Dear Friends:

Welcome to the 2nd edition of our monthly newsletter where we recommend videos, podcasts and articles in the field of transformational leadership. We will continue to publish longer book excerpts and new scholarship in the Mobius Strip, our transformational leadership magazine. 

This month we share a video of Mobius Snr. Expert and McKinsey Director Emeritus, Zafer Achi. Recorded during last year’s Next Practice Summer Gathering, this is a very informed  encapsulation of how to work with and embrace complexity in your organization and a refined articulation of how to think systemically when attempting large scale change work. 

It's also a timely reminder that places are filling for this year’s June gathering. Register here.

In recognition of the Feast of Saint Valentine, we’re also delighted to share a podcast which offers a brilliant summary from family therapist and Mobius Snr. Expert, Terry Real, on how to get what we need from those closest to us. Finally,  Jennifer Goldman-Wetzler, our global Director of Coaching, is live from the Googleplex, where she shares 7 practices for mastering difficult conflict.
