In today’s world, organizations, communities, and even societies struggle to identify shared opportunities and successfully negotiate sustained outcomes. Often the challenges appear too complex and insurmountably frustrating. It isn’t all that hard to figure out why these challenges remain unsolved as communities and organizations default toward slow, expensive, and adversarial approaches resulting in a diminished probability of reaching a good outcome.
