A Call to Wholeness: Empowering Organizations through Possibility
By Susan Taylor & Jan Byars
Living in a fragmented state changes our hearts, minds, and bodies. Most of us know this as a feeling of overwhelm or burnout. We know the words, but often do not really understand their impact on our lives, our work, the people around us, and our organizations. Thankfully, it just takes a leap of faith and willingness to emerge from a fragmented state to answer the call to Wholeness. Told as a fictional story underpinned by Bohm’s understanding of Undivided Wholeness and Dialogue, Jan Byars, PhD, and Susan Taylor combine years of experience in counseling and coaching both individuals and organizational leaders to offer hope and help to those desiring to move from the turmoil of overwhelm and burnout into a peaceful state of clarity and coherence. In a follow-up section enhanced by tools, practices, and resources, Byars and Taylor provide trusted guidance that invites others to plant the seeds of transformation, explore self-care, and ultimately uncover their own path to Wholeness. A Call to Wholeness shares a story about accepting power and recognizing possibility that is enhanced by tools and exercises that guide others into a new paradigm for life and business.

By Joseph Jaworski
As he did in his classic Synchronicity, Joseph Jaworski once again takes us on a mind-expanding journey, this time to the very heart of creativity and deep knowing.
Institutions of all sorts are facing profound change today, with complexity increasing at a speed and intensity we’ve never experienced before. Jaworski came to realize that traditional analytical leadership approaches are inadequate for dealing creatively with this complexity. To effectively face these challenges, leaders need to access the Source from which truly profound innovation flows.
Many people, including Jaworski himself, have experienced a connection with this Source, often when called upon to respond in times of crisis—moments of extreme spontaneity and intuitive insight. Actions simply flow through them, seemingly without any sort of conscious intervention. But these experiences are chance occurrences—ordinarily, we don’t know how to access the Source, and we even have a blind spot as to its very existence.
In an extraordinarily wide-ranging intellectual odyssey, Jaworski relates his fascinating experiences with quantum physicists, cognitive scientists, indigenous leaders, and spiritual thinkers, all focused on getting to the heart of the Source. Ultimately, he develops four guiding principles that encompass the nature of the Source and what we need to do to stay in dynamic Dialogue with it.
Using the combination of narrative and reflection that made Synchronicity so compelling, Jaworski has written a book that illuminates the essential nature not only of visionary leadership but also of relationships, consciousness, and ultimately reality itself.

Presence: Human Purpose and the Field of the Future
Co-Authored By Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski & Betty Sue Flowers
Presence is an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning. In wide-ranging conversations held over a year and a half, organizational learning pioneers Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers explored the nature of transformational change—how it arises, and the fresh possibilities it offers a world dangerously out of balance. The book introduces the idea of “presence”—a concept borrowed from the natural world that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts—to the worlds of business, education, government, and leadership. Too often, the authors found, we remain stuck in old patterns of seeing and acting. By encouraging deeper levels of learning, we create an awareness of the larger whole, leading to actions that can help to shape its evolution and our future.
Drawing on the wisdom and experience of 150 scientists, social leaders, and entrepreneurs, including Brian Arthur, Rupert Sheldrake, Buckminster Fuller, Lao Tzu, and Carl Jung, Presence is both revolutionary in its exploration and hopeful in its message. This astonishing and completely original work goes on to define the capabilities that underlie our ability to see, sense, and realize new possibilities—in ourselves, in our institutions and organizations, and in society itself.
