Circulations

Reflections from the student forum at Capra Course:

Wellbeing as a network of diverse resources & a circulation of resources. Circulation is important part!

RE organisations, I’m thinking lately about organisations as communities, where community is a network of diverse relationships indeed. I also wonder, how this systemic view can be applied in business education, that is, starting with an idea that a business is a community, always changing, fuelled by (diverse) relationships. (This almost goes the opposite to traditional (static) approach of “business strategy”).

In both of these areas, wellbeing of our bodies/minds/spirits and wellbeing of organisations, what seems to be common is circulation of resources, a flow of interactions. When I started learning about systems thinking this year, I observed that the main idea about systems is indeed interactions (links), rather than parts (topics). … Here, valuing conversations, too. Because every interaction disturbs the network in an unexpected way!
