles and practices of resonant leadership and energetic stewardship. The principles are distilled from 30 years of work in the field. Experience them as simplicity the other side of complexity. Allow the words and images on the pages to sink in.
As a leader of organisations himself, Peter Merry invites you to join him on an inquiry into the future of enlightened leadership on our planet today, with these illustrated core principles and practices of resonant leadership and energetic stewardship.
