Presence by Peter Senge et al, is a series of conversations between four thoughtful, experienced intellectuals who are daring to do the impossible: to introduce a theory of individual and organization change that bridges the material and spiritual planes.
Mark Gerzon wrote a comprehensive book review of Presence - Human Purpose and the Field of the Future and in it he refers to the model which underscores Skilful Action work. In paragraph 13-15 he says:
"But a conversation is not an essay. If you want a clear, cogent essay on the subject, there are other far more succinct introductions to this subject. One of countless examples is the work of Peter and Penny Fenner, who blend the best of leading-edge management science with the contemplative psychology of Asia's timeless wisdom traditions." In their essay Leadership and Wellbeing, they describe the elusive East-West synergy in less than a dozen pages. In fact, their eight-word summary (left column, Western; right column, Eastern) reads like a Zen koan:
In a single essay, which is shorter than the introduction alone in Presence, the Fenners crystallize many of the key ideas of this field and communicate them without jargon or neologisms.
