Leadership in the age of complexity: from hero to host

3 May

Margaret Wheatley has been writing about leadership in connection with complexity with some time now, and I am delighted that she sees a connection between working with a complex world and hosting.  I just came across her new article (co-authored by Deborah Frieze) as the featured article at the Berkana Institute website – Leadership in the age of complexity: from hero to host.  I particularly like the way she looks at why we continue to yearn for heroes – even if we know that it’s more or less a forelorn hope. 

Read the article at http://berkana.org/berkana_articles/leadership-in-the-age-of-complexity/, or download the pdf from http://berkana.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/New_Leadership-in-the-Age-of-Complexity.pdf.
