Monica Sharma, Radical Transformational Leadership

Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 7:00pm

Bookshop Santa Cruz is pleased to present Monica Sharma for a discussion and signing of her new book, Radical Transformational Leadership, which presents Sharma's new approach to transformational leadership. Demonstrating that we all can be architects of a new humanity, Sharma demystifies policy-making, planning, and implementation so that everyone can play an informed and strategic part in eradicating the world’s most intractable problems.

Using real life examples from around the world, she shows how our innate human attributes of universal compassion, our equity impulse, and human capability can create new patterns.

Monica Sharma, trained as a physician and epidemiologist, worked for the United Nations more than twenty years. Currently, she engages worldwide as an International Expert and Practitioner on Leadership Development for sustainable and equitable change.  She works with United Nations, Universities (e.g. University of Virginia, Johns Hopkins), Management Institutions, governments, business, media and civil society organizations. She is a Tata Chair Professor at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai. She has published and presented over 250 articles in journals and international forums.

“The survival and future of humanity and civilization depends on the framework Monica Sharma outlines Radical Transformational Leadership.
It is my sincere hope that anyone who wants to participate in healing our wounded planet will read this book and follow its principles.” —Deepak Chopra

“Monica Sharma’s voice, based on experience and conviction, strengthens the case that leadership can be shaped with
equality, freedom, and justice, rooted in the transformational power of human compassion.” —Aruna Roy, sociopolitical activist, 2000 Magsaysay Award

“Anyone who doubts that the changes needed to lift our world beyond the chaos of today’s deep problems and political chest-thumping need look no further than this book. The ‘new field’ she describes as ‘radical systems and cultural transformation’ constitutes a kind of invisible renaissance emerging around the world of understanding the entwined inner and outer nature of genuine systemic change.” —Peter Senge, MIT, and Academy for System Change

“In this astonishing and deeply inspiring book, Monica Sharma invites us on a journey that is both life-changing and world-changing. Drawing on her rich experience and profound wisdom, she shows us how we can tap our inner and outer potential as leaders to help transform the world. I recommend it highly!” —William Ury, co-author Getting to Yes and author Getting to Yes with Yourself
