    Karen spotted this article recently from the New Economics Institute. Here’s how it starts out:

    The critical role for economic theory is no longer simply to explain how the existing system works, but also to explore how the economic system can be changed to become more adaptive and resilient in the face of the challenges of the 21st […]

    This is a very relevant title – IRL. Today, in real life, one of our amazing facilitators, John Fabel had to reluctantly step out from participating in the Resilient Business summit on 11/13. He is bringing another round of capital in for his business Sylvan Cycles – among many other things! Please check out this feature article on his extraordinarily impressive work: http://www.cyclelicio.us/2010/2010-nahbs-interview-john-fabel-of-sylvan-cycles/

    I look forward to learning and sharing what aspects of resiliency are naturally occurring, and what can be acquired. And, as my special interest is families in business, I’d be fascinated to know more about what families do and don’t do to produce more or less resiliency. My guess is that a good deal of it depends on flexibility (ie: trees that bend in a storm are less likely to break), good boundaries (ie: cell walls need to be semi permeable, so good stuff can get through, but not bad), and an ”all for one, one for all” attitude (ie: musketeers had each other’s backs, not stabbing one another)– what do you all think?

      Can you clarify what you mean by ”families in business”?

        yes, glad you’re interested– simply, if you work with your parents, children, siblings, cousins, or any more extended or blended relations you consider family, you may be prone to certain common and predictable shortcomings, including mis-communication, unresolved childhood issues, clashing values (often introduced by in laws), differing risk tolerance, joining for reasons other than your passion, talent, excellent ability to team up with relatives, etc. You could also very well have an outstanding competitive advantage, if you’re in the minority of people who have healthy and professional functioning with family members, shared vision, have each other’s backs, make beautiful music together, and can work on building a company that brings out the best of family and their non family employees–
