Thank you to all who attended 46th Annual RSHI Conference!

If you missed the last session "Axiology in Action Panel & Networking," we don't want you to miss the recommendations that were shared by fellow axiologists! 

→ Book Recommendation: Revolution Against War by Dr. Hartman

→ Frameworks that have an Axiological approach/connection: Reinventing Organizations (a book), Spiral Dynamics, Integral Theory and Vertical Development.

→ Book Recommendation: Karlheinz’ book "Purpose, Meaning and Values"

→ Video Recommendation: Carol Dweck - Growth Mindset

→ Recommendation: Global Economic Ethic - A manifesto, completely congruent to Hartman

We'll leave you, for now, with words from Vera Mefford who wrote this in the chat:

"Great presentations all! What stood out to me is that we are all human becomings - dynamic, not static - we don't want to be catalogued in a box - axiology doesn't do that. Also, Valuation is a higher-level human function than just "thinking" - thinking is part of valuing, as is doing and feeling - they occur simultaneously and are intricately linked....we take them apart for purposes of analysis in a non-judgmental way!"

Attendees will dive deep into axiology through a series of curated on-demand lectures and networking events (9+ hours of high-quality content!). Lectures will be released weekly on Mondays starting August 22nd. The first lecture discussion and networking event is on Wednesday, September 14. Then in a 3-hour live session on Wednesday, October 12, attendees will enjoy a panel of practitioners sharing their perspectives on all things axiology and then additional structured networking and lecture discussion.

For the duration of the experience, we invite you to bring your discussions to our LinkedIn group for further inquiry.
