Peter Block in person is authentic, wise, and challenging. He suggests that community exists for the sake of belonging and when people feel belonging it is natural for there to be commitment. So we transform systems through creating a wider sense of belonging and caring for the well-being of the whole. Not identifying those in need and trying to solve their problems for them. In Peter’s words, “We currently have all the capacity, expertise, programs, leaders, regulation and wealth required to create an alternative future…Transformation is linguistic: we change the community by changing the conversation.” What is really worth talking about? Not stories about the past but about the future we want, restoring relatedness and becoming a truly global community. And so we invite you to consider, what can we who are the global Enneagram community create together?

Peter Block is an author, consultant and citizen of Cincinnati, Ohio. His work is about empowerment, stewardship, chosen accountability, and the reconciliation of community. Peter is the author of several best selling books, including Community: The Structure of Belonging, about ways to create workplaces and communities that work for all. They offer an alternative to the patriarchal beliefs that dominate our culture. His work is to bring change into the world through consent and connectedness rather than through mandate and force.
