LEADING THE WAY: BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE with Peter Senge and Margaret Wheatley 11 to 12 November 2010 Calgary, Alberta, Canada Receive the latest insights from 2 internationally renowned leaders in the areas of social, environmental and organizational sustainability. CONFERENCE GOALS/BENEFITS • Join with many sectors (corporate, political, not-for-profit, health care and education) to explore more collaborative, interdependent, global-centric ways of thinking about critical issues and developing long-term, sustainable, more profitable solutions. • Be on the cutting edge of sustainable practices in order to survive, increase profits and establish a reputation as a leader in your field. • See your organization as a dynamic system in process which requires a long-term focus, rather than relying on short-term solutions which often lead to significant long-term costs. • Participate in constructive discussions inspired by stories of successful organizations that are already leading the way in collaborative, sustainable practices. • Learn how concerned individuals can create “networks of influence” that enable large numbers of interested people to participate in bringing about sustainable practices. SPEAKERS Peter Senge is described by the Journal of Business Strategy as a “strategist of the century, ...one of 24 men and women who have had the greatest impact in the way we conduct business today”. His earlier book, The Fifth Discipline, introduced the concept of the learning organization. His recent co-authored book, The Necessary Revolution: Working Together to Create a Sustainable World, expands on this concept as it explains the need for corporations to see themselves as part of a world-wide-web of influences that must adopt a larger, more inter-dependent perspective to remain sustainable. See: http://www.solonline.org Margaret Wheatley’s, multi-award-winning book, Leadership and the New Science, established a fundamentally new approach to how we think about organizations, and was voted a “top ten business book of all time”. She is a co-founder of the Berkana Institute, a charitable global foundation that supports the development of local leaders in over 40 countries to foster societies that tap and evoke the best of human capability. Her two recent highly acclaimed books are Turning to One Another: Simple Conversations to Restore Hope to the Future and Perseverance. http://www.margaretwheatley.com Enquiries: admin@spiritualdirections.com
