Strategic conversations are thoughtfully initiated and/or designed conversations exploring powerful questions that matter in search of breakthroughs.

Breakthroughs move things from a stuck place to a broader or improved realm of functioning. We can create and experience breakthroughs in awareness, in understanding, in relationship, in possibility, and more.

Evolutionary breakthroughs move things towards greater wholeness, cooperation, generative inclusion of diversity, service to Life, etc.

In an evolutionary strategic conversation, we bring certain people (or kinds of people) together in the expectation that real evolutionary breakthroughs might happen if those particular people together address those particular questions in a particular productive way.
