Episode Description

What is the real nature of transformation? What kind of leadership is required to achieve it? Transformation is a shift in the nature of things. If we maintain the old conversations about making the world predictable, measurable, individual-focused and leader-driven, nothing will change. Yet change is needed. Today, leadership requires sophistication in how we convene people and the conversations we host. Leaders must value listening over speaking, relationship over technology, gifts over deficiencies and possibility over problem-solving. Transformational leadership is about being host, not hero. Join Host Kate Ebner and Change Leader and Peter Block, change leader and best-selling author of The Abundant Community, for a big conversation that challenges conventional wisdom about leadership -- and shares what you can do as a citizen to shape our future. This program is an invitation into possibility and transformation for leaders and communities.
