Monica Sharma draws on more than twenty years of working for the United Nations to present a radical new approach to transformational leadership, one that creates systems of change where everyone can engage--not just analysts and policy makers. Demonstrating that we all can be architects of a new humanity, Sharma demystifies policy-making, planning, and implementation so that everyone can play an informed and strategic part in eradicating the world's most intractable problems. Using real life examples from around the world, she shows how our innate characteristics of universal compassion, equity impulse, and human capability can create new patterns that effectively address major challenges such as gross inequality, unbridled hate, conflicts based on social identity, and the never-enough mindset of greed. Written in a straight-forward, accessible style, this book outlines a path-breaking paradigm shift that is already generating equitable and sustainable results across the globe. Radical Transformational Leadership
describes how we can source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness, and courage. Everyone has the potential to be a leader--a person who creates a new future--through actions in society, at home, and at work. This book lays out a detailed plan for unleashing our human potential to create a new future through strategic action.
