Institutions of all sorts are facing profound change today, with complexity increasing at a speed and intensity we’ve never experienced before. Jaworski came to realize that traditional analytical leadership app

Chapter 30 summarizes the original intent of this work, started with Synchronicity. Six steps outlining the structure of knowledge creation in the deeper sense:

1. Solitary Intimations Arise
2. Emergence of Heuristic Passion Driven by Universal Intent
3. Surrender and Sense of Service
4. Indwelling as a Dynamic Force of Comprehension
5. Retreat and Sudden Illumination: The Gift of Grace
6. Testing and Verification

Jaworski mentions his departure from Otto's approach to the U process, focusing on the bo

A book with some interesting and unusual ideas about intuition and seeking and receiving deep internal knowledge from what the author refers to as "the source". Quite thought provoking. Interesting to read some of the science that seems to intersect with spiritual ideas.

I was honored to be a contributor to Berrett-Koehler's final review process for Jaworski's The Source.
The beginning hits like a zinger. “What is the Source of the entrepreneurial impulse?

Regardless of point of view, goal, business, personal spiritual--at the heart of all we long for is th

I’m glad I read it. I didn’t agree with a lot of it. The author seems to be making a pitch for businesses to buy his program. That is, in and of itself, not a big sin for an author. It seems like an awful lot of pop psychology dressed up as zen business practice. He argues that his point is deeply rooted in science as well. His pitch is certainly to business people - and while he dresses it up in terms of individual enlightenment - it reads like a “how to succeed at business” book. I did not fin ...more

Having read Synchronicity some years ago I was excited to continue the journey with Joseph in his latest offering Source. In the beginning I found the book disappointing, the first few chapters covered a series of meetings and thoughts without substance. But by the end, I was enlightened. This book has rewired me, it has given me insight and deeper connections to practices I have pondered for years in my work. I now have confidence the path I have followed is consistent with the nature of who we ...more
