Radical Transformational Leadership with Dr. Monica Sharma
The Show invites everyone to engage in creating a new reality that is equitable and prosperous. We learn about new ways to source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values of dignity, compassion and fairness; and at the same time, transform unworkable systems and norms in order to solve problems. We will deconstruct fallacies that societies continue to promote related to self and the world around us that leads to complacency and non-action. This is a radical new approach to transformational leadership. Using examples from around the world, we will see how everyone has the potential to be a leader–a person who creates a new future through actions in society, at home, and at work. This program is not useful for those who are satisfied with the world as it is today. This program for people who have questions. It encourages us to question the status quo, ask relevant questions, generate insights and act in order to establish universal equity and dignity. www.radicallytransform.org

Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply? Guest Speaker: Robyn McKeen
Generating results to address homelessness
BEING the leader I have been waiting for
We invite you to a discussion with Robyn McKeen. Robyn McKeen has worked for over twelve years managing social service programs, multi-sector coalitions, and systems change initiatives in the greater San Francisco Bay and Seattle areas. She has held leadership positions and made change in the areas of homelessness and youth development, utilizing the Radical Transformational Leadership approach. Currently, she is a Senior Practitioner or Impact Launch, a collective of social impact practitioners working to support game changing social change initiatives. Robyn is committed to fostering compassion and fairness through all aspects of her work and life.
Robyn will share the results of her work to address homelessness. Community members were divided on whether help should be provided at all, and further divided among advocates about what the solutions should be. By sourcing individuals’ universal values and greatness, identifying systems shifts, and generating alignment and synergy with 150 stakeholders, they created a new coordinated entry system to address the gap between the number of people experiencing homelessness and the available shelter and housing.
Robyn will also share how her approach to social activism has been completely transformed by the principles of Radical Transformational Leadership. She says “I grew up believing that being an activist meant I needed to march in a demonstration, never agreeing or seeing the humanity in my enemies (which was anyone who didn’t agree with me), and crying out angrily at the injustices of the powerful. Now I believe that demonstrations have a specific purpose and place in social change. And there is so much more work to be done. I am an activist because I care about the unnecessary suffering in the world and choose to act. I am an activist when I choose to hold courageous conversations with leadership about what is not working with our policies. I am an activist when I design my projects, editorials to the newspaper, public presentations and grant proposals and reports in a way that sources universal values, shifts systems, and generates results.” The new activism requires us to break the silence of injustice without polarizing and blaming others, by calling out actions that are unacceptable while holding the humanity of everyone.
When applied systematically, Radical Transformational Leadership templates and tools enable us to transform personally in order to generate powerful results that can transcend embedded destructive social norms and systems and create a new future. People have created inequitable systems and with the appropriate tools we, as people, can change them.

BIO: Monica Sharma ‘Development’ of the individual and the collective is being redefined by her, to include the further reaches of the human and cultural capabilities, to discover a deeper balance between humanity and nature, our intellect and emotion, our inner and outer worlds, and to foster its expression through many programmes world-wide in society as well as organizations.
Monica Sharma, trained as a physician and epidemiologist, worked for the United Nations since 1988 for 22 years. She is the author of the book “Radical Transformational Leadership” which has been describes as a path-breaking classic by eminent scholars. Currently, she engages worldwide as an International Expert and Practitioner on Leadership Development for sustainable and equitable change. She works with United Nations, Universities, Management Institutions, governments, business, media and civil society organizations. She is the Tata Chair Professor at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.
As a practitioner, her proven track record of generating measurable results at scale, as well as enhancing leadership on every continent, is unique. She brings this experience and capability to all her work. She designs and facilitates programmes for whole systems transformation and leadership development in both developed and developing countries. Using cutting–edge transformational approaches and methodologies, the purpose is to achieve measurable and sustainable change in development, business and peace. She fosters results-oriented partnerships with governments, civil society, business, media and United Nations. She also designs and implements workshops – “learning –in-action programmes” – with both business and non-profit organizations on different aspects of Leadership Development for Equitable and Sustainable Change. She engages with over 20 organizations, mostly global.
Formerly, as Director of Leadership and Capacity Development, United Nations, she designed and facilitated programmes for whole systems transformation and leadership development around the world with a focus on the 50 least developed countries, with measurable results.
Monica Sharma designed and directed large programmes globally, and lived and worked extensively in both developing and developed countries – in Africa, Asia, Arab States, Eastern Europe, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America. For example, she developed and implemented transformational leadership programmes in 40 countries generating multiple innovations and large-scale results impacting 4.5 million directly and another 130 million in the context of HIV AIDS as the global Director of the HIV/AIDS programme of United Nations Development Programme.

She led teams for policy formulation, strategic direction and programme development in 60 countries, building multi-stakeholders partnerships with governments, media, civil society and business.
She has published and presented over 250 articles in journals and international forums.
Monica Sharma created and uses a unique response model based on extensive application –a conscious full-spectrum model- which simultaneously in time solves problems, shifts systems and creates new patterns sourced from individual inner capacity and transformational leadership. This model has generated sustainable results worldwide. In her recent book ‘Radical Transformational Leadership ‘ she describes how we can source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness and courage. Everyone has the potential to be a leader–a person who creates a new future–through action in society, at home and at work. This book lays out a detailed plan for unleashing our human potential to create a new future through strategic action.
She fosters emerging leaders world-wide – proactively seeking out potential leaders, unleashing their power of effective creativity, enabling them to manifest their full potential. These leaders recognize the invisible, multiple patterns and systems that shape societal and planetary situations and actions; they distinguish, design and deliver actions sourced from self-awareness and empathy; manifest sustainable and equitable change, creating new patterns as they solve problems.
Monica Sharma describes how we can source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness, and courage. Drawing on more than twenty years of work for the United Nations and elsewhere, she presents a radical new approach to transformational leadership, one that creates systems of change where everyone can engage—not just analysts and policy-makers. Demonstrating that we all can be architects of a new humanity, Monica demystifies policy-making, planning, and implementation so that everyone can play an informed and strategic part in eradicating the world’s most intractable problems….
