No Straight Lines: making sense of a non linear world


“Economic transactions and markets have warped perceptions to such a degree that most people fail to see what is important in life, even when it’s right in front of them. Alan Moore‘s ‘No Straight Lines’ offers a vision that is at once more humane, more forward-thinking, and more realistic” – Howard Rheingold


Me – We: innovating the future of work, happiness and play for a human centric world

Humanity gear-shifts when it demands fundamental change to its real world circumstances and this moment in time really does feel like a turning point in our collective approach to the organization of the economy and society as a whole. So what does humanity want, and, how is this aspiration driving systemic change in the world we live in today?

Humanity is demanding an upgrade from all our industrial institutions which are now proven to be inappropriate for our time – seeking to unleash the full creative potential of every human being and in so doing enhances their wellbeing and that of the wider society – from healthcare to education to the workplace, allowing humanity to surge forward united by a common purpose.

So what do organizations look like in a human-centric world – and how do traditional organizations innovate to upgrade themselves to be able to belong to the extraordinary story of human evolution that now points towards a more participatory, cooperative, and regenerative model of our society?
