About the call
Much of modern society is built around the assumption that we are separate from everyone and everything. Institutions, organizations, and groups set up using this paradigm reinforce separation in the ways they define and pursue success, leading to outcomes that can degrade both people and the planet—sometimes despite the best of intentions.
Join this conversation with Dr. Kathleen Allen to discuss a different model, one that uses nature as a source of inspiration in designing and leading organizations. Based on themes from her book Leading from the Roots: Nature-Inspired Leadership Lessons for Today's World, this conversation will explore how to apply the generosity found in ecosystems to human organizations so that individuals, the organization, and the larger community all thrive.
