Radical Transformational Leadership with Dr. Monica Sharma

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.

Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply?
Guest Speaker: Bridget Horkan

Transformative results for humanity across cultures

Knowing who we are, sourcing our universal values and wisdom constantly for courageous strategy and compassionate action, brings enduring results and ensuing dignity for all human beings. When we loosen the stranglehold of exclusive and divisive social identities, we create a vibrant and peaceful future for ourselves, for one another, and for generations to come.

A fundamental question for us all is: Are we humans more than a compilation of social characteristics? Or are we profound conscious human beings?

This work and praxis allows us to see that our personal selves are not separate from our professional and political selves in all cultures; and that everyone can contribute to radical transformation. Significant change is possible by starting where you are standing, by designing for results with specificity and by doing things differently, anchored in universal values. Each of us have the power to make a difference no matter what level of formal or informal leadership role we have, through the way we nurture our families, the conversations we shift in our communities, societies and workplace.

We will share examples of how ordinary people are courageously creating extraordinary change, inspiring us to act and generate transformative results. Let’s ask ourselves: will we, each one of us, answer the call to generate equitable and sustainable futures?

Tenth Episode: Guest in the 2nd segment: Bridget Horkan

Bio: Bridget Horkan grew up as the eldest of a big family in the west coast of Ireland which brought her into early leadership and a strong sense of collectivity and interdependence. She was shaped by a strong sense of justice and the values of care and service to the whole. A formative turning point in her life was as an aid worker in post genocide Rwanda, this experience shook her to the core and cracked open an intense period of questioning both world order and her own internal conditioned patterning.

There was a profound resonance the first time she heard the charter of the international township of Auroville with its call for human unity with constant inner and outer progress at its core. She recognised it was also her dream and held the potential for progress and evolution. Bridget move to Auroville in 2005 and has co-founded Thamarai projects a series of educational platforms dedicated to fostering full potential in local communities.

The stewardship for new emergence work has given her the ability to be passionate about what she really cares about, to align this to what she sees as needing to change in the world and in giving her the resources for value based action. She has seen the youth that are the Thamarai team unfold through this work and move from dependency to see themselves as instruments of change in their communities. The stewardship training was pivotal in shaping a series of educational projects, a campaign aimed to tackle addiction and violence and in opening up a space of equality and opportunity for the workers of Auroville.

Bridget aspires to dedicate her life to unfolding potential and she is committed to working for the fullest that she and other can be.

Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply? with Monica Sharma
Guest Speaker: Hazel Henderson

Prosperity and wellbeing: beyond money and GDP

We invite you to a discussion on prosperity and well-being with Hazel Henderson. Hazel Henderson D.Sc.Hon., FRSA, is founder of Ethical Markets Media, LLC (USA and Brazil), a Certified B Corporation. She is a world renowned futurist, evolutionary economist, a worldwide syndicated columnist, and author of award-winning Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy (2006) and eight other books. She created the Ethical Markets TV series in global distribution at www.films.com, the EthicMark® Awards, the Green Transition Scoreboard® and co-created Ethical Biomimicry Finance®.

We will examine societies’ obsession with money as the primary measure of all things: personal self-worth, companies’ success, the progress of nations-even the value of social achievements, literature and the arts. how much money a movie makes at the box office (however violent); is a book a best-seller, the homage paid to the richest 400 in the world. We all know this story!

Yet being a good parent, volunteering in the community, starting a movement to save children from traffickers, protecting the environment or an endangered species—all supposed to be done for love—-not money. We’ll explore how the worship of money came about; why economic textbooks ignore this unpaid “love economy” that actually is the foundation of all societies, why the work of women in raising children and caring for the home, the sick and elderly is termed “non-economic”. The truth, of course, is that money is not wealth—but simply information that tracks and keeps score of our activities, production and use of nature’s resources.

These obsolete economic ideas focusing on money are slowly giving way to broader measures from the money-denominated GDP to the united nations sustainable development goals (SDGs). The new award book “Radical Transformational Leadership” outlines how social progress goes beyond conventional rules, models and economies. It challenges the old models and empowers us toward making positive social change.

The basic question: how can we transform money-focused market fundamentalism and work toward universal prosperity?

Dr Monica Sharma 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.
