Recent discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and biology have transformed the way we think of the "orderly universe." But did you know that the "New Science" can also be applied to the way we organize work, people, and our lives? Author Margaret J. Wheatley shows us how our new understanding of science and the meaning of life can lead to a powerful new view of the business world.
"Only because it was required"
Margaret Wheatley proposes that citizens band together with their colleagues and friends to create the solutions for social change, both locally and globally, that are so badly needed. Such change will not come from governments or corporations but from the ageless process of thinking together in conversation. Turning to One Another encourages this process.
In this era of increasingly complex problems and shrinking resources, can we find meaningful and enduring solutions to the challenges we face today as individuals, communities, and nations? Walk Out Walk On, we invite you on a learning journey to seven communities around the world to meet people who have walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities.
"Don't waste your time or money"
Whether on the job or at home, we've all yearned for a way to simplify our lives and become more organized. In A Simpler Way, authors Margaret J. Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers use the latest scientific research to develop new structures to help us become more cooperative, creative, and free. By simplifying our individual worlds, Wheatley and Kellner-Rogers explain that we will inevitably increase our self-assurance, resulting in a continuous cycle of creativity, accomplishment, and learning.
"A simpler way of practicing what you preach"
In this interview, Margaret Wheatley speaks with fierce honesty as she gives us the map of where we are in the emergent culture. She talks about how we are being manipulated to fear one another and to work harder and work faster, and also gives us tools that enliven and reinvigorate us in our work and relationships. She talks about how our brains are shaped by our habits, and how technology and the internet are affecting our brains, social relationships, and workloads.
