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? with Monica Sharma
Guest Speaker: Jean Houston
Social Artistry and Radical Leadership for Whole Systems Transformation
We invite you to a discussion on whole systems transformation Jean Houston, Ph.D., a world-renowned scholar, philosopher, educator and a recognized pioneer of the Human Potential Movement. We will explore elements of a vision of a world in a state of positive transition. What is the new story for our time that embraces whole system transition? We must encourage inquiry of what it takes to shape a planetary civilization attuned to nature and elevate and deepen discourse and dialogue on global affairs. Deepening and strengthening the inner life and its interconnectedness to the whole will leads us to explore new forms of spirituality for a global era. Do we know how to deal with complexity and encourage the growth of an informed Global Civil Society?
What training programs do we need to design and deliver that prepare people for resilience, action and results? What is there in the unique givens of our evolutionary nature to inspire the emerging new story and the radical changes and challenges that go with it? We can discover ways of transcending and transforming the local self so that extraordinary life can arise. We will learn how to create the architecture of whole systems transformation. And so, we find that each one of us really can make a difference.
There is no question but that a larger life is latent in the human species and that we live only a small part of the life that is given. This means however that one agrees to relinquish those limited and limiting patterns of body, that is sensory and motor patterns, of emotions, of volition, of intelligence and understanding, and of spirit. that have been keeping us from becoming all that we can be. And allowing ourselves to instead become available to the extraordinary dimensions that each of us contains for much larger life in body, mind, and spirit. Leading to new ways of designing and implementing policies that shift the current destructive paradigm to one of a world that works for Earth and life on this planet.
We will discuss how we enhance human solidarity through honoring cultural and developmental differences; and discover the ways and means of the social artist AKA the radical transformational leader, who can help individuals, organizations and cultures move into the evolutionary agenda.

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.
