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: Kirsten Gallo

In the midst of many benefits technology has brought about– increased life-expectancy, higher levels of education, energy in our homes, connections through the internet, access to materials, employment—one out of every six of us in this world live on the very brink of survival. As change agents, how can I plan for what I do, and intentionally design my strategies and actions to change this situation? How can I learn to create the architecture for wellbeing of people and a thriving planet?

I am the unifying architect designing differently to make a difference. Do I choose to be a principled game-changer and change those norms and systems that exploit people and/or the planet? Do I generate worldviews emanating from who I am, what I stand for, and for our oneness? Designing differently to make a difference, tapping into my pattern mind innate in us, and making the link with our everyday life and work, results in breakthroughs. The question no longer is, “Am I a small player or a big player?” The question is “Am I a universal value-based strategic player?” Everyone can learn to design initiatives with the potential to make a significant and enduring change, whether they are small or big. They all matter.

And this applies at home, in our workplace and in society.

Fallacy: If we can identify the problem and its causes, and we have the right technologies, we will be able to solve the problem. We are not solving the problems because we are not investing enough time and money in technical solutions.

New Learning: The complex problems of today are the result of multiple interdependent causes. As we invest in technologies to solve problems, we must simultaneously address the cultural norms and systems that maintain the conditions giving rise to these problems. To address the root factors of these problems, the universal values unpinning our humanity needs to be the foundation of our dynamic and impactful engagement. And we must learn to design differently to make a difference.

Bio: When Kirsten Gallo was a little girl, she wrote a note to the deer and bunnies in her back yard promising to always take care of them. She loved to skip through the woods and sing to the trees.

She held a variety of positions in the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service conducting natural resource monitoring and stewardship of public lands. She holds a doctorate degree in Ecology and has dedicated her career to conserving natural resources and demonstrating interdependence between humans and our environment.

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.
