Margaret Wheatley is one of the most innovative and influential organizational thinkers of our time. For years, she has written eloquently about humanizing our organizations and helping people work together more effectively and compassionately. She has shown how breakthroughs in chaos theory and quantum physics can enable organizations to function as responsive, self-organizing living systems where creativity and commitment flourish, rather than cold mechanisms of control. Provocative, challenging, at times poetic, and often deeply moving, Finding Our Way touches on all the topics Wheatley has addressed throughout her illustrious career, showing how she has applied the ideas in her books in many different situations. ''The pieces presented here, '' she writes, ''represent ten years of work, of how I took the ideas in my books and applied them in practice in many different situations. Everything written here represents my current views on the subjects I write about.'' Incorporating her photographs and poetry in addition to her prose, Finding Our Way sums up Wheatley's thinking on everything from leadership and management to education and raising children in turbulent times, from societal commentary to specific organizational techniques, and more
