IRDI Wisdom Council (IWC)
IWC = Solving Complex Problems by evoking Collective Intelligence.
In an increasingly complex, dynamic, interdependent and unpredictable world, it is no longer possible for one person to figure it all out.
When faced with complex decisions, we need a diversity of perspectives, co-creation and collaboration.
Modelled after old native wisdom cultures, we install an IRDI Wisdom Council (IWC) as tool for developing enlightened communities and inspired organizations in general and for IRDI in particular.
The IWC is a tool for enhancing collective intelligence of its members in favor for the IRDI community.
The main task of the members of the IWC will be to guard the purpose and boundaries of IRDI.
The IRDI Wisdom Council is a way to facilitate IRDI to become more informed, competent, creative and collaborative, and to address key issues wisely, reach unanimous conclusions, and speak with one voice. The task of the IWC is ongoing, so it structurally affects the strategic thinking and deciding process of IRDI.
The IWC adds a creative whole-system conversation to grow and evolve IRDI wisely.
In analogy to the wisdom cultures: the IWC is a group of wise elders functioning as servant leaders/advisers for IRDI.
