In this month’s newsletter we encourage you to download, read and share the link to the latest edition of our magazine for transformational professionals, the Mobius Strip.
In it you will find book excerpts, interviews and the latest scholarship representing the world-class faculty for the Next Practice Institute’s Summer Gathering.

In addition to the three pieces we highlight each month, you will find a comprehensive selection of thought leadership from NPI past and present in the NPI Reading Room of our website. This includes video recordings of last summer’s keynoters: Professor Otto Scharmer; Mobius President and Co-Founder Erica Ariel Fox; Mobius Senior Experts Zafer Achi, Jennifer Garvey Berger, and Dr. Srinivasan Pillay.
We are also very pleased to feature Tinker Dabble Doodle Try, the latest in mastering our own creative powers from Mobius Senior Expert, psychiatrist and assistant clinical professor at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Srinivasan Pillay.
We hope you enjoy our magazine and these online resources and look forward to seeing many of you in just two weeks’ time!
We are delighted Bob Anderson, creator of the Leadership Circle Profile (LCP), joins us at the June Summer Gathering. The LCP is considered by many to be the most complete leadership model and assessment technology available. Integrating the best psychological, leadership, and spiritual development frameworks in a single tool, the LCP surfaces internal and behavioral issues as the basis for a leader’s transformational development. In addition to Bob’s article in the Mobius Strip outlining the development of the tool and some of the specific dimensions it measures, we also recommend this 2-minute video which introduces the idea of creative versus reactive leadership.
We all know levels of engagement at work remain dismal and continue to decline. For many of us, addressing this is at the center of what we do. We are therefore honored to have Tony Schwartz, CEO and Founder of The Energy Project, deliver a keynote at the Summer Gathering. Tony is the author of What Really Matters: Searching for Wisdom in America, the co-author of the international bestseller The Power of Full Engagement. He most recently authored The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working, which has also gone on to be a NYT and WSJ bestseller. In his piece for the Mobius Strip Tony shares research conducted jointly by The Energy Project and Harvard Business Review, which demonstrates how meeting our core needs – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – is the key to boosting and sustaining organizational performance and enriching our working lives.
“Access to your ingenuity is more important than living out someone else's dream.”
