The five explorations are areas of human strength, essential for today’s and tomorrow’s world, that need to be drawn out, reinforced, and extended since they are central to the success (or not) of all worthwhile human endeavours, individual or shared. They are varieties of human competence and potential that are present in individual lives and human systems of all types – from small families to medium-sized organisations to global institutions. The five explorations are domains of being and doing that add to life and are about wise work and living well. Although described separately, they do not exist alone and apart from one another. They act together; interweave; require others in order to come into play; and support one another’s emergence. That there are five of them, and that they differ from each other, permits a variety of perspectives to be noticed together, as an easy-to-apply framework.
