The Poet & The Blacksmith
Work is an integral part of life. Organizations are vital spaces where value is created – both for individuals, the organization as a whole, and our broader communities. Work provides a space for the development of meaning; and our daily practice within our organizations powers both personal and organizational development.
The Poet + The Blacksmith is being designed as a vehicle to work with individuals, groups and organizations to help people better realize their personal purpose and meaning and it's relationship to their work.
Our site is still in beta but will launch soon.
The 'Future Families' Project
The shape and nature of the American Family is shifting and changing. There is huge risk, however, in that many of our society’s systems, processes and institutional ways of thinking are predicated – in many senses – on a mythical conception of family that more than likely never really existed. The risk becomes concrete when our families engage with these systems, processes and ways of thinking which then seek to limit their dynamic expression as a family. This need not be the case. But, in order for this shift to occur, we need to work to ensure that our society’s systems, processes and ways of thinking are matched to the reality of the modern American family – in all it’s diverse and multi-faceted nature.
