In order to rise to the increasingly complex challenges that we, as humans, face in today’s day and age, we must all work to cultivate a sense of pluralism. In other words, we must recognize that our way of seeing the world is but one of many.
A pluralistic network, then, is one made up of individuals who reflect and embrace the diversity of the world. Pluralistic individuals see the figurative “borders” between countries and communities not as uncrossable boundaries, but as places where we can meet halfway, so to speak. By choosing to participate in pluralistic networks, we can begin to define and accomplish a shared mission that we otherwise would not be able to accomplish on our own.
Whether we’re at work, at play, or at home, we are unavoidably connected to people from all over the world. In organizations large and small, project teams are becoming increasingly virtual, made up of people in different places, from different cultural and professional backgrounds, and with different value systems. To flourish (let alone survive) in our new world requires that we develop the necessary skills for working well with others. Our mission is to help people and teams learn these skills.
To achieve this mission, we at Pluralistic Networks have developed (and continue to develop) a number of engaging, research-backed educational experiences that enable people to work better together to co-create the future they want to see.
