Nature has its own gestation rate. How to become a better steward leader.

Our human constructed world says we have dominion. We are taught that we can push, drive, ram through. On our time line. As we see fit. Ignoring everything but the schedule. 

There is a place for this. An event requires co-ordination to bring it to life on time. 

Too often though, as we are birthing a project or enterprise that is aligned with the laws inherent in nature, a Syntropic Enterprise, the impulse to push, force, ram through, is our egoic desire to control, to impose. It might be coming from fear. Scarcity. Lack of trust. Or just sheer bloody mindedness.

The art of stewarding a beautiful business, a Syntropic Enterprise, to life, is to know the difference.

To understand Natures gestation. To push when pushing is the need, and to hold…hold…hold…sometimes for months, or years….until the time is right.

It is difficult, beautiful, honouring work. Best done with a team of fellow stewards able to keep you steady when the urge to push is strong.

Nature has its own gestation. Leaning to tune to its frequency is to learn advanced leadership. To become a better steward.

Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans.

She has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today.
