Embodying trans-local presence
Description: Calling for a life style of awareness of one's responsibilities as a regional man. The effect is a general mobilizing of regional participation as others adopt that style which would contribute to transforming social interaction.
Context: An integral part of transforming social interaction to enable the individual to display his particular gifts; and to breath new life into individual and group cultural encounters within the community.
Implementation: Tactics include: consensus power to demonstrate consensus government in the family and the community at all levels; feedback utilization to show use of follow-up data to enhance consensus participation; research techniques to apply new methodologies such as gridding as a manifestation of style in research; occupational relatedness to demonstrate that vocation has meaning beyond one's own limited area; and tool application to demonstrate use of techniques such as model-building, brain-storming and gestalting that can enable translocal presence. An example is a family that learns the use of consensus within its own structures and that individually enacts that same style wherever possible in the larger community.
