In her TEDxJaffa talk, Tova Averbuch explores the at-times contentious relationship between self and whole and proposes a form for resolution.
Tova has been an Organization Development consultant for 30 years, teaching in the graduate program of Tel Aviv University's business school. She is a facilitator and host of generative group meetings, applying methodologies and perspectives that enable and promote bottom up, cross boundaries and self-organizing processes, to create conditions for the emergence of collective new wisdom and new action in business and in socio-political life in Israel. Born in Poland, Tova emigrated to Israel in 1957 and is committed to promoting and exploring creative dialogue between polarized groups in the Israeli society and between 'center' and 'edge' in human systems.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
