Turning crisis into opportunity – that's what leaders do. These days, that's what we all must do. None of the crucial transformations of our time can happen effectively without overcoming the fundamental dysfunction of 20th century economics. To achieve that, we need to work fast, smart, and wisely, and 21st century leaders don't lead alone.
We invite you to 2nd Money & Life at the Whidbey Institute, a diverse community of practice from various sectors including commerce, finance, activism and academia. This year's gathering will build upon the innovative and inspiring three-day event of June 2012, and take us further in strengthening the effectiveness of our leadership, whether we're forging the way for nation, industry, community, or household.
A socially and environmentally sustainable economy will take the work of millions of ordinary people taking extraordinary steps. What sustains one's ability to continually step out and forge ahead? We will explore this question, sharing case studies from our own lives and engaging in activities that cultivate some of the crucial aspects of adaptive leadership: Discernment, self-awareness, simultaneous contemplation and action, building alliances, and commitment for the long haul. And we'll have fun doing it!
The convening will be facilitated by Sharon Daloz Parks, principal of Leadership for the New Commons, and author of Leadership Can Be Taught: A Bold Approach for a Complex World, and Rose Hughes, a 25 year veteran of campaigns for economic justice, President of New Road Map Foundation, and Coordinator of Oikocredit NW, a member of the international financing cooperative Oikocredit.
