A historical shift in the Western scientific-materialistic worldview is occurring. Perhaps the two are connected. Perhaps our institutions and leadership are, by and large, grounded in a way of thinking about the world that is increasingly obsolete and counterproductive. Perhaps that is why they are falling apart.
The new leadership must be grounded in fundamentally new version understandings of how the world works. The 16th-Century Newtonian mechanical view of the Universe, which still guides our thinking, has become increasingly dysfunctional in these times of interdependence and change.
The critical shifts required to guarantee a healthy world for our Children and our Children’s children will not be achieved by doing more of the same.
“The world we have created is a product of our way of thinking,” said Albert Einstein.
Nothing will change in the future without fundamentally new ways of thinking. This is the real work of leadership. And this book is a good place to start.
