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.

RTL is an extra-ordinary approach and methodology created by Dr. Monica Sharma and described in her award winning book Radical Transformational Leadership.

Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply?

Guest Speaker: Sarah Emmert

Transforming Community Responses to Public Safety

We invite you to a discussion with Sarah Emmert Sarah Emmert, Director of Community Impact with United Way of Santa Cruz County. For the past 12 years Sarah has been working on social justice issues, ranging from educational advocacy and racial equity, to working with those that have been impacted by the criminal justice system. Sarah has come to value the importance of strategic design, collaboration and building relationships with community and diverse stakeholders, especially when working on complex social issues and systems change. Sarah is a community organizer working to transform how the community addresses and responds to public safety issues.

Explore how anyone can be a transformational leader. Sarah will share what it takes to be one, based on her learning and practice. Being a transformational leadership takes much intentionality- creating time for design and reflection; but in doing so the investment generates much greater outcomes and result. Sarah shares: being a transformational leader required humility, a willingness to examine ones’ thoughts and actions – asking what’s missing?; what needs to shift?; What should be retained? Not from a space of doubt or negative self-talk, but from a space of emergence, growth and deep commitment to creating a better world for generations to come. It is important to always come with a beginner mind; to SEE challenges as opportunities.

A system delivers what it is designed to do. We invite you to hear what happens when we design differently to make a difference. There is a power in using the Conscious Full-Spectrum Response Model- in tapping into not only mine, but in other’s inner capacities. In doing so, it transforms relationships, it shifts conversations, it informs strategic actions. It ensures accountability. It has allowed numerous committed individuals to asked questions that create a space for new solutions; for a co-creation of equitable immediate and long-term sustainable results –both at the same time.

We need to meet the immediate needs of the most vulnerable members of our community AND we need to shift unworkable systems and norms at the same time. For example, with COVID-19, we need service providers and funders who support the community with basic needs – rental assistance, food, access to health care; AND at the same time, we can and must design these interventions in ways that address the root factors that are creating disparities and unhealthy outcomes in our community. Reflecting on the recent racial justice uprising – we need to rally in the streets – calling attention to the inequities; and we need to work with the systems and cultural norms to push for and support shifting policies and practices

Most importantly, each one of us, have the potential and possibilities to generate equitable change in this world. It is our choice to do so.

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 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.

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….
