Webinar: Who do we choose to be? Facing Reality, Claiming Leadership, Restoring Sanity in a Turbulent World

December 11, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:15pm

In this time as things fall apart, and in the midst of increasing fear and turmoil, Margaret Wheatley summons us to become leaders and reclaim leadership as a noble profession that creates possibility and humaneness.

We need leaders in all sectors of society who put service over self-interest, aspire to be steadfast and trustworthy through crises and failures, and commit to staying present for the people and causes they care about. We need leaders who recognize what harm is being done to people and planet through practices that dominate, ignore, abuse, and suppress the human spirit. 

Because of these needs, coaches play a paramount role in supporting leaders to step forward and hold their ground in support of the human spirit. 

Presenter: Margaret Wheatley
Host: Jeff Hull

This webinar is open to the public.


Margaret (Meg) Wheatley began caring about the world’s peoples in 1966, as a Peace Corps volunteer in post-war Korea. In many different roles– speaker, teacher, consultant, advisor, formal leader–her work has deepened into an unshakable conviction that leaders must learn how to invoke people’s inherent generosity, creativity and need for community. As this world tears us apart, sane leadership on behalf of the human spirit is the only way forward. 

She is co-founder and president of The Berkana Institute, (www.berkana.org), an organizational consultant since 1973, a global citizen since her youth, and a prolific writer. She has authored nine books, including the classic Leadership and the New Science. She has been honored for her ground-breaking work by many professional associations, universities and organizations. Her work now focuses exclusively on developing leaders as spiritual warriors.
