Margaret Wheatley is president of The Berkana Institute and an internationally acclaimed speaker and writer. She has been an organizational consultant and researcher since 1973 and a dedicated global citizen since her youth. Her first work was as a public school teacher and urban education administrator in New York, and a Peace Corps volunteer in Korea. She also has been Associate Professor of Management at the Marriott School of Management, Brigham Young University, and Cambridge College, Massachusetts. For the past decade, she has been working with an unusually broad variety of organizations on all continents. Her clients and audiences include large corporations, government agencies, healthcare institutions, foundations, public schools, colleges, major church denominations, the armed forces, professional associations, and monasteries. All of these organizations are wrestling with a common dilemma--how to maintain their integrity and effectiveness as they cope with relentless pressures for speed and change in chaotic environments. But there is also another similarity: A common human desire to live together more harmoniously, more humanely.
