We live in a world of entangled social systems (governance, education, health care, business, agriculture, “defense,” media, etc.) Collectively, these systems have us trapped in unsustainable patterns of consumption, strife, unemployment, inequity and environmental degradation. Very few of these systems are designed to be conscious of or accountable for these unsustainable patterns.
We’re at a choice point as a species:
The GALE approach to organizational, regional and city capacity building is designed to bridge from Choice 1 to Choice 2 — to shift from our current Red-Orange-Yellow Zone trajectory to a Green-Blue Zone trajectory. GALE – Generative Action-Learning Expedition – is our name for action-learning infrastructures that enable a given social system (e.g. organization, institution, region, city) to grow its capacity to become consciously self-evolving — to adapt to a changing world in a way that best serves all life.
The GALE approach to organizational learning and change is applicable at all levels of system in ways that support deep metamorphosis — at individual, organizational and regional/city levels.
Our organizations and regions are not designed with the capacity to learn and transform themselves. The GALE approach provides the scaffolding required to grow that capacity and weave it throughout the fabric of today’s social systems.
What is the GALE approach?
GALE is a unique developmental strategy designed to grow the systemic capacity for sustainable learning and change within a system, in a way that continually increases the system’s contribution to the wellbeing of all life.
GlobalGEA’s design of GALE is guided by the following fundamental principles:
GALE can be initiated at any level of system: individual, organizational, city and/or regional:
A typical GALE starts with a GALE Leadership Intensive – an introductory transformational experience designed to equip 18-24 leaders/practitioners to play pioneering roles in shaping and implementing a startup strategy for their system’s transformational journey.
What distinguishes the GALE approach?
The GALE approach can be introduced and evolved within any given region, city and/or organization in a way that —
How might the GALE approach be initiated at an organization, city and/or regional level?
