LEADERSHIP INNOVATION LUNCHEON
for Graduates of the Leadership Pilgrimage and anyone interested in the Institute for Soul-Centered Leadership
Thought leaders and wisdom teachers agree that we are living on the cusp of a new way of leading and being
in the 21st century. They agree that if we are to survive and flourish we must move from an economy based on
egosystem, that is, me and what I can get for myself, to an economy based on ecosystem, that is, an economy
based on the good of the whole. This is an economy that bases its success not on the gross national product but
rather on the wellbeing of the whole. As Margaret Wheatley has stated, “A culture focused on individual freedom
can only result in narcissism, polarization and loneliness.
What is the meaning of life when it is all about me?”
Join Patty Speier and Joe Barry as they lead us in
an exploration of what it means to be a leader in the
interspiritual age who can play a pivotal role in “facing
reality, claiming leadership, and restoring sanity.”
