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

83 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 3,487 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

Finding our way : leadership for an uncertain time by Margaret J Wheatley( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Putting a revolutionary thought leader's ideas into practice. Margaret Wheatley is one of the most innovative and influential organizational thinkers of our time. For years, she has written eloquently about humanizing our organizations and helping people work together more effectively and compassionately. She has shown how breakthroughs in chaos theory and quantum physics can enable organizations to function as responsive, self-organizing living systems where creativity and commitment flourish, rather than cold mechanisms of control. Provocative, challenging, at times poetic, and often deeply moving, Finding Our Way touches on all the topics Wheatley has addressed throughout her illustrious career, showing how she has applied the ideas in her books in many different situations. "The pieces presented here," she writes, "represent ten years of work, of how I took the ideas in my books and applied them in practice in many different situations. Everything written here represents my current views on the subjects I write about."--Page 4 of cover

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

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 138 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.

3 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 22 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. "It's almost like we discovered a gift inside ourselves," one Brazilian said, "something that was already there
