Coach U


If we’re lucky enough, extraordinary individuals come across our paths who leave an indelible mark on how we see ourselves and the world around us. They ignite something within us that inspires us to do more, and more importantly, be more. They help us see new potential within ourselves and our situations that give us the desire and courage to play bigger and go farther than we ever imagined. These extraordinary individuals are The Evolutionaries, and twice each month you will meet them here.

Please join us as we explore the unique contributions and personal journeys of these thought leaders in human potential.

Author and creator of Open Space TechnologyThe Practice of Peace and his last book, Wave Rider: Leadership for High Performance in a Self-Organizing World, Harrison Owen has explored the ways in which the powers of self-organization might lead us to peace and greater prosperity — if we will only cooperate.

Along the way, Harrison has explored the nature of leadership, the evolution of consciousness in organizations, Organization Transformation, the power of myth and culture — and of course, Open Space Technology - a methodological tool that enables self-organizing groups of all sizes to deal with hugely complex issues in a very short period of time. Harrison draws from his decades of experience with corporate and government leaders to illustrate his points in this podcast. To find a selection of his books and papers, you can click here to access them.
