What is our role in creating healthy organizations and a healthy world? Creative Social Change fosters a unique dialogue on the interconnections between leadership, sustainability, the long-term viability of the planet, and organizational development. Brought together, these arenas of research and action can influence events globally and contribute to creating a healthy society. The book builds on interviews with five eminent social scientists, thought leaders for many decades on the nature of organizational and societal development: Robert Quinn, Otto Scharmer, Edgar Schein, Peter Senge, and Margaret Wheatley. It includes contributions on what is needed for change from longstanding creative scholar-practitioners such as Riane Eisler and Karl-Henrik Robert, as well as new voices, and concludes with a variety of concrete case studies from around the world about efforts in this direction. Embracing all levels of thinking, from the conceptual to the concrete, the book generates a foundation for scholarly research and proposes practical questions that can be used for dialogue and action among leaders, policy makers, and organizational consultants.

"What is our vision of a healthy person, organization, or world? How do we dream together a world both economically sound and spiritually profound? Leadership for a Healthy World is a valuable and timely resource for leaders, educators, activists, and visionaries dreaming together the new story for an interdependent world. No longer solving isolated problems, this book ushers in a deeper conversation about where we are gong as a species and how we can be in a new relationship with the land, with nature, community and our own highest self." (Alan Briskin, PhD, author of The Stirring of Soul in the Workplace, Daily Miracles, and The Power of Collective Wisdom) ----- "Kathryn Goldman Schuyler has curated a fierce, brave book that offers immense hope whilst looking our future square in the eye. The voices presented in this book embody a powerful, inspiring collaborative effort that harnesses a diversity of wisdom traditions to urge a return to wholeness, relatedness, inclusivity and interdependence. It calls for us to detox and heal ourselves and our world as we, as ancestors of the future, imprint our stewardship on this planet." (Dr Chellie Spiller, Associate Dean Maori and Pacific, University of Auckland Business School) ----- "This book throbs with the aliveness of wise thinking, deep questions, exciting narratives and innovative global change projects for generating a more healthy and sustainable world. Reading it gave me hope, enthusiasm and new ideas for practical actions I can implement within my own leadership and organisations. Kathryn Goldman Schuyler has skillfully edited a collection of the most profound and powerful thinking, dialogue and guidance; especially for those in leadership positions. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone wanting to assure their own wholeness alongside a genuine legacy of making the world a better and healthier place to live, work and lead in." (Dr Lynne Sedgmore CBE, Former Chief Executive of 157 Group, Centre for Excellence in Leadership UK, Debretts 500 list, UK, 2015) ----- "We have the technology to create a healthy world. Now we stand at the precipice of the last, great frontier in making this happen - our relationships with one another. This wonderfully insightful and actionable book helps all of us to make the leap." (Chris Ernst, Changemaker, Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and Author, Boundary Spanning Leadership.) ----- "21st century enterprises are awakening to a simple fact of modern life: achieving commercial success without preserving the health and well being of our world is a fool's errant. Leaders who want to confidently embrace this challenge of building a truly healthy world should carefully read Dr. Schuyler's book." (Michael Carroll, Author of Awake at Work and The Mindful Leader) ----- "This book combines and offers elegant theory, hard-earned wisdom and real-life solutions in the service of transforming complex systems from pathology to health. As I have worked in leadership development in South Africa for more than 25 years (a country with its own share of shame, pain and hope, and a host of wicked problems), I am skeptical when I open a new leadership book. My skepticism faded as I read, as I encountered ideas and shared experiences that deepened my thinking and stirred new creative impulses. If enough leaders embrace the thinking and practical possibilities described here, then the vital attitude of simultaneously caring for our psyches, our communities and our one precious planet may become a mainstream way of being." (Helene Smit, Author of Beneath - Exploring the Unconscious in Individuals and Depth Leadership) ----- "At a time when people know what must be done, but the deeper issue is how to make it happen, this guide to deep change does not offer the definitive answer, but rather experiences, models and actions that can help us look at our own communities and make a d
