    Who Do We Choose to Be? is a book that offers a path for leaders to engage wisely with the destructive dynamics of this time that manifest at every level, from individual to organizational to global. We enter the path by facing reality, wanting to see with clarity and discernment where we are and how we got here. Because of her own studies and experiences, Wheatley has chosen to use the lens of new science to understand where we are and why we ended up here.

    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 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.
