LGBTQ+ Health Initiative’s Anti-racism Listening & Learning Series
What is Emergent Strategy? Emergent Strategy is a humble philosophy, a way to acknowledge the real power of change and be in the right relationship to it. It intends to deepen relationships and build trust and political alignment. Emergent strategy practices strengthen imagination and the capacity to think beyond the limitations of socialization – beyond completion, beyond binaries, and beyond linear short-term outcomes. Below is a snapshot of the chapters we will cover:
- Principles of Emergent Strategy
- Elements of emergent strategy
- Fractals: the relationship between small and large
- Intentional Adaptation: how we change
- Interdependence and Decentralization: who we are and how we share
- Nonlinear and interactive: the pace and pathways of change
- Resilience: how we recover and transform
- Creating more possibilities: how we move towards life
- Assess yourself: your emergent strategy journal
- Spells and Practices for emergent strategy
- Tools for emergent strategy facilitation
