Each year the interest of individuals who dare to lead within their organizations grows our Network, making the short eight years of our existence more relevant to the new conditions we encounter.
Sadly, headlines in the recent months reveal new dependencies within the world economy which are difficult to understand and are causing unprecedented economic disruption. And so we may ask, which institutions and businesses will likely fail in the new environment that the global economy is experiencing? Which will flourish? Are our education systems providing a better understanding of the thinking patterns needed to dissolve the problems we face today?
Consider Abraham Lincoln's admonition...
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves."
or similar sentiments from Albert Einstein...
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
By comparison, would better thinking about thinking bring a change in results?
Would such an awareness bring more progress into view?
And, in what ways could you become more aware of your thinking?
We invite you to explore these and other questions; come and share your vision with fellow leaders, and learn from them. Each year we welcome a community of leaders who come together to learn, to better understand, and to discover; leaving rejuvenated to bring forth a better world through better thinking.

...OurSpace - Bringing Progress In2 View
Each month, we join with Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne's Enterprise Thinking Network to invite you to participate in a conference call with esteemed Thought Leaders and meet them mind-to-mind. Once a year, we invite you to meet such Thought Leaders and fellow InThinkers; and meet them both mind-to-mind and face-to-face. Soon, it will be time to convene in Los Angeles.
Through our planning efforts, we selected a Forum theme which is inspired by the efforts of our members to engage in thinking transformations. This year we celebrate the ability of our members to continue to transform their respective organizations from a prevailing world view of "My Space" to an ever-needed view of "OurSpace."
This year's presentations provide us with ample opportunities to explore the potential for thinking together, learning together, and working together. Barry Bebb
will get our thinking off the ground with his opening keynote to remind us that "Real Progress Requires a Real Transformation." Joel & Michelle Levey
will close with a focus on "mastery, mystery, and mindful leadership." In between, we'll be provoked by Kathy Allen
, Adrian Bass
, Juan Garza
, Steve Haines
, Tracy Huston
, Natalia Mironova
, Sheldon Rovin
, Peter Stonefield
, and Elizabeth Topp
. And, let us not forget a wonderful evening with our musical guests, The Steve Davidson Group
As always, we have scheduled a wide variety of pre- and post-conference seminars and workshops, on topics ranging from Complexity and Program Management to Get In2:Yoga to Psychosynthesis, set two days ahead and two days after the weekend conference, making for six days of mental and physical provocations, designed to maximize transformation so that our future will not just be survival, but thriving. All for an investment of your time, energy, and $400, with a $50 discount for registrations received before Friday, April 10th.
