from: The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots

ko- and nu- are the indo-european roots of the words „here“ (ko-) and „now“ (nu-).

Their meaning refers to our teaching method („here and now“ or "case-in-point“) as well as the relevance and urgency of the leadership work. Using the ancient roots reminds us that adaptive work often includes wrestling with values and beliefs deeply embedded in cultural narratives.
