The Balanced Paradigm:
Model to Create Business, Personal, Societal/Cultural and Planetary Balance
Economic and social inequities, political polarization, climate induced weather events, geo-political conflict as well as 34 other negative impacts in society and in the world - all have one source: the imbalanced centuries' old Mechanistic Paradigm based on polarized thinking and its associated either/or perspective.
We are living in an inflection point in history and are in the process of experiencing the biggest business transition since the Industrial Revolution.
A new model for doing business is needed, one that goes beyond the Mechanistic Business Paradigm and opens up a new age of responsibility and environmentally compatible ways for doing business based on the application of balance and practical wisdom.
A transition is a move from one state or condition to another. We are accustomed to a certain linear progression in our daily lives by experiencing a beginning, middle and an end. For example, you have breakfast when you first get up in the morning, have lunch around noontime and dinner at the end of the day.
In a transition, the sequence becomes totally reversed, since there is an ending followed by a beginning.
Transitions are a time of uncertainty, since the old structural framework no longer works. They also provide the opportunity to replace outdated assumptions and beliefs with wisdom and the time for the rebalancing process to emerge.
There are four pain points impacting businesses today: climate change, societal change for equitability and inclusivity, digitalization of business operations and polarization of attitudes in business, all of which are pushing the paradigm shift at a faster rate and having a huge impact on how business will be done in the “new normal.”
We are transitioning from the Modern Industrial Age, based on fossil fuels, to the birth of a new world of the Age of Balance, which is represented by the middle path that leads to a bright future for you, your family, society and the planet.
The middle path represents a new business and cultural model based on dynamic balance.
The new beginning provides a methodology for a new and better way for you to run your company, so you not only survive, but prosper in a rapidly changing business environment.
The Balanced Business Paradigm provides the dynamic and systemic framework for business, societal/cultural, planetary and personal balance. This is important for good governance, sustainability, equitability, diversity, and inclusivity, as well as prosperity for humanity and the planet.

The importance of the Balanced Business Paradigm’s balanced way of thinking was captured by Albert Einstein when he stated that:
"Humanity is going to need a new way of thinking if humanity is going to survive."
"We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
“If there is anything the world needs, it is wisdom. Without it, I exaggerate not at all in saying that very soon, there may be no world.”
- Robert Sternberg, the former president of the American Psychological Association
