The importance of Presence

Pausing to notice your environment and being in the moment are essential for awareness and reflection. In the book ‘Presence’ by Senge, Scharmer, Jaworkski and Flowers, the authors take this it to a whole new level.

They focus on profound change and how collective change works. How do you turn around from a state of ‘downloading’ in thinking and acting towards a state of ‘presencing’, consciously experiencing the here and now and noticing what is possible?

The book is based on interviews with scientists and the journey of discovery of the authors themselves in this process. The book contains genuine examples of business life and personal stories of famous writers like Lao Tse, Goethe, Martin Bubers and Carl Jung.
