The deToqueville hypothesis that “democracy eventually prevails in all spheres of human activity” was at one time considered to be not only unquestionably true but the ‘gold ring’ or pinnacle of human endeavor. In this century, even as it appears that democracy in its present form in the US cannot address the growing nature and numbers of complex issues, new systems of governance are evolving. Organizations are deliberately pushing their edges and leveraging shifts toward more generative ‘systems of governance’ that broaden the constructs of inclusivity, deeper unity of purpose, imagination, engagement, participation politically and economically within foundations of respect, care and well-being for their own constituencies and the broader context. The models evolving to construct new social realities and to increase organizational capacity move well beyond the political as distribution of power into the relational, economic and higher order realms. As organizations develop their own meaningful intentionally constructed reality, transformational effects can be seen in the expanding capacities to apply imaginative intelligence for and by collaboration, deep connection, consensus, and engagement with higher order meaning and values.
