A very provocative read that challenges many of the leadership paradigms of the 20th century. The primary goal of this book is to examine how we can make life less arduous and more delightful. Margaret Wheatley  and Myron Kellner-Rogers challenge us to think differently about how to organize human activities. To me, the essence of the idea is that life tends to self-organize. Networks, patterns, and structures naturally emerge without external imposition or direction. The hypothesis is that “organization” wants to happen naturally in a way where things can get done and people can be at their best.

I guarantee this book will challenge your thinking. I also guarantee that it will enlighten your thinking, as well.
