- encourage and inspire organizational leadership to generate dignity through their management processes and practices; and,
- enliven teaching and learning initiatives in the classroom & inside organizations related to dignity and well-being.

In our Necessary Conversation Format the International Humanistic Management Association invites
you to join a conversation with David Korten on:
From a Theory of the Firm to a Theory of a Community.
Short conversation teaser:
Two things happened in the late 20th century. 1) Humans became a truly interdependent global species with an increasingly seamless web of communication. And (2) we reached and exceeded Earth’s environmental limits. This creates an organizational challenge of a scale and complexity beyond any humans have previously faced. Success requires that we organize globally in a way that is exquisitely locally adaptive. It is an organizational challenge beyond any humans have previously experienced. We currently respond to the challenge using the Theory of the Firm, which is extremely simplistic, even naïve, in both its structure and assumption. We are in urgent need of a Theory of the Community to guide us in managing this complexity. It must be based on reality and reflect the complexity of living systems.
