Book: "Leading from the Emerging Future: From Ego-System to Eco-System Economies" by Otto Scharmer
http://www.ottoscharmer.com/publications/books
https://www.amazon.com/Leading-Emerging-Future-Ego-System-Eco-System/dp/1605099260

Overview:
 
Our Time is Now

We have entered an age of disruption. Financial collapse, climate change, resource depletion, and a growing gap between rich and poor are but a few of the signs. Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer ask, why do we collectively create results nobody wants? Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our economic logic and operating system from an obsolete “ego-system” focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole. Filled with real-world examples, this thought-provoking guide presents proven practices for building a new economy that is more resilient, intentional, inclusive, and aware.

This thought provoking discussion will be co-facilitated by Igor Gorlatov and Walt Frye.
 
As a reminder, you don't have to read the book to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!
  
During this roundtable we'll:
 · share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
 · share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
 · share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
 
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions in 2018, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group.  The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
