ABOUT THE FISHBOWL STRUCTURE

Innovation requires an experiential setting. So we designed the Summit to be immersive and engaging. Through a series of developmental “fishbowls”, each participating business will engage in a discovery process at the Summit. During the “plenary fishbowl” we will feature three businesses on stage, working with Carol Sanford to apply the 7 First Principle of Regeneration to each business. All Summit participants will then assess their own progress towards regeneration. Then, we’ll break out into smaller fishbowl sessions—one in each of the six value-adding business streams.

FISHBOWLS WILL FOCUS ON SIX ESSENTIAL VALUE-ADDING BUSINESS STREAMS:

MATERIAL VALUE-ADDING BUSINESS STREAMS:

1. FOODING – Businesses that nourish life, e.g. agriculture, restaurants, food service, food innovation, nutrition.
2. SHELTERING – Businesses that enable transitions across space and time, e.g. planners, designers, builders, ecologists, forest products, remediation, restoration, hotels, workspaces.
3. TRANSACTING – Businesses that enable boundary crossing through systemizing partnering and exchanges, e.g. investing, energy, crowd sourcing.
SPIRIT LIFTING VALUE-ADDING BUSINESS STREAMS

4. ADORNING – Businesses that signify belonging and identity, e.g. art, jewelry, decorating, body as art, cosmetics, garden design, match-making.
5. RECREATING – Businesses that promote wellness and reconnection to personal meaning, e.g. health, yoga, eco-tourism.
6. COMMUNING – Businesses that connect and harmonize humans and evoke spirit, e.g. sacred ecology experiences, spiritual tourism, regenerative schools.

THE FISHBOWL: A LEARNING STRATEGY

We invite business who want to learn from experience to use the “fishbowl” engagement process, proven to be highly effective. The audience holds their own business, project, or product in mind as we pose questions and discover systemic ways of thinking.

This method is experiential, even for observers. The “fishbowl” heightens attention and invites a shift in perspective through an authentic socratic process.

We have 40 years of experience in engaging businesses in this interactive discovery process, innovating in real time. Every fishbowl is different. Every fishbowl is powerful. Every fishbowl awakens creativity. Choose to step into the center.
