Leadership and the new science : learning about organization from an orderly universe by Margaret J Wheatley( Book )

53 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 2,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Each of us lives and works in organizations designed from Newtonian images of the universe," Margaret Wheatley writes in this groundbreaking book. "Our assumptions come to us from seventeenth-century physics, from Newtonian mechanics. ... But the science has changed. If we are to continue to draw from the sciences to create and manage organizations, then we need to at least ground our work in the science of our times. We need to stop seeking after the universe of the seventeenth century and begin to explore what has become known to us in the twentieth century."" "Wheatley takes the reader on a mind-opening journey into the "new science"--The revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and molecular biology that are changing our understanding of the universe. And she applies these scientific concepts to offer new light on the fundamental issues of organizing work, people, and life, including: how can we find order in a chaotic world?; how is order different than control?; how can we create more participative, open, and adaptive organizations?; how can we reconcile individual autonomy and organizational control?; and what leads to organizational growth and self-renewal instead of decline and death?"--Jacket

Leadership and the new science : discovering order in a chaotic world by Margaret J Wheatley( )

38 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We live in a time of chaos, rich in potential for new possibilities. A new world is being born. We need new ideas, new ways of seeing, and new relationships to help us now. New science - the new discoveries in biology, chaos theory, and quantum physics that are changing our understanding of how the world works - offers this guidance. It describes a world where chaos is natural, where order exists "for free." It displays the intricate webs of cooperation that connect us. It assures us that life seeks order, but uses messes to get there. Leadership and the New Science is the bestselling, most acclaimed, and most influential guide to applying the new science to organizations and management. In it, Wheatley describes how the new science radically alters our understanding of the world, and how it can teach us to live and work well together in these chaotic times. It will teach you how to move with greater certainty and easier grace into the new forms of organizations and communities that are taking shape. You'll learn that: relationships are what matters - even at the subatomic level; life is a vast web of interconnections where cooperation and participation are required; chaos and change are the only route to transformation. In this expanded edition, Wheatley provides examples of how non-linear networks and self-organizing systems are flourishing in the modern world. -- Back cover

So far from home : lost and found in our brave new world by Margaret J Wheatley( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live in a time of increasing extremism and polarization, where the distinction between fact and opinion has been lost. Instant electronic interaction has replaced thoughtful human interaction. Organizations are bloated by bureaucracy and meaningless measures. Those working for positive change are exhausted, ill and heart-sick as their good work is ignored, underfunded or attacked. We need to acknowledge that we're lost in a world far different than we hoped for. We need new maps to navigate our brave new world. In Leadership and the New Science, Wheatley provided encouraging maps for how to design organizations based on living systems' capacity for creativity, change and adaptation. But in the 20 years since its publication she's seen that in spite of our best efforts the world that's emerged is on a destructive trajectory that won't be reversed by our working harder, finding new methods, or forming better networks. But Wheatley has not written a book to increase our despair. Quite the contrary. In the same vein as her bestselling book, Perseverance, her intention is to inspire us to move forward with greater resolve and energy, using maps that won't mislead us. One kind of map shows us where we are now--she offers a penetrating critique of popular culture. But a second kind of map invites us to choose a new role for ourselves as warriors for the human spirit. This map helps us develop the skills we need most--insight, bravery, decency, compassion-- to discover our right work and create meaningful lives in this dark time. Profoundly reflective yet down-to earth--rooted in the day-to-day experiences we all share--So Far From Home is both affirming and provoking, calling us to reexamine our expectations and redefine our role for the work ahead."--

The fine arts of relaxation, concentration & meditation : ancient skills for modern minds by Joel Levey( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the past fifteen years Joel Levey has taught some thirteen thousand people survival skills for mastering the stress of life. He has worked with people from every walk of life, including business, education, health care, sports and the military, and presented here are more than a hundred of the techniques that he has found most effective. He draws from Zen, the humanistic psychotherapies, Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and other tried and proven systems. He shows that it is definitely possible, with even a little knowledge of the fine arts of relaxation, concentration and meditation, to reduce stress, improve relationships and generally enhance the quality of our lives. "For many people," he says, "these techniques are like wish-fulfilling jewels. Used properly and purposefully, they can be extremely effective in helping to develop the latent qualities that you most wish to mature." This is very much a practical and down-to-earth work book. It is full of clear, easy-to-follow instructions and masses of explanation and can support for anyone who is tentative. Everyone can find something in this book that will stimulate and , most of all, help" -- Inside front cover

5 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an era of increasingly complex problems, fewer and fewer resources to address them, and failing solutions. Is it possible to find viable solutions to the challenges we face today as individuals, communities, and nations? This inspiring book takes readers 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. These Walk Outs who Walk On use their ingenuity and caring to figure out how to work with what they have to create what they need. In India, we meet people from Shikshantar, a community that is rejecting the modern culture of money, with its emphasis on self-interest and scarcity, in favor of a gift culture based on generosity and reciprocity. In Zimbabwe, we discover the capacity people have to adapt and invent new ways of surviving and thriving in the face of total systems collapse. Wheatley and Frieze immerse us in these communities that are accomplishing extraordinary things by relying on everyone to be an entrepreneur, a leader, an artist. From Mexico to Greece, from Columbus, Ohio to Johannesburg, South Africa, we discover that every community has within itself the ingenuity, intelligence, and inventiveness to solve the seemingly insolvable.
