Bruce Flye, Graphic Developmentologist

Transformations™ first came alive through the artwork of Bruce Flye.

Bruce Flye: The Garden of Eden

Bruce Flye: The Garden of Eden

One day I asked Bruce if he could draw some avatars of action logics. “What?” …   “What does that even mean??” The first character-images he drew are the same style you see now. It was an amazing moment of creativity. Bruce birthed these characters along with a world in which they continue to live, develop and evolve. They express the logics of life in self-engaging ways that invite interpretive play. This kind of graphic illustration of developmental states and stages is unique, I believe. Susanne Cook-Greuter warns of “the lure of language” to the exclusion of other ways of knowing and being, and invented visual aids to help specialists think about development. Transformations™ integrates short phrases and visual images into coherent memes which invite imagination and serious play. (Bruce is also the artist behind the renowned Leadership Metaphor Explorer™.)
