  The world doesn't change one person at a time. by Margaret J. Wheatley Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute



Quotations from Margaret J. Wheatley:

 A leader these days needs to be a host -- one who convenes diversity; who convenes all viewpoints in creative processes where our mutual intelligence can come forth.

Margaret J. Wheatley, Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute



 In this new world, you and I make it up as we go along, not because we lack expertise or planning skills, but because that is the nature of reality.

Reality changes shape and meaning because of our activity.

And it is constantly new.

We are required to be there, as active participants. It can’t happen without us and nobody can do it for us.

Margaret J. Wheatley, Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute
Leadership and the New Science 



 The old ways are dissolving and the new has not yet shown itself. If this is true then we must engage with one another differently, as explorers and discoverers.

Margaret J. Wheatley, Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute
Leadership and the New Science 



 Conversation is the way that humans have always thought together. In conversation we discover shared meaning.

It is the primal human organizing tool.

Even in the corridors of power, very little real action happens in debate, but rather in the side rooms, the hallways, the lunches, the times away from the ritual spaces of authority and in the relaxed spaces of being human.

In all of our design of meetings, engagement, planning or whatever, if you aren’t building conversation into the process, you will not benefit from the collective power and wisdom of humans thinking together.

These are not “soft” processes.

This is how wars get started and how wars end.

It’s how money is made, lives started, freedom realized. It is the core human organizing competency.

Margaret J. Wheatley, Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute



 In spite of current ads and slogans, the world doesn't change one person at a time.

It changes as networks of relationships form among people who discover they share a common cause and vision of what's possible.

This is good news for those of us intent on changing the world and creating a positive future.

Rather than worry about critical mass, our work is to foster critical connections.

We don't need to convince large numbers of people to change; instead, we need to connect with kindred spirits.

Through these relationships, we will develop the new knowledge, practices, courage, and commitment that lead to broad-based change.

Margaret J. Wheatley, Speaker, Writer, Consultant & President of The Berkana Institute
