This article is follows up on the previous post on communication. The selection below is from David Bohm's On Dialogue.
I believe the new culture that Bohm refers to is being created now and design is the vehicle taking us there. People are empowered to search for alternatives on their own as existing institutional structures dissolve or lose meaning. The emergence of a design culture in organizations of all sizes is enabling people to make sense of the unknown and ultimately create shared meaning among diverse elements or groups. Creating coherence where others see confusion is the leadership challenge of today.
