ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the book "Presence : Human Purpose and the Field of the Future," by Peter M. Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers. One of the book's themes is the idea of crystallizing intent--disciplining oneself to retreat and reflect, to listen to the moment. The author says that is something he has done over and over again in his own work. It was essential a few years ago when the author started thinking about how corporations could create a more sustainable future.
