More About the Author

After decades working within organizations pointing out the emperor has no clothes, I realize no one wants an emperor. It's time to focus my skills and experience making large-scale change to catalyze a societal shift. The social revolution isn't only needed in distant lands. It's needed under our feet, wherever we stand. My books and my work with people across the globe focuses on the change in our midst and the chance we have to make a difference.

Called by some a "blank page systems architect," serving as senior counsel to executives, corporations, politicians, governments, non-governmental organizations, and schools, I work with big-vision leaders, impact entrepreneurs, and unreasonable thinkers, ready to use their superpowers for good.

I just published a 2nd edition (fully updated) to The New Social Learning: Connect, Collaborate, Work (ATD, June 2015), authored Learn More Now (John Wiley & Sons, 2004), co-authored Creating a Learning Culture (Cambridge University Press, 2004), contributed to Changing the World of Work: One Human at a Time (Change Agents Worldwide, 2014) and Leading Organizational Learning (Jossey-Bass, 2004). I also wrote the forewards to Opting In by Ed Brill (IBM Press, 2013) and Engaging Learning by Clark N. Quinn (Jossey-Bass, 2005). In addition, I contribute to Fast Company magazine and have appeared on ABC's World News This Morning and the BBC, as well as being quoted in the Wall Street Journal and Fortune magazine.

When I'm not on a plane or facing big challenges on the ground, I reside in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley with my husband, son, mother-in-law, 17 turkeys, 3 red foxes, a black bear, dozens of deer, and millions of raspberries.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 4 Nov. 2004
Format: Hardcover
This collection of essays would make the perfect gift for that friend who loves nothing more than to curl up with a human resources manual. The fruit of a colloquium held at the University of Virginia's Darden Graduate School of Business Administration in 2002, it brings together a wide range of contributors, spanning the spectrum from A to P - from academics who write about learning to practitioners who implement learning programs in corporations. The quality of the essays is uneven. Some of them are so chock-full of jargon that they could only make sense to a knowledge management consultant. Others are clear enough to be practical, at least in the hands of an insider. While the theoretical and abstract dominate the discussion, a couple of real-life case studies by actual executives bring the book down to earth. We recommend this compendium to practitioners in its field. They will particularly love the stimulating reflections of an Australian-born CEO who unabashedly professes his admiration for the great white shark and expresses the fond wish that his employees would approach learning in the spirit of great whites in a feeding frenzy.
