The US Academy of Professional Dialogue

Join us in a participative webinar with

Sandra Janoff

Bringing Differentiation and Integration to Large Complex Systems

25th June ’21, 1pm – 3pm ET

Sandra Janoff, PhD co-developed the principle-based methodology called Future Search: Getting the “whole system” focusing on the future and creating values-based action strategies. Future Search enables discovery of a shared picture based on the experience of all those present. Sandra has worked in more than 45 countries on complex economic and social issues. She has a deep commitment to creating conditions that enable people to
move from fragmentation to wholeness.

Sandra’s work includes: UNICEF’s Finding a future for the Children of Southern Sudan during the North/South Sudanese civil war, resulting in demobilizing 2500 child soldiers; Preventing Child Abuse in Schools across Uganda to address violent acts against children; Creating a more welcoming Europe for people on the move with the Church of Sweden, Creating a strategic future for four State Departments of Corrections: Nebraska, Washington State, Massachusetts and Virginia. One evolution was addressing the issue of gangs in prison.

Sandra, Director of Future Search Network, is co-author of Future Search: An Action Guide to Finding Common Ground (Berrett-Koehler, 3rd ed, 2010), Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There! Ten Principles for Leading Meetings that Matter (Berrett-Koehler, 2007) and Lead More, Control Less (Berrett-Koehler, 2015).

Sandra was honored with the OD Network’s 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award. Sandra has a PhD in psychology. Her work with individuals, groups and large complex systems has always been aligned with David Bohm’s philosophy of reality as a seamless whole.

During the webinar your cohosts, Nancy Dixon and Linda Ellinor, will interview Sandra to provide an overview of her thinking. We will then move participants into small groups for reflection on Sandra’s interview and how her experience has meaning in our lives and work with dialogue. To close our time we will come back together with questions and reflections from our small groups.
