Enough of the imbalance that is destroying our democracies, our planet, and ourselves. We require a form of radical renewal unprecedented in the human experience.
We have to leave behind the divisive politics of left versus right, to realize that a healthy society balances a public sector of respected governments with a private sector of responsible businesses and a plural sector of robust communities.

CoachingOurselves offers free, interactive public events to engage you in Rebalancing Society. Change begins not with “them” but with each of us and all of us. We need to collectively create constructive practices in the organizations where we work and the communities where we live.
This is an incredible opportunity to meet others from around the world, share ideas, and generate energy for action. While our challenges are many, the possibilities are endless, so let’s get started.
These are free (2hr+) interactive events on Zoom with Henry Mintzberg. Meet participants from around the world and reflect on what you can do, individually and together, to move us towards balance. Please register for the next free event:
How does a Rebalancing Society event work?
After a brief introduction and group orientation, you will spend 90 minutes with a small group of participants (4-5) from around the globe in a Zoom breakout room. We provide groups with a CoachingOurselves discussion guide on Rebalancing Society written by Henry Mintzberg introducing Henry’s model of how to create change across five levels of society, from personal to planet.
Henry joins for the latter part of the session to continue the discussion and reflections with the larger group. After the session our team analyzes the ideas generated. We compare the ideas generated with those generated during previous sessions and share these insights with participants.
Below: The Google Jamboard introduction page of people who participated in the August, 2020 Rebalancing Society event. This event was sponsored by N2NHub and Corporate Rebels, and was in support of the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation in Vietnam. This charitable foundation rescues children from sex trafficking, forced labor, and slavery and then provides shelter, education and employment.
We look forward to seeing you at the next event. Please be sure to share this with any friends or colleagues who may be interested. Let’s start a movement!
