My Photo

David's Portfolio

  •  HBR "75 Years of Management Ideas & Practice"
    I selected the following large Storymap's as representative examples of my information design work at The Grove where I was a lead designer on the project. Each of them were critical in moving us to another level of confidence and excitement about this big picture way of working. What these photos do not show, of course, is the rich process of facilitated design meetings that we led as a way of generating this material.

My Strategic Visioning Collaborators

  • RachelSmith
    I've included this photo album of some of the people in The Grove's associate network that use our facilitation and Strategic Visioning methods integrally in their work. They are my teachers and I theirs. Collaboration networks are behind most truly innovative, robust methodologies, and our is no exception. Claiming credit as an individual would be like a tree claiming credit for the forest. If you aren't here and know that you should be, send me you picture and a writeup and I'll post it.

Partners for Change Model

  • Sustainabilityplayersmap
    These are two supportive visuals for a Partners for Change model I co-designed with Sissel Waage and Ruth Rominger. It shows how we would bring multiple sustainability researchers and activists together around critical issues and support them to create collaborative efforts in media and tool creation.

Such a meaningful, timely post for me - thank you. Somewhat relatedly is Goulston's book, Just Listen - out later this month


thank-you so much for sharing this part of you. Though I am not experiencing those trials, I feel a sense of kinship.

All my relations

I'm deeply touched by your words, David. I'm well aware of your commitment to community, but this writing gives me a deeper appreciation for your love of Susan... and your commitment to Love. Thanks so much for this intimate and inspiring story!

Sending love to you... Marilyn

Hi David,
I am deeply moved by what you have written. What you described when you said, "The “chores” felt more like tai chi moves or dance steps, moving toward another communication of my love", is how I felt caring for my mother when she was dying. There was a luminescence that comes form being so present in the moment, that is precious.

Your being there for Susan did serve the larger whole.
Love to you.

Nancy White

David - I'm clearly reading your blog after much time has passed on recent posts, so I just want to send love and beams!

What a gift to stumble upon this entry just now. I am so moved by your ever-evolving and deep connection to family, community and spirit. Sending you a big hug and all my love to Susan.
