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
Arts and Social Change Webinar is hosted by RTLArts focusing on the power of the arts to create sustainable value-based change.
RTLArts presents a live webinar featuring international artists who practice Radical Transformational Leadership (RTL) to create art based on equity, dignity, and compassion. Hear how they have inspired audiences to care for the wellbeing of all beyond privilege, bias, and prejudice to address the systems and norms that are not working; and to the stigmatizing people based on race, class, gender, caste, tribe, nationality, and religion. RTL is an extra-ordinary approach and methodology created by Dr. Monica Sharma and described in her award winning book Radical Transformational Leadership. RTL is based on the unique Conscious Full Spectrum Response model about how to source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values of dignity, compassion, and fairness, and simultaneously transform unworkable systems and cultural norms to solve problems.

Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply? Guest Speakers: Barbara Clifton Zarate and Megan Joseph
We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For
We invite you to a discussion with Barbara Clifton Zarate and Megan Joseph.
They discuss how to break patterns in philanthropy. They point out: it may be hard, but it is not impossible. We can learn to think differently– we are in a place of possibilities right now. Right now, we have an invitation, an invitation on this planet to transform. Our work must be based on principles and values, on ethical leadership, on effective and responsive philanthropy, on challenging the current paradigm and creating a new one. What we measure we will move. How do we shift counting widgets, to paying attention to indicators related to outcomes and equitable and enduring impacts – to see whether the needle is moving, whether lives are better off, our water is cleaner, our earth is protected, and so on.
What can we do differently in philanthropy?
- Advance Equity and Inclusion and Make Equity a Through-line in All Investments
- Invest in Effective Collaboration and ethical leadership development
- Strengthen Nonprofit and Community Ecosystems
- Support Movement Ecosystems
- Listen deeply, invite conversations, and learn from grantees, members of the community and diverse experts; and simultaneously shaft the disempowering social and cultural narratives.
- More than grant dollars…Leverage assets such as knowledge, connections, reputation, access, influence, and the freedom to take on difficult or controversial issues to give beyond dollars.
Barbara Clifton Zarate and Megan Joseph invite us to reflect on the issues we are experiencing today, from a global pandemic, to the impacts of climate change to civil unrest and demand for racial justice. These are issues caused by human and systemic patterns that are hundreds of years old. Generations have been fighting to change these patterns and build more just and sustainable systems. And it is the shoulders of these generations that today’s movements stand on– that give us the openings, the shifts in consciousness, the courage to dismantle what is not working; and at the same time, generate new effective alternatives in today’s context. Philanthropy plays a key role in generating and sustaining deep systemic transformation, and they have a responsibility to meet this moment with courage, innovation and strategic action.
Guest: Barbara Clifton Zarate’s academic and professional background is in public health and philanthropy. She has dedicated the last three decades of her career to addressing the inequities and disparities that so many are negatively impacted by, and transform the systems that perpetuate them. She championed initiatives to address poverty, health access, education equity, and grassroots community advocacy and leadership development. She has worked on issues of basic human needs, such as access to food, housing, and water. Barbara stands in solidarity with Indigenous Water Protectors across the globe in opposition to the extraction of fossil fuels and the protection of our sacred water and Mother Earth.

She is the author of the book “Radical Transformational Leadership” which has been describes as a path-breaking classic by eminent scholars.

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.

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….
