Overview

Our lives - and our leadership journeys - tend to follow one of two paths: the "conventional" and the "unconventional." The conventional path is driven by our work cultures - cultures that tend to thrive on action, activity, and results. That's why it's called work. So, when we are at work, we need to be doing something (anything). We also know that our lives are accelerating in terms of increasing complexity, unmanageable aspects of time, escalating expectations, and declining resources. Welcome to the age of anxiety. In the process, we are losing our sense of community and our ability to be fully present for each other when we are needed most. As a result, our work cultures are losing their capacity to create enough gravitational pull to keep the organization "whole." It is no surprise that we are living at the outer edges. Without a connection to a unifying center, we play the smaller game, where vulnerability and anxiety rein. This is not working. The center is not holding. We need to rethink our way forward. That is the ultimate aim of this book — to bring both hope and clarity in defining that pathway forward.
