IN4tuity – public library development
Kenneth Warren passed away suddenly May 21, 2015
(Stephen notes on July 27, 2015)
Because of the passing on of my dear friend, colleague, partner in IN4tuity, Ken Warren, IN4tuity has been subsumed by squareONE:experiential toolmakers. squareONE: experiential toolmakers, aims to support the mission of public libraries, provides experience-based staff development and support for inquiry-based strategic curation, strategic planning and organizational learning. To this end, Stephen has been working with Daniel Slife to further this mission in 2016.
Working in partnership with Kenneth Warren, squareONE formulates a brain trust focused on supporting leadership and visionary goals in public libraries. The I’s Have It We support leadership and ambitious organizational goals by helping build sustainable capacity in organizations. Our approach can be distilled: we use deeply intentional experiential inquiries to help leaders and staff and stakeholders interrogate the core propositional bindings and history of the institution. Then, we work to help the leadership reinvigorate and reanimate, or reconfigure, both the necessary bindings at the core, and build sustainable new initiatives. IN4tuity‘s unique capabilities are the result of joining together Kenneth’s long expertise in daily, practical and humanistic institutional leadership in the public library, with Stephen’s innovative skills in guiding transformative learning. IN4tuity‘s developmental tools are not like those found in normative organizational and leadership development. Their fundamental thrust is directed toward instantiating self-awareness via praxis. Nothing ever gets pulled off any shelf. Everything is purpose-built and fit to address mundane and audacious objectives.
