The Law of Emergent Transforming™
“When one’s comfort zone (individual, group, organization) with ‘the unknown’ is greater than (>) one’s comfort zone of ‘the known’, transformation occurs naturally.”
Curiosity, exploration, imagination, openness, trust, shifts in mental and emotional frameworks, etc., develop and the emergence of newness and novel ‘frameworks’ occur naturally and in real time…
‘Change’ becomes natural.
Through ‘re-framing’ how we ‘see’ things, a shift in how we see ourselves and our worlds occur.
This shift in our feeling and perspectives manifest a difference in what we create, including people, organizations and, well, everything.
I do not use the term ‘transformation’ because it conveys, by definition, the change from one ‘state’ to another describing the conversion of one configuration or expression into another configuration or expression.
I use the term ‘Emergent Transforming™’ because such conveys a continual emergent process of the ebb and flow of continuous emergence, and novel re-forming.
I have been thinking about these concepts since the 1970s and have seen such manifest itself with many people, many places, and in many different situations and times.
Thank you for thoughts, your time and your consideration to this.
