UNDERSTANDING DIFFERENCE TO INSPIRE CHANGE

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO THRIVE?

How do we cultivate real vitality in our relationships and work? What does it take to make our organizations and communities simultaneously successful, innovative, and equitable?

In my work organizations and individuals receive support for transforming ineffective, maladaptive, and dehumanizing patterns, cultures and systems to achieve their goals guided by their deepest values.

My work leverages our innate capacities for empathy, creativity, healing, and problem solving to bring functionality and robustness on levels from the internal to the systemic. Rather than trying to make change by shaming and punishing ourselves for past limitations and failings, I offer guidance in creating positive change empowered by empathic connection to what matters most.

Dr. Manning’s manifest expertise, along with the confident application of her skills, is unsurpassed.  I have seen her track, assess and organize myriad and opposing voices and perspectives and usher participants from bedlam into mutually amicable resolutions. It has been a remarkable experience to watch Dr. Manning interact with people of varying levels of education, disparate life experiences and exceedingly intense feelings and, from that chaos, support participant growth from a group of individuals into a team of people who feel heard, respected, supported and even loving toward each other.

When people have a true sense of urgency, they think that action on critical issues is needed now,
not eventually, not when it fits easily into a schedule.  – John Kotter, “A Sense of Urgency”

What knowledge and experience can you gift yourself to create the urgent change you need to thrive?
