The transforming capitalism initiative creates conversations with pioneers for a green, regenerative economy that works for 100% of humanity and earth. We intend to convene conversations that serve as a vehicle for an emerging global shift to a different civilizational model which works in ways that are more environmentally sustainable, personally empowering, socially inclusive, culturally creative, and societally transformative.

Global Dialogue Project
This site documents some initial results of an ongoing inquiry–our first attempts to embrace a perspective on leadership and social change that is based on the capacity of humans to illuminate the blind spot. The website includes interviews with twenty-five of today's leading thinkers on knowledge and leadership–inventors, entrepreneurs, scientists, academics. (free pdf downloads). It also offers an initial set of papers, including one that reflects on the themes that emerged in the first round of interviews (co-authored by B. Arthur, J. Day, J. Jaworski, M. Jung, I. Nonaka, O. Scharmer, P. Senge).
