Margaret Wheatley on leadership and Warriors for the Human Spirit

...tion occurs. And that requires dedication. It requires commitment, it requires community. And that's why I created Warriors for the Human Spirit as a training programme which requires real dedication and diligence and a strong community, because being a leader these days is quite terrible. Even if, I mean, ...more
.... So to be a warrior for the human spirit means that you're willing to train, you're willing to train in a serious way, just as you would if you were training on a musical instrument, if you were training at the gym - but you're training your mind, and your heart, your heart-mind. So, you know, in, in Sansk...more

I am deeply, deeply grateful that at the end of my very long career to have this, and find the people who really want to ser...more

And it requires courage because no one's gonna sit up and say, 'oh, you're the hope of the future?' No, they're gonna say, 'What are you doing? You'...more

Bill Fischer and Simone Cicero on Haier and the entrepreneurial organisation

Buurtzorg and the power of self-managed teams of nurses

Peter Koenig on source, money and consciousness

It is a paradigm shift and it needs to be, in a sense, this is what we're doing with the source work, we're in training, that we're helping this form of collaboration to emerge.
