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: Prithvi Mahadevan
Young Architects Transforming their Profession
Join us for a conversation with Prithvi Mahadevan, an architect. She shares how the 2015 floods in Chennai, India, became the impetus for systematic action. She talks about reimagining solutions with a different outlook for disaster management and disaster preparedness. Solutions to the problems in a city lie in our capacity to design and implement programs that transform the very construct of the problem, where we integrate short-term and long-term thinking. There is a need to reimagine solutions by harnessing knowledge and technology to create new patterns and systems and find solutions that are inclusive, equitable and sustainable.
Prithvi is focused on generating breakthroughs in the sector of Architecture and Education, by creating a new design for sustainable and equitable change where there is a transformation of existing architectural practice and curriculum, transform everyday conversations, meetings and routine activities in the institution by sourcing our inner power, shifting norms and systems and generating impact and results. Her initiatives provide opportunities for practitioners and students to learn how to shifts current norms, systems and structures and deliver tangible and measurable results, grounded in their inner capacities. Prithvi says that in this day and age of technology, everything has become more about ‘the outside’ –How one looks or How one talks etc.— from a superficial outward layer, which is easy to change. But as humans, and more specifically as change agents, it is time to look within ourselves to source the inner power as a basis of action which would be much more meaningful and strong.

Bio: Prithvi Mahadevan is a young Architect by profession and a passionate urban enthusiast by heart.

She strives to generate methods to create innovative, lively and sustainable cities for people and with the people.

She works with the final year students in their Urban Design Studio and Thesis studios where the main aim is to cultivate responsibility as Architects for society.

Radical Transformational Leadership: How to Become the Change Agent the World Needs Now
October 11-14, 2019
A weekend retreat with Dr. Monica Sharma and Megan Joseph, MA, where you will engage with a radical new approach to leadership. You will explore how to access your inner capacities to work differently and expand reach and your effect.
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 pioneered the strategy for “whole systems transformation” for reducing maternal mortality in South Asia, addressing women’s rights and leadership at all levels. 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….
