Holding Change: The Way of Emergent Strategy Facilitation and Mediation

Holding Change: The Way of Emergent Strategy Facilitation and Mediation


In our complex world, facilitation and mediation skills are as important for individuals as they are for organizations. How do we practice them in ways that align with nature, with pleasure, with our best imagining of our future? How do we attend to generating the ease necessary to help us move through the inevitable struggles of life? How do we practice the art of holding others without losing ourselves? Black feminists have answers to those questions that can serve anyone working to create changes in our world, changes great and small; individually, interpersonally, and within our organizations.

Holding Change is about attending to coordination, to conflict, to being humans in right relationship with each other, not as a constant ongoing state, but rather as a magnificent, mysterious, ever-evolving dynamic in which we must involve ourselves, shape ourselves and each other. The majority of the book is sourced from brown’s twenty-plus years of facilitation and mediation work with movement groups.

‚ÄúAdrienne Maree Brown is powerful both as a healer and as a thought leader. Her revelatory work,¬†Holding Change, arrives at the intersection of activism and whole-wellness, at a time when the world needs it most.¬†Holding Change¬†is about improved communication, achieving conflict resolution, and making space for others while still holding one‚Äôs self in high regard. A necessary and mighty tool.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒPatrisse Khan Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter and¬†NYT¬†bestselling author of¬†When they Call You a Terrorist
