Call for Papers

Creativity, consciousness and leadership:
Coronavirus and beyond

Dear readers and colleagues,

I hope this message finds you well in these difficult times. This issue was originally planned for May and was going to be themed around the intersection of creativity, consciousness and leadership. We are now aiming for a July/August multi-release issue that brings coronavirus into the equation.

So, I ask you, how do we ‘do leadership’ in a pandemic? How is humanity to adapt to this new post-normal, VUCA, wicked, and complex reality that we find ourselves in? Coronavirus is only the beginning of an increasing cascade of complex, interlocking, existential threats to life as we know it. Is this an evolutionary moment of punctuated equilibrium, where humanity as a whole evolves from the cocoon we are in? Will the imaginal cells unite and be heard, calling in a new way of being and relating? Or is this the beginning of the next dark ages?

Please send your submissions to General submission requirements can be found here. We will be accepting papers for the first release until July 15th, 2020, and August 15th for the second.

Many Blessings,

Eric & Natasha
