Friday May 4, 2007 – World Café and Public Presentation – Meg Wheatley

In addition to an afternoon World Café, Meg Wheatley will deliver a public presentation entitled Whatever the Problem, Community is the Answer. As we speed past one another in this increasingly rushed time, we often fail to notice what we’re losing – the power of working together. Trust, intelligence and motivation tend to decrease as we fail to work together. Dr. Wheatley will draw attention to the intrinsic power of community, visible in many cultures but fast deteriorating in Western culture. She will describe simple processes that work to bring us back together so that we may enjoy the benefits of healthy working communities. Meg writes, teaches, and speaks about radically new practices and ideas for organizing in chaotic times. She works to create organizations of all types where people are known as the blessing, not the problem. Dr. Wheatley is co-founder and President Emerita of The Berkana Institute, a charitable foundation serving life-affirming leaders around the world, and has also worked as an organizational consultant and professor of management in two graduate programs for many years.
