Sean Andrew

Host and Learning and practice partner at the School of System Change and Forum for the Future



Sean is brought into his work through the potential of dialogue and unearthing ways of organizing that support connection, learning, and action. His practice focuses on designing, hosting, and facilitating transformative conflict, action-inquiry, nature-based culture regeneration and collaborative governance processes that are in service of people working on their most complex insidious questions.

His experiences range from working with community-based organizations and the public sector to find new ways to organize and collaborate, playing the role of an intermediary across and between spheres of government to develop learning networks and accompanying people in civil society and business to cultivate new ways of thinking, acting, relating and ultimately being that embrace and embody complex living systems.

Through a relationship and principles-based approach, he’s continuously exploring different perspectives and possibilities that guide us into deepening and expanding our individual and collective worldviews, creating questions that incite imaginative feasible action and together deciding what our next most graceful step might be as a present expression and seed for the future world we yearn to work, play and live into.

Acknowledging some of the communities that have shaped Sean the most: 8 Shields; The Art of Hosting; Organization Unbound; The Presencing Institute; Deep Democracy; Human Systems Dynamics Institute; and all those they were built on.

At the School of System Change

Sean brings ways for us to cultivate the inner conditions and ways of relating that enable us to embrace both connection and conflict as we collaboratively inquire and actualize coherence and change.

I feel change is most possible when we can notice, heal and transform patterns in ourselves, our relationships, and our structures by working with the similarities, differences, and connections within, between and around us.
