Northwest Regional Facilitators and Washington State University presents
Inviting Leadership: Finding Our Role in Resilient Communities with Robert Theobald and Margaret Wheatley
A Live Satellite Videoconference Series beginning on Friday, January 22* 10:00am-1:00pm Pacific Time
The first program in this series of three offers an opportunity for interactive dialogue with world-renowned futurist and socioeconomist, Robert Theobald, and noted Y2K commentator and professor of management, Margaret Wheatley.
Join them to talk about new forms of leadership for a changing reality. The recent financial crisis, global warming, and Y2K are evidence of the instability and failure of our current systems.
Theobald and Wheatley will talk about the need for new ways of relating as individuals and communities. Steps are already being taken to create this new reality-"Resilient Communities" in part of this process.
Explore the meaning of leadership, resilience, and community with us. Also learn more about what you can do to effect heightened resiliency in your community.
About the Speakers
Robert Theobald works with groups and organizations which recognize that directions, priorities and goals have to change as society moves out of the industrial era into radically different conditions.
Author of several books, his most recent is "Reworking Success" which was recommended by "Conversations with God" author Neale Donald Walsch as one of eight books everyone should read.
Meg Wheatley is the author of "Leadership and the New Science" and "The Simpler Way", an associate professor of management at Brigham Young University and a noted Y2K commentator.
Who Should Participate
The intended audience for this program includes, but is not limited to, the following community members: educators, clergy, elected and appointed officials, business owners, economic development practitioners, tribal leaders, non-profit directors, community organization officers, and community volunteers.
This is a great time to begin thinking about resiliency while living the edge of chaos. Great changes can take place if we accept the fear, transforming it into positive thoughts, actions, and goals for a better tomorrow.
* A second program is scheduled to air April 8, 1999 and a third program on May 27, 1999.

Didn't Ms. Wheatley have some of the fairly recent chaos theory application to businesses???
Or I could be deluded.

Chuck, Excerpt from the Cape Cod Institute's 20th Anniversary Catalog:
,br> I believe our entire approach to change is based on a flawed belief: that organizations (and people) are machines. Yet we are surrounded by great teachers, living systems that change continuously. These self-organizing systems are capable of adapting, learning, changing. They are capable of creating structures, goals, measures, teams, and leaders as they engage in changing.
